Polystar, a global supplier of analytics, service assurance and automation solutions for the telecom industry, today announced that Hi3G Sweden – a long-time Polystar customer – has added 5G capabilities to the existing and proven Customer and Service Assurance solution.
Based on a common platform, the OSIX and KALIX systems span all deployed network assets, which include GSM, UMTS LTE, Wi-Fi, and 5G mobile networks; circuit and packet switched core; IMS and a diverse value-added service footprint. In addition, the real-time network data they collect provides a valuable resource to fuel big data analytics and 3rd party applications.
Together with strategic partner Cubro, Polystar has delivered a scalable and advanced network monitoring platform that caters to the increased demands of the NFVI and 5GC infrastructure.
“Polystar and Cubro have already proven our worth and capabilities over many years to Hi3G, enabling new levels of customisation and adaptability,” noted Stefan Eklund, Vice President Sales from Polystar. “We are honoured and excited that Hi3G has chosen to continue to work with us on its 5G journey.”
The new data center infrastructure, provided by Hi3G´s 5G vendor, brings multiple 100GE links and advanced overlay networking. Cubro’s network visibility solution was selected to deliver an effective data collection platform. Purpose built for telco cloud environments, the visibility platform supports high port count 100GE interfaces, in combination with advanced VXLAN filtering and load balancing capabilities, to feed multiple different types of probes.
The OSIX and KALIX solutions have already been extended with 5G support. As a result, Hi3G will continue to leverage existing and widely-used features and functions for new 5G services, helping to provide superior customer satisfaction and advanced, real-time network insights.
“We look forward to this continued and deepened collaboration with Polystar and its partner Cubro as an important part of our successful 5G rollout in Denmark and Sweden,” says Per Stigenberg, CTO 3 Scandinavia.
