The advent of 5G sees the replacement of purpose-built network equipment with the virtualization and cloudification of network functions. While bringing immense new flexibility to telecom network design, there is a corresponding loss of visibility, making it difficult to troubleshoot network performance. Because of cloudification, the end-user experience is no longer determined by network coverage and performance.
In collaboration with Intel, EXFO has developed a full-stack service assurance solution that combines infrastructure observability with telecom-specific, AI-enabled analytics and anomaly detection. Data from Intel’s observability solution, Intel Platform Telemetry Insights, is paired with synthetic active test data and then fed to the analytics engine at the heart of the EXFO adaptive service assurance platform.
