Joint Solution Significantly Drives Down Mobile Operators’ CapEx Investments on Monitoring Solutions Needed to Analyze the Exploding Mobile Data Traffic

HILLSBORO, OR, U.S. – February 21, 2018Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a global leader of open telecom solutions, and Microtel Innovation, a Cinetix Group company, today jointly announced a GTP Traffic Balancer and Load Adapter that enables mobile operators to manage their traffic analysis and monitoring effectively and deliver superior Quality of Experience (QoE) to their subscribers. The GTP Traffic Balancer and Load Adapter allows mobile operators to leverage their existing monitoring infrastructure by adding smart session-based GTP balancing and filtering capabilities at an extremely high data rate. Therefore, mobile operators can significantly reduce CapEx investments in traditional monitoring solutions, while making the overall monitoring architecture more efficient and scalable to keep up with exploding data traffic on their networks.    


  • Mobile data traffic continues to grow at an exponential rate, driven by mobile video and OTT services, and will only continue with the advent of 5G. This unprecedented growth is creating challenges for mobile operators as they seek to keep up with traffic analysis and monitoring of all of the data on their network that needs to be processed and analysed.
  • Mobile operators’ traditional monitoring infrastructure is not able to scale effectively to manage the influx of data as it is not designed to correlate the increasing GTP traffic and filter or distribute it effectively to the monitoring probes, thereby losing visibility into the subscriber and the network.
  • Radisys and Microtel Innovation have solved for this problem by designing a powerful, intelligent and extremely high performance GTP Traffic Balancer and Load Adapter that augments the existing monitoring systems by intelligently balancing, filtering and sampling the traffic to the monitoring probes. The solution takes away the need for re-architecting the whole monitoring infrastructure or buying a new set of very expensive high-performance monitoring probes.
  • The joint solution integrates Radisys’ FlowEngine™ TDE-2000 with Microtel Innovation’s technology. The FlowEngine TDE-2000 delivers industry-leading density with up to 2 Tbps L2/L3 and 600 Gbps of advanced packet processing to support future traffic growth driven by 5G and IoT. Microtel Innovation’s solution takes the processed traffic and then correlates the GTP control plane and user plane traffic at an extremely high data rate, delivering industry-best performance.

“With Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Video Chat and now the upcoming onslaught of 5G, augmented and virtual reality and more, mobile operators’ traditional approaches to processing and analyzing traffic on their networks just simply can’t keep up,” said Neeraj Patel, Vice President and General Manager, Software & Services Solutions, Radisys. “That’s why we’ve partnered with Microtel Innovation, which brings deep expertise in monitoring tools and solutions for telecom, to deliver a network GTP Traffic Balancer and Load Adapter that is designed for today’s – and tomorrow’s – traffic. With this solution, mobile operators can future-proof their investments to meet the demands of growing data traffic while allowing them to dramatically reduce CapEx.” 

“We’re bringing intelligence back to mobile operators’ arsenal with the delivery of this smart and high performance GTP Traffic Balancer and Load Adapter,” said Gianni Pompermaier, Microtel Innovation President and CEO. “We partnered with Radisys as its FlowEngine platform delivers industry-best data classification and packet processing capabilities that when integrated with our GTP balancing and filtering technology allows Microtel Innovation to be the industry leader in delivering high-performance solutions to feed monitoring and analysis tools.”
