MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — Acme Packet, which Oracle is in the process of buying for $2.1 billion, has unveiled Palladio 3.0 to help service providers migrate to IP networks, reduce operational costs, increase customer satisfaction, prevent voice fraud and minimize churn.
Acme Packet says the solutions provide real-time monitoring, troubleshooting and analysis of next-generation service provider IP networks – including IMS, LTE, and consumer and business voice over IP (VoIP).
Palladion, a non-intrusive monitoring solution, consists of three new management options: Communications Operations Monitor to track network signaling and media in real-time and enable detailed troubleshooting capabilities; Fraud Detection and Prevention to discover and prevent voice fraud; and Control Plane Monitor to track and troubleshoot Diameter signaling traffic in IMS and LTE networks.
“By enhancing their portfolio with Palladion 3.0, Acme Packet not only provides security, reliability, and interoperability, but also real-time analysis, monitoring, and troubleshooting for next-generation networks," said Diane Myers, principal analyst, Infonetics Research.
“Palladion 3.0 will revolutionize how service providers understand their next-generation networks," said Pat MeLampy, Acme Packet’s chief technology officer. “Acme Packet’s instant fraud detection, real-time troubleshooting of call quality issues, deep drill-down into media, SIP signaling, and Diameter, as well as innovative probe design will deliver a full view of any type of IP network to service providers."
