Nakina Systems Finds and Fixes Configuration Errors in Multivendor Mobile Networks

OTTAWA, Ontario--()--Some of the world’s leading Mobile Network Operators are achieving improved network performance, reduced outages, and more rapid turn-up and recovery, as a direct result of Nakina Systems’ Network Integrity Solutions.

Nakina’s suite of products have been certified against some of the world’s leading mobility devices now allowing our customers’ the ability to fully audit complex parameter settings on these devices quickly and conveniently as well as provide operational security, audit and compliance of these networks.

“We’ve applied our expertise to some of the largest and best configured mobile networks in the world," says Mary O’Neill, CEO of Nakina. “Without exception, we find that configuration errors are causing silent outages, service degradations, and increased operations cost. Today we’re announcing our Mobile Growth Initiative, which will allow our customers to rapidly gain the benefits from our products.”

Nakina’s NI-Controller has proven to identify and mitigate outages and degradations caused by misconfigured and misaligned parameters within and between mobility network elements. Physical interfaces between Node-B’s and access routers have been found to be often misconfigured leading to silent failures and degradations such as increased retries and dropped packets. NI-Controller can identify these misconfigurations immediately, which tend to occur after human touch of the network, with human actions during maintenance windows being the root cause of these inconsistencies.

Furthermore, Nakina’s NI-Guardian, Identity and Access Management system ensures that all operations personnel in your organization have access only to the devices within their job function, with the correct access and full recording of each network touch ensuring full audit and compliance.

“Rollouts of IMS, LTE and video networks each introduce millions of new configuration related parameters," said Rob Rich, MD, TM Forum Insights Research. “Our research shows that, over the life of a network, configuration problems are believed to cause more outages than any other type of event, not to mention performance problems, delayed service activations, and in some cases suboptimal utilization of the assets.”

There are thousands of operations personnel that manually touch hundreds of thousands of elements. Each of those elements have hundreds, if not thousands of configuration parameters. Nakina’s NI-Guardian, provides role-based access to limit those personnel only to those elements that they should have access. Even when controlled, audited and limited, humans make errors and NI-Controller, provides the tools to detect and correct those misconfigurations prior to those errors leading to silent failures and degradations.

Nakina’s products are deployed at some of the world’s largest service providers.
