5G is designed to bring faster speeds & lower latency for new business applications, such as autonomous cars, AR/VR, eHealth, and more. Customer expectations are sky-high but even enhanced mobile broadband cannot guarantee the delivery of 5G services at optimal QoE.
As demand inevitably catches up with capacity, meeting SLAs and delivering high Quality of Experience (QoE) will be an ongoing challenge that CSPs must meet successfully. With the growth of encrypted traffic, the dominance of encrypted video, and the prevalence of VPNs, it becomes more and more difficult to distinguish between different kinds of data traffic. This makes it harder to offer differentiated services and to enforce corresponding policies that meet end-user expectations and enable higher-revenue, premium offerings.
Bandwidth demand is driving initial 5G deployments, but the real action will come when standalone 5G enables Smart-X use cases. And Allot Smart will be there to help ensure QoE.Yaakov Stein, VP, CTO Allot Smart BU
Advanced ML/AI techniques get past encryption, obfuscation, and even VPNs to identify application and sub-app traffic
Flexible hierarchical and orthogonal polices enable prioritization of performance-sensitive services to ensure customer satisfaction
Choose from fully containerized cloud-native solutions, virtualized, ETSI compliant NFV deployments, and scalable hardware form factors, all the way up to clustered Tb/s platforms
The Smart5G platform can also, optionally, prevent damage to your infrastructure, services, and reputation by blocking known and unknown incoming threats and by isolating weaponized connected devices
With 5G services, … Automated solutions that both measure and then selectively prioritize critical applications and services (and potentially categories of users such as people or IoT devices) are needed to ensure superior QoE
Ensure QoE, through granular visibility into network, user, app, and device behavior, including encrypted video & VPNs.
Optimal Network Traffic Performance
Prioritize performance-sensitive applications to ensure QoE, especially during congestion, deferring costly expansion.
Enable and enforce tiered services through flexible policy enforcement, while preventing tethering abuse.
Allot Smart can be integrated into the 5G core to provide its rich offering to operators who have migrated their core network to 5G.
The 5G core – implements a Service Based Architecture (SBA) for the control plane, which enables each control network function to interact with the other core network functions and consume their services, over the SBA bus via REST API.
Allot Service Gateway is located on the 5G User Plane and performs DPI functions on the user traffic.
Allot SMP (Subscriber Management Platform) provides the interface to the 5G Core Control Plane. It interacts with the 5G control network functions via the SBA bus, to receive the relevant information related to subscriber sessions, service plans, and policies.
