Dorado Software - Infrastructure Management Software.Service Assurance & Fulfillment

Suite of proactive event, applicaiton & servide performance monitoring and traffic flow analysis

For service providers to differentiate themselves they must meet their customers' needs quickly, efficiently and accurately. Providers lose millions of dollars annually because of poor processes during the provisioning process, and partially integrated business and operation support systems force operators into manual and tedious processes such as manual CLI, validation, and data entry.  Manual and tedious processes result in slow, error prone provisioning that ultimately reduce efficiencies, upset customers, and impact cost.

The Redcell Assurance & Fulfillment Solution lets service providers shorten fulfillment processses and eliminate costly errors caused by manual processes, by deploying a proven solution that is customizable, robust and automated. Service providers can configure and provision orders faster and error free. Once services are deployed, it is critical that service providers provide the highest quality of service to their customers. To accomplish this task, service providers need a powerful suite of tools to effectively manage their network and the services that are deployed on their network.

Redcell Broadscope: Active Performance Monitoring

Proactive Monitoring of IT Services Health

Redcell Broadscope Active Performance Monitor (APM) lets you proactively monitor your complete IT service health, including proactively monitoring & detecting the health of devices, networks and services. With Redcell Broadscope APM, you can regularly poll critical health characteristics from multiple sources to immediately identify problems with IT devices, networks & services. It also lets you test and identify transactional problems with application & network services.

Active Performance Monitoring Features

  • Isolate key health attributes & characteristics for IT devices, networks and application/network services

  • Pre-defined Performance Monitors for key 
    • network device attributes-bandwidth utilization, port utilization, packet loss, etc.
    • network services - aggregated network health, service health, DNS, DHCP, AAA, FTP, etc.
    • application services - MS Exchange, MS IIS, DB connectivity, etc.

Redcell Broadscope: PM Analysis

Wireless Network Performance Management

Broadscope provides automated end-to-end network management of today's 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE networks. One of the key applications in end-to-end network management is network performance management (PM). Broadscope plays a fundamental role in ensuring optimum performance in a highly dynamic mobile environment. Broadscope provides operators with both a near-real-time view, as well as a historical analysis, to all wireless network performance metrics in a web-based user interface.

Broadscope supports legacy 2G and 3G networks using sophisticated data collectors and storage mechanisms to collect performance data from network element operational measurement reports and call detail record (CDR). It provides a complete view of both the network's perspective of performance and the user's experience. All traditional traffic measurement and analysis capabilities are supported in Broadscope including Erlang and mathematic operators necessary to compile reports. It gives network operators complete control over what reports are needed and how they are viewed. Broadscope also provides powerful performance management capabilities for 4G/LTE networks and the IP environment utilized to connect them with the core application servers and the internet.

Broadscope provides the foundation functionality for self-optimization (SON) capabilities in both the non-standards based legacy environment and also in the standards based (3GPP) SON environment.

Redcell Traffic Flow Analyzer:

Complete Visibility Into IP Traffic Behavior

Redcell Traffic Flow Analyzer provides complete visibility into IP traffic behavior, usage patterns and network utilization to help identify those users, applications, protocols and conversations that are consuming most of the network bandwidth. This unified solution leverages IP flow analysis to enhance the availability and performance monitoring functionality of Redcell.

When unauthorized or low priority applications hog the network, managers typically respond by increasing bandwidth capacity. Throwing more bandwidth at the problem doesn't always solve the issue, or prevent it from recurring. Unauthorized applications only absorb any additional bandwidth while business critical applications suffer from poor response times. This always results in unpredictable bandwidth availability and network instability that compromises application performance. One approach is to set rate limits to control bandwidth usage by certain traffic, but this lacks the necessary visibility to distinguish between application types and it adds significant administrative effort and processing overhead to the network infrastructure.

Redcell Traffic Flow Analyzer collects and deciphers existing IP traffic flows to determine which applications and/or users are most impacting network and application response times and service levels. It offers better administrative control of unauthorized traffic and protection of valuable bandwidth for critical and demanding business applications.

Redcell Traffic Flow Analyzer also provides comprehensive visibility and reporting of network utilization though deep insight of top usage patterns. It lets administrators pinpoint what applications are consuming the most network bandwidth, what conversations are involved and who are the most active users.


Increased Network Utilization and Performance

  • Comprehensive visibility into how users, applications and protocols consume valuable bandwidth. Presents information in easy-to-understand graphs and reports.

Make Better Infrastructure Investment Decisions

  • Tighten control of network bandwidth and security to provide better QoS for business critical applications and avoid unnecessary expensive upgrades. Accurately analyze the impact of network performance and bandwidth on service deployments.

Resolve Problems Faster

  • Integration of IP traffic flow analysis into the Redcell unified management solution allows for quick problem resolution without the use of multiple point tools. Quickly understand traffic-related problems in the network and assist administrators to be proactive in taking automated or manual actions to remediate issues. Pinpoint degraded network resources to prioritize and remediate problems quickly.

Increase Operational Efficiencies

  • Reduce Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) by leverage the existing infrastructure to expand the breadth, depth and coverage of the overall Redcell management system. Frees valuable resources to work on strategic tasks.

Reduce SW Expenses for Point Management Solutions
