Satisfied with 5×9 Networks
It’s not just about better connectivity or faster workflows. It’s about putting your user first.
Agile and Cost-Efficient Cloud BNG
“More operational cost savings. Boosted investment efficiency. Higher Internet speeds and flexibility.”
5×9 Networks vBBRAS System
In the autumn of ’19, HT took on a new direction. Their new software-defined telco strategy propelled the cloudification of wireless core and wireline access network functions on all levels. But how could HT reapply this innovative, disruptive approach to legacy-fixed hardware? Easy – with a fresh, cloud-native BNG solution.
The key was to see if COTS hardware, advanced by modern server design and software-designed approach, makes way for substantial savings per Gbit on broadband traffic. But HT couldn’t do it while taking a CapEx-intensive approach, like they did while depending on hardware. So they went for an innovative software scale-out model. We’ve tailored the Virtual BBRAS Forwarder (vBF), Virtual BBRAS Controller (vBC) and Virtual Dashboard (vDB) to their needs.
To meet their vision, we based the BNG design on Intel DPDK open source SDK that works wonders with packet processing workloads. A solid foundation, which allowed us to develop a turnkey broadband edge solution. HT was even able to start testing during the second quarter of development, and within just one year we came out with a highly optimized solution. HT was able to move to a uniform cloud-native infrastructure, shedding the need for excessive and expensive hardware.
User satisfaction, above all
“There’s nothing like it out there. Others focus on a few network elements. 5×9 Lightweight covers them all.”
5X9 Lightweight Monitoring System
Today, outstanding user experience is synonymous with a smooth WiFi connection. But there’s a whole range of factors that impact the way users connect and use the Internet. Combis was looking for a solution that could check the end-to-end experience of their users, from dial-up to browsing.
Most solutions focused only on a handful of network elements, and that wasn’t enough. So Combis decided to have them all firmly under control with 5×9 Lightweight Monitoring System.
5×9 Lightweight updates Combis on their system, making sure they’re the first to know if anything needs their attention. Whenever an issue in the system appears, 5×9 Lightweight zones in on it, alerting Combis with a clear report and giving them a head start to intervene before their users even notice. This proactive approach to monitoring and fault repair supports Combis to reach the highest standards of user satisfaction.
