Napatech Release Enables Monitoring & Troubleshooting of Mobile Data Networks

Napatech announces the release of essential technology for detailed monitoring and troubleshooting of IP-based mobile data networks. According to the market research firm Infonetics, by 2010, data traffic will surpass voice traffic on mobile networks. This is driving investment in fourth generation all-IP mobile data networks, such as LTE, which will extend the need for IP network monitoring, analysis and troubleshooting appliances.

Napatech has recently added key features to its widely deployed intelligent real-time network analysis adapters to support mobile data networks. These include full and comprehensive support for IPv6 including relevant extension header, a requirement for LTE, which will require an IPv6 address in each hand-held device. Napatech has also included support for automatic recognition of key tunneling protocols used in mobile data networks, such as SCTP, GRE and GTP. This allows intelligent flow definition based on which tunneling protocol is being used. It also allows these flows to be intelligently distributed to multiple CPUs allowing parallel processing of mobile data.
