Enabling the 5G Experience

Affordable and scalable visibility to deliver highest quality 5G network services.

Optimize the Costs of Monitoring and Securing 5G and CUPS Networks

The expectations for 5G couldn’t be higher in terms of new services, business opportunities, low latency, tons of bandwidth and secure networks. The required investment is huge.

Traffic visibility is crucial for 5G to succeed, however, given the ever-increasing growth in network traffic, the anticipated explosion of devices and the even more disaggregated architecture of 5G and CUPS networks.

Gigamon Hawk, the Hybrid Cloud Visibility and Analytics Fabric™, offers an ideal combination of subscriber awareness, application awareness, data reduction, data transformation and traffic delivery capabilities. Benefits include:

  • Lower tool spend by doing more with the same or less
  • Higher-quality services, a more secure network and a better reputation
  • Reduced new network element evaluation times
  • Faster deployment of new services
  • Improved management oversight
  • Shorter times to troubleshoot and locate faults

Empowering Mobile Core Operations

Acquire Traffic from Your Specific 5G Core

There are numerous different ways a 5G Core can be deployed, from physical to virtual machines to containers, and it depends on how you choose to implement your network function virtualization infrastructure (NFVI). GigaVUE® Cloud Suite allows users to select from a range of traffic acquisition methods:

  • G-vTAP Module for tapping virtual machine workloads
  • G-vTAP Container for tapping containerized workloads
  • Built-in mirroring services, such as OVS Mirroring, service communication proxy mirroring, or service mesh mirroring

Leveraging the built-in mirroring services includes close integrations with 5G Core and infrastructure vendors, such as Ericsson, F5, and Nokia.
