In a new 5G or 4G LTE world, where the control and user planes are separated (known as CUPS), obtaining coherent visibility of sessions is more challenging than ever. The physical separation of the user-plane traffic from the control-plane traffic, often in different locations, makes it difficult to associate the GTP user-plane tunnel sessions with the user or equipment identification.
With Gigamon 5G and CUPS Correlation, 5G and LTE CUPS mobile operators can now intelligently forward subscriber sessions to specific tools by filtering on subscriber, user device, RAN or network slice IDs — including ranges down to a specific, unique ID. Other benefits include:
- More efficient, effective tool processing throughput
- Improved analytics accuracy from reliable correlation of subscriber sessions
- Maximized quality of experience and monetizing services
- Increased reliability in accounting, billing and subscription management
It’s all part of Gigamon Subscriber Intelligence solutions made specifically for service providers.
Plus, be sure to take advantage of our new bundled GigaSMART® apps to be subscriber-aware!
