The FlowVUE® feature is a licensable addition to the GigaSMART® engine that provides subscriber IP-based flow sampling, which enables existing security and monitoring tools to connect to the latest high-speed pipes by providing a representative view of traffic for diagnostic coverage. Unlike traditional diagnostic methods, the FlowVUE feature intelligently reduces the amount of traffic, while keeping the integrity of the data flows intact, but at a lower speed feed within a smaller pipe.
The FlowVUE feature allows for active sampling of a subscriber’s device (known as a user endpoint IP or UE IP) across GPRS Tunneling Protocol user-data plane (GTP-u) tunnels. The integrity of the subscriber flows is preserved by forwarding all the flows associated with the sampled UE IP to the appropriate monitoring and analytic tools.
The Numerous Benefits of FlowVUE
Enhances accuracy of Quality of Experience (QoE) monitoring.
Cost-effectively reduces the amount of data, while enabling Big Data throughput processing.
Further reduces traffic volumes to the tool infrastructure when combined with the advanced filtering capabilities of GigaSMART Adaptive Packet Filtering.
Enables operators to detect and replace inactive devices through user-configurable timeouts.
