Evaluating Aviz Service Node capabilities using the Spirent Landslide ability

5G PlugFest Summary

Introduction:

Aviz Service Nodes(ASN) enhance network visibility, which operates on general-purpose hardware and offer significant cost savings and optimal performance. ASN provides essential Subscriber intelligence by metadata extraction and correlation for 4G-LTE, 5G-NSA, and 5G-SA networks to achieve comprehensive network analytics.

To validate accuracy and performance along with the KPIs of the ASN product, we utilized the Spirent Landslide to emulate the 5G and 5G-NSA components.

Landslide is a versatile platform designed to test and emulate 5G and O-RAN mobile networks on both traditional and cloud-native infrastructures. It simulates real-world traffic from millions of mobile subscribers to extensively test the 5G core in standalone and non-standalone configurations.

Metadata Extraction and Validation:

ASN works on different 5G-SA, 5G-NSA and 4G-LTE interfaces for metadata extraction and achieves the correlation between User and Control Plane. It involves identifying, retrieving, and verifying relevant metadata from various interfaces of Telecom networks, to ensure its accuracy and consistency. Effective metadata extraction and correlation by ASN are crucial for ensuring better data management, analysis, and decision-making.

"The comprehensive metadata extraction and correlation capabilities of ASN are designed to provide unparalleled network insights, ensuring our clients can make informed decisions quickly and accurately."

Handling Handovers:

In 5G networks, handover entails shifting an active call or data session from one cell or base station to another. The ASN manages the smooth extraction and correlation of control and user packets throughout this handover process. The ASN possesses the capability to manage all potential handovers in both 5G and 5G-NSA scenarios.

Application identification:

The primary purposes of identifying applications in telco traffic are traffic management, quality of service (QoS), security, billing, and analytics. ASN’s deep packet inspection identifies applications using the Server Name Indication (SNI), application IP address, destination port and application behavior.

Performance and scalability:

The ASN possesses the capability to manage a maximum of three million subscribers in both 5G and 5G-NSA networks. Additionally, it extracts and correlates control packets for a user plane traffic of up to 150 Gbps. The ASN’s validation includes handling mixed packet sizes of traffic equivalent to real-world scenarios.

Landslide's ability to emulate complex 5G network environments has been instrumental in validating the high performance and scalability of Aviz Service Nodes, ensuring the solutions meet the rigorous demands of modern telecom networks.
