VSS Monitoring optimizes monitoring infrastructure for MSF VoLTE interoperability event

VSS Monitoring, a provider of Network
Intelligence Optimization solution, announced its participation in the
MultiService Forum (MSF) Voice over LTE (VoLTE) Interoperability Event as the
key monitoring vendor for lab testing at the Vodafone Test and Innovation
Centre in Dusseldorf, Germany .

“To date, 4G has not been able to
carry voice traffic, but that is all about to change,” said Andy
Huckridge, director of marketing at VSS Monitoring.

“With VoLTE as one significant
proposal by GSMA to carry voice on 4G/LTE networks, we are honored to have been
selected as the only monitoring vendor to help advance the event, technology
and industry,” Huckridge added.

To maximize the effectiveness of the lab
test monitoring, VSS Monitoring provided its Distributed Traffic Capture System
for traffic monitoring, and its Test Acceleration System for speeding up the
lab testing. VSS Monitoring provided a platform that captured traces of
possible interoperability failures and inconsistencies to be reviewed after the

“We invited VSS Monitoring to
participate due to its demonstrated support for the forward-moving development
of VoLTE, validating the industry changing opportunity represented by the MSF
VoLTE Interoperability Event,” said Kyu-Ouk Lee, president of MSF.

“VSS Monitoring’s involvement played a
critical role in monitoring, accelerating and optimizing the interoperability
of VoLTE equipment, speeding the deployment of 4G Voice services,” Lee

The MSF VoLTE Interoperability Event
validates key network interfaces that support multi-vendor operator deployment
strategies for LTE/EPC/IMS technologies by identifying factors limiting new
equipment interoperability with commercially available equipment from the
perspective of vendors and operators.

Backed by GSMA, the test results
demonstrated that the GSMA technical recommendations for providing end-to-end
VoLTE were mature and interoperable, however specific issues were discovered
that will be the focus of future work.
