Telefonica Argentina selects visibility solutions from Gigamon

Telecom network operator Telefonica Argentina has selected visibility solutions from Gigamon to optimize its subscriber service offerings.

Gigamon solutions will assist Telefonica Argentina to gain insight into subscribers’ content usage and adjust service offerings accordingly. Telefonica Argentina is also working with Gigamon to increase its network performance and optimization capabilities.

“Telefonica Argentina is always looking for ways to increase customer satisfaction, and by teaming with Gigamon we are able to spot usage patterns and adjust our services as needed,” said Duncan Campbell, IP Backbone and Infrastructure Manager, Telefonica Argentina.

“Gigamon has helped us gain visibility across our entire network and identify and address issues as soon as they arise. During the deployment process, Gigamon helped us to troubleshoot a DNS Cache Server Farm performance issue, resolve it remotely avoiding a possible service outage,” said Alberto Bernal, Telecom Network Planning Engineer, Telefonica Argentina.

Telefonica Argentina is utilizing a number of Gigamon solutions and technologies including several GigaSMART applications for traffic intelligence.

Telefonica Argentina gained visibility into more than 32 x 10Gbps IP/MPLS links by combining Gigamon’s Aggregation Solution, GigaVUE-TA1, and the GigaVUE-HD8 Fabric Node with the GigaSMART applications implemented as part of a Visibility Fabric architecture.

The GigaSMART feature set reduced the traffic that needed to be processed by the tools, resulting in a 10:1 cost savings ratio for Telefonica.

Telefonica Argentina can streamline the introduction of new technologies such as VoLTE, IMS and CDN to its network and reduce operational and performance impact.
