Sandvine Expands Analytics with Routing Efficiency Dashboard

Sandvine announced the ".. launch of its Routing Efficiency Dashboard, the latest dashboard in its Network Analytics library. Sandvine’s Routing Efficiency Dashboard provides a detailed look into the costly routing and transit links and interconnect relationships that affect operational expenses on fixed and mobile networks".

"The Routing Efficiency Dashboard highlights high-demand traffic using high-cost transit links, allowing communication service providers to reroute traffic toward more appropriate routes such as private peering. Identifying the most efficient links for high-demand traffic creates an immediate cost savings and helps ensure a consistent quality of experience for subscribers. Operators can also measure the quality of links based on their ability to carry rich media and consequently make routing decisions based on quality".

  • The Routing Efficiency Dashboard provides operators with interactive visibility into interconnect relationships, including: Autonomous System (AS) Name & Number; Peak Rate Upstream and Downstream, Video QoE and 2nd Hop and Origin AS drill-down.
  • The Application Analysis tab (see chart) reveals the impact of application traffic across Autonomous Systems (AS): Downstream vs. Upstream Traffic; Hop Level: 1st Hop, 2nd Hop, Origin; Rate at Peak; Daily Average and Video QoE.

  •  Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) information including: Trend Charts and Pie Charts

Don Bowman (pictured), CTO, Sandvine, said: “Large CSPs have many complex peering and transit arrangements and their Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) designates the best available routes for subscriber traffic. Linking route-knowledge to application, cost and quality is an essential part of optimizing network operations, reducing costs and improving subscriber quality of experience
