NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Velocent Systems, Inc. (pronounced Ve-loh-cent) today announced its flagship product, the Velocent Session Engine (VSE) 2000. Targeted for mobile service providers (MSP), the VSE 2000 is a low-cost software-based platform providing real-time visibility into mobile data session quality and application usage across the entire delivery chain, from the core network down to a user's mobile device. It identifies service delivery components that are affecting or may affect user experience, such as the cell, application, server, device, network or network element. With it, MSPs can better plan and implement new services and proactively address service problems in real time. These first-ever capabilities in a single solution can enable MSPs to realize a dramatic reduction in customer churn while maximizing average revenue per user (ARPU).

The VSE 2000 is the only all-in-one solution delivering end-to-end visibility into the complete data session's quality and is non-intrusive in its ability to monitor up to one million concurrent sessions on a per user, per session basis from layer two to layer seven. It boasts several unmatched performance measurements that differentiate it from traditionally limited monitoring solutions. Traditional approaches are typically only able to identify if a session is dropped or provide limited monitoring beyond this. Velocent covers this and more at a fraction of the cost and effort to deploy.

"It's not uncommon for an MSP to have a small portion of its mobile customers generating the majority of its net revenue," said Bruce Peterson, President & CEO of Velocent Systems. "The VSE 2000 is so complete it can provide visibility to pinpoint which cell sites have the most number of service affecting instances ranked by 'VIP' subscriber usage to determine where to spend CAPEX and OPEX for maximum effect on net revenue. This is the type of unmatched visibility delivered in the VSE 2000."

For network quality engineers seeking comprehensive visibility, no other solution offers Key Performance Indicators (KPI) for critical measurements such as TCP Round-Trip Time (RTT) to determine latency in and out of the mobile network. Mean User Data Rate (MUDR) for throughput (minimum and peak), selectable also for a specific time period, is another critical measurement made available. As well, end-to-end session quality (TCP congestion) indicators are on hand for assuring server / client TCP session integrity. Another critical and exclusive measurement involves the ability to identify TCP and UDP conversation / streaming connections ended abnormally (dropped sessions). KPI information and encoding conforms to 3GPP / 3GPP2 standards.

"There is no doubting the continued strong growth of mobile data services and their importance to MSP revenues," added Peterson. "With so much riding on these advanced services, MSPs must have a strong ability to manage data session quality and the VSE 2000 nails it by giving them the only all-in-one solution to do it end-to-end. Such never-before-available visibility empowers MSPs to reduce their churn and maximize ARPU."
