Solution brief - R&S®GSRM for enhanced filtering and forwarding in the mobile core

Using GTP correlation to power traffic management, policy control and network security

R&S®GSRM solution brief - DELIVERING SUBSCRIBER AWARENESS FOR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT, POLICY CONTROL AND NETWORK SECURITY VIA GTP CORRELATION ANALYSIS

With the rapid growth in subscriber numbers and traffic across LTE and 5G NSA networks, real-time session and subscriber awareness provided by R&S®GSRM equips mobile operators and vendors in the traffic management, policy control and network security space with complete visibility into user sessions in the core network. This enables operators and vendors to enhance their traffic management, policy control and network security functions with granular policies that correspond to subscriber attributes while also taking into account session-specific parameters.

Traffic management: Via intelligent load balancing, R&S®GSRM enhances subscriber-aware traffic management with real-time, dynamic traffic decisions as its implementation allows different sessions to be accorded different policies.

Policy control: Incorporating R&S®GSRM in an NPB that forwards traffic to policy control subsystems paves way for dynamic policy control where policies are meted out based on not only subscriber identity but also cumulative usage, traffic performance and applications accessed during a session

Network security: Mobile network security tools such as intrusion prevention, web filtering, DDoS prevention, content filtering, firewalls and SSL inspection benefit from real-time subscriber identification supporting network security functions not only in identifying the forces behind malicious activity on the network but also in instituting, in real-time, mitigation measures.

Network automation: The full visibility into session data accorded by R&S®GSRM will also play a key role in transitioning today’s networks into AI-driven automated networks capable of eliciting the right network response in real time.
