Anritsu make LTE ready for large scale deployment

Anritsu, a global provider of Operations Support Systems (OSS) for advanced and converged networks, announced today that they have successfully deployed MasterClaw™ in multiple LTE networks to provide seamless multi-network monitoring solutions across 2G, 3G and 4G networks.


Copenhagen, Denmark, 26 January 2011 - Anritsu A/S announced today that they have expanded several existing MasterClaw™ Service Assurance systems to include the capture of LTE events. Telenor Norway is one of several network operators that are now able to troubleshoot service affecting problems in LTE using the same capabilities of MasterClaw™ that they already use for GSM and UMTS. 

Large scale, successful deployment of LTE depends upon the ability to integrate the OSS for LTE with existing processes and OSS systems. Mobile broadband users expect high speed access to the same services, with the same high levels of reliability, whether they are using LTE or HSPA and operators need to deliver the same Quality of Service. These subscribers migrate between access technologies without thinking of the complexity of the task to support their use of high speed mobile data. The challenge for network operators is to find solutions to provide this service at a competitive price and still generate profits for their shareholders. MasterClaw™ is an important component in meeting this challenge. With seamless multi-network support, Anritsu provides a single portal to manage network and service performance cost effectively and efficiently.

 “MasterClaw™ simplifies complex networks, enabling faster detection and correction of problems, improving service quality. The MasterClaw™ system’s ability to provide a seamless view of 2G, 3G and 4G streamlines network operations, cuts capital expenditure, and reduces training requirements. With one query, an engineer can retrieve all information about a user’s recent activity, even if they have jumped between networks.” said Neil Tomlinson, Marketing Director.

“With LTE, we are continuing our strategy of maintaining one product line for all technologies. MasterClaw™ now captures events on GSM, GPRS, UMTS and LTE networks, and supports network operations, planning, partner management, device management, customer care, sales and marketing activities. This breadth of functionality in one system is increasingly making MasterClaw™ an essential business support system” said Robin Wheeler, Vice President Global Sales & Business Development.

MasterClaw™ with LTE support is available for immediate delivery to new and existing MasterClaw™ customers.
