Network Operations Applications

To keep your communication network running smoothly you need a solution to achieve intelligent service quality through proactive analytics designed to improve user experience and reduce operational costs. From monitoring Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunk group solutions for performance to analyzing call detailed records (CDRs) to solve issues, Ribbon suite of intelligent operations applications enables you to turn Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) into a better Quality of Experience (QoE) for you and your customers.  The Ribbon Intelligence applications suite includes:


Discover, part of Ribbon Protect’s suite of applications, is a powerful tool used for visualizing, analyzing and troubleshooting communication network performance. With Discover, you will be able to perform retrospective root cause analysis with historical data, to identify key network trends and issues over periods of time.

Discover has a modern interactive and intuitive user interface that displays vital network KPIs and provides advanced and customizable reporting dashboards. You can add as many dashboards as you need and display them in a number of formats. Discover allows you to quickly build, edit, and filter dashboards as well as strategically reposition them the way you want to display the data.

Finding and solving real-time communication network issues can be difficult or non-existent without the proper tools or end-to-end views.  The Discover application enables network wide troubleshooting and alerting capabilities on based on KPIs and other metrics that cross thresholds.  Network operators can quickly identify Quality of Experience (QoE) issues surfaced by various dimensions, isolate and drilldown on network problems and ensure quality for their customers.

Furthermore, Discover provides end-to-end SIP call ladder diagrams to visualize and troubleshoot the flow of SIP packets between different RTC network elements. Through a combination of filters, labels, ordering and narrowing-down the traffic you’re interested in, you can generate an easy to follow view across disparate network elements that can assist in debugging and traffic analysis.
