Napatech Advocates Real-Time Big Data Analytics

Nov 19, 2013, 08:00 ET from Napatech

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech, the world's leading supplier of network analysis adapters, today released the latest whitepaper in its "Time to ReThink" series of insights into crucial issues facing network equipment manufacturers. In "Time to ReThink Real-Time Big Data Analytics," Napatech focuses on how telecom carriers can apply big data analytics in real-time in order to manage and monetize Over-The-Top (OTT) traffic.



  • "Real-time" in a telecom context means nanoseconds; changes can occur in Ethernet and IP networks from one nanosecond to the next.
  • Network probes and appliances can be used more strategically as sources of real-time data.
  • Security threats, performance degradations and service opportunities can be detected by developing customer behavior profiles with stored real-time data, which can then be compared to real-time information from the network.
  • Napatech provides guaranteed data delivery and nanosecond time-stamping resolution that enable real-time big data analysis of applications and services used on mobile networks.


Erik Norup, president and CMO, Napatech, said:

"In order to effectively implement big data analytics, telecom carriers look to companies such as Amazon and Google for inspiration. At the same time, they must reconsider what 'real-time' analytics means today. In older, more traditional telecom networks, that meant minutes; today real-time is measured in nanoseconds. Only by using appliances and probes in a more strategic way can carriers offer better, more innovative services to end users. This encourages retention and may even attract new customers, leading to more effective revenue generation from OTT traffic. This may also open possibilities for carriers to become more attractive partners for the OTT players."
