Intelligence-led insights for mobile networks

Enabling customers to pinpoint and monitor key data from the mass of network traffic. Find out more about how we can help you identify and manage threats and risks at their source:

Data Acquisition
Our Cellular Virtual Monitoring Platform efficiently captures and processes data from a wide range of cellular networks.
Traditional probing solutions for passive monitoring of telecom networks must adapt to meet new demands as network elements transition to network function virtualization and software defined networks. The Cellular Virtual Monitoring Platform is an important step in meeting these challenges, supporting the virtualization of the probe and applications. Numerous vendor variants and network changes including 2G circuit switched networks, 3G, 4G and now 5G packet switched networks, UMTS, HSPA, HSPA+, and LTE have made monitoring even more complex. Illuminate simplifies the network operator’s job by supporting all network types on a single platform, enabling fast setup and operation. Learn more about our Cellular Virtual Monitoring Platform
Network Visibility and Grooming
Enabling efficient troubleshooting and management of mobile network traffic.
Flow Explorer automatically discovers the network elements and protocols of all mobile network technologies, displaying switch statistics and network topologies in real-time. This makes it perfectly suited as a survey and maintenance tool for your network. Learn more about Flow Explorer
Advanced Packet Analysis
Enabling deep packet data insights to identify and capture specific, intelligence-driven streams of data from the mass of network traffic.
Our packet data service enables customers to identify and capture specific, intelligence-driven streams of data from the mass of network traffic. We work with customers to define the focus of their insight requirements and the data packets that are key to their security and threat-prevention programs. This might be specific packet streams or “full take.” The data is captured from the network in raw, packet form which can then be indexed and stored for time-critical retrieval. The result is deep insights for security and threat analysis. Learn more about Advanced Packet Analysis
Roaming Visibility
Using S8 Home Routing will lead to visibility gaps on your network. Without Illuminate Roaming Visibility your organization will be incompliant with legislation as well as being vulnerable to fraud and cyber-attacks on the S8 Link.
VoLTE is today’s roaming technology of choice, bringing significant operational benefits for network operators and end users. But it also results a gap in regulatory compliance, with lost visibility of roaming traffic on the S8 Link. Our LMISF (Lawful Interception Mirroring IMS State Function) solution means this traffic can be captured at this vital link, so operators can provide the necessary visibility and ensure they remain compliant.
