Frost & Sullivan Honors Anite for Developing Triton, its Revolutionary Wireless Protocol Analyzer

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — 18 November, 2014 — Based on its recent analysis of the wireless protocol analyzers and network monitoring systems market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Anite with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. The latest wireless protocol analyzer to roll out of Anite’s product stable, Triton, is a key innovation that has redefined the market with its extreme precision during network error detection and analysis.

Triton is a strong response to mobile operators’ and network equipment manufacturers’ desire to deliver optimum quality of experience (QoE) in a complex, long-term evolution (LTE) core network. As a multi-functional protocol analysis tool for the core LTE space that possesses a host of irreplaceable functionalities, it is truly invaluable to customers.

Triton efficiently handles the exponential growth in data traffic and signaling in LTE networks by leveraging its unique, highly scalable data capture capability (4×10 GbE). Such a core capability helps to conduct all-inclusive analyses and allows the user to automatically detect and streamline network traffic by extracting the data of interest for capture and storage.

“Further, being preloaded with simple-to-use application packages and a user-friendly graphical user interface, Triton facilitates the execution of the testing processes better than any competing solution,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Rohan Joy Thomas. “Fit for use across any network environment, Triton’s automatic survey ability provides real-time diagnosis and analysis of the network data.”

Frost & Sullivan observes that Triton’s impeccable diagnosing capability and multi-functionality have elevated user experience. Triton enables users to play back traffic recorded from a live network in an R&D environment, aids the offline analysis of recorded traffic, and exports it to pre-recorded captured (pcap) traffic file-compatible tools. It also assists customers in the seamless analysis of LTE traffic and tactical field testing. Such a robust and diverse set of application areas clearly helps to enhance the customer value and position the company ahead of the competition.

Triton is aptly designed for network signaling and authentication of data performance. It offers reliability and outstanding user satisfaction with its value-added benefits such as a distinctive graphical user interface and portability across varied technological settings. It efficiently supports multiple applications such as network discovery, roaming analysis, cell visualization, and device tracking. Additionally, its capability to support mobile operators validates the interoperability of its multi-vendor components in the field, as well as in a lab environment. This, in turn, results in a substantial cost-savings as only a single tool is required to carry out a diverse range of tests.

“Triton delivers optimum user satisfaction by passively monitoring the expected performance of the core (EPC) interfaces by connecting through a 10GbE (or multiple)-aggregated optical link across lab and field environments,” noted Thomas.

Frost & Sullivan expects that a strong customer-centric approach, the provision of a robust technology, and a wide range of solutions will allow Anite to continue being a top contender in the wireless core network testing systems market.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that hasdeveloped an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers customers, which, in turn, increases customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.

Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for exceptional achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research.
