5G & Virtual Probes

The “Non-Stand Alone” (NSA) architecture, where the 5G Radio Access Network (AN) and its New Radio (NR) interface is used in conjunction with the existing LTE and EPC infrastructure Core Network (respectively 4G Radio and 4G Core), thus making the NR technology available without network replacement is fully supported with Argela NCA solution.

Argela NPM has the means to support the slice monitoring which is a concept introduced by 5G technology:

  • It collects performance indicators per network slice
  • It automatically detects the newly created slices by utilizing Network Slice Subnet Instance (NSSI) or through configuration
  • It is fully integrated into orchestration module - Network Repository Function (NRF) to be aware of the resources newly introduced into the network

 

Although competitors use MANO, Argela NPM uses ONAP method for virtualization.

Internet of Things (IoT) which is a concept introduced by 5G will have a great impact on the architecture of today’s performance monitoring systems. Argela NPM has the capacity to monitor billions of objects, personal, home and business devices in real time.
