"...My advice: dont waste time to build and maintain your own monitoring tools, use 5gVision to instantly upgrade your network with real-time monitoring!"

Convenient Call flows

The best way to start investigating a call is, of course, a Call flow of all the packets.

  • Appealing Call flow charts with clickable packets to view their contents.
  • Call flows can show all legs and hunt attempts of a call if they are called from CDRs.
  • Easily remove the legs you dont need and share the rest with your partners.
  • Get .pcap files of only the chosen legs right from Call flows.

Packet viewer

View contents of just one packet, one leg, all legs in a call, or any manually chosen packets in one window.

  • Compare contents of 2 or more packets in parallel viewing windows.
  • Get a stamp on top of each packet with its capture time, direction, and IPs.
  • Easily navigate H.323 packets via collapsible tree structure.

Media collector

Quite often the only way to troubleshoot a problem is to listen to the actual media of a call.

  • Collecting all media even for a medium-size carrier will require a lot of resources. However, most of the time, a small portion of recorded media is enough to get to the bottom of an issue.
  • Media is collected either randomly for preset IPs or source/destination number patterns, or totally for a short period of time.
  • You will be able to listen to each recorded call in any codec and view waveforms with indication of when a connect happened.

IP whitelist

Knowing if any unauthorized IP started sending traffic to your network can be vital.

  • 5gVision will collect information on every customer IP that your switch is processing traffic from, and will show you all of them.
  • If you recognize an IP, you may add it to a whitelist. Once a new IP that is not white-listed sends a certain number of invites or setups, you will get an alert.
  • The 5gVision IP whitelist may be a good safeguard not only from external intrusions, but also from your own engineering staff. Only a limited number of people managing your switch may have a right to add IPs to a whitelist.

Highly productive sniffer

The 5gVision sniffer that collects signaling logs and writes them to the DB supports continuous CPS of up to 1000 in the mirroring mode.

  • If setting up mirroring is not possible, packets can be collected over SSH. 5gVision will connect to your switch nodes with a user that is limited to running only one command: tcpdump. The extra load to your node's CPU will be withhin 5%.
  • Just another way to collect packets is to process .pcap files that you may have collected yourself.
