Abstract

The present article describes the design principles and the main features of a traffic mass measurement and analysis system that has been developed at the TSP Lab and is already in everyday use at a large GSM network operator since 1999 for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. On one hand, it can collect a large amount of signaling and call data and, on the other hand, it provides a near real time tracing of mobile calls and their detailed, on-line analysis. The system is based on a new soft testing principle and distributed computing therefore it has been able to cope with the explosion like increase in traffic to be handled as well as with the continuous demand for new services.
