As per the agreement, Avea has installed the turnkey solution which includes IrisView, the Iris analyzer toolset and the Iris Performance Intelligence solution in Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara to monitor data service traffic across their network.
Tektronix’ Iris suite of products are designed to give operators additional insight into the end-to-end management and operations of their networks.

These products are noted to offer Avea with greater insight and visibility into how its network and services are performing, and help the company to provide a better end user experience for its customers.
