  • Sample files for mock predictions were restored.

  • Comprehensive Service Coverage was enabled to support troubleshooting across services, including:

    • Support for 5G SA Connectivity Service*

    • Support for 4G & 5G NSA Connectivity *

    • Support for VONR

    • Support for Special Services E911

    • Support for 5G SA Mobility EPSFallback

    • Support for 5G SA Data (if available)

  • Internal sign-up options were removed from the sign-up flow for increased usability.

  • The expandable Element’s Detailed Information panel was added to the Sequence Diagram to display Descriptions and Details for network elements.

Iteration 67

What’s New

  • Reintroduction of Legacy features on the new UI, including:

    • The ability to select specific results to explore them in depth.

    • Tallys of: the total number of call flows, the total number of network elements, the total number of protocols, and the total number of procedures.

    • The Call Flow Details card displays: Start Date and Time, Duration, IMSI, MSISDN, Device Type, B Number, Call Lag, and Header Size.

    • The Results tab includes Protocol Level Analysis, Flow Extractions, Call Flow (multi-view), and KPI Analysis.

  • Call Flow Details can be expanded and collapsed, allowing users to zone in on Call Flow diagrams (the Sequence Diagram & Topology Diagram), ProtocolLevel Analysis, Flow Extractons, and Diagnostics.

     

Bug Fixes

Iteration 68

Track, visualize & analyze subscriber-specific activity for network troubleshooting & optimization.

What’s New

  • AGILITY’s new High-Level Summary page allows you to identify analyses with the highest failure rates at the outset of the troubleshooting process. (Individual subscribers are classified by Impacted International Subscriber Identity (IMSI number).

  • Improved fonts for increased readability.

Bug Fixes

  • User access to partially completed ML analysis sessions has been blocked to prevent user-end confusion. Partially completed analyses will remain “In Progress” while the backend retries the prediction multiple times before determining that the analysis has failed.

Iteration 69

What’s New on the UI

  • Isolate Root Casues with Diagnostics: Users are now able to view the root causes for network errors; AGILITY’s new Diagnostics tab uses deep root cause analysis to expose the root causes for network errors.

  • Enhanced readability of Protocol Level Analysis HTTP2 sublabels.

  • Added HTTP2 Details to Callflow Visualizer and Flow Extractions. On the Sequence Diagram, users can filter by HTTP2 if the protocol is http2 or SIP. On the Call Flow Details page, under the Flow Extractions tab, users can select a sequence and then select the message’s Attributes button to view metadata for the selected frame number.

What We’re Doing Behind the Scenes

  • Monitoring and Observability: We’ve created a dashboard with stats that monitor our tool's performance, including:

    • average time spent parsing each chunk of call flows,

    • average time spent preparing analytics

  • Test automation: We enhanced test automation by adding 19 new automated tests covering Auto Detection, 5G Mobility service, and High-Level Summary.

  • Added VONR Call detection based on HTTP2, VoLTE to our ML model library.

  • Created a VS Code SME Tool kit to help troubleshoot offsite

  • Set up end-to-end (E2E) test automation for sequence and topology diagrams. Our E2E testing includes tests validating the following:

    • all network elements are presented,

    • all domains presented without unknowns,

    • correct network elements are assigned to the correct domain,

    • there are no duplications of network elements in each domain, the numbers of network elements, or the protocols detected,

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue wherein AGILITY’s backend service accepted null and undefined user IDs.

  • Remedied inaccurate depictions of connections between disconnected network elements on the Topology diagram (Such as connections between User Equipment and the Mobility Management Entity.

We’ve also added Yellow exclamation point error icons.

  • Filter by Message: On the sequence Diagram, users can use the Messages filter to refine the results depicted on the diagram.

  • Comprehensive Protocol Level Analysis: On the Call Flow Details page, under the Protocol Level Analysis tab, we’ve exposed more protocol attributes. Initially, the Protocol Level Analysis tab exposed SIP & HTTP2 protocols. Now, the feature also exposes PFCP, GTPV, S1AP_NAS, and more.

  • Service Auto Detection Update: We’ve added a popup on our new Service Auto Detection Feature to inform users that occasional processing errors may occur as we continue to improve the feature’s performance.

Iteration 71

What’s New on the UI

  • Multi-File Processing: AGILITY now allows users to process multiple files uploaded in a zip in a single analysis.

  • Multi-File Processing Email Notifications: We’ve set up new email notifications that complement multi-file processing. Users who process (a) network analysis/analyses receive a notification email summarizing the analysis/analyses run. The email notification also lists files where call flows weren’t detected, prompting users to take remedial action when necessary.

  • User Feedback on Predictions: For continuous ML Model improvement, users can now provide feedback concerning the accuracy of call flow analysis results. Feedback icons are located on the Call Flow Details screen, where users can select thumbs up to agree with the analysis result or thumbs down to disagree.

  • Display Analysis Results for Partially Analyzed Call Flows: Now, AGILITY displays partial results for incomplete analyses. This means that data will still be available for review when a file is stuck in the processing status.

    • 4g-5g-NSA

    • 5g-SA
