Benchmarking & Dedicated Measurements_ 

 

Service quality in mobile and fixed networks, radio signal strength, network elements performance – these are typical areas where CelluQual measurement services can provide solid answers. 

 

Benchmarking measurements enable mobile operators to assess the quality of their networks in relation to their competitors. Indoor measurements carried out as walk tests help corporate customers select best mobile network in a given location. Tests carried out in Lab environment are used to do functionality and performance comparisons of network elements. Such tests are typically done under heavy data traffic load. 

Measurements

 

Benchmarking measurements of mobile networks is the best way to perform an independent assessment of key performance indicators (KPIs) related to services and compare mobile operators. Results of such measurements are used by operators to improve the quality of their networks and services. Increasingly operators use the results of benchmarking tests to formulate marketing communication based on quality of services. Benchmarking is also comonly used by market regulators to provide an independent view of quality of mobile services in a given country.

 

The philosophy of benchmarking is to do tests that imitate real usage of mobile services by end-users. They are performed as hundreds of test calls and data connections done simultaneously for all measured operators using identical test phones and modems. With ever changing usage patterns of mobile services we update our test scenario to reflect how people use their mobile services and what is really important for then when it comes to quality of experience of mobile services.

Typical Report KPI's

 

  • Radio signal data gathered with radio scanners

  • Voice services related KPIs

  • Data services related KPIs

  • Assessment of issues impacting services accessibility

  • Assessment of issues impacting quality of experience as perceived by end users

The measurements done by CelluQual are performed using SwissQual Diversity test units mounted in cars or a portable SwissQual Ranger unit used for walk tests in indoor and outdoor locations. Measurements are carried out using advanced terminals and modems that can utilise the latest technologies such as LTE, HD Voice, Youtube, streaming services, multi-RAB.

 

Data gathered during measurements is analysed in a post-processing system and results are stored in a data warehouse. Thanks to expert knowledge of our team we can perform advanced analysis of measurement data and provide recommendation which issues affecting the quality of services can be improved. Data post-processing and reporting processes are automated which allows us to produce sophisticated reports in a very short time.
