PERFORMANCE AUDIT

Performance audit is one of the primary areas of focus in an overall network audit. This service targets the evaluation of the network based on design goals versus the performance achieved. The dynamic nature of mobile network caused by network expansion, subscriber growth, new service launch & wireless environment creates multiple challenges for the operator to know exactly where the performance of the network stands compared to the design objectives. By collecting large amounts of network data we can evaluate the network quality from an end-user perspective and find out where the network bottlenecks are and where there is potential for network performance improvements.

Forecast the demand for system capacity: Analyze the traffic characteristic and traffic model, geographical distribution of the traffic density, predicts the traffic growth trend and provide the corresponding resource adjustment suggestion.

Evaluate the network performance from subscriber perceptions: E2E performance audits helps operator in finding out the root cause for customer complaint, the real network coverage and service quality condition.

 

Benefits
