4G Quality of Service Testing

4G Quality of Service

We offer 4G quality of service testing for RAN performance monitoring. Live end-to-end visibility of all your mobile services (2G, 3G and 4G LTE) is available through our Merlin™ solution. You are able to quickly report on the service accessibility, availability, retainability, speed and quality over the geographical footprint.

For most developing mobile operators, 4G LTE services are rolled out based upon subscriber density ‘hotspots’ such as major cities. In these areas, network implementation teams face the challenge of ensuring that the 4G service level expectations are being met, as well as ensuring that the backbone 2G and 3G infrastructure continues to meet the expected service levels for subscribers should 4G services be unavailable.

Our autonomous network monitoring solution Merlin™ actively monitors specific network elements and technologies (2G-4G) by automatically performing real events and recording results from the subscriber’s perspective. Merlin™ is scalable to any geographical coverage; as your subscriber distribution changes, so can your quality coverage.

Included with our Merlin™ solution is our unique set of KPIs which can be used to determine the success of your network and benchmark geographical performance.

Affordable, Simple and Effective Service Assurance Technology

Our service integrity assurance solution utilises our test call generator experience, accumulated from our static, drive and walk services starting back in 1982. Our primary service assurance offering is called Merlin™. This is an effective system that provides end-to-end LIVE test call monitoring designed to offer affordable assurance with a superb technology pedigree. Merlin™ measures network accessibility, service availability, connection retainability and service quality which is ideal for change management, converged or legacy systems assurance.

Our Merlin™ offering in 2020 has been found up to 50% less in price when compared to other similar tools in the market.

Simple Deployment

Deployment of the Merlin™ solution couldn’t be easier, or more sensible. By installing our event generators in retail stores, our clients have found multiple benefits: hotspot coverage, LIVE in store customer experience, on-site support with a quick roll-out.

Flexible Near Real-Time Reporting

This includes SNMP near real time alerting. Map call event failures by voice, SMS, data, location and technology bearer (2G, 3G, 4G, VoLTE, 5G – other technologies available on request).

Results are retrieved within 1 minute and the built-in alarm module raises alerts via SNMP or email as soon as they happen, providing quick visibility of any issues, contributing to minimising the impact of any network element downtime or service unavailability.

These can be issues from large scale failures which are severely degrading or preventing service delivery for all subscribers down to small scale geographical based issues which intermittently affect subscribers.

Transparent Brand Performance

Signify the quality of both experience (QoE) and service (QoS) by taking advantage of our risk based key performance statistics. Over 100 KPIs are available across the technologies. Autonomously monitor the SLA performance of VIP hotspots, corporate events and special events changes. Have Merlin™ alert you about an outage before social media does!
