Why RAN Insights? The success of a radio access network can be judged by many different metrics. For instance, it is usually the customers experience that determines which network scores the ‘best’ in surveys. Other factors such as Speed, Performance and Bearer availability (e.g. LTE/5G) are very important to the consumer.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could monitor these metrics from the customers perspective across the country, up to thousands of locations? And also benchmark yourself against competitors?
Merlin™ can provide you with these RAN Insights!
Benchmarking Against KPIs

Benchmarking Against Competitors
If you are unsure exactly how well your network stacks up in certain areas, then test for it:
- Network accessibility
- Service availability
- Connection retainability
- Service quality e.g. network response, audio quality, SMS delivery times, data speeds
RAN Insights can show you which locations are struggling, enabling you to act.

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.
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.
Our solution offers ‘just add power’ in-country geographical deployment for the system and is scalable to your footprint; whether it be 10 locations or 1000.
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!
