Problems in the RAN contribute to churn

As mobile technologies progress, more and more intelligence is moving out of the core. With smarter devices and more complex signaling, the radio access network (RAN) now plays a major part in supporting and adequately serving your subscribers.

Industry reports show the RAN is responsible for more than 70% of an operator’s poor service quality. There is a growing need to understand this domain, resolve problems and reduce the risk of widespread, debilitating churn. No matter how well the core network is performing, the RAN can cause significant problems for your subscribers, erode profits, and chip away at your brand. The introduction of VoLTE services only magnifies the problems, due to inherently higher voice quality expectations by subscribers, lower latency tolerance, and additional signaling overhead.

Accurate, cost-effective trace port collection extends visibility
RAN visibility

Many carriers rely on equipment vendor counters and core network monitoring systems to gauge and maintain performance of the RAN. Unfortunately, counters and disjointed KPIs can misrepresent the subscriber experience, and without visibility to the actual signaling associated with handovers, resolving issues often results in a costly backlog of trouble tickets. You need accurate, cost-effective troubleshooting tools with vendor-independent trace port collection to extend your visibility.
