How Reliable Are Your LTE and Wi-Fi Networks?
Your LTE and Wi-Fi networks are the foundation for your next-generation, digital voice, and data services by providing scalability, increased capacity, and speed. Each can prove to be a massive technology turn filled with challenges. LTE and Wi-Fi deployments require huge commitments, accompanied by aggressive schedules and fierce competition. Ultimately, performance will define success, profitability, and customer satisfaction.
Subscribers are eager for service, but they have high expectations. Ensuring quality LTE and Wi-Fi service requires expert analysis of network performance, service delivery, and subscriber behavior. How do your LTE and Wi-Fi networks measure up?
Proactive Monitoring is Key to Voice Service Delivery
Troubleshooting tools must provide end-to-end correlation of control and user plane with visibility from device-to-content. The right performance tools should offer measures of service assurance and media QoE, while customer experience tools should be able to evaluate behaviors to drive service offerings. Having real-time visibility to both the signaling and media quality at each network hop allows service providers to take early action on any degradation.
VoWi-Fi enables service providers to expand their footprint without adding towers, and allows more efficient management of radio and network resources. Successful service delivery demands complete understanding of Wi-Fi access point health, performance, and user experience metrics, such as authentication, connection time, throughput, and latency. Maintaining service continuity requires early warning signals to help avoid outages and over saturation of Wi-Fi access points.
Voice is Still a Killer App
No matter what device, applications or services are used, first and foremost, subscribers still expect to be able to make phone calls. Whether calls are made via VoLTE or VoWi-Fi networks, subscribers anticipate a voice experience with high-definition voice quality, improved coverage, and continuous service. Ensuring crystal clear voice connections requires real-time visibility of the traffic flowing over your LTE network and Wi-Fi access points.
Accelerate and Assure Success of VoLTE and VoWi-Fi Rollouts
Spanning multiple network technologies and domains, VoLTE, and VoWi-Fi enable many different types of services and the creation of new revenue opportunities. While the benefits of both may be clear, successful delivery comes with significant challenges. The good news is you don’t have to go it alone.
