Measuring and improving network performance - an analysis of network and application research, testing and optimization
In today’s data-driven networks, good app coverage is central to the user experience, especially in emerging markets. Yet it remains hard to measure properly.
In its National Telecom Policy 2012 (NTP-2012), the Government of India set out its vision, objectives and targets to extend the reach of broadband in the country over the coming years. Delivering this vision, and meeting the ambitious targets for coverage and data speeds, will require significant attention to factors on both the supply side and the demand side.
Spectrum is fundamental to the success of mobile wireless communications. In recent years, it has been difficult to add new spectrum due to incumbent or legacy use. Shared spectrum opens opportunities to unlock additional, currently underutilized, spectrum for mobile broadband, in situations when incumbent or co-primary use does not diminish the value of that spectrum to the mobile operator. This is important because clearing this underused spectrum for exclusive use by the mobile industry would not be possible within reasonable time frames.
As smartphones and tablets became the access devices of choice, mobile user behavior has undergone a fundamental shift from being predominantly voice-centric to data-centric – or, more accurately, app-centric. To provide for this, operators need new ways to assess performance and the quality of the user experience that enables operators to build and manage their networks in the most efficient, targeted and profitable way.
