End to End Data Network Optimization
A “Quick-Fix” of the Top 5 network performance issues for a leading CSP
Following the implementation of LTE systems, Communication Systems Providers usually deploy E2E Network Optimization projects. Those projects aim at integrating the 4G network elements to the legacy 3G/2G networks and perform traffic management and QoS tasks between all systems, additionally.
A typical Use Case focuses on the Top 5 QoS performance issues prominent in the network. This service is designed on a “Quick-Fix” approach (usually 3-6 Months) where, following a QoS performance assessment, the Top 5 issues are assessed and the related Key Performance Indicators that must be improved are precisely defined.
Typically, a team of 3 E2E Network Optimization Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and a Project Manager is deployed on-site and on a “Telepresence” basis, supported by an innovative, cloud based, analytics platform with multi-vendor, multi-technology, multi-data source capabilities. The effectiveness of the cloud platform allows the SMEs to post process and analyze vast amounts of performance data and within a very small timeframe support the definition of improvement measures.
A dedicated “Root Cause Analysis” is performed by the SMEs, targeting the identification of the network parameters that must be optimized in order to fix the Top 5 QoS Issues. Utilizing their multi-vendor engineering expertise, the SMEs analyze the potential dependencies of various parameter changes to the network performance dynamics and identify the best values to be implemented.
Finally, following a parameter trial stage in a controlled cluster of sites, the parameters sets are fine-tuned and consequently delivered in a template form per site type.
A follow up QoS performance verification campaign can be optionally performed at the most strategic locations.
