Network Service Quality Testing
Proactive service quality testing detects issues before they impact customers
Mobile operator service testing is often neglected, and due to resources, not performed regularly. Manual or outsourced testing of network services gives the possibility of 4-5 hours of undetected critical service issues. Therefore, automated 24×7 regular service testing campaigns assure network services function correctly, prevents churn and protect revenues.
Manual service testing leaves service failures undetected
Mobile operators manually or outsource proactive test campaigns for national access and international roaming partner mobile operators. Outsourced expensive testing leaves open the possibility of a critical roaming service access failure left undetected for several hours, or days. The test campaigns will eventually detect these issue, but how can the impact on revenues be reduced? 3 hours is a long time! And if it happens often, twice a month, then the revenue impact can be quite large.
Continuous automated 24×7 testing campaigns
Mobile operators with 24×7 proactive service quality testing can detect network service issue fast. When service issues develop, the 24×7 automated regular testing will generate a service quality alarm. Once the issue is detected and resolved, revenue losses can be minimized.
In this way, the detection, investigation and repair of network and roaming service issues is achieved in a matter of 30 minutes, not hours or days. The impact on network and roaming service revenues is small, the risk of customer churn is reduced and the SLAs with partner networks are met.
