Arieso extends performance engineering solutions to support multi-technology LTE networks and enhanced network optimisation
LTE World Summit, Barcelona, 23rd May 2012: Arieso, the customer-centric, location-aware mobile network performance company, today launched the latest generation of its ariesoGEO performance engineering solution. ariesoGEO now supports GSM, UMTS and LTE technologies within a single platform and automates optimisation between these layers.
Designed to help mobile network operators solve performance challenges, ariesoGEO provides valuable insights into the network as experienced by customers. These insights allow operators to manage network planning and performance more cost effectively, while delivering previously unobtainable insights into customer experience.
With the roll out of LTE gathering momentum, high value customers with the latest devices are beginning to interact with a complex multi-layer network. How those layers – 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE – work together is becoming critical in defining the customer experience. To meet this challenge, ariesoGEO is the first enterprise geolocation solution that includes the ability to automatically optimise between technology layers based on measured coverage, a capability previously unavailable.
“There really is no such thing as an LTE subscriber. LTE devices will use the UMTS and GSM layers of the network as well, putting operator engineering teams under greater strain. Increasing complexity demands new thinking and new approaches to managing and optimising networks,” said Shirin Dehghan, CEO, Arieso.
“By extending our capability to cover LTE networks, we’re able to provide operators with a comprehensive solution that starts to automate the optimisation of existing and future network evolutions, solving complex integration challenges. It’s a real industry ‘first’.”
The new release of ariesoGEO also includes a package of advanced automated optimisation features that allow operators to achieve significant network performance improvements with minimal manpower. The value of these features is already proven in several live customer deployments, where ariesoGEO:
- Automatically detects configuration clashes
- Recommends appropriate changes
- Delivers improvements in network performance and customer experience
In one example, this new capability resulted in a 15% reduction in drop call rate when applied to a pre-optimised area of a mature network.
These automated features support faster roll out of major network expansions. Many engineering teams struggle to keep up with changes to neighbour lists, antenna plans and other key parameters as large numbers of new sites are added to the network. By automating these critical tasks ariesoGEO ensures the ultimate mobile network performance.
