Kapsch CarrierCom, Viavi Solutions win Telekom Srbija deal

Wednesday 1 March 2017 | 10:16 CET | News

Kapsch CarrierCom and Viavi Solutions are supplying Telekom Srbija with a geolocation optimisation service. Kapsch CarrierCom was entrusted with project management, implementation and support for the ariesoGEO performance application developed by Viavi Solutions. This project was finalised in February.

The project brings unified visibility and customer-centric, geo-location intelligence to the entire radio access network (RAN), in order to optimise RAN planning and performance engineering. The application allows Telekom Srbija to capture, collect and analyse 100 percent of subscriber sessions around the clock almost instantly, to gain deep insights into service quality, technology usage, device distribution and performance on different technologies on the network.

Viavi and Kapsch offer an unfragmented view as grounds for network performance optimisation, with every single subscriber functioning as a drive-tester. This is achieved by enabling detailed call and event analysis on capacity usage and coverage white spots, indoors and outdoors. Viavi’s ariesoGEO application processes data from billions of mobile connection events.

The system offers the potential operational and capital expenditure cuts. One can cut drive testing with the aim of replicating errors that subscribers suffer entirely. In addition, the system secures and increases revenues for communication service providers, by lowering revenue leakage, improving VIP and corporate customer service, the option of monetising the location-intelligence data gathered, better performance from the existing network and a higher traffic offload on small cells.

The tool unlocks measurable business benefits for CSPs by offering deep network visibility and smarter usage of existing resources, explains Thomas Schopf, COO at Kapsch CarrierCom. 

Under the project for Telekom Srbija, Kapsch CarrierCom was responsible for end-to-end project delivery, from project management and implementation, to providing the geo-optimisation services based on the collected data. Kapsch is also providing mentoring and support.

Viavi is a provider of network test, monitoring and assurance services to communications service providers and enterprises through channels including Viavi Velocity Solution Partners. It delivers visibility on physical, virtual and hybrid networks. Viavi is active in thin film optical coatings, providing light management services to anti-counterfeiting, consumer electronics, automotive, defence and instrumentation markets.
