Monday 11 December 2017 | 11:04 CET | News

On 07 December, the First Stakeholders Conference of the project MoQoS (Measurement of Quality of Service) took place in Vienna. The project scheduled for 2017-2018 is co-financed by the European Union from the Connecting Europe Facility with a budget of EUR 997,808. The MoQoS project members comprise the regulators of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia, CZ.NIC and Specure.

The Czech domain registry CZ.NIC is the project's coordinator and the Austrian company Specure is the project's technology partner, developing the tool Nettest further. The open platform Nettest is already being used by several national regulatory authorities: RTR Austria, AKOS Slovenia, RATEL Serbia, Czech regulator CTU, Slovak regulator RU, NKOM Norway and HAKOM Croatia.

Open Nettest is a platform for collecting, processing and visualisation of data related to the quality of service and quality of experience. It consists of a web-based client, mobile clients, hardware probes, data portal and back-end infrastructure. Unlike commercial alternatives, Nettest has test servers hosted at major national and international internet exchange points, outside the ISPs' networks.

The data collected by Open Nettest can also be used for further analyses, such as adherence to net neutrality, meeting broadband coverage obligations and discovering the overall speed and quality trends of broadband services. Open Nettest also provides visualisation of aggregated data on a heat map, allowing both the regulator and end-users to check the network performance and quality at any given location.

There are currently eight participating NRAs in the MoQoS project. Other NRAs can be involved upon request. They can get a free package, including free access to the shared infrastructure, free usage of mobile apps, machine translation and location and sample hardware probes (two pieces for three months). In addition, they can buy national measurement servers and full localisation, as required.
