Mobile operators today are in a constant battle to meet subscribers’ quality of service (QoS) expectations, while also keeping network costs as low as possible. This balance has been made even more challenging by subscribers’ increasing mobile data usage (global mobile data traffic grew 69% in 2014) and by mobile operators’ tendency to implement multi-vendor […]
Over the last few years, significant advancements have been made to the U.S.’s public safety networks, and for good reason. FirstNet, a U.S. government agency designed to support first responder communications, was tasked with standardizing the design process for its new, LTE-based public safety network. With the help of InfoVista’s network planning technology, FirstNet is […]
A mobile operator’s work is never done. The telco industry is evolving rapidly, requiring mobile operators to juggle activities like ensuring a high quality of experience (QoE) for end users and troubleshooting ongoing mobile network performance, all while managing new technology roll-outs (e.g. LTE, C-RAN and even 5G), keeping up with the latest network standards […]
As wireless technology evolves to 4G, LTE and beyond, we are seeing the demand for mobile data follow suit. With the exponential rise in traffic, it is essential that mobile operators continuously optimize their legacy and next-generation networks in order to ensure the consistent delivery of a high end-user quality of experience (QoE). At the […]
The Carrier Ethernet market is a proven revenue-driver for communications service providers (CSPs), and by all accounts, it will continue to be so in the coming years. By 2017, the Carrier Ethernet market is expected to be worth $100 billion, and by one year later, revenue from these services is predicted to be 300 percent […]
Increasing the speed of service activation, alongside optimizing network services pricing is still causing headaches for communications service providers (CSPs). Incremental network technology improvements and other tactics haven’t quite been able to cut it, and CSPs are looking toward new technologies such as network functions virtualization (NFV) and software defined networking (SDN) to bridge the […]
In the last four years alone, more than 1 billion people have gained mobile network access, bringing the global total to 3.2 billion mobile subscribers – nearly half the world’s population. And we’re only about another four years away from crossing the next significant milestone – 4 billion global subscribers. Historically, this rapidly growing landscape […]
Today’s mobile networks are increasingly dense, complex and heterogeneous, thanks in large part to the trend toward virtualization. In addition, operators must consider the burden of ongoing, exponential mobile data traffic growth on their networks.
