It’s no secret that the thirst for fast mobile broadband services has completely transformed the technical and business strategies for mobile operators. With the cost of expanding infrastructure to meet demand and the resulting rise in OPEX, mobile operators are now looking to implement more cost-efficient methods to plan and manage additional capacity while simultaneously improving IP backhaul network performance.
There are many considerations that mobile operators must take into account in order to effectively achieve the reliability and responsiveness they require for their IP and Ethernet transport infrastructures. The ultimate goal is to ensure a high quality of service and experience for 3G and 4G networks.
Managing a multitude of disconnected operational and engineering backhaul toolsets for planning and assurance is neither an accurate nor efficient practice for today’s dynamic networks. With countless OSS tools, how can mobile operators be sure they are making the right decisions? What happens when something goes wrong, and how can they find the root cause of any network performance problems? You’ll find the answers in the video below.
