RESTON, VA, 11 February 2016 — Ascom Network Testing, the leading independent network and service assurance provider, announced today that it has been awarded the prestigious “Global Radio Access Network Capacity Management Test Equipment” Product Leadership Award by Frost & Sullivan.

Network operators are constantly challenged to avoid the pitfalls and costs associated with over- and under-dimensioning network capacity design, planning, and management. They require solutions and services that can provide visibility into every element of the infrastructure so that they can efficiently build out networks while conserving costs.

With TEMS™ Capacity Manager (introduced in September 2014), Ascom demonstrated its ability to offer solutions that help its customers plan capital investments in radio access networks (RAN) efficiently and effectively, avoiding the problems of over- and under-dimensioning while delivering the enhanced mobile network capacity and coverage demanded by users.

“By collating digital information from the network taps and switches in real time, TEMS™ Capacity Manager empowers its end user to synthesize complex traffic scenarios based upon current radio access network (RAN) environment. In the long run, the methodology would increase the end users’ ability to cut operating and investment expenditure substantially by shifting from a network expansion approach, which was purely ‘just in case,’ to one that is more ‘just in time,’” commented Rohan Joy Thomas, Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan.

TEMS™ Capacity Manager offers a unique approach that gives network operators the ability to simulate advanced traffic scenarios. The insights delivered provide a new plane of visibility in identifying network constraints. In evaluating the performance of eligible solutions, Frost & Sullivan found that Ascom scored significantly higher than competitive offers across all dimensions evaluated.

Ascom’s TEMS™ Capacity Manager provides network operators with the ability to accurately forecast when RAN capacity will reach its limits. These limits are based on each individual mobile operator’s targets for customer experience. TEMS™ Capacity Manager is a unique solution with leading-edge capabilities that allow mobile network operators to identify and gain an up-close understanding of the elements preventing the network from delivering superior end-user service. It enables customers to make the right decisions regarding investments in network performance improvement at the right time.

With its strong overall performance, Ascom has earned Frost & Sullivan’s 2015 Product Leadership Award. Come see TEMS™ Capacity Manager live at MWC 2016, in Hall 6, stand L26.
