Ascom Network Testing has secured a CHF 1.2 million contract from the Swiss operator to validate Swisscom 4G/LTE network service quality.
As part of its nation-wide 4G/LTE rollout program, Swisscom has selected Ascom to provide an upgrade of its existing benchmarking and network quality of service monitoring with a total value of more than CHF 1.2 million. The contract is part of a network overhaul initiated by Swisscom to handle future growth in mobile data transmission.
Ascom's solution will upgrade Swisscom's existing installation of TEMS products in order to support the 4G/LTE rollout. The contract includes TEMS Automatic - which collects multichannel network data autonomously during test drives - and TEMS Discovery, which post-processes the data to provide detailed analytics and reports to enable engineering teams to monitor and troubleshoot the performance of the Swisscom 4G/LTE network.
This important win demonstrates the growing momentum for Ascom as the premier testing partner for 4G/LTE rollouts. Ascom's TEMS Portfolio is used in most of the European countries to do first validation of 4G/LTE network performance and was recently also selected by two leading US operators for 4G/LTE benchmarking and service performance monitoring projects worth more than USD 10 million.
"This 4G/LTE upgrade from Swisscom is further affirmation that leading operators continue to trust Ascom as an independent authority for validating network quality of service," said Fritz Mumenthaler, CEO of Ascom. "Our long-term commitment to our customer's success drives everything we do, from partnering with them to ensuring we develop the technologies they need as their networks evolve," he said.
