Drive tests and mobile network optimisation services provide a clear insight into the quality of mobile-phone coverage and other wireless technologies, including identification of black spots (areas without reception) and areas of poor signal quality (dropped calls, slow data speed, etc.). Drive test and mobile optimisation services also provide users with information about a mobile networks’ compliance with relevant regulations and technical requirements.
Mobile network drive test and optimisation services are aimed at telecommunications companies wishing to improve their service to their customers and/or their regulatory compliance.
These services are critical for implementing, operating and maintaining of any wireless network because the coverage data provided directly informs the investment and policy decisions of the operator, or provider, responsible for installing, managing or maintaining the network.
Drive tests and mobile optimisation services provide data to indicate when to enhance or widen a network; how the network compares with its competitors (benchmarking); or if mobile network performance is optimal following an intervention or an event involving a large influx of users.
The resulting data can also be used to reassure government bodies that all users have access to the emergency services at all times.
