Simtel boasts trial results for its Netledge QOS network monitoring tools

DUBLIN -- GSM operators have the ability to generate an average of 22 per cent additional revenues on their existing GSM networks, says Simtel.

Based on statistics generated by its real-time Quality of Service (QoS) network monitoring tools, Simtel enables increased traffic and improved call handover, while reducing the number of dropped calls and sustaining longer call times, all achieved with no additional investment in network infrastructure.

Operators enjoy additional savings as their existing networks work harder. Less investment in additional sites, and therefore less maintenance, means reduced capital and operational expenditure.

In trials* Simtel delivered the following results:

  • The network was able to handle a 15 per increase in traffic - increasing operator revenue

  • The network was able to slash dropped call rates by 25 per cent - increasing operator revenue

  • The network delivered a 35 per cent improvement on the mean time between dropped calls, thereby ensuring longer calls – increasing operator revenue

  • The network reduced the failure rate of handovers by a staggering 15 per cent, thereby resulting in more sustained calls – increasing operator revenue

“Because the benefits to an operator can be implemented immediately, significant QoS performance improvements will be noticeable within 48 hours,” said Ali Pourtaheri, CEO of Simtel. “With massive untapped potential, GSM networks can still be the solid foundation in terms of revenue generation while data networks build up their revenue streams.”

Simtel believes that GSM networks are far from being fully optimised, with unnecessary revenue leakage largely accepted by operators. However, tools are now available that can match the intelligence of the network and fully exploit its potential. Simtel’s Netledge™ puts the control of the network back into the hands of the operator.

“Every operator I talk to is painfully aware that his network has been nowhere nearly fully optimised, and until now he has been resigned to that fact,” said Pourtaheri. “Now the tools exist to help operators deliver immediate network performance improvements, and that has major positive revenue implications across all GSM networks.”
