Arieso Touts New Network KPIs

NEWBURY, U.K. -- Arieso has today revealed that mobile network operators are using out of date “Key Performance Indicators” (KPIs) to monitor network performance. Outdated KPIs leave operators unable to meet ever-evolving subscriber demands and effectively manage network outsourcing agreements. Current indicators such as cell level accessibility and retainability support network performance but offer little to enhance the customer experience.

According to Arieso, current KPIs are ‘diluted’, as measurements are averaged over geographic areas and across an entire set of subscribers. Consequently, it is not clear where the root causes of problems are located and highly localised points of poor customer experience remain invisible.

“Many operators are outsourcing networks to Managed Service Providers and they risk losing control of the customer experience with outdated KPIs,” said Dr. Michael Flanagan, Chief Technology Officer at Arieso. “Both outsourced and ‘owned’ networks typically base indicators on network-centric KPIs. These often only address certain measures such as classic accessibility, retainability and availability metrics.”

Arieso’s extensive discussions with operators globally have enabled it to identify three new and innovative location-aware KPIs, which bring a customer-centric focus to traditional indicators. These can also be employed in outsourced network agreements directly supporting efforts to manage and improve customer experience:

  • KPI 1: Threshold numbers of 4G-capable customers served by 3G, and 3G customers served by 2G
  • KPI 2: High Value customers whose “personal retainability” or “corporate retainability” is below a certain threshold
  • KPI 3: High Value customers whose “personal data experience” or “corporate data experience” is below a certain threshold
