Astellia’s Nova RAN Optimizer solution wins LTE Award for best test and measurement
Astellia has won the ‘Best Test & Measurement’ Award at the LTE Awards 2015 in Amsterdam with Nova RAN Optimizer, a customer centric and geolocated radio optimization solution used by major operator groups in the world.
Growing customer expectations and challenging network dynamics are putting pressure on the RAN in such a manner that 80% of quality impacting events occur in the RAN. To provide a seamless user experience, it is therefore extremely important for MNOs to focus optimization activities on the radio part and run smart optimization tasks based on subscriber location and value.
Nova RAN Optimizer embeds Astellia’s 15 years of RAN optimization experience. It is a customer-centric multi-technology & vendor independent radio optimization solution which uses network equipment call traces to optimize RF coverage & quality of the network.
Nova RAN Optimizer analyzes radio measurements with geo-located information to identify bad performing areas with a 50m x 50m tile precision. According to our customers, Nova RAN Optimizer improves operational efficiency by 60%, cuts down yearly RAN equipment investments by 5% and reduces drive test campaigns by 90%.
“This year’s LTE Awards have been subject to a record number of entries, many of which illustrated a very high level of innovation” said Dimitris Mavrakis, Principal Analyst at Ovum. “One of these entries was Astellia’s, where the vendor answered operator needs with an innovative and market-ready optimisation solution. Astellia’s vendor-agnostic and comprehensive Nova RAN solution convinced this year’s judges that it was above the rest of the entries.”
“Astellia’s DNA lies in RAN optimization and we are well recognized as network and subscriber intelligence provider. The independent endorsement of Astellia’s expertise and added-value by an international jury of experts confirms our market leadership and expertise. We are therefore very proud to have won this distinctive award” confirms Vicent Soler, Executive Vice-President and CTO Advanced RAN Studies at Astellia.
