QUANTITATIVE AND STRATEGIC NETWORK ANALYSIS.
Everyone knows that 5G will be a lot more than a new mobile generation. With 5G, we will interact with more devices, faster, more often and in a lot more locations. And that will undoubtedly have an impact on voice and data traffic. Simultaneously, Smart Cities require millions of transmitting sensors and M2M connections, coexisting with millions of smart devices. Traffic demand will grow exponentially.
Mobile operators are already under huge pressure to increase their capacity, while maintaining QoS/GoS/QoE and, of course, keeping capex and opex under control. Operators, regulators, and vendors are already anticipating the congestion.
WHAT IS UNIVO DOING ABOUT IT?.
At Univo, we design, develop and market a network capacity dimensioning and forecasting SaaS to support mobile operators in their planning and budgeting activities. With Univo, you can face the digital revolution confidently.
NUMBER OF SELLABLE LINES.
Operators are using LTE networks to provide mobile broadband internet services to their customers in locations where fiber and ADSL are not available.
The main drawback operators are currently facing is that LTE capacity and users’ Quality of Experience (QoE) are dynamic variables based on interference, users’ location, RAN/TN/CN configuration, and CPE capabilities; all of which evolve in time.
Operators can face situations where in certain users get great QoE while in other areas, QoE is severely degraded (as shown in illustration below).
LTE capacity and QoE are complex information to compute. Using our innovative Univo 4G capacity model, we provide you with unique information: how many lines you can sell to your end users, per month and per area, and per package type (5 Mbps, 20 Mbps, etc.), based on CPE location.
VOICE & DATA TRAFFIC FORECASTING.
Univo aggregates traffic data of access, transport and core networks; ADSL and WiFi traffic may also be aggregated for a complete end-to-end network dimensioning.
Univo is the first SaaS to calculate the most probable traffic evolution at the cell level. Its unique accuracy is achieved by probabilistic algorithms, proven in the nuclear industry, which are agnostic to traffic deeps and highs. Univo provides critical information about capacity in a simple manner. We carried out multiple tests to validate Univo’s accuracy.
- City – 1M population
- Duration of observation – 12 months
- Prediction – 6 months
- Results – 98% of real traffic was absorbed
Furthermore, based on your desired QoS/GoS/QoE targets, Univo provides the exact equipment required for the upgrades.
CAPACITY PLANNING & MANAGEMENT.
Univo’s machine learning engine enables you to simulate multiple scenarios and visualize their impact, again providing accurate insight about your network.
- New site addition – visualize the impact of adding a new site on your network traffic
- Marketing promotions
- Target QoS – determine which upgrades are required to reach target QoS
INVESTMENT BUDGET AUTOMATION.
One of Univo’s most valuable features relies in its capacity to automate all your investment budgeting. Univo’s algorithms and machine learning engine indicate whether it is worth investing in resolving congestion.
You will be able to appreciate the revenues that will be generated by resolving congestion before actually deploying any additional equipment. This tool will provide your engineers’ most reliable data, enabling them to make the best decisions, taking into consideration all the key parameters:
- How much to increase user experience?
- How much to suppress congestion?
- Revenues generated once congestion is suppressed
- How much do we need to spend per technology to reach specific QoS/GoS/QoE targets?
