Smarter Wireless - Network Analytics
Mobile data networks are now emerging to be the de facto networks carrying a significant portion of customer data traffic both in developed and growth markets. At the same time, the high rate of penetration of smart phones, tablets, smart sensor systems and other mobile devices have imposed new challenges for mobile network operators due to the wide variety of applications from these devices that interact with the mobile network in a complex way, causing network inefficiencies, outages, high operational expense and poor customer experience.
The Advanced Network Analytics (ANA) solutions being developed in research open up the complex system of interaction between customer data traffic and mobile networks through spatio-temporal analytics, root-cause analysis, deviant behavior detection, multi-source data correlation and analysis, etc. It provides fast actionable analytics both through real-time processing and offline processing, by analyzing high volume of diverse set of mobile data, control and monitoring traffic in a carrier network, thereby giving insightful recommendations for network optimization and customer data monetization.
