What We Did
BEACON Set-Up, Alarms Management
Dedicated Dashboard, Post Analysis
laroccasolutions performed 24/7 measurements on Customer Network
using dedicated BEACONs able to reach
downlink peak rate at 500Mb/s
Primary objective of the activity was:
- Measure Network Performance during Sanremo2017 event
- Acquire the downlink performances of 4G services in all the points of interest
- Show in “REAL-TIME” the average os collected sample by a dedicated and custom algorithm
BEACON is designed to continuously monitor network performance.
It mimics the behavior of real subscribers by using smartphones to perform a series of voice call, web browsing and video streaming tests. In this use case it has been used only to monitor the REAL Downlink Performances 24/24 durin overall the event.
Beacon is remotely controlled and it measures SIGNAL STRENGTH, SIGNAL QUALITY, THROUGHPUT, BROWSING and more…
A simple Beacon download speed dashboard showing the latest speeds in real-time.
This has been developed between laroccasolutions and Metricell and it has been inspired by the Sanremo 2017 Project.
Any MNO could integrate it into their official Website to show to customers their performances in Near Real-Time.
Target audience is likely to be Marketing for this type of initiative, but its also a useful value-add tool for operators with large scale Beacon deployments.
