How can AI be harnessed to optimise mobility experience?
Hear Vodafone and Continual describe their journey
With all the resources that have been invested into mobile networks – providing substantial monitoring budgets, establishing LTE as a nationwide standard and accelerating 5G rollout programmes –why is network experience still painful for subscribers on the move? Why do the words ‘journey’ and ‘route’ seem to be missing from the RAN team’s vocabulary? And what is the technology gap in network monitoring solutions that prevents mobile operators from measuring highway and railway experience effectively?
Understanding the growing importance of optimising highway performance, Vodafone Ireland took up the challenge, and began working with Continual to monitor, analyse and optimise mobility experience.
In this webinar, Vodafone’s Data Analytics and Optimisation Engineer Stephen Dillon and Continual’s CMO Assaf Aloni will describe:
- The technology breakthrough that adds journey-focused metrics to the measurable parameters available to the network monitoring team
- How Vodafone used Mobility Experience Analytics to improve network performance for subscribers in mobility
- The resulting improvements in KPIs
- Further use cases and benefits available from mobility analytics technology
Join Vodafone Ireland and Continual for this informative webinar, hosted by our Editor, Annie Turner, on how to optimise network experience for subscribers on the move.
