Network Audit and Benchmarking

As aforementioned, our accountability is the most important factor and we commit to ourselves to deliver the most independent and the best service in cellular network engineering, and not affected by any secondary motives. It means that in the case for network benchmarking, we will deliver the best independent option for our customer.  Unlike the vendors, for example, who will only use their technical consultant service as a marketing blade.  

The highlighted system benchmarking procedure covered by our services includes:
• Continuous Calls These section activities to be undertaken to know the average signal received at conducted area
• Periodic Calls Call length time: 2 minutes. Time between two calls: 10 s. Number of calls: >= 150 times  
• Test Calls

Originating/Terminating Call Intra network 
Originating/Terminating Call Inter network 
HO test between cell (intra and inter BSC) 
Emergency Call 
Call to voice mail number (Up link quality) 
SMS sends during Originating/Terminating

Our overseas experience with other cellular systems around the world means that we have something to benchmark against our customer system. Therefore, not only we can help our customer to improve their network performance so it can compete against their immediate competitors, but also to help our customer build a network that will proudly stand out amongst other cellular systems around the world. The key factor that should be considered is the traffic that is attributed to mobiles operating in an environment other than on the street. There are two classes of testing commonly used to evaluate cellular system are

• Comparative Competitor Network survey (CCN survey)
• Optimization survey
