A technology leader in Self-Organizing Networks (SON), CellMining, Friday announced the addition of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) support to its Behavior-Based SON Solution, a technology that helps wireless network operators to capitalize on improved network performance KPIs, save on operational and engineering costs, and reduce subscriber churn.
The solution is designed to extend its existing capability to detect Low Quality Calls made on 2G, 3G and LTE networks, to voice calls running over LTE networks. CellMining's Behavior-Based SON™ solution analyzes and identifies subscriber usage patterns and detects Low Quality VoLTE Calls in which subscribers experience poor audio, digitation, waterfall noise etc.
According to CellMining, these issues often go unnoticed by other network monitoring and optimization systems, but CellMining's enhanced solution detects the calls and maps the problems as they relate to subscriber profile, cell or handset model. It also addresses LTE network mobility, accessibility and throughput issues with both open- and closed-loop SON functionality. CellMining added that the new VoLTE Low Quality Call detection solution is currently being field-evaluated by a leading wireless operator.
