Astellia, leading provider of network and subscriber intelligence for mobile operators, announced that it has signed a major 3-year contract with Telefonica Spain for the implementation of its Nova RAN 3G and 4G optimization solution.
According to Astellia, Telefonica Spain’s central and regional RAN optimization teams will use Astellia’s customer-centric geo-located Nova RAN analytics and optimization solution to prioritize network investments and improve network coverage, capacity and performance.
By geolocating high-ARPU customers every second and pinpointing their frequent access points, optimization teams will make strategic decisions on which parts of the RAN should be upgraded to improve accessibility and avoid congestion.
Astellia said that Nova RAN’s advanced predictive algorithms distinguish indoor/outdoor, static/mobility calls (high speed train, motorways) and coverage & traffic hotspots. This information can also be used to improve network planning by recommending additional small cells for instance.
