Actix secures landmark 60th LTE customerMay 16, 2012
Actix mobile network analytics and optimization software deployed on over half of worldwide LTE networks
London, UK. May 16 2012: Actix, the world leader in mobile network analytics and optimization, announced it has secured its 60th customer for its LTE Network Acceptance solution. As the pace of LTE rollouts increases Actix is already supporting most of Europe, Asia and North America’s early deployments.
Actix’s LTE Network Acceptance solution helps mobile operators minimize the substantial risks involved in LTE rollout and ensure day one network quality. The solution enables them to independently verify the performance of their LTE networks prior to launch, by enforcing transparent and unambiguous KPIs; automating the network acceptance process to manage cost and complexity; delivering centralized governance ensuring full control of network equipment providers. Full optimization capabilities also allow any issues identified during the process to be addressed at the same time.
“Actix is delighted that our leadership in mobile analytics and optimization is continuing with LTE” said Bill McHale, Actix CEO. “For such a critical investment, taking the risk out of LTE rollout by ensuring specific contractual KPIs are met by network equipment providers is vital. Actix’s network acceptance solution is handing control of the network back into the hands of the operator, and it’s testament to the capability and performance of the solution that so many worldwide operators and vendors are using it to deploy next generation networks.”
Network Acceptance is a critical process used by mobile network operators to ensure that deployed network equipment meets performance targets prior to launch. With ROI dependent on an on-time, on-quality and on-budget delivery of the network, network rollout can be a high-risk activity for operators. Poor quality network delivery can lead to operators experiencing lower service uptake, higher levels of customer dissatisfaction, increased post launch optimization costs, and a reputation for a poor network quality.
The Actix acceptance solution is available in a single-user desktop version, or as a multi-user hosted cloud, allowing hundreds of stakeholders within both the operator and network equipment provider access to the data.
“Our close working relationship with early stage LTE operators is providing us with valuable insight into the very real challenges involved in rolling out LTE, especially in the modern HetNet environment” said Richard Kateley, Actix CTO. “Actix supports over 200 data interfaces and this multi-vendor and multi-technology approach is helping operators make sense of an environment far more complex than the one they faced during the rollout of UMTS”.
Actix has been nominated for the ‘Best Test/Measurement LTE Product’ at the Telecoms.com LTE Awards 2012. Now in its third year, and taking place at LTE World Summit 2012 on May 23rd in the El Xalet, Montjuic, Barcelona, the awards celebrate and recognize the achievements of leadership, quality and innovation in the LTE industry.
