In addition, T-Mobile is leveraging the extensive range of service, user and device usage metrics from the nGenius solution to support customer experience management reporting.

“In Austria network quality is very important, and without the appropriate service quality you cannot survive. Our customers have very high performance expectations, so our highest priority is to continuously improve our customers’ experience to deliver more incremental value,” said Athanasios Avgeridis, senior vice president operations for technology at T-Mobile Austria. “Our monitoring capabilities are strategically important to us, and every Euro we have invested in NetScout has brought us substantial value with a very strong return on investment. We selected NetScout to assure our LTE network based upon our experience with their proven scalability, reliability and high quality data, as well as their leading ability to support our future service plans.”

The nGenius solution provides a real-time, end-to-end service-centric perspective of networks, services and subscribers, enabling mobile operators to proactively manage service performance, availability and quality. Analyzing both data and control plane traffic, the nGenius Solution reveals how network, application and service enabler interdependencies impact service performance and the subscriber experience. The nGenius solution’s predictive early warning capabilities helps prevent outages by identifying emerging performance degradations, allowing proactive recognition, triage and resolution before performance problems can impact large numbers of subscribers. The extensive network intelligence provided by the nGenius solution enables operators to leverage their service assurance investments for operational intelligence to understand usage trends, identify new service opportunities, improve organizational efficiency and make better business decisions.
