Celcite  has announced that its geo-location based planning and optimisation solution COPS-Geo has now also added support for LTE technology. The solution uses mobile measurements such as User Equipment Traffic Recording (UETR) and Cell Traffic Recording (CTR) to geo-locate subscribers and traffic, thereby providing a location-aware visualisation and optimisation platform both on UMTS and LTE. This important enhancement to COPS-Geo is designed to help mobile network operators to improve subscriber experience by efficiently planning and optimising LTE network expansions and benchmarking mobile device performance.

“Over the last few years, Celcite has led the market with its enterprise COPS platform for managing multi-technology, multi-vendor wireless networks”

The introduction of complex heterogeneous networks (HetNets), involving the integration of small cells alongside the UMTS and LTE macrocell ecosystem, has created a need for even more rigorous subscriber location-based planning and optimisation of networks. Mobile network operators’ planning and optimisation teams are placing a growing emphasis on pre-launch and post-launch optimisation based on location-specific information using subscriber measurements and benchmarking of mobile devices, and are now moving further away from drive test based optimisation.

COPS-Geo’s UETR Call Browser enables the operator to track, drill down and troubleshoot subscriber call flows, including drops, blocks, and handover failures. It also provides detailed network optimisation reports and analyses on poorly performing cells, as well as performing statistical analysis on various measurements and KPIs. Further, IMEI/IMSI reports and analyses enable performance drill-down on specific subscribers and specific mobile devices. Along with device analytics, subscriber experience visualisation and network optimisation support, it also provides for effective network coverage and capacity management and thereby a smarter approach to prioritising CAPEX allocation and reducing subscriber churn.

“Over the last few years, Celcite has led the market with its enterprise COPS platform for managing multi-technology, multi-vendor wireless networks,” said Ajay Khanna, CTO at Celcite. “Adding a UETR/CTR based geo-location solution to our portfolio further enhances our already proven and commercially deployed GSM, UMTS and LTE capable COPS platform.”
