Mobile Network Integration and Support Services

ATIO offers a range of services to mobile network operators and vendors throughout the network build, maintenance and upgrade lifecycle.


Single Site Verification Testing 

A necessary activity when performing a network rollout or upgrade/vendor swap is immediate Site Verification tests on the sites in question. ATIO has conducted Site Verification testing for tens of thousands of 2G, 3G, and 4G sites in countries across Africa. Our specific SSV methodology is tailored to the vendor/operator needs that are relevant to the network. Health and safety and other compliance requirements are fully incorporated into the service, giving our customers peace of mind that they will receive a professional, accurate and low-risk service.

Cluster Acceptance Testing

A mobile network upgrade, rollout or frequency plan implementation always requires cluster and network acceptance testing. ATIO offers this service to assist operators to complete their integration and acceptance testing quickly and effectively. Using the appropriate drive testing tools, NMS access and partnership with specialist Self-Optimizing Network solution providers, we offer a range of approaches and solutions to deliver the results operators need: an accurate and credible view of the necessary statistical Key Performance Indicators, drive test results and fault/exception event analysis to make a decision. These decisions have a significant financial implication and ATIO will ensure that the results are completely objective and of the highest integrity.

Optimization

RAN optimization is an ongoing operational requirement for any wireless network. ATIO delivers this as a service to mobile network operators and infrastructure vendors. Our commercial models are flexible – delivered on a time and materials basis or outcomes based with milestone payments – allowing us to align ourselves with the preferred engagement model of our customers. Our delivery capability includes the deployment of project management capability, Radio Network Optimization engineers, data analysts, drive test resources, specialist tools and more.

Coverage Testing

Always in the top 3 reasons for churn, poor coverage is a problem that continues to plague mobile network operators. ATIO deploys the Wadaro SIM and device-based measurement solution to crowd-source coverage measurements, along with customer Quality of Experience measurements, from your network. Designed to not only collect coverage information, we also use Wadaro to collect call performance problems not typically seen by the network or conventional drive testing.
