Industrial applicationTelecommunications and Marketing
Market segmentThe target market is the B2B telecommunications sector, aimed at traditional and virtual mobile operators, and in general to all Telco operators engaged in the activities of network optimization. The market value is estimated in the order of a few million Euros.
Advantage factorBeMyTester allows to: (i) recover the "user perspective" in the process of network performance analysis (by exploiting the users’ distribution over the territory) and (ii) to implement only targeted traditional optimization activities, otherwise almost impossible to achieve on a large scale.
Commercial challenge(i) Cost reduction in activity of Radio Network Investigation (RNI), Radio Network Optimization (RNO) and Operation & Maintenance (O&M), (ii) improvement of network performance by evaluating just the Quality of Experience, (iii) crowdsourcing scalable solution, (iv) marketing interview, (v) deterministic reports geo-referenced rather than statistical in nature (vi) indicator of business continuity for all Telco companies, including those which do not possess in-house service for RNI and RNO.
