NextGen Innovation Labs, a spinoff of United Commtel, has announced Mobi-Xperience QoS, described by company officials as a suite to “give mobile operators as well as handset and network equipment OEMs insights into the customer experience.”
The product, company officials say, “addresses one of mobile operators’ top priorities: ensuring the user experience across voice, data and media-rich services to attract and retain consumer and enterprise customers.”
The suite focuses on four primary areas of customer experience information: consumer-centric network optimization to address network capacity, reliability and coverage; radio network benchmarking for service quality assurance; consumer surveying and analytics for real-time quality of service data and customer care to offer problem resolution for premium-billing customers.

Generally available now, the Mobi-Xperience? QoS suite is currently in trial with various customers globally, including a Tier-1 U.S. operator.
In February TMCnet reported that Bridgewater Systems announced a Radio Access Network congestion product that extends the Bridgewater Policy Controller with a new RAN Congestion module.
The end result is a combination that addresses real-time cell site congestion information with subscriber entitlements to deliver enhanced services, said the mobile personalization services provider.
