Azimuth Releases US Operator Performance Benchmarking Case Study

Azimuth Systems, Inc. today announced the availability of its US Operator Performance Benchmarking Case Study. This case study leverages Azimuth’s Analytics Solution to compare performance across four major US networks and highlights the impact of device-network interactions on key device and network KPIs. The case study also introduces “System Interaction KPIs” which are specifically designed to identify how devices impact the network.

Clear performance differences were observed, which led to insightful and in some cases counter-intuitive results:

  • The fastest network is 20-50% faster than the other networks despite having more device-network interactions. This network is also the one most likely to offer the best battery life for the device.
  • One network offered very good over-the-air data rate, but couldn’t extend these gains to the subscriber resulting in low user perceived data rates.
  • The device spent significantly longer (40-60%) time on 3G than on LTE for one operator, potentially due to the network settings among other factors. The relatively high time spent on 3G had a direct impact on user experience.
  • The operator with the best application throughput also had the highest number of device-network interactions.

According to Vivek Vadakkuppattu, Director & Head of the Analytics Business unit at Azimuth, “Ever increasing network and device complexity has increased the impact of device-network interactions on the subscriber experience. Traditional testing has not yet caught up to this new reality and instead remains focused on device-specific or network-specific KPIs. The results from this case study highlight that an understanding of device-network interactions can provide new insights into device and network performance, ultimately impacting end user experience.”

Conducting simple comparisons of throughput are no longer sufficient. Devices impact each network differently and a view into device-network interactions using metrics such as “System Interaction KPIs” can offer new insights into performance differences. Azimuth Analytics is a leading platform for automating benchmarking and regression testing of devices and network elements and is designed to provide operators, network equipment manufacturers and device OEMs the data they need to continually improve device and network performance.

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
