You could be forgiven for thinking that mobile operators must be rubbing their hands in joy with the news that Apple sold nine million new iPhones in the first weekend of availability. But it is also worth considering the impact on the mobile networks of huge numbers of new devices being connected in a short period of time. Of course, the networks will have thoroughly tested the new devices in advance of launch. But how can any organization effectively replicate and realistically test the impact of hundreds of thousands of new devices connecting over a short period? Continue reading

Rating: Helps reduce churn; build brand advocates & VIPs apparently
Here’s an interesting variant on data mining for mobile network operators. Instead of mining obvious databases such as CRM systems, operators should be tapping into information which until now has typically stayed in the realm of engineering teams.

To emphasise its point, Actix has produced a free guide to the ‘ six steps to using intelligent geo-marketing to drive mobile subscriber acquisition and retention.’ Continue reading
Rating: It’s about the right performance in the right place, says Actix
This is, of course, the official London Olympics 2012 bandwagon week and the latest to join in is network measurement specialist, Actix. The company points out quite sensibly that with close to a million visitors expected in London for the Games, mobile networks will be under extreme pressure and the quality of data services will inevitably slump. However, Actix argues that within a year this level of pressure on the networks will be an everyday occurrence as mobile data traffic is expected to grow by 78 per cent year on year according to Cisco’s visual networking index. Under normal circumstances current networks are already close to capacity in Central London and the Games will only worsen the situation. Consequently, Actix predicts that poor network performance could scupper operators’ chances of bagging the lucrative extra revenues from international roamers. Continue reading
