Globally, mobile data traffic grew around 60% last year and is expected to grow by a factor of four between 2018 and 2022. So how can operators leverage these massive amounts of data to their benefit?
With analytics, operators can leverage all that data to develop new business models that go beyond traditional connectivity. When harnessed effectively, analytics delivers new customer insights that help operators make smarter business decisions, reduce costs and improve operational efficiencies. Operators have only just begun to scratch the surface in terms of the lucrative business opportunities that data analytics presents.
In this webinar we will explore how big data analytics enables operators to proactively respond to changing network and market dynamics, such as:
Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) and IMS network and subscriber performance metrics to discover end-to-end interoperability problems
Improving/Enabling self-care and reducing call-center contact
Identifying subscribers who have the potential to churn or move to a competitor
Distinguishing network, application and device issues associated with poor subscriber experience
Helping to optimize investment decisions for broadband, voice and IoT
