Description

The Portuguese company has a team of experts with over 20 years in the field of telecommunications, software programming and database professional solution implementations. It is currently one of the fastest growing companies in the information and communication technologies area, with products awarded by the Portuguese Government. The company is also involved in international cooperation with partners in 16 countries. International cooperation is being achieved in the scope of commercial agreements and in the scope of international research projects, namely H2020 projects. The company developed a user experience benchmarking solution that can be used by mobile network operators (MNOs), telecom regulators and telecom service providers. The solution is composed by radio probes and an associated analytic tool. The probes, designed and developed by the company, behave like and have the capabilities of a mobile phone. They can be remotely accessed and can operate both in mobile environments (in non-dedicated vehicles, such as taxis/public or private transportation), and static environments (such as shopping malls, stadiums, public or private buildings, or residences), allowing a continuous measurement of key parameters (network and user apps) without need for dedicated field personnel. The analytic tool enables the scheduling of new measurements in the probes, collects and stores the data reported by the probes, uses Mean Opinion Scores (MOS) to estimate user experience (UX) for voice and video, and big data analytics and deep machine learning to foresee/predict mobile network behaviours. Overall, the solution provides valuable insights for a mobile network operator, as it will help them gain operational efficiency, generate revenue, support strategic business decisions and provide meaningful experience for subscribers. Regulatory authorities and telecom service providers will obtain, through it, reliable information on existing commercial mobile networks and associated subscriber’s experience. The company seeks business partners interested in one or more of the 3 types of possible partnership types: (i) Partners interested in supporting further improvements of product development; (ii) Partners able to help, through procurement, in the establishment of contacts with abroad mobile network operators, telecom service providers or regulators; (iii) Partners willing to assist the deployment in Asian markets (especially in Japan) of the solution. These partnerships can be establish through an outsourcing agreement or a subcontracting agreement.
