MVNO SLA Verification

MVNO SLA Verification

There are many challenges facing the MNO engineers that are responsible for meeting MVNO SLA’s (service level agreements). One of these challenges is being able to monitor what the MVNO customers are experiencing in real time and whether or not the service being delivered is at the required compliance level.

SLA Compliance

When dealing with MVNOs, MVNEs and even large corporates, it’s not uncommon to have SLAs in place to ensure services provided meet a customer’s expectations. In some cases, it may be necessary to provide active confirmation that SLAs are being adhered to. The Merlin™ system can be used to provide the SLA information required.

Implicit MVNO SLA Assurance

While Merlin™ is being used for other purposes such as network monitoring and change management, it is continuously generating test data that can be used to confirm that MVNO SLA KPIs are being met. This data can be correlated and combined with SLA KPIs to create statistics for SLA compliance reporting. Merlin™ also allows easy exporting of data (results), which can then be added to your existing reporting suite. SNMP alerting is also available.

Targeted MVNO SLA Testing

If customer experience issues are reported in certain locations, our test equipment can be quickly deployed on-site and test data collected for analysis. Test event volumes can also be increased to verify specific SLA requirements to satisfy SLA reporting needs.

Flexible Near Real-Time Reporting

This includes SNMP near real time alerting. Map call event failures by voice, SMS, data, location and technology bearer (2G, 3G, 4G, VoLTE, 5G – other technologies available on request).

Results are retrieved within 1 minute and the built-in alarm module raises alerts via SNMP or email as soon as they happen, providing quick visibility of any issues, contributing to minimising the impact of any network element downtime or service unavailability.

These can be issues from large scale failures which are severely degrading or preventing service delivery for all subscribers down to small scale geographical based issues which intermittently affect subscribers.

Transparent Brand Performance

Signify the quality of both experience (QoE) and service (QoS) by taking advantage of our risk based key performance statistics. Over 100 KPIs are available across the technologies. Autonomously monitor the SLA performance of VIP hotspots, corporate events and special events changes. Have Merlin™ alert you about an outage before social media does!
