The key findings from Serbian project at RATEL are provided in a dedicated GUI-friendly portal for end-users.
Warsaw, February 18, 2020 – Systemics-PAB, a leader in independent Quality of Experience benchmarking services and end-to-end network & service quality improvements, has been conducting a number of extensive national benchmark surveys of mobile network operators in responding to the rising demand of regulatory agencies for network audits. For RATEL in Serbia, UKE in Poland, TRC in Jordan, and TRA in UAE the company had examined network coverage and health, identified problem root-causes and recommended solutions to improve performance and service assurance. Moreover, knowledge transfer on measurement processes and specialised testing equipment was delivered to Serbia and Jordan.
The most recent and challenging project was conducted in Serbia – an extensive national benchmark survey of all three mobile networks operators in this country. The project was commissioned annually in 2017, 2018 and 2019 by the Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services RATEL. The measurement results are available in the dedicated interactive portal created especially for the purpose of the project. The portal is a unique initiative and allows intuitive navigation through the results with filtering features and also allows the interpretation of the results. The information on the portal is available in two Serbian language versions (Cyrillic and Latin) and in English.
