Oberthur Technologies (OT) a world leader in digital security solutions for the mobility space and V3D, the independent QoS and QoE software editor for mobile networks, announced today their strategic partnership to provide mobile operators with an embedded solution for analyzing and improving the Quality of Experience (QoE) directly perceptible and felt by the mobile user.
With the extensive use of new connected devices and the arrival of new technologies such as LTE, mobile operators are facing higher expectation of end-users in terms of network quality and quality of experience.
In this context, V3D and OT partnership was initiated to combine both companies’ best of breed Customer Experience monitoring technologies. OT’s Smart Monitoring associated to the V3D’s EQual One solution provides mobile operators with an accurate picture of the coverage, call data status, data, browsing, applications and streaming experience of consumers in real time. This joint solution is not restricted only to consumers’ devices but also covers the Machine-to-Machine experience capabilities.
“Along with the quality and continuity of service monitoring capabilities already provided by our Smart Monitoring solution, this partnership with V3D allows us to supply our customers with exclusive and meaningful source of QoE data directly from any customers’ devices and SIM Cards on the market. Thanks to this solution mobile operators can easily gain a better understanding of their customers’ problems and expectations in order to improve the quality of end-user experience” said Marek Juda, Managing Director of the Solutions Business Unit at OT.
“We are very enthusiastic about this partnership with OT, using our solution to strengthen their existing embedded solutions to better serve and satisfy customers. Indeed, it is why V3D chose to place EQual One in the heart of the CEM and Customer Care solutions of the Telecom industry leaders, enriching these solutions – introducing an outside-in approach - with customer experience data gathered directly from end-users devices” comments Philippe VIAL-GRELIER, Chief Executive Officer of V3D.
