Epitiro Launches Breakthrough Wi-Fi Service Assurance Platform "Streetwise" saves truck rolls, gives remote view of Wi-Fi quality
CARDIFF, Wales, February 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Epitiro, the leader in wireless quality measurement solutions, today launches the Streetwise™ Wi-Fi Service Assurance Solution to drive quality of experience (QoE) and provide remote monitoring of Wi-Fi network performance without the truck roll.
Using discreet, on-site test probes that measure service beyond the access point, Epitiro Streetwise bridges the gap between centralized network management information and actual subscriber experience by delivering cloud-hosted, real-time analytics to quality stakeholders. Issues that affect subscriber quality, like service accessibility, local interference and app performance can now be monitored and managed centrally.
"The challenge for Wi-Fi service providers is to meet quality expectations without wasting resources," said Jon Curley, CEO, Epitiro. "The ROI for Streetwise is very clear - it saves time and money by automatically reporting issues that erode subscriber confidence and, more significantly, reduces truck roll by confirming when systems are in fact working to specification."
Streetwise 4150 probes behave just like consumers, logging on via WPA/WAP2 and/or captive portal splash screen and testing apps such as YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, Twitter and others. Network metrics includes throughput, latency, local RF quality and channel interference to provide comprehensive QoS and QoE insight.
An app version of the core software is also available for field testing from smartphones on trains and airplanes, and wherever crowds gather - airports, concerts and sporting events.
"Whether it's Wi-Fi offload or hotspots, by going beyond the AP we're helping Wi-Fi operators instantly discover coverage, registration, configuration and channel conflict and other subscriber-affecting issues," continued Curley. "Now service providers can park the trucks and drive quality."
The Streetwise Wi-Fi Service Assurance solution scales commercially to thousands of probes for regional or national deployments. Probes are easily installed by non-technical personnel and auto-configure to be up & running in minutes. Solution features include;
- Remote, on-line views of real-time Wi-Fi analytics
- QoE metrics: App, Access, Network Performance
- Low cost, easy-to-install data probes
- Cloud-hosted model for fast trials and deployment
