Nova RAN is an integrated suite of applications for planning, troubleshooting and optimizing mobile networks using dynamic, geo-located device and subscriber data.
Nova RAN enables operators to maintain peak performance with fast, precise insight into radio coverage, subscriber and device connectivity, mobility and location with analytics from cell site to nationwide network in seconds.
Nova RAN’s multi-dimensional analytics reveal the origins of complex, interrelated RF, network and device issues, making it the most effective tool for troubleshooting RAN and core, and optimizing VoLTE services. This insight is essential to efficiently scaling out 5G in the context of 3G and 4G services.
Nova RAN enables operators to troubleshoot and optimize the RAN end-to-end with valuable real-time insight, enriched by subscriber location, behavior and network usage.
View key network, cell, device, and application metrics based on rich crowd-sourced, geo-located subscriber data to optimize both RAN and QoE.
Full end-to-end troubleshooting
Best-in-class visibility with detailed inspection of message flows, enabling fast drill down to network problems and root cause identification.
Virtual drive testing
Leverage geo-located subscriber data to reduce drive tests by up to 80%, enhancing 4G and 5G network planning, troubleshooting and optimization.
EXFO has delivered over 5,000 service engagements at leading operators worldwide. Tap into our expertise to optimize your RAN.
Identify areas with a critical mass of 5G handsets and high data usage to prioritize new cell deployment. Troubleshoot call flows. Model 4G power reduction to improve 5G capacity. Optimize 5G neighbours and dual connectivity. Visualize multi-generation RANs on fast, massive maps.
Optimize VoLTE services end-to-end. Monitor VoLTE performance by cells, devices and subscribers. Investigate VoLTE blackspots, accessibility and handoff issues. Assess traffic distribution and call drop hotspots. Improve interoperability in multi-RAT, multi-vendor RANs. Maximize VoLTE service quality ahead of re-farming.
Capture what drive testing can’t: busy hours, device capabilities and subscriber behavior. Precisely model cell site performance and utilization along high traffic corridors and high-density urban areas with rich geo-located subscriber data. Validate network plans before scaling up new sectors and services.
Understand real-world customer behavior. Feed big data systems with rich geo-located subscriber data. Build targeted offers based on the best performing handsets to generate new revenue streams. Monitor VIP QoE proactively. Detect and resolve customer issues before they complain, reducing reasons to churn.
Swisscom, Switzerland’s leading operator, chose EXFO’s VoLTE service assurance solution—Nova Geo for geolocated RF optimization and Nova Explorer for end-to-end troubleshooting—to monitor its network through all phases of deployment. Swisscom continues to count on NOVA to ensure ongoing quality assurance now that its VoLTE service is fully up and running.Read the success story
