Telco analytics for real time location based services & maintenance

Summary

As cell phone usage skyrockets around the world and Telco network coverage becomes a commoditized feature for most consumers, Telco companies are racing to mine insights from cell phone towers to help improve quality of service, improve customer experience, reduce congestion and use predictive maintenance to avoid dead cell towers. To do this, they have to capture statistics such as dropped calls, detect dead zones in coverage, identify and proactively deal with handset issues from inspecting network data and optimize the network for better delivery of voice and data.

Challenge

  • High data volumes, which makes optimized ingestion important
  • Custom protocols that need to be converted/preprocessed
  • Constant updates and need for high availability
  • Complex SQL queries and need to update analytic dashboards in real time
