Service providers find themselves analyzing ever-expanding volumes of data to better understand subscriber behavior and data consumption trends, with an eye towards delivering the quality of service their customers demand. This data overload stretches the capabilities of existing systems and threatens to erode operational efficiency by drowning engineers under a mountain of bits and bytes.
Network analytics tools have become a critical necessity for making sense of big data. But not all analytics tools are created equal. It’s important to ensure they have been designed by industry experts for analyzing the mission-critical areas carriers are focused on. At TEOCO, we offer a suite of trusted solutions that target the specific challenges engineers face.
NETWORK OPTIMIZATION ANALYTICS – MENTOR
A network is never static, especially in this new era of 5G and IoT. As traffic grows and demands change, the network constantly needs to be optimized to maintain the required quality of service your customers expect. Mentor is a radio-access network (RAN) optimization and analytics software tool that leverages network measurements and geolocation insights to troubleshoot service impacting issues.
Today’s networks are complex. With multiple technologies, vendors and layers, engineers need an end-to-end solution that monitors both the network, and the subscriber experience. Using a powerful optimization engine based on mobile measurements, Mentor delivers advanced RAN performance monitoring and optimization, along with deep dive troubleshooting and subscriber experience visualization tools.
Mentor’s extensive analytics capabilities provide insights across devices, subscribers, and locations. This is under-pinned by our geolocation engine, which leverages innovative positioning techniques for greater accuracy – utilizing a set of detailed map layers that include transportation, topographic and building data.

NETWORK GEO-ANALYTICS – COGNISENSE
Modern mobile networks generate vast amounts of valuable subscriber data. Geolocation information can be correlated to this data, enabling a variety of engineering, customer care, marketing and monetization use cases. But just matching subscriber data to location isn’t enough. Engineers require actionable insights. Insights that highlight the root cause of network issues for rapid resolution, along with dashboards and reports that can be customized to specific needs.
Uncovering the true value of customer and network data requires advanced geo-analytics tools paired with sophisticated visualization capabilities. CogniSense was built to deliver on these requirements; providing geo-analytics dashboards with a high-level view of network, subscriber and device performance, and also the ability to drill-down into charts and detailed GIS data to troubleshoot or analyze specific, business-driven issues.
ENCRYPTED DATA ANALYTICS – INSYNC
Data encryption provides customers with security and privacy, but it also has some drawbacks. When customer data is encrypted, CSPs are unable to understand what applications and services are being used – making it difficult to accurately plan and configure their network. This creates several challenges, especially when it comes to delivering maximum quality of service – because if carriers can’t see what services and applications are being used, they can’t configure their networks properly.
INsync is our solution for helping CSPs understand the encrypted data flows running across their network. Built on the fundamental premise that 100% of traffic will eventually be encrypted, INsync leverages state-of-the-art, advanced heuristics and machine learning to detect apps that utilize encrypted flows, so that service level objectives can be enforced, and quality can be ensured. It monitors, diagnoses, predicts and protects networks; providing real-time insights, performing root cause analysis and troubleshooting to isolate issues and assess where they are coming from – whether it’s within the network, from a content provider, from a device, or related to location.

SERVICE ASSURANCE ANALYTICS – HELIX
Tomorrow’s top service providers will be the ones that can deliver cost-effective, high-quality digital services. The ability to automate and optimize service assurance has become critical in order to cope with the increase in complexity and data volumes in the lead up to 5G. To get there, Helix Analytics has incorporated AI and Machine-Learning capabilities that enable CSPs to automate and optimize their operations and engineering processes.
Helix Analytics includes both predictive and reactive machine learning tools. From detecting anomalies and prioritizing alarms, to automating root-cause analysis and predicting service impact – Helix helps reduce the amount of data that needs to be acted upon, and the time and effort it takes to fix network outages.
Networks are changing, and service assurance tools must change as well. Let us become your essential partner in process automation; improving operational efficiency and enhancing the customer experience.

FAULT ANALYTICS - FAAST
Many of today’s network (NOC) and service operations center (SOC) teams are overworked and overwhelmed. Managing thousands of network alarms each day, these dedicated experts spend too much time searching for alarm correlations that are used to identify the root cause of commonly recurring network problems.
This is why we developed FaaST – Fault Analytics as a Service by TEOCO. Built to help your operational teams focus on resolving network problems more quickly, FaaST automatically points to the root cause of symptoms and resolves issues as they arise. FaaST unveils valuable insights that often go overlooked, creating visibility into problematic parts of your network.
FaaST follows a proven methodology that delivers actionable intelligence based on the latest machine-learning techniques for analyzing historical alarm data. This information is then reviewed by TEOCO’s team of telecom subject matter experts. We provide your operations and engineering teams with ongoing fault analytics and analysis through insight reports and actionable recommendations. These insights enable fast, reliable detection of the root cause of network outages and automate their resolution.
THE BUSINESS OF THE NETWORK – BUSINESS ANALYTICS
The financial aspects of operating a network are equally as important as the network itself. Our Business Analytics solutions combine granular views of subscriber information, network data and business transactions, allowing us to perform an in-depth, end-to-end analysis that delivers unexpected insights and powerful business recommendations. TEOCO’s business analytics solutions are recognized for delivering real value and real results – focused on increasing revenues, expanding margins and maximizing profitability in a multitude of ways.
An example of this is our trunk analytics offering, which optimizes network routing and termination costs, helping to maintain optimal trunk capacity across the network.
