Nemo WindCatcher and Nemo Analyze aggregate Network Performance Score (NPS) from field test data

Network Performance Score (NPS) focuses on experience quality as perceived by customers (QoE). NPS rates the overall QoE of a network based on main KPIs from different services and summarizes it as a single score. NPS is based on existing technology-agnostic KPIs as defined by ETSI and ITU-T. By default, NPS considers voice (40%) and data (60%) services but with Nemo solutions, customers can adjust the weights in all aggregation levels, according to country-specific characteristics and customer usage profiles.

The Nemo solution for NPS compares the quality of mobile networks and visualizes the quality of experience (QoE) that the end users perceive when running common applications inside a phone with real use cases in different environments. The NPS score aggregation has been integrated into the Nemo WindCatcher and Nemo Analyze products. Details of the NPS score can be easily studied and results visualized by clicking different views. 

Measure and calculate KPIs according to the latest standards

Nemo solutions provide a market-leading set of data and trigger points for benchmarking report calculation. Nemo solutions provide measurement results in a format that also enables using customer's own post-processing tools for calculation. Pre-made workbooks enable the creation of instant reports easily. Keysight’s Nemo analytics solutions can also be tailored to visualize KPIs from the operators’ latest benchmarking reports.

Nemo Analyze is a highly efficient and fully scalable analysis tool for benchmarking, automated troubleshooting, and statistical reporting based on drive test data. For benchmarking, its predetermined report templates help compare KPIs from different operators, technologies, and time frames, and visualize the results in a single report. Nemo Analyze supports all the major network technologies and provides a complete automated data processing chain with other Nemo tools from raw measurement data to automatically generated results in workbook format.

Nemo WindCatcher is a vendor-neutral, multi-data analytics solution that provides the most comprehensive network analysis available in the market. Supports a wide range of data inputs, e.g. drive test data, including 5G NR, and Operations Support Systems (OSS) data. Nemo WindCatcher Server automates key drive test use cases, such as acceptance, benchmarking, optimization, and monitoring.

Measure real consumer UX directly in the UE

  • Nemo Active Testing Application (NATA) performs on-device measurements where all services and data protocols are running in a smartphone
  • Measurements are made running the same applications on the smartphone that real consumers use
  • Performs measurements from end-user perspective and provides insight on the real QoE. NATA uses IMS/VoLTE protocols, settings and OTT applications of the UE in the very same way as real consumers would use. The NATA solution is cost-effective and easy-to-use, preventing user errors as additional hardware for audio MOS and other measurements is not needed. It is also a future-proof solution. 
  • The Nemo solution supports consumer application and service testing for customer experience benchmarking for the most common applications like YouTube, Netflix, Dropbox, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. The solution measures key service accessibility, retainability, and integrity KPIs that can impact customer QoE as well as in-depth KPIs for the most commonly used applications. 
  • Many other Android applications like Snapchat, Line, WeChat and Ookla Speedtest, can be run inside the test terminal
