Tektronix Communications today (16 June 2014) announced that it has been selected as the provider of monitoring and assurance solutions to optimise network performance and quality for Thailand's mobile communications operator, AIS.
AIS successfully acquired the UMTS licence in Thailand at the end of 2013.
Tektronix Communications and AIS have an ongoing relationship since 2009 when Tektronix was engaged to monitor AIS's 2G circuit-switched network. The new deal will enable the company to optimise network performance as the operator rolls out its new 3G network.
According to Tektronix Communications, AIS has tasked it to help its network operations teams gain deep visibility of the handover between 3G and 2G networks, to provide planning teams the network intelligence required to rollout the new 3G infrastructure, and to generate new opportunities for marketing to monetise the data that flows through the network.
In Phase 1 of the project, Tektronix Communications will monitor pure voice and VoIP session traffic across all parts of the core network using its Iris Session Analyzer and Iris Packet Inspector solutions.
It will also monitor and analyse inbound roaming data via its RIA solution. A small pilot will also be carried out for monitoring AIS's radio access network.
