Polystar, a leading supplier of Service Assurance, Network Monitoring and Test Solutions for the telecom market, today announced that Rural NetCo Ltd, a Tanzanian based communications company, has successfully implemented Polystar's Network and Quality Assurance solution, that helped to considerably improve telecommunications services in rural and underserviced African areas.
Rural NetCo has recently implemented a high-speed shared mobile broadband access network, which represents a totally new concept of business in
. The shared mobile broadband network serves every operator through one multi-standard network and provides an affordable end-to-end sharing service in the underserviced rural areas, resulting in a high quality experience for the end-users. An efficient utilisation of the shared infrastructure allows a considerable costs reduction, both in terms of capital and operational expenditures, while the company's services enable a wider coverage with less environmental impact and more affordable ICT facilities. Following the success, Rural NetCo has expanded its 3G coverage to 23 regions throughout
, which will allow more service opportunities for the operators and will result in a better broadband access for subscribers.
To better serve the operators using the access network and to deliver statistics based on call or data volume, a backhaul network provider Rural NetCo had required an external reporting and troubleshooting tool. The Polystar's solutions provide Rural NetCo with the real-time troubleshooting capabilities and a highly sophisticated reporting tool that enable network provider to track trends and usage of the network and proactively plan and optimise its network. With the Polystar's solution in place, Rural NetCo can accurately pinpoint bottlenecks and outages in real-time over the whole network, assuring high level of service quality. Polystar also delivers statistical information needed for monitoring of the Rural NetCo infrastructure utilisation and invoicing of network operators for the used services.
