When it comes to customer experience management, it is critical for telecom operators to understand their clients and how they consume services. In a video interview with RCR Wireless, Larry Lenhart, CEO of Carrier iQ, explained how carriers can get data by putting software on devices that collects information about cellular network and Wi-Fi usage, roaming, battery functionality and applications.
The software pulls that information through the network to a big data platform that processes the raw data into actionable intelligence.
According to Lenhart, carriers have been good at looking at their networks and useful information is coming from device usage.
He also commented on telecom analytics trends. “There are three critical things when you talk about big data analytics: understanding how you get a quick ROI; how you get information that you need and not all information; and how to work with one individual data base source,” he said.
