HELSINKI/ESPOO, FINLAND, February 20, 2023
Creanord and Netradar announced a strategic partnership today that aims at building an end-to-end solution for measuring and managing network performance.
Low latency and stable jitter are critically important for many web apps, XR/VR, gaming, metaverse, cars, VoIP, and videoconferencing. Often, latency is much more important than a very high bit rate. Latency is as good as the weakest link and node in the telecom operator network.
Together, Creanord and Netradar provide telecom operators a full end-to-end picture of their network performance. Netradar measures latency from the mobile device to the network or cloud and Creanord measures the performance of the transport and core networks. Operators can perform a segmented analysis of network performance to determine whether the issues are in the radio access network, backhaul transport or core for fast root-cause detection and resolving.
“Our joint solution improves troubleshooting end-to-end issues. Netradar helps telecom operators to identify radio coverage areas with poor user experience and to verify radio interface performance. Creanord in turn steps in to troubleshoot backhaul and core network when an issue is first isolated to those domains,” said Tomi Paatsila, CEO of Netradar.
“Creanord solution continuously tracks network performance in backhaul and core and identifies sites and hops with degraded performance. Our co-operation with Netradar extends this performance visibility to cover also the radio part, and thus provides a full end-to-end view for Mobile Network Operators to detect and fix performance degradations before they are visible to end users,” states Jorma Hämäläinen, CEO of Creanord.
Creanord and Netradar participate in the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona February 27 – March 2, 2023.
CEO & Co-Founder
This was the first local GSMA event attended by Netradar and based on my experience we will be attending more of those in the future. This built up the confidence that Mobile World Congress in Barcelona during February 27 – March 2, 2023, will have the magnitude similar or even greater than pre-COVID.
