Just last month Singapore telco Singtel’s data analytics subsidiary DataSpark and Analysys Mason signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a network planning application to help mobile operators drive revenue and optimise capital expenditure.
The app is designed to help operators allocate capacity where most appropriate, by leveraging Dataspark’s Network CAPEX Optimiser platform to analyse datasets, including customer satisfaction scores and potential demand as well as network traffic and yield.
With the app, operators can choose the best location for new cellular sites or upgrade existing network infrastructure using insights gleaned from the data.
Ying Shao Wei, chief operating officer of DataSpark said the app with “could be a game-changer for telcos in that it can help them build their networks more efficiently and enhance their customer engagement”.
“By using the app to distill and analyse datasets, including past customer transactions, in a non-invasive manner, operators can customise products and services for specific customer segments to generate new revenue streams,” Wei said.LEARN HOW TO REDUCE YOUR RISK OF A CYBER ATTACK
