Anritsu Introduces eoCompass™ Radio Access Network Management Tool for MasterClaw® OSS System

New Tool that Integrates with MasterClaw Supports Network Optimization, Fault Investigation, Customer Care, and Network Planning

Anritsu Company introduces eoCompass™, a comprehensive radio access network (RAN) management solution that supports network optimization, fault investigation, customer care, and network planning. It fully integrates with Anritsu’s MasterClaw® end-to-end performance management system, and builds on the company’s established radio expertise retained from its successful GSM Compass tool.

eoCompass has been designed to address the RAN, which is a main source of dropped calls, slow downloads and poor quality voice connections. The RAN is also the most complex and expensive part of the mobile network to optimize, as the demands on it are very dynamic and change as subscribers move, use bandwidth-hungry applications, and enter buildings and vehicles. eoCompass is a superior alternative to drive tests, which have been used as the primary tool to optimize the RAN.

With eoCompass, information that is usually only available from drive tests is captured directly from the lub interface. Additionally, eoCompass provides 24/7 capture of all events in the radio network. Powerful visualization techniques enable users to overlay network performance on maps, and even geo-locate users based on reconstructing their call history. eoCompass includes a suite of applications that address the primary needs of network operations, planning, engineering, customer care, marketing, and executives.

Anritsu continues to extend its MasterClaw “built-in work-flows” strategy, so applications guide a user through a task – from problem detection to cause identification closing with resolution confirmation – in the shortest time and with the minimum number of “clicks.” MasterClaw enables users to manage their whole network – from IMS Core to UMTS Radio – with one tool, providing them with huge efficiency gains and a competitive advantage.

eoCompass is available now for regional or network-wide commercial deployment in UMTS networks.
