between detection of an anomaly or service degradation and auto-generated alert
for up to 8 MNOs and/or MVNOs tested continuously per Stratus unit
Many issues impacting macro RF networks and in-building systems can go undetected. Issues such as repeater faults, misaligned antennas, misconfigured amplifiers, and DAS installation problems that disable couplers, cables and antennas.
The result is compromised or even no coverage, poor customer experience and SLA’s not being met. These issues can only be identified by drive or walk testing the area or site. And given the problems with traditional testing tools and methods, these coverage and quality issues can persist for months, or even years. Operators are blind to the problem, while tenants, customers and subscribers suffer degraded communications access.
Monitoring cellular RF networks continuously and in real time is the answer, but hasn’t been possible to date. And particularly not at the scale and cost required by cellular operators, service providers, neutral hosts and site owners & managers.
These challenges have only grown worse with small cell and expanding in-building DAS coverage, and will worsen further as 5G architectures are introduced.
Over 5 years of development has culminated in the Stratus monitor. Stratus augments our next generation drive and walk testing solutions with the industry’s first and only low-cost, real-time continuous multi-band cellular RF monitoring platform.
Stratus units are small and inconspicuous, being roughly equivalent in size and weight to a typical domestic smoke detector. They can be installed indoors, or outdoors in IP67-rated enclosures – ideally at the ratio of 1 Stratus monitor per sector. Power can be supplied via power over Ethernet (PoE), which reduces installation costs by eliminating the need for expensive mains supply, or by mains AC or low voltage DC.
Stratus give you real-time visibility into the performance of all bands for up to up to 8 operators concurrently on passive or active DAS, of repeaters, and of macro networks – irrespective of RAN equipment or vendor.
With Stratus, you always know definitively what your customers’ QoE is, what your QoS is, and whether any issue or network degradation is occurring – as it’s occurring. Stratus enables you to implement a true service assurance framework for the first time.
We immediately upload log files to our cloud for instantaneous post-processing, and fully-automated generation of management-quality reports in MS Word, complete with plots and tabulated results.
Robust and easy-to-use Cerno data collectors eliminate need for skilled testing personnel – tests can be undertaken more quickly & frequently and at lower cost
Tests can be confirmed to be correct & complete before tester leaves site – eliminating multiple truck rolls and lowering cost
Fully integrated & automated reporting produces final reports with plots, tables & statistical calculations within minutes of test completion
Faster testing & reporting, delivering higher productivity at lower cost
Our unique subscription-based services model eliminates CAPEX and significantly lowers your OPEX costs
Continuously monitor the performance of both macro networks and inbuilding systems in real-time with Stratus Obtain real-time visibility into the performance of all bands, and be notified in real-time when outages, equipment failures or service degradation issues occur.
All monitoring data ever recorded is stored permanently in our custom-built cloud database and can be located and retrieved within seconds.
A complete GUI workbench provides you with the ability to easily manage individual Stratus units or entire fleets, and to rapidly locate and identify the cause of any service-impacting issue (See Reporting and Analytics for more).
