During the modernization campaign, all 2G broadcast stations (60% of the network’s total amount) were upgraded t o the new equipment, which resulted in a unified 2G/3G/4G telecom field using same-vendor equipment.
The new same-vendor network resulted in a number of advantages for both the service provider, and its customers – such as improved service quality and new options.
In particular, the successful voicecall ratio has increased up to 99.2%, with a license threshold of 95%, at under 0.5% of interruptions (compared to a threshold of under 5%). Also, the signal level inside buildings, elevators and basements has improved by 20%. Moreover, the coverage area has increased by 18.5%: it underwent an optimization in public places that are often marked by increased access demand, and also in locations with previously uneven coverage.
For the service provider, the same-vendor network allowed to increase the speed for targeted bandwidth increase of voicecall network, which also helps to quickly implement new technologies for a variety of uses, such as increased Internet bandwidth.
In addition, the same-vendor network allowed to improve the quality of transition between different-generation networks. At the moment, MegaFon customers can use 2G, 3G and 4G networks, each with its own advantages and capabilities, and even the most cutting-edge smartphone may require 4G, 3G and 2G access at once depending on the situation. Such multi-generation network access requires high quality of transitions, which can be organized the best in a same-vendor network.
The modernization was carried out during the off-peak hours: thanks to a dedicated technique developed by the service provider, it had next to no effect on the customers. For example, during a disassembly of a broadcast station, the hundreds of customers serviced by it were automatically transfered to other access points nearby, without any experienced access quality drop.
“Quality of service is one of the most crucial requirements for a service provider. Our large-scale network modernization in the region will further improve the lead of MegaFon and serve to the advantage for each of our 840,000 customers in the Penza region,” noted the director for the Penza branch of MegaFon Alexei Bryukhachev.
