Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is the holy grail for Mobile Operators. It’s the final step in having a single all IP network offering better user experience, greater cost efficiencies and accelerated technology paths. Along with that, it brings a way to tackle existing OTT-type players by providing differentiated Voice Quality of Service (QoS). In fact, most Telecoms-focused conferences and publications talk continually about Voice over LTE (VoLTE): what it is, what it will offer and, more significantly, when it is coming.
Have you ever had something go wrong with your system? How do you find out people are having a bad experience while trying to use your enterprise communication system? Here are three ways I can think of – some of which less desirable than others.
Mobile Operators have so many things to consider when deciding how best to profit while still providing a great service to their customers.
The first step when considering testing contact center networks is to make you have a clear set of goals that others in the organization buy into. Your test plan can affect many other departments in your company beyond the contact center: marketing, finance, etc. You need to get them to buy in and you need to make sure the tests you’re performing covers their needs as well.
This year’s TM Forum event had a number of key themes including the old favorite, Customer Experience. I say old in that as a concept, Customer Experience, especially in the Telco world, has been around for a number of years. During this time it has of course evolved, but in doing so, it now means […]
Both Enterprises and Service Providers are attempting to find ways to handle increasingly complex technology environments. Better access to data and new tools to improve services and increase revenue are constantly being developed and adopted. While this is of course advantageous, it also creates a snarl of technology that is challenging to untangle.
Some companies are already attempting to understand how to deal with BYOD, while others haven’t even begun and are looking for direction. But everyone acknowledges it’s something that can’t be ignored. Whether or not companies officially sanction it is almost a moot point. It’s here and if you don’t find a way to deal with it, you will feel the impact.
Imagine how happy a mobile service provider (MSP) would be if instead of a customer calling in to complain “I’m having trouble with YouTube” they simply said “The video queuing mechanism on server SW-304 is overloaded.” The company could just fix the problem instead of transferring the call to an engineer to manually sort through the hundreds of possible factors that degrade service – all while the caller waits for an answer.
Are you including love in your customer lexicon? If not, maybe it’s time you started to. I just returned from Genesys G-Force in Boca Raton, FL. Once again, the Genesys team produced an excellent event for their customers and partners. A central theme this year was about establishing a one-to-one relationship with customers. The critical […]
Ever wondered why when you travel abroad and then switch on your mobile phone it takes so long to obtain service? Depending on how frequently you travel, you may notice that it takes several minutes before your phone obtains a connection. In some cases it can take significantly longer and you are left looking at your device screen, wondering if those service bars will ever actually appear. When they eventually do, your reaction is probably one of relief where your conclusion is that being a roamer, it simply takes time for you to connect with a foreign operator.
