CommProve has announced that it is delivering an LTE network monitoring capability upgrade to Dhiraagu’s existing 2G/3G performance monitoring system in the Maldives. The new platform will provide capabilities to allow protocol analysis, end-to-end tracing, troubleshooting and KPI reporting, as well as several new Customer Experience Management (CEM) modules for LTE. ‘Dhiraagu has the largest 3G and 4G LTE network in Maldives, and is the only mobile operator that provides 3G services to all inhabited islands within the Maldives,’ said Mohamed Musad, director of Networks at Dhiraagu, adding: ‘We’re already moving rapidly to extend 4G services to those customers, and it is important that we continue to deliver the high quality service that our customers expect. That is why we are investing in CommProve’s service assurance and CEM solutions, to allow us to ensure subscribers are getting the best possible connectivity, reliability and bandwidth from our network.’
In September Dhiraagu launched an LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) network using carrier aggregation (CA) technology in the 1800MHz and 2600MHz frequency bands, while also completing a nationwide 3G mobile broadband rollout across all inhabited islands.
