3 Background and Company Performance Industry Challenges With the increase in data traffic across network infrastructure, operators are facing an uphill struggle in deploying an adequate number of network probes, on top of their network plane, to monitor quality of experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS) from the customer s perspective. Network operators can monitor such metrics through probe-agnostic tools and can optimize the quality of the network, which is gaining more relevance, particularly with the advent of the virtualization of network functions. Probe-agnostic and probe-based network monitoring tools give a comprehensive and holistic view of key performance indicators (KPI) and help network operators gauge the overall radio access network. However, as KPIs are not gauged from an individual perspective, network operators could possibly overlook customers of high value, despite the fact that generic network metrics look normal. Network operators require a cost-effective solution that can monitor customer satisfaction and rank individually based on urgency, thereby providing a more holistic approach to end-user monitoring. The urgency of such a cost-effective solution cannot be stressed enough, especially with the implementation of small cells and the advent of self-organizing networks (SON) and cloudbased radio access networks (CRAN). The complexity of the network infrastructure is growing at a high rate and is further enhanced by long-term evolution (LTE) deployments, on top of legacy-based 2G and 3G networks. Network visibility can be reduced substantially, and a simple anomaly that could come from anywhere can have a detrimental effect on network quality. Network operators need to be proactive in neutralizing these anomalies when they appear. As network complexity grows, the time when an anomaly is detected to the moment it has been resolved should become closer to real-time conditions. Product Family Attributes and Business Impact Match to Needs Accanto Systems intelligent Customer Experience Management (icem) product is a comprehensive set of tools that are connected to a number of probe-based and probeagnostic network monitoring and analysis systems. Network operators leverage this product to understand actual QoE perceived by the end user by measuring KPIs from a minimum of 5 data sources which include the core network, the radio network, the service itself, the end user, and the end user s device. The individual QoE metrics are then fed into the system s algorithm, which computes technical promoter scores (TPS) for those individuals. TPS is a numeric value representing the actual network quality that is near real time, which is compared with the net promoter scores (NPS) obtained through surveys dispatched to end users. NPS values are calculated by determining the number of satisfied and dissatisfied customers on the ground. The correlation between NPS and TPS is observed and the difference in values, if any, needs to be numerically brought to a minimum. This process is Frost & Sullivan We Accelerate Growth

4 done through network planning and optimization methods that include enhanced customer experience analytics, root cause analysis, and recommendations that will enhance QoE and QoS metrics. Each customer is graded based on various parameters such as whether or not the end user is part of an enterprise or if the network operator s customer has a degree of importance over others. Basically, the entire end-user group is prioritized based on the average revenue generated per person. The icem product is essentially a network management system that proactively neutralizes anomalies that could creep up in the network. The solution significantly reduces the degree of discontent that could permeate the customer base, particularly among customers who have a high degree of importance from a revenue generation perspective. Design The user interface incorporated into the icem product provides its engineers with a one-stop comprehensive view of the network s performance. The geo-location interface provides a schematic representation of customer experience in real time within a particular geographic location. The degree of importance associated with each customer is color coded. For instance, red pixels represent VIP customers who are experiencing significant issues with their network quality, ensuring that those issues are not easily overlooked by network operators. KPIs associated with each customer can be brought up with a click of a button. By comparing network data with historic information, network engineers can create a pattern and predict future events on the network with a higher rate of accuracy. In addition, probable causes for disruption in normal situations are listed automatically, along with the degree of impact they might have on the network. The sleek design of the icem user interface enables the network engineer to identify a dissatisfied customer of potentially high importance, select that customer, and incorporate the necessary changes by comparing historic data trends and active issues based on recommendations generated automatically by the system. Product/Service Value In 2013, Accanto Systems partnered with Actian Corporation, a specialist in Big Data analytics. By successfully leveraging the Actian Vector into its own icem product, Accanto Systems provided its end users with an enhanced database and number crunching capabilities, compared to what was offered by its competitors. With the capability of generating over 1.4 million measurements per second through a single server, the system significantly reduces the amount of hardware required and, hence, the capital investment associated with procuring such hardware. Actian s Vector solution is one of many other solutions from various third-party vendors that have successfully integrated into the icem product suite. By leveraging Big Data Frost & Sullivan We Accelerate Growth

5 technologies into its own solution, Accanto Systems can offer its end users a degree of scalability that is unparalleled to any other solution offered in the market today. Partnerships with specialists from other verticals enhance an open eco system in which end users can operate. Partnerships with network monitoring participants such as NetScout Systems enable the operator to assimilate information using NetScout probes and feed it into the icem solution for further processing. By assimilating information from the network infrastructure by means of probes as well as from the operations support system (OSS), the icem product can compute a QoE that has a higher degree of accuracy than any other. Human Capital An organization s degree of success is measured by the ingenuity of its engineers. Since its establishment in 1996, Accanto Systems has witnessed a high rate of year-on-year (YOY) growth, which was primarily achieved through the acquisition of highly skilled talent from a broad range of spectrums across the mobile and telecommunications industry. The degree of cross domain expertise enables the company to assist its end users who are typically from a broad range of telecommunications background worldwide. A trend that is gaining more relevance YOY is the shift from traditional customer relationships to one built upon mutual partnerships. End users prefer that network testing vendors take an equal share of responsibility during pre-deployment of the network infrastructure. The high degree of versatility associated with each engineer at Accanto Systems, in addition to the high degree of cross domain expertise that cumulatively represents over 60 years of industry know-how, enables Accanto Systems to assist its end users better and ensure they obtain the most out of its product. Growth Potential Based out of Finland, Accanto Systems was founded through the merger of LTE innovation and Sunrise Telecom s Protocol Product Group (PPG). Since its inception in 1996, the company has been a specialist in protocol analyzers and network monitoring systems. The organization witnessed restructuring after the sale of its probe-based network monitoring business unit to NetScout Systems in 2012 and the acquisition of InstantCEM in October These events helped the organization shift its focus to and re-enforce its commitment in the area of customer experience management. Today, the organization is an established provider and a sought after consultant in its area of specialization. Unlike most other market participants, the company s success is attributed to its focus on inherent problems that its end users face on a daily basis, rather than provide a product with a wide scope. Over the years, Accanto Systems success has been recognized through many accolades, and the company has witnessed an acquisition rate of 2 network operators YOY. At present, Accanto Systems caters to a number of Tier I network operators, including Elisa, the Vodafone Group, and Orange. With its unwavering ability to offer superior customer experience enhancement solutions to its end users, the potential list Frost & Sullivan We Accelerate Growth

6 of network operators is bound to increase through the years. Conclusion Accanto Systems icem is an innovative customer experience enhancement product that improves customers QoE on a network. The icem algorithm, which forms the backbone of the product, proactively monitors and analyses the network infrastructure. It provides the network operator with a greater degree of visibility into its network, thereby providing QoE and QoS metrics that have a higher degree of accuracy and substantially reducing the degree of discontent experienced by its customers. With the proliferation of CRAN expected to grow at the high rate of 40% YOY, the urgency of such solutions among network operators is expected to change in direct correlation. Frost & Sullivan is proud to bestow the 2015 Product Leadership award to Accanto Systems. Frost & Sullivan We Accelerate Growth

7 Significance of Product Leadership Ultimately, growth in any organization depends upon customers purchasing from your company, and then making the decision to return time and again. A comprehensive product line, filled with high-quality, value-driven options, is the key to building an engaged customer base. To achieve and maintain product excellence, an organization must strive to be best-in-class in three key areas: understanding demand, nurturing the brand, and differentiating from the competition. Understanding Product Leadership Demand forecasting, branding, and differentiation all play a critical role in finding growth opportunities for your product line. This three-fold focus, however, must be complemented by an equally rigorous focus on pursuing those opportunities to a best-in-class standard. Customer communications, customer feedback, pricing, and competitor actions must all be managed and monitored for ongoing success. If an organization can successfully parlay product excellence into positive business impact, increased market share will inevitably follow over time. Frost & Sullivan We Accelerate Growth
