This comprehensive product line offers the following key capabilities:

- Amdocs Automatic Intelligent Correlation
- Amdocs Self-Optimizing Networks
- Amdocs Network Acceptance
- Amdocs Network Benchmarking
Amdocs Customer Experience Geo-Location automatically builds traffic and Quality-of-Experience maps to identify areas of network congestion as well as other network performance issues. It enables service providers to focus on the subscriber, location, handset/device, and activity for quick and efficient resolution of prevalent issues. The solution aids service providers in targeting HetNet access technologies as well as building location-specific demographics and revenue depictions by linking to Amdocs’ business support system (BSS) data. Other features such as customer, location, and usage behavior information help service providers maximize the return on their network investment.
Amdocs Automatic Intelligent Correlation is a vital capability for reducing network issue resolution and optimization task time. By quickly identifying the root cause of issues, it has helped improve engineering resource efficiency and enhance mobile network performance in real-life deployments.
Amdocs Self-Optimizing Networks simplifies network optimization through automation, so service providers can maximize the utilization of existing network resources. Amdocs Network Acceptance has proved its worth in the RAN market with its ability to reduce risk, ensure network equipment vendor control, and enable the independent verification of network quality before site acceptance. Last but not least, Amdocs Benchmarking helps service providers make the most of voice and data performance benchmarking information. Using automated data processing and analysis, it identifies network areas of suboptimal customer experience or inferior competitive position. Service providers can then plan network performance improvements to reactively or proactively address customer dissatisfaction.
