Cambridge, MA, August 31, 2012– Groundhog Technologies today announces the successful service delivery of its CovMo™ product in a UMTS network with one of its partners to identify hotspot candidates for Small Cell deployment and to offload high data traffic load by smartphone users.
CovMo™ is the industry’s first geo-location product which supports multi-technology networks from 2G, 3G, to LTE.
The Small Cell project kicked off earlier this year and was successfully rendered to one of the largest operators in the US. Groundhog Technologies provided the CovMo™ system and assisted the vendor to pinpoint those geo-located hotspots which were a good candidate for Small Cell deployment. Working together with the vendor CovMo™ achieved offload of more than 10%, utilizing Small Cells, without affecting neighboring cells. This is yet another example proving the readiness of CovMo™ as a fully automated and comprehensive system to help operators to offload continues growing data utilization by smartphones.
CovMo™ geo-locates network traffic and events to high resolution. Based on breakthrough research in Chaos Theory, CovMo™ applies a new way to pinpoint network issues and various KPIs with high geographical resolution and accuracy, using big data available from the live network. CovMo™ is also the industry’s first geolocation product that can detect indoor-specific issues based on multi-dimensional modeling. The capability to differentiate indoor issues from outdoors is especially important for LTE network optimization and troubleshooting because the majority of data traffic happens indoor, while conventional approaches such as drive test are more applicable to identify outdoor issues.
