欧州の通信事業者が提供するモバイルブロードバンドネットワークのパフォーマンス European Carrier Mobile Broadband Network Performance
出版日: 2011年03月01日 ページ情報: 英文 115 Pages
概要

欧州の通信事業者は、モバイルブロードバンドサービスを音声通話サービスの陳腐化と月間通信事業収入(ARPU)の落ち込みに対処するため切り札にしようとしていますが、このためには、データ通信のパフォーマンスを良好な状態に保ちつつ常時、信頼性の高い方法でサービスを提供することが求められます。ネットワークのパフォーマンスが大きく変動するような事態が頻繁に繰り返されると、ユーザーの評価が下がり、離反率が高まって、加入者を大きく減らしてしまう危険があります。

当レポートは、欧州28ヶ国で事業を展開している94の移動体通信事業者を取り上げ、データ通信の速度、遅延、ネットワークの質、スマートフォンの普及状況などを比較検討したもので、モバイルブロードバンドの需要拡大につながるアプリケーションやサービス、HSPA+の影響などについての分析に加え、iPhoneとAndroid携帯端末の比較も盛り込み、概略以下の構成でお届けいたします。

Abstract

Analysing and comparing the data speed, latency, network quality and smartphone penetration for 94 mobile carriers in 28 European countries

image1

Overview

Carriers are using mobile broadband as their weapon of choice in the fight against the commoditization of voice and falling ARPU. It is therefore imperative that carriers have networks which can consistently and reliably deliver good data performance to their customers.

This study is based on the data speed and latency measurements collected for 94 wireless carriers operating within 28 European countries using a smartphone app. This approach has facilitated the collection of millions of individual test readings from tens of thousands of users who have conducted tests for virtually every mobile carrier in virtually every country in the world. Using these readings, ARCchart has been able to estimate averages for download speed, upload speed, latency and overall network quality, along with a measure of smartphone penetration.

This report shows there is wide variation in the network performance between carriers and there is a genuine risk that carriers which develop a reputation for inferior performance will suffer high churn and an overall loss of subscribers.

Topics of coverage include:

  • Research methodology
  • The importance of mobile broadband to carriers
  • Theoretical versus real-world data speeds
  • Analysis and comparison of the performance of country data networks
  • Analysis and comparison of the performance of carriers' data networks
  • Carrier data throughput profiles
  • The factors influencing a carrier' s 3G data speed
  • Measuring the ' quality' of a network
  • The problem of unreliable networks
  • iPhone and Android carrier market share
  • Country smartphone penetration
