TapRoot’s EMA for Customer Experience solution provides operators a subscriber centric view of network performance and Quality of Experience. Built on TapRoot’s EMA Platform, EMA for Customer Experience provides a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) focused on providing the deepest possible visibility to Quality of Experience.

Collecting KPI’s across a subscriber base gives operators key insight into where their network performance is acceptable, and where it can be improved. These KPI’s can also map to location, time-of-day, content consumption, subscriber segments, and other attributes to give operators previously unavailable insight into their network and service utilization.

Acquiring this data on-device improves the reach, breadth, and supports a wide set of KPI’s. TapRoot’s Embedded Mobile Analytics Platform provides both intuitive graphical reports as well as integrating with current network analysis tools by allowing those solutions to extend information collection from the network, to the device.
