Many different and fragmented proprietary scores have swept the market over the years and the methods of scoring are not transparent. Therefore, the ETSI STQ group has harmonized the process and released the technical report TR 103559, which defines best practices for network QoS benchmark testing.
The Network Performance Score (NPS), which is integrated in Rohde & Schwarz’s Smart Platform, is an ETSI-ratified methodology that:
- Characterizes the overall network performance in a single, transparent and QoE-centric metric
- Compares the quality of mobile networks within a market and globally for the purposes of benchmarking and optimization campaigns
