The contract will also eventually extend to NII's next generation network in Brazil, which will likely launch by the end of this year, according to Astellia.
NII will use Astellia's end-to-end probe-based solution in its next-generation wireless networks in Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru. Astellia's solution intends to help NII understand the dependency among network equipment, subscribers, mobile devices and voice and data services.
The solution will gather insights to allow optimization and engineering teams to isolate issues affecting customer experience and identify root causes. This will better ensure a high quality customer experience for Nextel subscribers.
Don McElroy, vice president of budget and performance at NII Holdings, said, "Astellia’s monitoring solution is a key contributor in helping NII optimize and monetize traffic in a particularly complex multi-technology and multi-vendor environment."
