Telecom service assurance involves a systematic process of enhancing and improving the quality of all the services provided by communication service providers (CSP) to the customer. The service assurance ensures that the services offered over the network adhere to the predefined service quality level so as to provide optimal subscriber experience. Service assurance includes several tools and solutions including fault and event management, performance management, quality of service management, network traffic management, network and service testing, and customer experience management. With the growing need among CSPs to differentiate from other players and with the introduction of value-added services such as VOIP, IPTV, video services, the need for assurance services has significantly increased. Assured quality service, on the other hand, has become critical to telecommunication providers. A number of telecommunication providers are experiencing increasing churn due to intense competition in the industry and lower switching costs. Customer loyalty is diminishing in the telecom industry as service providers are competing to provide efficient services at lower costs. Due to this trend, telecommunication companies are investing in service assurance solutions. These solution helps telecommunication companies to provide quality service, enhanced customer experience, ease the network complexity, and improve customer churn. Churn rate is the percentage of subscribers to a telecom service who have discontinued the subscription to that service. By deploying telecom service assurance tools or solution, telecommunication companies can significantly improve the services (voice/ data, video among others) offered to subscribers which in turn can lead to lower churn rate. A number of large-sized telecommunication companies, with a strong presence in their respective regions, including Vodafone, MTC, Arqiva, T-Mobile, and Telefonica, have adopted intelligent assurance and analytics. These telecom providers have realized the necessity to offer quality services, hence there have been increasing investments in various telecom service assurance solutions including fault and event management, performance management, and quality and service management.
