Speech and multimedia Transmission Quality (STQ); Best practices for robust network QoS benchmark testing and scoring
|Publication Date:||1 August 2019|
The present document describes the best practices for benchmarking of mobile networks. The goal of the benchmarking is to determine the best provider or operator for a designated area with respect of the services accessed with a mobile phone. The tests conducted are telephony, video streaming, data throughput and more interactive applications such as browsing, social media and messaging. This goal is achieved by executing benchmarking tests in designated test areas that represent or actually cover a major part of the users of mobile services. The results collected in the various areas are individually and collectively weighted and summarized into an overall score.
Due to the rapid development of the mobile technology and consumption habits of the users, the quality of experience of the users changes over time even when the objective to measure the quality of service does not change. The present document needs to keep up with those changes and does so by parameterizing the individual factors that contribute to the score.
