Anritsu A/S is working with the two largest providers of mobile communications services in Mexico to ensure high quality, reliable voice and data for the 2011 Pan American Games, which is taking place in Guadalajara, Mexico until 30 October.

The Pan American Games is the second largest multi-sport event after the Olympic Games, and also takes place every four years. With over one million tickets for sale, and over 6,000 competitors, this is an event that will stretch the local communications infrastructure far beyond any previous limits.

Anritsu is working with the two largest providers of mobile phone services to ensure that their networks are in the best possible condition to support the games. Even before the games started on 14 October, the company’s consultants cooperated closely with the network operators’ experts to agree the reports, dashboards and alarms that are necessary to evaluate the current network performance and for the early detection of service affecting problems as traffic increased.

Once the games began, Anritsu’s MasterClaw® system captured details of every event in the network, allowing deep analysis of any failures. Simultaneously, by building up a picture from millions of individual events, the overall story of network usage and performance can be understood. The combination of Anritsu products and services reveal the hidden stories of what is happening in the network in real-time. This supports decision making and action by the operators to deliver the highest quality of service and quality of experience.
