Anritsu Co. announced that it worked with the two largest providers of mobile communications services in Mexico to ensure high quality, reliable voice and data for spectators, organizers, and competitors in the 2011 Pan American Games, which were held in Guadalajara, Mexico, October 14 to 30. Anritsu’s MasterClaw and Professional Services worked with the providers to ensure the wireless networks operate effectively during the two-week event, which is expected to have nearly one million spectators and more than 6000 competitors.

Anritsu worked with the two largest providers of mobile phone services to ensure that their networks are in the best possible condition to support the games. Before the games began, Anritsu’s consultants worked closely with the network operators’ experts to agree on the reports, dashboards and alarms that were necessary to evaluate network performance, and for the early detection of service-affecting problems as wireless traffic increases.

Upon the start of the games, Anritsu’s MasterClaw system began to capture details of every event in the network, allowing for deep analysis if a failure occurs. Simultaneously, by building up data from millions of individual events, the overall evaluation of network usage and performance is being understood.

The combination of Anritsu products and services reveal 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.

The Pan American Games are the second largest multi-sport event after the Olympic Games. It is held every four years, similar to the Olympics.
