The cost-efficient solution for big scale real-time measurement and reporting.

What Is It?

Gossiper Measurement Robots are autonomous measurement units responsible for the 24/7 performance monitoring of Radio and IP networks. Collection of different test case results and metrics are available, targeting to provide the closest estimation of end user experience. They offer high reliability and consistency of collected measurement data, aligned with the latest ITU/ETSI standards and KPI recommendations, as well as with best practices used worldwide.

Autonomous measurement results in 3 easy steps:

  1. Device Configuration - Create a test plan and send it to the measurment robot
  2. Measurement and data upload - Wait for the test sequence to be executed and the results reported to the server
  3. Analyses and Reporting - All you need is in Questio Analytics Platform
