Ericsson Optimized Telefonica Brasil for World Cup

Ericsson supplied its Key Event Experience network optimization solution to support Telefonica | Vivo operations during the 2014 World Cup.

The Key Event Experience solution, which was used for the first time in Brazil by the operator, enhances the perceived quality of network operators by improving the user experience during periods of increased traffic.

Two servers were installed adjacent to the service provider's network management system to extract network performance data and report every 15 minutes during the period of the World Cup, to evaluate the performance of the network and indicate preventive actions.

Ericsson said its solution helps to meet demands when millions of users are concentrated in a specific area, sharing video, photos and tweets and pushing network capacity to its limit.
