(GWS) – a leading provider of data collection and analysis, performance monitoring, benchmarking and network planning solutions for the wireless industry – announced today that it has been named to the annual FierceWireless “Fierce 15” list, designating it as one of the top wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless editors evaluated hundreds of organizations, and found Global Wireless Solutions to one of the “fiercest,” proven by the company’s creativity and innovations in the marketplace.
“GWS has a creative solution to the age-old problem of network coverage issues. With its iPhone app, users can now take control and report network problems,” said Sue Marek, Editor-in-Chief of FierceWireless, an internationally recognized daily e-mail newsletter that reaches more than 70,000 senior wireless industry executives in over 100 countries and provides a quick, authoritative briefing on the day’s top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies.
GWS helps service providers improve their constantly evolving networks and operate more efficiently in today’s increasingly competitive and cost-conscious telecom market. The company collects technical data needed to present benchmarking information for voice and data services to carriers, as well as offer detailed analysis and provide assistance in diagnosing and correcting network problems. Earlier this year, GWS introduced two new products, TroubleSpots and MobiStat. TroubleSpots is a free iPhone coverage application that enables the phone’s users to report, in real time, when they experience areas of no wireless network coverage, dropped calls, failed call attempts failed data service and view their reported incidents. TroubleSpots immediately alerts GWS, which can report those problems to mobile operators, enabling them to optimize performance of voice and data networks used by millions of mobile customers worldwide. MobiStat is an interactive reporting and mapping tool designed to enable wireless carriers to quickly and efficiently assess network performance and identify trouble spots. The product’s graphical database allows carriers to compile, analyze and trend data for multiple year’s worth of drive tests for markets worldwide
