We design mobile networks with sustainable business value

For over 30 years, we have been supporting Operators, Regulators, Vendors, and Users alike in extracting the maximum value from the mobile network assets and investments.


Omnitele has been supporting leading operators for over 30 years in extracting the maximum value from their mobile network assets and investments. We have proven experience in driving revenue and customer experience with network design, planning and optimisation, as well as in reducing network operating costs and making the most of the network investments. 

Omnitele is also your trusted partner in strategic considerations such as spectrum acquisition, vendor management, technical due diligence, or 5G transformation, in addition to which some operators have outsourced their network planning and design to Omnitele. 

What unites all of the above, is Omnitele’s overarching focus in making you successful.

Revenue Enhancement

The network remains a key lever for revenue enhancement for operators. Understanding how and where to have a better network than the competition, or driving ARPU and usage while reducing churn based on network design and QoS targets are examples of the type of assignments through which Omnitele supports the operators.

Cost reduction & investment optimisation

A universal challenge faced by operators is the decoupling of data usage growth from revenue growth. This, in turn, is putting increasing pressure on network operating costs, as well as in ensuring the maximum value from the network investments.

Omnitele has supported many operators with their operating cost reduction programmes, from merged or joint networks to active spectrum management to becoming an outsourcing partner. Similarly, for future investments, Omnitele has developed a methodology that enables operators to compare different investment options, and provide the optimal solution given the spectrum assets, QoS targets, and budget available.

Customer Experience Improvement

The Network remains the single most important touchpoint for customers, directly driving customer experience, satisfaction and loyalty. Omnitele has extensive experience in supporting operators in reaching the desired customer experience – sometimes even without additional investments – as well as in predicting future customer experience bottlenecks and addressing them proactively even before the problems materialise.

Network & Spectrum Sourcing

As the single biggest cost driver, network and network strategy are inherently linked to the company strategy. For example, evaluating 5G licenses, selecting a network vendor, or building a spectrum strategy dictate the future direction of the company. Omnitele can support operators with these strategic considerations, bringing experience from 1000+ projects and 100+ countries to the decision making.

Mobile communication has proven to drive economic value of the country with improvements not only in connectivity, but also in productivity and efficiency. Omnitele has supported multiple regulators in their quest to unlock this value, from spectrum related matters to monitoring to introduction of new technologies and services.

Spectrum management

Spectrum remains one of the most valuable national assets, and careful management and utilisation are of utmost importance. Omnitele  can support regulators for example on techno-economic studies for introduction of spectrum and/or technologies (e.g. 5G in 700 MHz, 3.5 GHz, 26 GHz), evaluation of spectrum scenarios, including valuation of spectrum bands, or on modelling of different spectrum deployment scenarios, including traffic growth models and development of Quality of Service levels.

Network monitoring

Omnitele provides independent operator performance benchmarks, as well as verification of spectrum license conditions (including coverage, Quality of Service, spectrum usage, data throughputs, and more). Omnitele also supports regulators in defining the industry standards for the metrics of network quality measurements and benchmarks.

New technology assessment

Omnitele can support the regulators with international industry and technology experience on developing policies for new technologies. This can include development of cost models for new service deployment, or scenario investment analysis. Current, often requested topics include 5G investment analysis and network sharing scenario modelling.


Leading network vendors use Omnitele’s services for independent verification and expertise on network benchmarking and design, planning, and optimisation. This enables the vendors to focus on their core business, whilst not having to worry on the other activities thanks to trustworthy partner.

Network benchmarking

Omnitele has over 30 years of experience in network benchmarking and field measurements, and has expertise on all of the latest technologies including 5G. The benchmarking services may include cluster and site verification, and cover both indoor and outdoor measurements. Moreover, the benchmarking measurements may be complemented with crowdsourced data for even more detailed analysis.

Design, planning, and optimisation

Omnitele can support network vendors on all their design, planning, and optimizsation related needs. This may include from high-level or low-level network design, to outsourcing mobile network design, planning and optimisation operations based on SLAs to Omnitele. Operators can leverage Omnitele’s vast experience and expert resources in project management, in addition to which the support may include network capacity management, new features introduction, or network swaps and/or network sharing. What unites all of the above, is the ability for the vendor to trust in Omnitele. We are a safe pair of hands.

In addition to the mobile operators, regulators, and network vendors, Omnitele supports different user organisations on their radio network related needs. Many companies and organisations in this diverse group use radio networks as an enabler: you might be the army, police, rail operator, IoT provider, or perhaps a company utilising a mobile network, which would benefit from the support of a world-leading network design company. The exact scope will be tailored for each assignment, but the principle remains the same: Omnitele will ensure the user organisation can extract the maximum value out of the assets and/or investments.

Is your site grid ready for 5G?

5G introductions that are going on or in the plans in several countries around the world are  bringing the radio network planning once more into the focus. With 5G new, higher frequency bands and new service requirements, like higher data rates and low latency will be introduced. This means new requirements for the radio network and will require an update of network planning rules and thresholds. Even though operators typically utilise their existing site grid as basis for 5G rollouts, some changes for sites might be needed as the existing site grid and site configurations may not always provide an…

Voice over LTE

Although commercially launched in 2014, to date only about 30% of LTE networks around the world provide VoLTE voice services. VoLTE improves the mobile voice experience substantially. The improvement is most noticeable in lower call set up times. Voice Quality Mean Opinion Score (MOS) will increase and VoLTE allows for adaptation by all IP 5G networks. Migrating voice services from 2/3G to 4G LTE facilitates sunset strategies for legacy technologies, thereby freeing frequency bands for more spectrum-efficient 4G and 5G technologies. Implementation of VoLTE not only requires the installation of an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) node, but it also requires…

Objective metric for customer experience benchmark

Background One of the objectives of a benchmark campaign is to be able to certify its results in terms of a statistically relevant statement on the ranking of the tested operators. In the by Omnitele applied “be-the-customer” benchmark approach these results indicate the Customer Experience levels rendered by the tested operators. Concerning the presentation of the Customer Experience, the following complications do arise: • In mature markets the average results for Customer Experience of data- and OTT services are very close. Hence in order to achieve statistically significant differences between the performance level of the tested operators relatively large measurement…
