REDUCE INITIAL TRIAGING TIME BY 80%
The Opportunity As front line experts, Tier 1 (T1) team’s capacity to quickly localize problems and make timely escalations is vital to improving Overall Subscriber Success Ratio and Mean Time To Know (MTTK). In one case scenario, the T1 team at a large North American carrier were inundated with alarms indicating that 51,000 roaming subscribers were experiencing LTE connectivity issues. Initial assessment from triage to escalation endured for an average of 5 hours, with every passing minute counting against a successful MTTK narrative
With persistent spikes in data failures impacting multiple markets, T1 support teams must quickly assess specific networks, offending devices, and subscribers through near real-time alerting with a precise path to examine historical evidence. At the time, the T1 team faced laborintensive workflows which prevented timely evaluations. T1 teams are measured on a series of activities to ensure timely closure of tickets – answering subscriber’s inquiries, initial troubleshooting of all incoming issues, and timely escalations. The ability to quickly close tickets directly impacts MTTK.
