Abstract

The speech will focus on some projects developed @ ALTEN Italia 

  • Mobile Network Project: Costumers Network Quality TAC & MAO Activity
  • Digital Media Project: Luxottica and Telecom Italia

Mobile Network Project: Customers Network Quality TAC & MAO Activity
ALTEN Italia Spa has been developed a turn Key Project for the management of customers’ issues for the Vodafone Mobile Network thanks to the work of the team Technical Assurance Consumers (TAC) and Mobile Access Operation (MAO).
The Team is divided according to the vendors used: Nokia for the North and Huawei for the center-south.
When TAC group finds an anomaly in the network access, the management passes internally to the colleagues of MAO through the opening of specific tickets on the management tool.
MAO group performs targeted customer analysis and checks the performance of any serving cells by looking for Bad RxQ (poor quality), interference, throughput, pkt waste, coverage.
Possible MAO actions are:

  • Entrust technicians (or any other Vodafone groups) to check the system and replace the hardware;
  • Joint checks for interferential degradation;
  • Follow the whole process until it is resolved.

After MAO actions, TAC performs customer check call to verify the issues resolution.

Digital Media Project: Luxottica Radar Pace
Is a smart eye-wear that features a real-time voice activated coaching system, with
Bluetooth audio headset: it creates dynamic and personalized training programs and supports for the athletes. It has several components:

  • Oakley eyewear with integrated earbuds, microphone and sensors;
  • A mobile companion app for iOS and Android;
  • A cloud based back-end provides services and persistence.

Digital Media Project: TIM Vision 
Is an Internet video on demand (VOD) service by TIM/Telecom Italia that offers television shows, movies and TV series.
The set top box uses different technologies: Meego (a Linux based custom operating system) and Google's AndroidTV (a version of Android operating system designed for media players). It works as a Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) decoder and integrates third party services/apps, such as Netflix.
The application makes heavy use of firmware services (developed as a native C++/QT application) mainly to handle DRM and play video.
The TVApp is AndroidTV main system app: it is built and released with the operating system and cannot be replaced by the user.
Alten's team has worked in close contact with both Google's and Technicolor teams, helping to identify and troubleshoot integration issues between hardware, firmware and operating system, also through Android platform.
