Crowdsource

Crowdsource uses a modular system, which makes it possible for us to launch performance apps very quickly:

  1. Choose from a selection of tests and modules.
  2. Send us your logo, brand colours, and up to three website URLs.
  3. We build and maintain the app for you.
  4. The app is ready to review within a day.

Supported agents:

iOS, Android

Neutral and fair mobile measurements

Give consumers and reliable way to measure their fixed and cellular broadband performance in a handy app.

Understand national cellular performance

Crowdsource is designed to provider government regulators with a tool to collect huge amounts of nationwide data.

Tests

The Crowdsource platform currently supports Download, Upload, Latency (includes Jitter and Packet loss), Web browsing, and YouTube streaming measurements.

We’ve designed Crowdsource using a modular framework that lets you choose the features you need and customise the look and feel without building a new application from scratch.

Audit

SamKnows has been working with government agencies, and their enforcement officers from around the world, to develop a cell phone app for drive-testing to identify locations that lack cellular network coverage. This app can be given to people on the ground quickly, and the data can be used to direct repair efforts, helping to bring people back online and save lives. This same solution is being used to audit the coverage maps published by mobile operators to ensure they are correct.

Supported agents:

Android

Continuous testing

The app runs continuous download, upload, and/or latency tests.

Quick and easy to deploy

Audit is easy to deploy and allows people to travel around target areas collecting accurate data.

Environmental data

Key data points like signal strength, bearer, cell tower identifier (amongst others) allow engineers to identify problem areas.

Visualise in SamKnows One

All of the data collected by Audit is ingested into our analytics platform to see where connectivity is available and use its analytical features to uncover valuable insights.

Audit runs on any Android smartphone.

Visualising cellular data

SamKnows One ingests and stores all the data collected by either the crowdsource app, Audit app, or your own app using our mobile SDK.

Mapping

Charting your cellular data on a map is a powerful way to understand regional variations and cellular coverage.

Analytics

Visualise your cellular data with the same analytic tools you use for fixed broadband data.

Reporting

Create and publish cellular performance reports with SamKnows One

You can plot aggregated data on maps to visualise performance on the regional level, or plot raw individual test data to see granular detail in specific areas.
