Crowdsource uses a modular system, which makes it possible for us to launch performance apps very quickly:
Give consumers and reliable way to measure their fixed and cellular broadband performance in a handy app.
Crowdsource is designed to provider government regulators with a tool to collect huge amounts of nationwide data.
The Crowdsource platform currently supports Download, Upload, Latency (includes Jitter and Packet loss), Web browsing, and YouTube streaming measurements.
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.
The app runs continuous download, upload, and/or latency tests.
Audit is easy to deploy and allows people to travel around target areas collecting accurate data.
Key data points like signal strength, bearer, cell tower identifier (amongst others) allow engineers to identify problem areas.
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.
SamKnows One ingests and stores all the data collected by either the crowdsource app, Audit app, or your own app using our mobile SDK.
Charting your cellular data on a map is a powerful way to understand regional variations and cellular coverage.
Visualise your cellular data with the same analytic tools you use for fixed broadband data.
