ROCCO HQ London 24/10/16 Our research has been concluded, the results have been checked and verified and we are pleased to announce the Tier One Vendors in Roaming QoS Testing Solutions for 2016.
Congratulations to all four Tier One Vendors who performed so well across the 35+ performance and leadership KPIs! Tier One means that across all KPIs these providers reached 4-5 points out of 5. The Vendor ratings were very close this year, with more promotion of this Research happening within the industry, this helped a lot to get the MNOs views across to us.
Also our Roaming QoS Testing Solutions Market Intelligence Report 2016 which we also publish today allowed us to know better the topics most important to MNOs and Vendors and really helped us to build a strong intelligence on this topic. There are some really amazing solutions out there.
Between March and September 2016 we asked MNOs globally to give us their perceptions of Roaming QoS testing Vendors, how well they knew them and how they would rate them. They rated Vendors on 40+ KPIs in the area of Performance and Leadership. The survey was about brand perception, experience of these providers as well as an understanding of whether MNOs would choose them over others.
With 13 Vendors there was tough competition. We started with around 10 Vendors but when MNOs wanted to include other Vendors we immediately updated the survey to include them, inviting all MNOs to comment.
MNOs who participated in the Research will receive their free Executive Summary Report shortly, thanks for your support and feedback, we hope you enjoy the data and insights into the Vendors.
MNOs can take part in other research and receive similar free Executive Summary reports from ROCCO

in Q2, Q3 2016 we asked Vendors globally to tell us about their Roaming QoS testing solutions, what they did and how they performed. We asked over 60 tough and often radical questions to help us to define each solution and be able to compare them side by side, like an MNO might do in an RFQ.
7 Vendors took our interview and shared with their insights on the tools but also on the vision of Roaming Quality Testing in the future. Its fascinating to see the differences in approach and also the diversity of the solutions.
Vendors who participated in this research will shortly receive the Executive Summary of the report.
ROCCO is a company who chose to be neutral
In the 4 years we have been providing ROCCO Research we have acquired the participation of 500+ Operators and over 50 different Vendors to our research. We think this is because of the trust we have developed with our networks and long lasting relationships with the industry. We provide something for free to those companies that take part in this research, for sharing with us their views and they have many thoughts to share!
It must be said it is not ROCCO how chooses the Vendors or has any influence over the results. What we do, which we believe is more important, is to ask the questions and facilitate the findings this kind of research that lets MNOs and Vendors speak for themselves.
ROCCO doesn’t partner with any vendor in our Vendor Performance research or ask other companies to sponsor our research because we think this effects the neutrality of what we do and also prevents us from:
- Asking the questions MNOs really want us to ask
- Altering what we want to present, a true industry picture of what MNOs think today
Since we sponsor our own research we sell our Strategic Analysis reports to cover our Research costs.
