Tropper Technologies is pleased to deliver a crowd sourcing portal called CrowdPower.
Whereas Tropper Technologies' engineering tools are technology focused, CrowdPower is consumer-centric.
Here you will find simple to use, opt-in, mobile clients that run on popular smartphones. These mobile clients automatically collect and push coverage related data to our CrowdPower on-line database.
Crowd sourcing is a very powerful means for the network provider as well as the consumer to understand exactly what performance is being delivered to the end user under real world conditions.
Some alternative systems rely on the user of the smartphone to click a button on the device when the perceived quality of service is poor. This measurement technique has a number of deficiencies, not the least of which is the very high likelyhood of pronounced negative bias (for example, end users will rarely take the time to report a happy experience).
Tropper Technologies CrowdPower architecture has no such bias. End user performance related metrics are pushed to our on-line database as the device sees them. This creates a high fidelity measure of network performance from the end user perspective, under true mobility, traffic and propagation conditions.
