ISRAEL: Allot Communications Ltd announced that its Feb 2013 Allot MobileTrends Report shows how subscriber traffic analysis can be used by operators to segment and create innovative service packages for different groups of data subscribers according to their digital lifestyle.
Each segment is defined by parameters that include online activity, daily usage patterns, content consumed and the overall effect their activity has on the network. The statistical information contained within the Feb 2013 MobileTrends Report was aggregated from several participating mobile operators around the globe and the data collected was entirely subscriber-anonymous.
The report highlights the value of understanding individual digital lifestyles from the network operator perspective.
