VIAVI location intelligence enables us to harness key insights for a targeted, subscriber-centric approach to optimization, delivering the best possible customer experience. With the ability to optimize quality of experience for our most high-value subscribers, we can target network and service improvements to deliver maximum return with minimal investment.
VIAVI PERIGON, formerly known as NITRO Mobility, captures, locates, stores and analyzes data from all subscriber events, giving operators a rich source of app-aware insight to significantly improve network performance and enrich the QoE. This subscriber-centric, app-aware intelligence creates a true understanding of the customer experience enabling monetization of the network and delivering automated network optimization.
Taking Full Advantage
Given the inflection point of opportunity with complexity introduced with 5G and Open RAN (O-RAN) technology, mobile operators are now presented with enormous challenges to leverage the opportunities that these technologies present. Challenges such as continued exponential traffic growth, flat or declining revenues, extreme competition, while facing massive RAN investments, increasing complexity along with the increasing scarcity of talent and skills required to take full advantage of 5G. Enterprise customer SLAs are becoming more stringent, and the automation and cloud transformation required is presenting operators with needed yet massive organizational transformation. All of this while needing to keep customer happy and finding a way to differentiate in the marketplace.
Automation and Insight
Critical for the ability to manage complexity, transform to cloud with automation, and the need to differentiate is accurate and timely knowledge of the location of subscribers, what they are doing, and their devices (IoT included). Contextual information regarding subscribers and IoT devices enables intelligence regarding end user and device experience leading to a precise understanding as to how to best to optimize the network. This intelligence is also valuable for understanding where best to deploy new radios for coverage or throughput improvements, as well as giving operators critical insight for differentiation in the marketplace as well for the development of new revenue streams.
The 5G Dilemma
In response, VIAVI has evolved it's industry leading geolocation solution to meet these challenges directly. Operator's immediate need to automate typical RAN operations and engineering functions, to move to a cloud-based network while maintaining visibility, the need to reduce OPEX, the need to limit CAPEX given the massive investments in spectrum, new radios, disaggregation, cloud, etc., and the need for accurate intelligence to proactively optimize the network and to enable decision makers to create real operator differentiation are addressed in PERIGON - The Location Intelligence for Apt Decisions.
VIAVI is striving to be the standard of Location Intelligence reference and Apt, that is, enabling the best results for the purpose and outcome.

Geolocation Value: Performance and Where
- We seek to become the standard of reference for Location Intelligence that produces the best results
- The best results can only be achieved when you make the right decision in order to address a specific circumstance
- In other words, best results can only be achieved when the decisions that are made are best suited to the purpose and desired outcome
- The arrow in the graph indicate that Location intelligence has a set of characteristics that are critically important. Important because there is not just one type of operator decision. Our goal is to ensure that our Location Intelligence can cover all relevant use cases, from micro to macro in terms of scope, close to real-time in terms of timeliness, and with various degrees of known accuracy depending on the timeliness requirements
Expanding our capabilities with PERIGON
When it comes to pursuing this mission, we have already a strong foundation on which to build, based on competencies, experience, and capabilities that we as an organization have developed over decades in the Location Intelligence and RAN Assurance market. With PERIGON, we are broadening, deepening, and expanding our capabilities to immediately address the operator 5G dilemma head on, to assure mobile operator success with taking advantage of the opportunity at hand that 5G and future Intelligent RAN that O-RAN present.
Operators can unlock the power of Location Intelligence with PERIGON, which is built upon the VIAVI Network Integrated Test, Real-time analytics and Optimization (NITRO) cloud-native platform that enables cross-domain intelligence. For greater than two decades, VIAVI has been the leader in location intelligence solutions with more than 80 deployments globally and geolocating near to one billion subscribers and devices with industry leading accuracy.
