QUALITA - Customer-centric Measurement of End to End Quality
 In the last few years as mobile markets have matured and the costs of sourcing new subscribers have risen sharply, mobile  operators have shifted focus from new acquisitions to retention of existing subscribers and preventing churn. Controlling quality  across the network is considered as a critical advantage in this regard as it enables mobile operators to differentiate and deliver  optimum services within a competitive market.
  The mobile operator benefits by introducing the concept of 'QoS (Quality of Service) Management' as users and services can  be monitored and optimized leading to retention of high value users. In addition to this, QoS enables best use of network  resources as required by the service and as subscribed by the user. The ability to offer a guaranteed high QoS also enables  operators to differentiate themselves from other competitors by creating service packages suited to user requirements.  Complexity of measuring QoS has increased in packet based mobile networks (GPRS,3G) because of integration of mobile  networks with IP networks. In order to offer guaranteed QoS against the 'best effort' QoS as offered by Internet, quality  parameters like delay, packet Loss, throughput etc. must to be continuously monitored per service type to meet the customer's  expectations.
 Quality of Experience (QoE) is also an important concept for understanding the exact experience of a customer when using the  services of a network. From an end-user's perspective, quality is generally understood as availability and accessibility of service,  speed and clarity of communication. These attributes are extremely important to measure in order to understand a customer's  Quality of Experience (QoE).
