TRA is seeking to purchase a Mobile Audit package covering the testing of Voice and Data Services for an audit period spread over 2 consecutive years. The selected firm will perform an audit on a defined minimum set of KPIs for the three mobile operators, of which the result will be made available to the public. The public report will include quality of service audit on Voice, SMS/MMS, Data Transfer, Web Browsing and Billing.
Commenting on issuing this request for proposal, TRA’s Technical and Operations Director, Mr. Mohammed Mahmood, said, “TRA is looking at the most appropriate test methodology to ensure that the audits are reliable, fair and non discriminatory between the measured Mobile Operators and that the results can be understood easily by consumers and empower them to make informed choice based on quantitative and qualitative data.”
The audit will be performed over different geographical situations such as drive test in main roads and motorway, walk test in outdoor in the main cities, and indoor test in buildings, shops, airport, universities and shopping malls. The test will be done during the day with focus during peak hours.
The Mobile Quality of Service Audit Request for Proposal can be found on TRA website at www.tra.org.bh. The deadline for submitting proposal is 4:00 pm (GMT +3) on 5 August 2010.
