Summary:
Even though, the current cellular network provides the user with a wide array of services, for a typical user voice communication is still the primary usage. It has become increasingly important for a cellular network provider to provide the customers with the clearest possible end-to-end speech during a call. However, this perceptually motivated QoS is hard to measure. While the main goal of this research has been on the modeling of the perceptual audio quality, this thesis focuses on the discovery of procedures for collecting audio and diagnostic data, the evaluation of the captured audio, and the mapping and visualization of the diagnostic and audio related data. The correct application of these modified procedures should increase the productivity of the drive test team as well as provides a platform for the accurate assessment of the data collected.
