*Per data collected Feb, 2017
Number of Mobile App Sessions Impacted By Network Disconnection (%)
This metric shows the average disconnections experienced by end users using mobile apps over cellular and WiFi networks. Disconnections are highly disruptive to the end user experience and are caused by many factors such as driving through a tunnel, moving to a different network type etc. This data is proprietary and is captured using PacketZoom technology specifically designed to rescue broken sessions due to network discontinuities.
Amount of Packet Loss Experienced On Mobile Apps (%)
Average packet loss experienced during a session by end users using mobile apps over cellular and WiFi networks. Only sessions that have a minimum of 10 transfers are counted. This data is captured from mobile apps on a transfer or session basis using the PacketZoom transport engine, part of the PacketZoom technology stack. Such precise measurements of packet loss are not available from most kernel TCP stacks.
* Data for mainland China is as seen by PacketZoom locations across our Asian locations.
Number of Mobile App Sessions With Failed Transfers (%)
Average transfer failures experienced by end users on mobile apps over cellular and WiFi networks using HTTP. Note: there are multiple transfers in each mobile app session. This data is proprietary and captured using PacketZoom RUM from the client side. Use of the PacketZoom technology drastically reduces failure rates for most apps.
Weighted Average Response Time For Mobile Apps (ms)
Weighted average of round-trip-times across all network types as experienced by mobile end users over cellular and WiFi networks.
Average Time For Mobile App Transfers (ms per kB)
Average time to transfer one kB of data using the HTTP stack as experienced by end users using mobile apps over cellular and WiFi networks.
