For all information related to the coverage of your services, the country information is of course extremely important. All MNOs have one organisation country that is not necessarily related to the network coverage. Also a TADIG code always has one country code included, which is not precise enough as well, because a TADIG code can be used for more than one country. Just imagine some small countries or a network of islands, where your own coverage can be different from area to area.
To solve this problem, we have introduced covered areas for a while, which allow you to add multiple covered areas to one organisation. But with network mergers and political changes being a reality, even this doesn’t cover all possible use cases. We have decided to include another layer of covered areas that can now be added to single TADIG codes, and that can be used for example for the powerful country coverage report in our Networks module. This may sound a bit abstract, so let’s take a look at a concrete example to clarify the different results of the now four options:
As you can see, all four usable options show different results. With the newly introduced option #4, you now have all the flexibility you need to get realistic coverage reports for all scenarios. In addition to the reports, the covered areas for TADIG codes can now also be displayed in a separate column in your connections overview and can be used for the “World Map” and “Country Coverage” Dashboard gadgets, too.
