New Benchmarking Framework 2021

Today we have released our new mobile benchmarking framework 2021

Aachen, 2021/05/03 - We at umlaut are proud to announce the 2021 annual release of our mobile benchmarking framework, following close alignment with the industry in the Americas, EMEA and APAC regions.

This year’s update addresses innovation through the introduction of 5G in even more markets around the world. Our framework evolves with the customer requirements for video and multimedia, adding more advanced test cases, but at the same time keeps a close look at reliability and baseline performance.

Further, our yearly update brings significant upgrades of our crowd sourcing framework, adding the evaluation of voice call quality, and the capability to perform active speed testing. And besides onboarding the steadily growing crowd of 5G mobile broadband users into our general mobile broadband score, we are also offering a 5G centric evaluation of crowdsourced quality.

Hakan Ekmen, CEO Telecommunication at umlaut: “I´m very happy and proud that we have released our new benchmarking framework in these challenging COVID-19 times. The new 2021 framework is a major milestone in the history of umlaut and the entire telecommunications industry with regards to 5G. I am looking forward to the upcoming benchmarking season."

The technical documentation is available to our partners and customers under NDA. For further information, please send an E-Mail to or download the abstract document below.
