The Pearson correlation coefficient is a statistical measure used to determine the relationship between two variables or values in a dataset. In the context of ABID+, the Pearson correlation method is employed to analyze the correlation between different KPIs or performance metrics within the network.
The Pearson correlation coefficient, denoted as "r," is calculated using the following formula:
r = (Σ((xi - x̄)(yi - ȳ))) / (sqrt(Σ(xi - x̄)²) * sqrt(Σ(yi - ȳ)²))
- Σ denotes the sum of the values
- xi and yi represent individual data points from the two variables
- x̄ and ȳ are the means of the two variables
The resulting value of r ranges from -1 to +1. A value of +1 indicates a perfect positive correlation, meaning that as one variable increases, the other variable also increases proportionally. A value of -1 represents a perfect negative correlation, where as one variable increases, the other variable decreases proportionally. A value of 0 indicates no correlation or a random relationship between the variables.
In the case of ABID+, the Pearson correlation is utilized to understand the relationship between two KPIs or performance metrics. By calculating the correlation coefficient using the formula mentioned above, ABID+ can determine if there is a strong positive or negative correlation between the variables. This information is valuable for identifying patterns, dependencies, or causal relationships between different aspects of network performance.
For example, let's consider two KPIs: network traffic volume and latency. By calculating the Pearson correlation coefficient between these two variables, ABID+ can reveal whether there is a correlation
between high traffic volume and increased latency. If the correlation coefficient is positive and close to +1, it suggests that as the network traffic volume increases, the latency also tends to increase. This information can help operators identify potential bottlenecks orcongestion issues in the network.
By leveraging the power of the Pearson correlation method, ABID+ enables operators to gain insights into the interdependencies and relationships between various KPIs within the network. This information can assist in troubleshooting, performance optimization, and proactive decision-making to ensure optimal network performance and enhance the overall user experience.

Grouping Highly Correlated Values:
Based on the provided data, the Pearson correlation analysis can be conducted to examine the relationships between the different KPIs. The results are shown in the table below:
Packet Loss Rate
Packet Loss Rate
*Significant at the 0.05 level (2-tailed).
The Pearson correlation coefficients show a strong negative correlation between RAN availability and packet loss rate (-0.76), indicating that improving RAN availability can also improve the packet loss rate. This suggests that when the RAN availability increases, the packet loss rate tends to decrease.
The analysis also reveals a positive correlation between packet loss rate and latency (0.63*), suggesting that reducing the packet loss rate can lead to improved latency. In other words, as the packet loss rate decreases, the latency is expected to improve.
However, there is a weak negative correlation between RAN availability and latency (-0.43), indicating that improving RAN availability may have a limited impact on latency. This means that while an increase in RAN availability may have some positive effect on reducing latency, it is not the sole determining factor.
By grouping highly correlated values together, operators can gain insights into the dependencies and relationships between different KPIs. In this case, the strong negative correlation between RAN availability and packet loss rate suggests that focusing on improving RAN availability can have a direct impact on reducing packet loss. Similarly, the positive correlation between packet loss rate and latency highlights the importance of addressing packet loss to improve latency.
These findings from the correlation analysis can assist network operators in making informed performance optimization decisions and prioritizing areas for improvement. By understanding the interplay between different KPIs, operators can focus their efforts on the most influential factors and work towards enhancing the overall network performance.
