In this project, I developed R scripts to create dynamic maps that visualize network traffic for a large telecommunications company. The initiative aimed at identifying redundancies to streamline network planning and capacity management.

Problem statement

The company faced challenges in managing network capacity efficiently due to a lack of clear visual data representation. This led to suboptimal decision-making in network traffic management, impacting service quality and system reliability.


  1. To enhance the visibility of network traffic across various nodes.
  2. To identify and reduce redundancies in network traffic flow.
  3. To optimize network planning and capacity management processes.
  4. To accelerate the decision-making process for network adjustments.

Approach and Implementation

  • Developed algorithms using R to map source and destination nodes of network traffic.
  • Visualized traffic flow, highlighting areas of congestion and underutilization.
  • Implemented a color-coded system to differentiate between varying traffic levels.
  • Created an interactive map interface for real-time traffic monitoring.
  • Applied the tool to simulate potential changes and predict network performance.

Challenges and Solutions

  • Difficulty in translating complex network data into a user-friendly format was resolved by designing intuitive visualization templates.
  • Overcoming initial resistance to new tools by conducting hands-on workshops to demonstrate the system’s effectiveness.


  • Achieved a 25% reduction in network redundancies through targeted adjustments.

  • Increased the speed of decision-making by 40% with the new visualization system.

  • Improved overall network efficiency, evidenced by a 15% increase in traffic throughput.

Key Learnings

  • The power of visual data representation in simplifying complex network management tasks.

  • The importance of user-friendly tools for facilitating organizational change and adoption.

  • Future projects will benefit from integrating feedback loops for continuous tool refinement.
