LONDON, ENGLAND & SINGAPORE: Cellwize announced that its elastic-SON, the Centralized Self Organizing Network solution (C-SON) has been commercially deployed by Telefónica UK to enhance mobile network performance and Quality of Service for UK subscribers. elastic-SON from Cellwize was selected following a rigorous evaluation process carried out by the Telefónica Global CTO Team and Telefónica UK.
Telefónica UK is the first to implement the C-SON solution in the Telefónica Group globally and effectively the first company in the UK to implement a SON solution across all three technologies (2G, 3G and 4G).
Since 2012 Telefónica UK has been working with Vodafone to share their basic network infrastructure to create a single network grid in the UK that runs two competing nationwide mobile networks. This advanced network requires a robust SON solution that’s capable of working across different technologies with equipment from multiple-vendors – and effectively manage the transition between old and new solutions.
As one of the industry’s most intelligent SON solutions, Cellwize elastic-SON meets this criteria having already proven SON implementations operating on Ericsson, Nokia and Huawei networks.
Cellwize’s SON solution played two key roles during the network modernization process. Telefónica UK’s network performance was optimized to work between legacy and modern RAN infrastructure to enhance network reliability and Quality of Service. To support the migration of equipment, elastic-SON connected seamlessly with multi-vendor technology enabling new solutions to come online rapidly.
