AirHop, a Self-Organizing Network (SON) vendor and Mavenir have signed an agreement for the development and supply of an integrated SON solution combining the state-of-the art cloud systems.

With the advent of network densification and 5G, mobile network operators (MNOs) need practical solutions for deploying more convenient network locations for baseband processing to meet these challenging and diverse requirements.

Mavenir’s flexible radio access network (RAN) is the cornerstone of next generation mobile network infrastructure. Mavenir’s evolved RAN architecture is designed with cloud native virtualization techniques enabling the RAN to flex and adapt based on usage and coverage.

MNOs also need practical solutions to automate network deployment and optimize network performance across diverse HetNet environments. AirHop’s flagship eSON is a flexible virtualized system that is always responsive, resilient, and elastic to the network deployment. eSON dynamically characterizes the radio environment and provides multi-cell coordinated network optimization in real time along with traditional non-real-time parameter optimization for unmatched spectral efficiency gains in dense deployments and improved quality-of-experience (QoE) for data speed, mobility and network access.

Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO, Mavenir
AirHop’s commercially proven real-time virtualized SON software is a great complement to Mavenir’s Cloud RAN, delivering increased business agility with network elasticity, flexibility, and dynamic RAN optimization.

Yan Hui, CEO of AirHop 
Leveraging Mavenir’s comprehensive portfolio of fully virtualized VNFs, the collaboration meets MNO needs for both centralizing the radio access through virtualization to reduce CAPEX/OPEX, and for satisfying the performance and QoE requirements for pre-5G & 5G use cases by extending the optimized RAN to the edge of the network.
