Cellwize, the innovative Self-Optimizing Network (SON) solutions provider reports that an increasing number of mobile operators are looking to deploy cross-technology and multi-vendor Self-Optimizing Network (SON) solutions to boost 2G, 3G and LTE networks. One reason for this is that with the drive towards creating the infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT), optimizing the sometimes-forgotten 2G network is back on top of operators’ agendas.
Cellwize’s observations are in line with a recent report from Machina Research, which predicts that by 2022, 3G and LTE will account for almost 90% of connections. However, given the slow transition from 2G to 3G for IoT, operators need to put in place multi-technology SON solution that can ensure their IoT Service Level Agreements (SLA) are guaranteed.
Cellwize said that its centralized SON (C-SON) solutions are proven popular amongst operators as it can deliver outstanding coverage for 2G and works seamlessly to deliver 3G and LTE. Its elastic-SON™ is able to make the most out of the entire network by providing mobility, robustness and retainability, delivering 25 percent more capacity, 30 percent increase in data throughput and 10 percent more coverage.
