Radisys Corporation, AirHop Communications and Broadcom Corporation have unveiled an integrated Self-Organizing Network (SON) solution for LTE and LTE-Advanced small cell networks that allows mobile operators to quickly deploy interference management functionality across a broad customer base.  The integrated and pre-verified solution that consists of AirHop’s eSON™ software, Radisys’ Trillium® LTE TOTALeNodeB™ solution and Broadcom Corporation’s BCM617xx Series small cell silicon provides mobile operators with a time-to-market advantage.

According to a statement by Radisys, trial deployments of the integrated SON solution are underway with leading mobile operators.

Radisys emphasized that the distributed SON solution enables reduced OPEX via automatic discovery, self-configuration and other OSS level SON functions and Improved user experiences.

"Our award-winning eSON software delivers a full range of SON capabilities to LTE small cell eNodeBs, allowing operators to manage interference and optimize capacity in their HetNet deployments. Our collaboration with market leaders Radisys and Broadcom provides mobile operators with a true third-party end-to-end SON solution and access to Radisys’ broad customer base.”

- Yan Hui, CEO, Airhop Communications

“Our partnership with AirHop comes at the right time as mobile operators increasingly opt for a third-party SON solution to enable their small cell deployments. By integrating our TOTALeNodeB small cell software with AirHop’s eSON software and Broadcom silicon, we’re enabling operators to broadly deploy various types of small cells, from residential to urban, at an accelerated pace. We’re excited to see trial deployments already underway.”
