Cellwize today announced that its elastic-SON™, the Centralized Self Organizing Network solution (C-SON) has been commercially deployed by Telefónica UK in a multi-vendor network enviroment to enhance mobile network performance and Quality of Service for UK subscribers. 

According to Cellwize, its 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), said Cellwize.

Cellwize added that its SON solution helped Telefónica UK’s network modernization process - optimizing its network performance to work between legacy and modern RAN infrastructure to enhance network reliability and Quality of Service (QoS).

We chose Cellwize due to its ability to work with all Telefónica UK incumbent RAN vendors and technologies. Cellwize was successful in improving customer experience during such a complex RAN-sharing network swap project. We were impressed by the speed and efficiency in which Cellwize has come online to actively support the transition.  The SON solution reduced the complexity and Time-To-Market of new site-setup as well as the overall swap, which was deployed with expertise and efficiency. Our team is working closely with Cellwize to support additional business needs for special events which require enhanced coverage and capacity. Recently the Cellwize elastic-SON platform was supporting Notting Hill Carnival and the Ryder Cup 2014 event.

Telefónica UK’s landmark network modernisation project will see all its subscribers receive the best service possible, across all technologies. elastic-SON plays a central role streamlining the process to ensure that the modernisation project is completed smoothly. As an independent SON solutions provider, we place an emphasis on solutions that work seamlessly with all technologies and vendors.
