Reverb Networks, this week announced that it has completed a pilot project of the InteliSON Self-Optimizing Network (SON) system in a major Brazilian operator's commercial network without requiring network freeze. The leading provider of SON said that the demonstration shows strong improvements in network performance and monetization.

Reverb said that it was able to successfully optimize a heavily-loaded 3G radio access network with a large percentage of cells reaching 90%+ loading, for up to 12 hours per day. The Reverb SON system dynamically discovered and adapted to changes in underlying network configuration supplied by other processes without requiring any manual intervention.

According to Reverb Networks, the unique streaming performance analytics built into Reverb Networks InteliSON provided explicit indications about where the highly-loaded and congested cells were located. These detailed analytics allow mobile network operators to pinpoint precise geographical areas for network densification or capacity enhancements, added Reverb Networks. 

Zoran Kehler, Reverb Networks CEO
This is really a breakthrough. Most competing SON systems need a steady-state network environment to operate effectively. But Reverb is able to provide all the benefits of SON without enforcing artificial restrictions and disruptive freezes on the network. Reverb not only improved performance drastically, but managed this improvement while constantly adapting to network changes introduced through other engineering processes, which is a highly desirable capability for a real-world SON system – you can’t just stop optimizing or building out a network because an existing cell has been re-configured, re-homed, or a new cell has been added.
