Philippine's leading mobile operator, Globe Telecom, today announced that it is the first operator in the world to deploy Huawei’s SingleSON (self-organizing network) solution to optimize its wireless network performance, operation and maintenance (O&M) for a better customer experince. The solution enables Globe to manage the explosive growth and development of mobile data services traffic, which is foreseen to continue into the next decade.
The operator which recently tested the solution live on its 20,000 2G, 3G and 4G cell sites, plans to deploy the SingleSON solution nationwide by end of this year. Globe claims that the performance of the solution achieved remarkable results and exceeded expectations with immediate improvement on both drop call rates as well as users’ throughput.
