MTS, the leading telecommunications provider in Russia and the CIS has partnered with Cisco to complete the first phase of Cisco's Self Optimizing Network (SON) solution deployment supporting MTS mobile networks. The SON solution allows MTS to automate network optimization in real time to improve the quality of voice and data services.

The technology has been successfully deployed for MTS' 3G network in Moscow city and the Moscow region. MTS will extend the SON deployment to the Moscow region LTE networks this year and will follow this up with optimization of its heterogeneous networks including small cells. 

According to Cisco, its SON solution automatically analyzes a network elements' load and performs proactive online adjustment of the network parameters, while dynamically adapting the network capacity in line with subscriber traffic profile changes. 

Andrei Ushatskiy, Vice President, Chief Technology and Information Officer, MTS
MTS is the first Russian operator to adopt and fully deploy a SON solution designed to dynamically optimize its networks. The solution significantly improves the network performance and directly impacts our subscribers' experience.  

Scott Morrison, Vice President, General Manager, Cisco SON
We are delighted that MTS has selected Cisco SON to optimize its network. We believe that our relationship will continue to support this development, and help ensure the MTS customers get best quality of service.
