Network and subscriber intelligence firm, Astellia announced that its Nova RAN 3.0 is now available as a fully virtualized RAN optimization solution, supporting multi-technology and multi-vendor networks.
The customer-centric solution embeds massive geolocation, reducing the need for drive tests by 90%, claims Astellia. With that, radio engineers can obtain multi-point geolocated positioning every second for every subscriber and better understand issues they experience. This geolocated information can be injected in operators’ big data lake to enrich customer experience analysis and can be leveraged by marketing for geo-fencing, geo-marketing etc. to create new revenue streams, said the company.
Astellia claims that this future-proof optimization solution enables a 60% OPEX reduction through the automation of frequent and time-consuming tasks such as detecting overshooting cells, PSC/PCI clashes and incorrect settings of neighbour lists. The proprietary algorithms enable self-configuration of newly deployed sites or technological features to minimize human intervention and reduce operational costs.
