Tier 1 Russian mobile operator, Megafon has selected CellMining Behavior-Based SON (Self-Organizing Networks) solution to optimize its network performance in the Moscow region to provide superior Quality of Experience.

CellMining is also providing MegaFon with the unique ability to detect low quality calls on 2G and 3G as well as on the VoLTE service it is currently launching.

The decision to place the SON contract with CellMining was taken after an extremely rigorous and lengthy selection process during which products from several leading SON vendors-including network infrastructure vendors-were trialed on the operator's network, said CellMining. 

CellMining's multi-vendor, multi-technology SON capability was a key deciding factor in its selection. Another important consideration was that it provides subscriber-aware energy-saving modules-these deliver a safe way of reducing operating costs by selectively shutting down radio power when traffic levels are low, without risking any degradation in the subscriber experience, added the company.

Greg Giora Snipper, CEO of CellMining
With millions of subscribers across its 2G, 3G and 4G networks in Moscow, MegaFon has decided that CellMining offers the industry's best SON solution, which can be flexibly deployed to deliver the excellent user experience its customers demand.

Alexey Semenov, Director of the Stolichny Branch PJSC MegaFon
I am confident that this technology will help us to provide 24/7 quality management on the scale of the entire network. It means that we will be able to instantaneously react to unexpected network fluctuations, and continuously provide the best voice and data services to our clients.
