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.
