Self-Organizing Network Accelerates LTE Deployment
Motorola Inc. has launched an advanced, self-organizing network (SON) that has been designed to help operators reduce the operational expenses from day one of the deployment of their Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network. This 3GPP Release 8 standards-compliant solution includes an improved architecture and leading algorithms that go beyond the specifications in the standards, according to the company.
The SON cuts operational expenses by automating previously manual steps involved in planning, deploying, optimizing, and operating the network, lowering the need for new operation and management resources typically required to manage an additional network technology (2G, 3G, plus LTE). Its advanced algorithms and features also will help operators dynamically optimize their networks for best performance, making them simpler and easier to manage.
Included in the recently released WBR 500 basestation infrastructure, the SON deploys quickly with no specialized technician expertise. It automatically discovers its neighbors, reconfigures around network failures, and optimizes its radio parameters. In addition, it automatically configures backhaul and interconnect. Quality of service (QoS) should be self-established and autonomously optimized as well.
