CSPs should plan a transition of their NPO processes towards SON in tandem with their network evolution towards HetNets and their own internal data transformations.
Automation of network planning and optimisation (NPO) processes and self-organised network (SON) deployments bring several business benefits to communications service providers (CSPs), and will be an essential prerequisite for operating efficient heterogeneous networks (HetNets). CSP mobile networks and services are becoming more complex, requiring advanced optimisation techniques. This report discusses network equipment providers' (NEPs)' SON solutions and the transition path that CSPs should follow to enable increased levels of automation for HetNets.
This report includes profiles of the following vendors.
