Nokia Networks Unveils SON Solution

Nokia-Networks-Unveils-SON-SolutionNokia Networks has unveiled SON (Self Organizing Networks) based on both Eden Rock’s Eden-NET and Nokia Networks iSON Manager.

Nokia Eden-NET combines the best SON functionality from the now-completed Eden Rock acquisition and Nokia Networks iSON Manager in one solution.

This initiative boosts Nokia Networks’ unwavering focus on providing the best-in-class multi-vendor SON capabilities. It also responds to operators’ need to simplify, improve agility and efficiency of rapidly changing networks operations.

Thanks to its unique open framework, the solution will allow operators to both customize and create new SON modules to remedy operator-specific pain points. Like no other solution before it, this will provide needed agility and boost industry-wide SON innovation.

With the successful integration of both portfolios, Nokia Networks has accelerated feature availability by some 6 to 12 months and provides the broadest portfolio of SON modules with superior proven algorithms. This is an important step towards its vision to enable self-aware networks for personalized experiences.

Ken Rehbehn, principal analyst, 451 Research said, “Mobile network operators must cope with dynamic network environments that tax traditional planning and optimization approaches. Open SON frameworks offer operators an important toolkit enabling agile responses to changing network patterns.”

Peter Patomella, vice president, CEM and OSS, Nokia Networks said, “We can now provide the best SON capabilities and expertise to help operators run their fast-evolving networks. They can accelerate their operations automation with available, proven SON modules and can also create new ones to address specific needs.”
