BARCELONA, Spain & HERNDON, Va. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Celcite Management Solutions (www.celcite.com), the world’s leading provider of SON and network management solutions for the wireless industry, has announced that it is already deploying its COPS-SON™ automated platform in a multi-vendor environment across several mobile network markets covering almost 20,000 Node Bs.
“COPS-SON was launched in the fourth quarter of 2012, and it is proving to be the solution that mobile network operators had been waiting for,” said Ajay Khanna, CTO and Senior Vice President of Engineering at Celcite. “As networks become more complex and multi-dimensional, operators are recognising that automation is the only way to manage them efficiently. The COPS multi-technology platform rapidly captures all the necessary data to manage SON, and then applies a range of proven SON techniques to provide the operators with the efficiency improvements they require.”
3G infrastructure vendors who will be supported across the current deployments include Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), and Huawei.
COPS-SON is an intelligent and dynamic closed-loop system for self-organising networks (SON). COPS-SON is designed to continuously configure, optimise and self-heal mobile networks, ensuring that radio performance always remains at the optimum level and that the best possible end-user experience is achieved. It uses network-proven optimisation techniques to provide the most efficient and cost-effective self-optimising solution available to operators today.
More about COPS-SON
COPS-SON utilises and improves upon a range of SON techniques that are proven to work in real network performance improvement projects. These include new and more robust Automatic Neighbour Relations (ANR), Load Balancing (LB), and Self-Healing (SH) algorithms, which have been shown to yield major improvements in KPIs. These algorithms ensure that COPS SON is the most advanced and cost-effective SON solution available today.
COPS-SON utilises smart Extraction, Transformation, and Load (ETL) engines to ensure that new raw data can be captured in a matter of minutes, provided that it is ready at the remote location. These ETL engines, combined with a fast algorithm and executor, ensure that necessary changes are implemented within 15 – 30 minutes of any event. Individual COPS-SON solutions are designed in co-operation with customers’ radio optimisation experts to meet their specific needs and expectations, and to maximise the improvement benefits they experience.
