Cellwize sees growing demand for multi-technology SON as mobile operators look to deploy IoT infrastructure

Singapore May 15, 2014 - Cellwize, the innovative Self-Optimizing Network (SON) solutions provider announced today that an increasing number of mobile operators are looking to deploy cross-technology and multi-vendor Self-Optimizing Network (SON) solutions to boost 2G, 3G and LTE networks. One reason for this is that with the drive towards creating the infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT), optimizing the sometimes-forgotten 2G network is back on top of operators' agendas.

"At the moment, there's a definite focus on 3G and 4G technologies, yet 2G's role is sometimes overlooked," said Ofir Zemer, CEO of Cellwize. "Fact is, it is still the trusted workhorse for so many operators and 2G does provide ubiquitous coverage. That's why most IoT and M2M devices currently use 2G - it is the most efficient form of a connection. The good news is that operators are looking to the future too. We've observed increasing interest for holistic SON solutions that support 2G, 3G and LTE. A SON solution needs to meet the demands of today's network and be future proof to meet tomorrow's needs."

Cellwize's observations are in line with a recent report from Machina Research. M2M is currently dominated by 2G and Machina Research predicts that by 2022, 3G and LTE will account for almost 90% of connections. Currently, since the transition from 2G to 3G for IoT is slow, operators need to ensure their IoT Service Level Agreements (SLA) are guaranteed through the implementation of a SON solution that supports the optimisation of multiple technologies.

Cellwize's centralized SON (C-SON) solutions have proven popular amongst operators as it can deliver outstanding coverage for 2G and works seamlessly to deliver 3G and LTE. elastic-SON™ is able to make the most out of the entire network by providing mobility, robustness and retainability. It can deliver 25 percent more capacity, 30 percent increase in data throughput and 10 percent more coverage.

Cellwize was founded by Radio Frequency (RF) engineers who mastered network topology and network behaviour. The innovative market proven elastic-SON™ establishes the building blocks to support customer-centric use cases with its Value Driven-SON™, which uses Big Data insight to self-adapt the network to meet customer needs in real time. Cellwize SON solutions are very fast; able to access, analyse and moderate 40,000 sectors in 47 sec from data collection to SON recommendation using 1 non-unique server.
