Ericsson Deploys SON Optimization Manager in Singapore
Published on: 16th Dec 2013
Ericsson today announced the deployment of its SON Optimization Manager for SingTel's WCDMA networks.
With this system, SingTel and Ericsson optimized multiple network elements and domains, allowing the integration of multiple technologies 2G, 3G and 4G into a single optimization model.
Nicholas Seow, President and Country Manager of Ericsson Singapore, said: "Self-organizing networks are a critical enabler for the widespread deployment of mobile broadband technologies. Network complexity has reached the stage at which self-configuring, self-optimizing and self-healing functions are now indispensable for running a modern mobile network. Multiple standards and an expanding ecosystem of equipment providers need the automation of as much network planning, design, build and optimization as possible."
SingTel announced last week that it would be deploying SON for its network upgrades.
