Singapore– June 3, 2014 – Cellwize, the innovative Self-Organizing Network (SON) solutions provider, today announced that it is the first to offer a Network Functions Virtualized (NFV)-ready SON solution, that’s multi-technology and fully multi-vendor compliant. Mobile operators will now benefit from a powerful Centralized SON (C-SON) solution that self-optimizes 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE and supports the virtualization of network functions to drive network efficiency.
Cellwize achieved the first step towards NFV by virtualizing its SON and application servers, delivering its optimization through virtual machines in NFV environments. As a result, elastic-SON™ can be fully automated with other network functions in the cloud, making it the first such SON solution on the market.
elastic-SON is also flexible and based on the demand and size of the network, can efficiently increase or reduce its performance capabilities. This allows mobile operators to adopt a “pay-as-you-grow” roll out so they can tailor the optimization and performance to fit the network’s requirements. elastic-SON™ also makes the healing of under performing networks seamless for cloud managers. They can now increase the number of virtual machines within a matter of a few clicks to strengthen performance.
Cellwize SON solutions are multi-vendor compatible. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) can integrate elastic-SON™ to offer a robust, vendor agnostic NFV solution that makes data acquisition and closed-loop provision much more effective.
“Innovation is close to our hearts and our clients can rely on us to provide them future proof technology,” said Ofir Zemer, CEO of Cellwize. “NFV has been a key development for 2014 and it makes sense for centralized-SON to be in the cloud. As operators move their networks into a virtualized environment, it is vital that the RAN section can be managed by a robust virtual SON solution.”
