Cellwize Virtualizes Its SON Platform
SINGAPORE -- Cellwize, the innovative Self-Optimizing 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-organizes 2G, 3G and 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” rollout so they can tailor the optimization and performance to fit the network’s requirements. elastic-SON also makes the healing of underperforming networks seamless for cloud managers. They can now increase the number of virtual machines within a matter of a few clicks to strengthen performance.
