LTE networks self-organize

Nokia Siemens Networks takes human error, cost out of LTE with Self Organizing Networks

(PresseBox) (Singapore / Espoo, Finland, ) Operators can now automate LTE network setup and operations. Nokia Siemens Networks has today launched its SON (Self Organizing Networks) offering for LTE at CommunicAsia 2010 in Singapore. The offering is part of the Nokia Siemens Networks SON suite*. SON bypasses timeconsuming manual processes in network operations to improve operational efficiency and helps operators introduce new technologies and expand networks faster than before**.

"LTE is the future of mobile network technology. We understand the strong potential it holds in redefining connectivity and revolutionizing information exchange between users across the world while on the go," said Thorsten Robrecht, head of LTE product management, Nokia Siemens Networks. "In keeping with our commitment to fuel the growth of LTE, our LTE functionality as part of the SON suite complements an already strong portfolio, enabling operators to costefficiently improve network quality for delivering seamless and fast connections."

The SON suite improves operational efficiency of existing networks by introducing automatic network configuration for handover processes, balancing mobile traffic load and minimizing the need for drive tests. In addition to this, with its compensative features, selfhealing minimizes network outage times for the endusers.

Nokia Siemens Networks' LTE SON offering is based on a hybrid concept of both centralized and localized SON mechanisms that provide operators with fast, reliable, accurate and scalable automation features. Operators will benefit from faster timetomarket with operations relieved from errorprone and timeconsuming manual processes.

First LTE features of the Nokia Siemens Networks SON suite, which also supports GSM and WCDMA networks, are already available in the market for commercial use.

SON introduces features to automate and optimize key mobile network functions.

*The Nokia Siemens Networks SON suite is a comprehensive hybrid offering that covers the operational scope of a centralized, distributed and localized self organizing network. The LTE offering as part of the SON suite comprises SON Plug and Play, which provides secure automated integration of base stations into the network, Automated Neighbor Relations (ANR) and the first phase of Self-Healing SON for LTE, to be complemented at a later stage by features like mobility robustness, load balancing, power saving and multitasking SON.

Nokia Siemens Networks plays a leading role in the 3GPP standardization forum in the area of SON. Another mark of the company's SON leadership is that today's LTE SON launch follows a launch of the 1st Plug and Play feature in September 2009.

For network wide, centrally managed SON, NetAct from Nokia Siemens Networks provides unified network management with integrated tools and applications for any vendor network. This oneplatform OSS (Operations Support Systems) solution results in fast connections and full visibility for all SON use cases throughout the networks. The platform for the centralized part of SON is a modular OSS solution based on NetAct, which allows unified multivendor network management and flexible automation, while the distributed SON functions at network element level guarantee immediate reaction times.

**Depending on the network configuration, with the Nokia Siemens Networks SON suite, network optimization cycle time can be reduced from 3 months to about 7 days.
