The company said eSON360 enables Jio to optimize its network performance in real-time, delivering multi-cell coordination of network resources, optimized coverage, capacity, and mobility while adapting to the ever-changing network environment.
eSON360 provides a multi-vendor real-time SON solution that enables Jio to deploy across it RAN vendor base to achieve a common SON approach.
eSON360 delivers flexibility in deployment topology, enabling JioSON to be deployed across already existing data centers spread throughout India. In addition, eSON360 dynamically scales to the size of the network deployment and provides additional flexibility and robustness through embedded load balancing and real-time process monitoring.
