Telecom Lead Asia: Telecom gear maker Nokia Siemens
Networks has deployed the World’s first self-operating 3G and 4G mobile network
with the intelligent Self Organizing Networks (iSON) approach for
Japanese mobile operator KDDI.
The solution manages KDDI’s 3G and 4G (LTE) networks to
ensure people receive a consistent voice and data service, irrespective of the
network they are using.
As a leader in self-organizing networks, Nokia
Siemens Networks was an obvious choice when we decided to consolidate and
optimize our network operating processes via automation. Nokia Siemens
Networks’ multi-vendor iSON helps us to efficiently service our customer’s
always-on communication service, and this will be all the more important when
we launch LTE later this year,” said Toshihiko Yumoto, vice president and
general manager, network technical development division, technology sector at
Nokia Siemens Networks’ iSON provides KDDI with a
unified and flexible platform as well as an integration layer for dynamic and
cost efficient multivendor operations.
KDDI’s multi-technology network from several vendors
called for a solution that would address specific synchronization and optimization
requirements. Our iSON solution allows for consistency and flexibility in
multi-vendor environments, minimizing operational costs and errors,” said Scott
Mottonen, head of the CDMA/LTE business at Nokia Siemens Networks.
The iSON solution uses Nokia Siemens Networks’
advanced NetAct Operations Support System (OSS) and allows the
operator to automate and optimize its network operating processes across
multiple technologies and vendors.
Furthermore, NetAct automatically tunes the networks
to be more responsive to traffic fluctuations. This saves manual effort and
improves network availability. It also increases the interworking
performance across 3G and LTE by automatic adaptations of the system linkage
parameters such as Self configured Circuit Switched FallBack (CSFB).
The company has also provided professional services for
implementation, integration and customization with KDDI’s business processes.
