Celcite SON Features & Benefits:
Celcite’s SON solution, Celcite SON, is a multi-vendor, multi-technology network optimization solution which is highly scalable to maximize the network potential of today’s complex Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets). The dynamic and autonomous closed-loop actions of Celcite SON enable self-configuration, self-optimization, and self-healing of networks with no human interaction.
Celcite SON improves network quality and performance by simplifying network management, reducing operation costs, and maximizing profitability. Celcite SON does this by reducing the need for human intervention and managing the network autonomously. Using its proprietary algorithms and extensive real life network optimization experience, Celcite optimizes the network experience for millions of wireless subscribers.
Celcite SON automatically optimizes both 3G and 4G networks, doubling the cost-reduction benefit. Network quality and performance improvements include 15% more capacity, 20% fewer dropped calls, and 10% faster mobile broadband speeds. Celcite SON deployment helps to delay investment in new network assets thus, reducing CapEx and OpEx. 20,000 cell sites are currently optimized automatically using Celcite SON.
Network optimization use cases & examples
Celcite has identified numerous use cases where Celcite SON can increase network capacity and coverage. All the use cases improve network efficiency, subscriber Quality of Experience (QoE) and cost-savings. In addition, Celcite has several unique use cases such as:
Accelerated Load Balancing (ALB) feature shifts data and traffic from overloaded cells to those with free capacity. Celcite SON uses ALB to provide automatic changes to the network and correct problems within minutes.
Cell Outage Detection and Cell Outage Compensation compensates for loss of coverage or capacity in an outage situation, designed to react quickly for near real-time corrective actions. These capabilities help mobile operators to reduce the amount of money spent on maintenance routine tasks and helps in significantly reducing CAPEX/OPEX.
Responsibility Metrics allows network engineers to pinpoint quickly and easily which cells are proportionately most responsible for network problems, for the first time.
One of our recent real world examples of Celcite SON in action is the ALB feature providing a high quality subscriber experience by greatly minimizing the periods of degradation during a two-day Madonna concert. Some of the world’s largest mobile network operators, biggest megacities and most widely watched musical, sporting and cultural events are all being optimized live, in real-time by Celcite SON today.
