SON (Self-organizing networks) ecosystem technology eradicates the manual configuration of equipment in the period of the deployment and minimizes the lifecycle cost of running the mobile network. Furthermore, SON market revenue is expected to grow over $4 billion by the year 2014 despite, crossing over conventional mobile network optimization revenue nearly over 60%. This is during the time of deployment right through troubleshooting and dynamically optimizing the performance. Furthermore, this improves the Opex to revenue ratio and reduces the cost of operator’s services.
On addition, Mobile operators are eager to capitalize on SON amid expanding demand for connectivity for mobile broadband. This is mainly to minimize operations expenditure and rollout delays associated with their current HetNet and LTE deployments. This is expected to impact the overall Self-organizing networks ecosystem market.SON technology is now utilized in mobile core as it is originally targeted (Radio Access network) RAN segment. Furthermore, it also being used in transport network and mobile core segments. SON ecosystem is undergoing convergence with other technological innovations like DPI, Big Data and predictive analysis.
SON basically replaces the manual steps of equipment by automated technologies. On addition, It helps solidify networks and cut down the cost of deployment by eliminating human error. Firm utilizing self-organizing have reported impressive level of progress in connecting. Self-organizing networks are sharpened as the demand for mobile broadband services has increased.
