Ericsson Pitches Self-organizing Networks

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012, Ericsson is launching a self-organizing networks (SON) Optimization Manager that automates the process of optimizing the capacity, coverage and quality of mobile networks.

The company is taking a number of the network optimization and management features developed for LTE and extending them for multi-standard networks. Whereas optimization is traditionally a slow, complex process carried out at regular intervals by teams of network experts, SON Optimization Manager automates the process.

Ulf Ewaldsson, Senior Vice President, Chief Technology Officer, Head of Group Function Technology & Portfolio Management at Ericsson, says: "SON Optimization Manager is based on a simple idea - increasing automation to overcome increasing complexity. We call this Smart Simplicity, because it simplifies operators' processes and makes them more efficient."
