Eden Rock has established key alliances throughout the wireless ecosystem.
The greatest challenge wireless operators face today is keeping pace with rapidly growing consumer demand for increased wireless data capacity.
The worldwide total of smartphones is expected to exceed 2 billion by the end of 2016, and the total number of mobile-connected devices is expected to reach 9 billion in 2018. The industry is bracing for the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT), which will further increase data traffic demand. Mobile data traffic is expected to grow at a pace of 55% a year over the next five years.
Mobile operators are responding to the uninterrupted growth in devices and data by investing heavily into building LTE networks, evolving to HetNets, implementing Wi-Fi offload policies and exploring new models for spectrum sharing. While mobile operators are growing and increasing the complexity of their networks, the deployment of Self-Organizing Network (SON) solutions is essential to contain operating expenses (OPEX), bolster customer experience, improve competitive positioning and enhance profitability.
Self-Organizing Networks (SON) is a new layer of software intelligence that enables operators to automate the configuration, optimization, and maintenance of modern large-scale networks. SON works across multiple technologies (2G, 3G, and 4G), supports multiple RAN vendors, and interacts with third party systems such as planning, geolocation, fault management, CEM, Big-Data, etc. SON performs autonomous closed-loop network optimization of RAN parameters, dynamically adapts networks to optimally serve active subscribers, automates workflow and repairs network degradations.
