Eden-NET is the industry’s leading centralized multi-technology multi-vendor SON solution. Incorporating the most potent framework within the industry, the highly-extensible, highly-available, highly-scalable, future-proof Eden-NET solution delivers the most effective automation, optimal network performance, and highest network reliability.
The major framework subsystems of Eden-NET are listed below:
- The SON Module Engine provides extensive functionality for the run-time execution of SON Modules. Eden-NET comes with a toolbox of SON Modules and operators have the capability to modify these SON Modules and create or have created additional SON Modules.
- The Eden-NET GUI provides an interface for users of Eden-NET to manage and configure the operation of Eden-NET, launch SON Modules, view the results of SON operations, and view the network topology, SON status and SON logs. The GUI also provides user defined KPI charts and map coloring based on KPIs, permitting full visualization of the impact of SON changes on the network.
- The OAM&P Engine includes extensive functionality in the domains of administration, configuration management logging, and fault management of Eden-NET.
- The SON Adapter Layer provides a well-structured abstraction layer for interfaces to external systems (e.g., RAN configuration parameter data, KPI’s, Layer 3 event data, alarm data, etc.).
- The Network Performance Engine performs processing of network performance metrics, events, and alarms. These metrics, events, and alarms are available to SON Modules via the Eden-NET API.
- The Parameter Management Engine manages network configuration parameter data that is pulled from and pushed to the network. This component maintains a full history of changes made to network parameters by Eden-NET and other systems, which forms the basis of the Eden-NET parameter rollback capabilities.
- The RF Prediction Engine enables SON Modules to perform run-time RF predictions of specific scenarios and use the results of RF Prediction within the decision logic of the module.
- The Geo-location Engine performs processing of event data to calculate UE location information that may be used as inputs into specific SON Modules.
