According to Infonetics, the primary reasons to deploy SON (self-organizing networks) are OpEx reduction, improvement in capacity, quality, network performance, and small cell usage. I have been hearing exactly the same message in my discussions with service providers all over the world. The fundamental goal of SON is to minimize the network lifecycle-related cost.
Mobile backhaul architecture should be designed according to the needs of the carried services. One way to do this is for operators to look to the traffic volume distribution among the cell sites. Feedback that we’ve received from operators suggests that, typically, well over 50% of traffic volumes originate from cell sites in urban regions.
Video is everywhere today. PSY’s “Gangnam Style,” for example, was uploaded on the Internet in July, and now it’s the most downloaded video in the history of YouTube.
It amazes me: how can one video become such a hit on television shows, at school dances, and, of course, at Christmas parties? And there are plenty of other "Gangnam"-inspired YouTube videos, including farmers, prisoners and newlyweds copying the dance!
Network architecture is becoming flatter and networks start to organize themselves. However, some aspects of Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks further complicate network management.
In today’s highly competitive telecom market, even fierce rivals are considering sharing their networks. Network sharing reduces costs, expands network coverage and speeds the rollout of new services.
