Cellwize sees growing demand for multi-technology SON as mobile operators look to deploy IoT infrastructure

Singapore May 15, 2014 - Cellwize, the innovative Self-Optimizing Network (SON) solutions provider announced today that an increasing number of mobile operators are looking to deploy cross-technology and multi-vendor Self-Optimizing Network (SON) solutions to boost 2G, 3G and LTE networks. One reason for this is that with the drive towards creating the infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT), optimizing the sometimes-forgotten 2G network is back on top of operators' agendas.

"At the moment, there's a definite focus on 3G and 4G technologies, yet 2G's role is sometimes overlooked," said Ofir Zemer, CEO of Cellwize. "Fact is, it is still the trusted workhorse for so many operators and 2G does provide ubiquitous coverage. That's why most IoT and M2M devices currently use 2G - it is the most efficient form of a connection. The good news is that operators are looking to the future too. We've observed increasing interest for holistic SON solutions that support 2G, 3G and LTE. A SON solution needs to meet the demands of today's network and be future proof to meet tomorrow's needs."

Cellwize's observations are in line with a recent report from Machina Research. M2M is currently dominated by 2G and Machina Research predicts that by 2022, 3G and LTE will account for almost 90% of connections. Currently, since the transition from 2G to 3G for IoT is slow, operators need to ensure their IoT Service Level Agreements (SLA) are guaranteed through the implementation of a SON solution that supports the optimisation of multiple technologies.

Cellwize's centralized SON (C-SON) solutions have proven popular amongst operators as it can deliver outstanding coverage for 2G and works seamlessly to deliver 3G and LTE. elastic-SON™ is able to make the most out of the entire network by providing mobility, robustness and retainability. It can deliver 25 percent more capacity, 30 percent increase in data throughput and 10 percent more coverage.

Cellwize was founded by Radio Frequency (RF) engineers who mastered network topology and network behaviour. The innovative market proven elastic-SON™ establishes the building blocks to support customer-centric use cases with its Value Driven-SON™, which uses Big Data insight to self-adapt the network to meet customer needs in real time. Cellwize SON solutions are very fast; able to access, analyse and moderate 40,000 sectors in 47 sec from data collection to SON recommendation using 1 non-unique server.

The Open Group and BriefingsDirect recently assembled a distinguished panel at The Open Group Boston Conference 2014 to explore the practical implications and limits of the Internet of Things. This so-called Internet of Things means more data, more cloud connectivity and management, and an additional tier of “things” that are going to be part of the mobile edge -- and extending that mobile edge ever deeper into even our own bodies. Yet the Internet of Things is more than the “things” – it me...

In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Skyla Loomis, a Program Director of Cloudant Development at Cloudant, will discuss the security, performance, and operational implications of keeping your data on premise, moving it to the cloud, or taking a hybrid approach. She will use real customer examples to illustrate the tradeoffs, key decision points, and how to be successful with a cloud or hybrid cloud solution.
For the last hundred years, the desk phone has been a staple of every business. The landline has been a lifeline to customers and colleagues as the primary means of communication – even as email threatened to render the telephone obsolete.

The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
