Celcite launches industry's most effective SON solution for UMTS networks

Celcite Management Solutions (www.celcite.com), the world’s leading provider of automatic optimisation tools and services for wireless networks, has announced COPS-SON™, an intelligent and dynamic closed-loop system for self-organising networks (SON). COPS-SON is designed to continuously configure, optimise and self-heal mobile networks, ensuring that radio performance always remains at the optimum level and that the best possible end-user experience is achieved. It uses network-proven optimisation techniques to provide the most efficient and cost-effective self-optimising solution available to operators today.

The ever-increasing demand for data services, coupled with the increased complexity of managing multi-technology and multi-vendor networks, is making it more difficult for operators to continually maintain their network performance at optimum levels to ensure improved customer experience of their subscribers. The need to immediately address outages and other critical problems that affect the network is driving the need for innovative solutions such as COPS-SON, which can significantly shorten the time taken to respond with remedial actions.

COPS-SON introduces a new dynamic SON capability to Celcite’s ground-breaking COPS™ optimisation platform for wireless operators. COPS-SON addresses several important functions in the network:

  • Self-Configuration: Automatically provides parameters for initial start-up and subsequent tuning when integrating new sites.
  • Self-Optimisation: Addresses on-going network performance issues by providing remedial actions to improve: radio resource management; network retainability; network accessibility; and network performance.
  • Self-Healing: Detects and compensates for lost coverage resulting in cell outage situations, minimising the negative end user impact.

Automating optimisation using COPS-SON makes it possible for operators to normalize OPEX and to postpone additional CAPEX while keeping pace with rapid growth in subscribers and data traffic. It also allows solutions to be implemented taking advantage of processes that are often too fast, too granular and too complex to permit manual intervention.

More about COPS-SON

COPS-SON utilises and improves upon a range of SON techniques that are proven to work in real network performance improvement projects. These include new and more robust Automatic Neighbour Relations (ANR), Load Balancing (LB), and Self-Healing (SH) algorithms, which have been shown to yield major improvements in KPIs. These algorithms ensure that COPS SON is the most advanced and cost-effective SON solution available today.

COPS-SON utilises smart Extraction, Transformation, and Load (ETL) engines to ensure that new raw data can be captured in a matter of minutes, provided that it is ready at the remote location. These ETL engines, combined with a fast algorithm and executor, ensure that necessary changes are implemented within 15 – 30 minutes of any event. Individual COPS-SON solutions are designed in co-operation with customers’ radio optimisation experts to meet their specific needs and expectations, and to maximise the improvement benefits they experience.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
