InteliSON ® The Pioneer and Leader in Self-Optimizing Networks
InteliSON ®Intelligent SON Solutions / 2 / www.reverbnetworks.com Self-Optimized Network Solution Reverb’s InteliSON® solution uses network Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), interference matrices, and alarms collected by the wireless network’s OSS and PM platforms to identify load imbalance, interference and cell outage conditions, and resolves them through changes to network configuration parameters. > Closed-loop, automated SON > Continuous operation > Multi-vendor RAN and OSS capable > UMTS and LTE support > Coverage & capacity optimization modules > Mobility load balance optimization modules > Mobility robustness optimization modules > Self-healing modules
CLOSED-LOOP SON-BASED OPTIMIZATIONReverb Networks’ InteliSON offers Mobile Networks Operators anautomated system that continuously monitors and optimizes theRadio Access Network by leveraging the capability of the operator’sexisting network and OSS infrastructure. Intelligent SON Solutions / 3 / www.reverbnetworks.comInteliSON operates on the principle that a steady state ofoptimization through continual tuning of the network configurationsettings enables the network to remain in a higher state ofperformance as compared to the more traditional approach ofmaking adjustments only a limited number of times per year as partof labor-intensive optimization campaigns.InteliSON achieves this state of performance through automaticmonitoring of key network KPIs and, based on this closed-loopfeedback, makes configuration changes to improve performance.These changes are made incrementally and in a closed loop mannersuch that network performance converges over a series cycles Continuous Optimization Cycle Advantages of InteliSONto an optimal state. The overall result is a higher state of networkperformance maintained more consistently.
SystemIntelligent SON Solutions / 4 / www.reverbnetworks.com Architecture InteliSON is an independent, server-based system that can be added to any UMTS or LTE RAN architecture and supports all leading OEM infrastructure solutions. Its vendor-agnostic architecture allows it to be effectively deployed in multi-vendor networks.

OptimizationIntelligent SON Solutions / 6 / www.reverbnetworks.com Modules InteliSON continuously communicates with the OSS for monitoring network KPIs — determining the best cell configurations for maximizing network coverage, capacity and quality of service. The process is fully automated and it takes only a few iterations to optimize congested areas. Instead of inherently error prone path loss and network traffic prediction files, InteliSON uses real time, actual network KPIs from the OSS. InteliSON helps RF engineers keep their focus on network quality and subscriber experience by assuming the tedious and time consuming work related to network optimization. Through intelligent optimization algorithms, InteliSON maximizes network performance for increased revenue and quality and for reducing network expenditures. Operating automatically, InteliSON continuously tracks the actual network performance. This continuous optimization makes the configuration changes small and provides at any moment in time the best network performance.

SuperiorIntelligent SON Solutions / 8 / www.reverbnetworks.com Optimization InteliSON is very nimble in keeping the subscriber experience up. By continuously monitoring OSS KPI and call traces, InteliSON detects very early performance degradation trends and starts taking measures for fixing them. New configurations are loaded into the OSS before subscribers may notice performance degradation. This way, subscribers continuously benefit from a good quality of experience.
