Self Organizing Networks (SON) Challenges and Market Opportunities for LTE and beyond, Third Edition

  1. 1. Self Organizing Networks (SON) Challenges and Market Opportunities for LTE and beyond, Third EditionOverview: The Fourth Generation (4G) of cellular communications based on the Long Term Evolution(LTE) standard promises much great network capacity. This greater supply of bandwidth will stimulate thedevelopment, implementation and operation of many new applications, each with very unique quality ofservice, bandwidth, and performance needs. It will be a much more complex network and this will facilitate aneed for improved operations and OSS. A key driver for improving OSS for 4G systems, the so called SelfOrganizing Network (SON) has been introduced as part of the 3GPP LTE network framework. SON isexpected to be deployed over time and ultimately have a dramatically positive effect on network operationsand OSS. This research evaluates SON capabilities, vendors, and solutions. It analyzes the function of SONrelative to LTE and evaluates the benefits of deployment and operation. The report also discusses the future ofSON beyond 4G. This research includes a forecast for overall OSS/BSS revenue.
