DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/h2gzgt/selforganizing) has announced the addition of the "Self-Organizing Network (SON) Solutions Take a Deliberate, Incremental Path to the Future " report to their offering.
This report explains that despite an apparent pull-back in market enthusiasm for a full-fledged, autonomous, closed loop SON solution - which includes solution suppliers removing or downplaying the term SON from their discussions - both suppliers and CSPs are still moving inexorably toward SON by way of their continuous pursuit of optimization and automation wherever they can find it. This report will also provide a glimpse, by company, of what the major suppliers are presently explaining to the industry concerning how their present solution offerings are leading to SON vision enablement.
Today's SON has many positive attributes, and is being deployed widely in the name of process automation and operational cost reduction. However, Stratecast believes that the technology, and the standards around it, will evolve gradually alongside 4G deployments, 5G introductions, NFV, and SDN, to become a more comprehensive solution. SON will eventually span all network segments (access, core and backhaul) as well as all aspects of the business (cost, profitability, performance, and customer experience). Like other all-encompassing new business strategies, the full realization of SON, and its significant business benefits, will come gradually over the next 5-7 years, as CSPs and even large enterprises engage with automation, data analysis, and network definition in ways never tried before.
SON, today, is comprised of tools from several existing software solutions:
- Network and performance management systems
- Network planning
- Optimization software
- Business process automation
- Configuration management
- Data capture, analysis, and monetization systems
Key Topics Covered:
- SON Today
- Defining SON
- SON Makes Progress
- SON Startups
