Self Organizing Network market forecast, titled SON deployments and key trends 2014-2020
“The definition of SON has evolved over recent years, from self-organizing networks to self-optimizing networks. This is not just a change in terminology or a marketing ploy. It reflects the increasing rich range of ways in which an operator needs to ensure the quality and efficiency of the networks, and at the same time, the need to automate as many processes as possible in the constant quest to reduce the operating costs of running a complex and high bandwidth HetNet.”
So SON has shifted from being focused mainly on housekeeping functions, notably Automatic Neighbor Relations (ANR), to being an essential part of wider strategies to optimize the RAN.
Self Organizing Network market forecasts over the next five years are broken down by the type of network technology and site size, and by the Self Organizing Network architectures adopted (distributed, centralized and hybrid). There are also detailed forecasts, with accompanying commentary, focused on the main SON use cases which will be adopted by MNOs up to 2020.
