MANILA, Philippines – Globe Telecom Incorporated teamed up with Huawei for the deployment of a solution to efficiently manage a more complex network.
Sealed by Globe president and CEO Ernest Cu and Huawei wireless product line president David Wang on March 1 at the Mobile World Congress, the tie-up made Globe the first operator in the world to deploy Huawei’s SingleSON (self-organizing network) solution to optimize its wireless network performance, as well as its operation and maintenance.
The SingleSON solution lets a telecommunications provider better manage the growth and development of mobile data services traffic.
The solution was recently tested live on the Globe mobile network’s 20,000 2G, 3G, and 4G cells – the largest deployment thus far for Huawei SingleSON. Globe said the performance of the solution provided immediate improvement on both drop call rates, as well as users’ throughput. It also exhibited better sharing of radio resources between layers and technologies.
“The capabilities of the SingleSON solution in improving our network’s O&M efficiency and performance are impressive. It will allow us to continuously deliver a great user experience without additional manpower resources to manage an increasingly more complex network,” Robert Tan, Globe’s chief technical adviser, said.
The features, development, and improvements of the SingleSON solution’s first commercial trial performed on the Globe network were shared with several other trials in more than 25 networks in countries and regions such as Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa, China, South America, Australia, and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
Globe said it planned to deploy the SingleSON solution nationwide in 2015. – Rappler.com
