BARCELONA, Spain & HERNDON, VA -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Celcite Management Solutions, the world's leading provider of SON and network management solutions for the wireless industry, announced that Celcite will showcase at Mobile World Congress 2013 the next generation of its COPS network management platform, which will revolutionize the way operators manage their networks. Celcite's offering combines an innovative automation platform and expert managed services to help mobile network operators worldwide reach their goals with less effort. Celcite's mission is to simplify network management and maximise network potential.
Developed by Celcite, the latest generation of COPS provides a unified, enterprise grade intelligent OSS (iOSS) platform that leverages automation and centralized SON capabilities to monitor, manage, and mitigate network capacity and quality problems in an autonomous closed loop mode.
Multiple technologies (GSM, UMTS, LTE and Small Cells) have created a lattice of overlaid and inter-related networks that are extremely difficult to manage and optimize for quality and capacity with a legacy manual approach. The in-built dynamic and autonomous closed loop actions of COPS-SON enable self-configuration, self-optimization, and self-healing of networks with no human interaction. SON feature policies include ANR (Automatic Neighbor Re-ordering), LB (Load Balancing), SH (Self Healing), APO (Automatic Parameter Optimization) and Plug-and-Play module for self configuration when a new site is deployed.
COPS-SON has proven to deliver more than 15% improvement in capacity utilization and greater than 20% improvement in dropped call rate.
COPS-AIC is an automated network management platform that supports multi-vendor, multi-technology wireless networks. The Automatic Intelligent Correlation (AIC) engine automatically collects a variety of data types from the network, such as performance counters, configuration data, faults/alarms, trouble tickets, mobile measurements, and geo location data. AIC then automatically correlates all data points to provide triage between RF and operational issues, root cause analysis, audits, recommendations, and executable solutions along with mml or xml scripts. All of this happens with just a few clicks of the mouse and results in up to a 70% gain in operational efficiencies.
COPS-GEO is a probeless solution that harvests mobile measurement reports from the network to geocode every call event, thereby providing geographical context to data traffic, hotspots, interference, coverage gaps, overall location-estimated network behavior, and accurate monitoring of customers' voice and data experiences.
"Mobile network operators need smart, dynamic coverage and capacity management solutions to squeeze more out of their current networks and maximize network potential," said Ajay Khanna, CTO and Senior Vice President of Engineering at Celcite. "Celcite's next generation network management solutions meet the demands imposed by the increasing complexity of mobile networks, and operators can expect more than 70% in network efficiency and performance as a result."
Celcite's comprehensive range of solutions work together to automate the network, managing day-to-day operations and the optimisation of key performance parameters across multi-vendor 2G, 3G, HetNet and 4G networks.
