The need for improved network performance and more efficient use of network resources will require fundamental changes in the mobile network architecture. P.I. Works technology is designed to address those requirements and help operators expand the mobile wireless capacity to meet the future demand for mobile communication.
Increasing complexity and densification of mobile networks present a compelling argument for the need for self-aware networks. This will only be possible by moving to a virtualized, software defined network architecture. Operating this new architecture requires a shift in the existing network management and optimization approach, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will lay the foundation of this new approach. P.I. Works already started incorporating AI capabilities to its solutions. For example, by using the adaptive algorithms that recognize the network traffic patterns and utilization level of existing cells, our smart energy saving solution puts underutilized cell sites into idle mode. A tier 1 European operator already demonstrated approximately 5% reduction in the power consumption in a specific cluster of its live network. This is among the many examples of how P.I. Works is revolutionizing the way mobile networks are managed.
Another important aspect of mobile network evolution is that the networks needs to become more customer aware and SON is instrumental in achieving this. Collecting and correlating CEM (Customer Experience Management), crowdsourced, CRM (Customer Relationship Management), and access network data will give the operators the power to deliver a tailored Quality of Experience to specific customer groups. This will take the customer experience to a whole new level.
Last but not least, as the network becomes a virtual pool of resources and is sliced for specific applications, SON will play an important role in orchestrating the entire network and optimizing specific application layers. P.I. Works approach to mobile network management includes the monitoring of activities in the entire network, and taking actions in the transport and the radio access network together, so that the network performance can be managed more effectively.
If you want to learn more about how P.I. Works can help you in transforming your mobile network by using the power of SON, come and join us at MWC Americas, booth #W713.
P.I. Works also plays an important role in the development of key industry standards that define the future of mobile networks. P.I. Works actively contributes to the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standardization forum, Global TD-LTE initiative (GTI) and open source initiatives.
