Russia’s Leading Mobile Network Uses INNTELLIGENT Self Organising Network
With over 800,000 2G, 3G, and 4G cells, and 80 million customers across 11 time zones, our client in Russia was seeking a Self-Organizing Network solution that could work at scale. After an extensive procurement process, they selected Innovile’s INNTELLIGENT SON to do the job.
This was a fascinating challenge. Not only because of the size but also because of the architectural and operational complexity.
Four different network vendors. Seven operating regions, each with specific requirements. Twenty different OSS platforms to integrate with. Not a simple task.
The existing, largely manual, network management practices were not working well. Apart from the obvious massive resource loading required, human error, network ‘blind spots’, continuous change, and performance challenges persisted. The business case was clear: network automation was needed.
Our professional services team expertly managed the deployment of the 13 SON modules, completing the project in 2019. Released in phases, INNTELLIGENT SON was able to deliver incremental value according to the priorities set in the design and planning project phase. It’s always good to see ROI before project completion!
The automated optimization and healing capability inherent in our INNTELLIGENT SON system were particularly useful in reducing resource needs, adjusting network parameters based on real-time analytics, and removing blind spots to proactively improve network quality and performance. Automated fault management also proved invaluable to rapidly fix issues detected in our SON.
With a 20% improvement to network capacity and throughout, and a fraction of the previous network operations cost hitting the bottom line, customer experience, and service profitability have been the big winners in this excellent and massive SON deployment.
