Innovile, the global provider of network management and optimisation solutions, deploys Self Organising Network (SON) solution to leading Russian mobile operator, MegaFon, to help effectively manage its network performance. MegaFon selected Innovile following a detailed tender process and a successful, intensive trial.

MegaFon’s network currently consists of around 800,000 2G, 3G and 4G cells and is projected to exceed one million cells in the next five years. Comprised of multiple acquisitions, MegaFon’s network is a complex combination of technologies from many vendors, including more than 20 different Operational Support Systems (OSS). Innovile’s SON is being used to simplify and standardise operations and optimise the multi-technology, multi-vendor network across Russia, spanning eight branches and eleven time zones and covering around 77 million subscribers. The implementation is scheduled to be completed Q1 2019 and includes fourteen SON modules. Currently deployed modules are already bringing noticeable performance benefits to network quality.

Mikhail Karakulin, CTO of Moscow Region MegaFon stated: “We are impressed with the flexibility and modularity of Innovile’s SON solution and appreciate the speed with which Innovile responds to our needs. The solution not only allows us to tailor the optimization modules according to our network policies but has also demonstrated noticeable KPI improvement. Innovile’s experience in the network optimisation and automation space ensures that MegaFon will be ready for our next generation network evolution with network-embedded automation”.

Ahmet Ozturk, Co-founder and Director of R&D, Innovile added: “We’re excited to help MegaFon transform its network and service in what is one of the largest and most complex SON projects ever. As operators’ networks become increasingly complex, challenging and costly to manage, proven SON solutions will help to boost performance and quality of service. The result is a better customer experience and improved operational efficiency, reducing costs. In times of intense competition, these factors can be business-critical to manage customer churn and sustain profitability”.
