Node B Deployment Enhancements
1. SITUATION OF USE CASE
Engineering and provisioning of eNodeBs
Currently communications service providers are facing time consuming and risky manual processes, with costly issues when implementing, expanding, configuring and operating their´s 3G/4G RAN due to multiple constraints, for example:
2. SOLUTION OF USE CASE
Automation solution using MAT
To overcome these numerous issues, MAT, Iquall Network’s Automatization framework, provides complete automated engineering and provisioning solution to the Multi Domain, Multi vendor and Multi technology RAN, allowing the communications service providers count on a single umbrella to agilize the RAN rollout process, simplifying the overall tasks, reducing deployment time and optimizing cost. Main considerations of the solution include:
3. RESULTS OF USE CASE
Results of Implementing MAT
Communications Service providers using MAT for this successful case of use, have obtained an important reduction of more than 70% of the RAN rollout time, optimizing as well all the steps from the engineering to the “on air” final test and validation process, reaching a monetization time for the mobile services in just few days rather than several weeks, driving a huge efficiency and precious market time to render services on time while gaining new clients and contributing signiticativaly in the reduction of time to cash requested by financial departments and CEO’s.
Another important outcome is the job reassignment of critical and specialized human resources to more productive tasks than those previously executed following manual and rutinary procedures and getting an efficient and automated KPI’s management of nodes B, all changes having an impact of Opex savings of more than 50%.
