Self-Organizing Network (SON) Solutions Take a Deliberate, Incremental Path to the Future

LONDON, Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This report explains that despite an apparent pull-back in market enthusiasm for a full-fledged, autonomous, closed loop SON solution—which includes solution suppliers removing or downplaying the term SON from their discussions—both suppliers and CSPs are still moving inexorably toward SON by way of their continuous pursuit of optimization and automation wherever they can find it. This report will also provide a glimpse, by company, of what the major suppliers are presently explaining to the industry concerning how their present solution offerings are leading to SON vision enablement.


The communications industry is well understood to be changing rapidly, even profoundly. The product portfolios of communication service providers (CSPs) are a good example. These portfolios now include services that go well beyond the voice-only days of the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN)—may it soon rest in peace. They also include on-demand applications and services for business and consumer customers, and will increasingly provide the same for machine-based users. Demand is ballooning for the delivery of instantaneous services that include bandwidth, cloud infrastructure, third-party value-added solutions, media content, network and customer intelligence, storage, sensor connectivity and data collection.

Increasingly included in this list of demands are managed operations services such as real-time monitoring and maintenance. The source of this demand is also changing; it is now coming not only from traditional customers, but from partners and competitors alike; making the communications ecosystem and corresponding business models increasingly complex.
