CellMining wins self-organizing network contract with MegaFon

Self-Organizing Networks (SON) provider CellMining Ltd´s behavior-based solution has been selected by Russian mobile operator MegaFon to optimize its network performance in the Moscow region, the company said.

The decision to place the SON contract with CellMining was taken after an extremely rigorous and lengthy selection process during which products from several leading SON vendors-including network infrastructure vendors-were trialed on the operator´s network.

CellMining´s multi-vendor, multi-technology SON capability was a key deciding factor in its selection. Another important consideration was that it provides subscriber-aware energy-saving modules-these deliver a safe way of reducing operating costs by selectively shutting down radio power when traffic levels are low, without risking any degradation in the subscriber experience.
