The automation paradigm for network management is captured in the self-organizing network (SON) concept. Apart from reducing the time needed to bring new equipment to its optimal operational level, self-optimization promises to improve QoS. This can be achieved due to the fact that automation enables shorter optimization cycles, entailing expedited and fine-grained adjustments of parameters.
The self-organizing network concept sounds extremely attractive, but the question remains, how can it be implemented? An additional concern involves finding a way to let the network manage itself, whilst simultaneously retaining control over it, so it organizes itself according to the business goals defined by the service provider.
