How SDN and NFV Extend the Adoption and Capabilities of Self-Organizing Network (SON)


Communication service providers (CSPs) are going through rough times trying to reinvent themselves in an age when the network is becoming a commodity. As network usage is growing rapidly, telecoms are constantly focused on optimizing the utilization of resources in their networks, in order to do more with less.

SON (self-organizing network) is a set of technologies and concepts that help CSPs to reach that goal by automating network operations.  However, applying the SON concept to other network domains brings its own set of problems. Compared to the RAN, these other domains are very heterogeneous in terms of technologies that support them. But network function virtualization and software-defined networking  have recently been gaining ground in the core and backhaul fields, becoming enablers for the expansion of SON solutions to those network domains. Download our white paper and find out how SDN and NFV can extend the adoption and capabilities of Self-Organizing Networks.
