Capacity Optimization solution helps find the right balance between capacity, performance and traffic demand. The solution maximizes network usage and helps operators identify a CAPEX optimized solution through a combination of network optimization, soft capacity (SW feature) and hard capacity (HW upgrade) measures to cover any future traffic needs.
The current business environment increases pressure on operators to reduce their CAPEX and OPEX.
However at the same time the introduction of flat rates for mobile subscriptions leads to an exponential growth in data traffic which operator need to support.
The increased throughput creates bottlenecks and blocks in operator networks, leading to a deteriorating quality of experience for the end-users with the risk of increased churn.
Capacity Optimization solution consists of several modules having the common objectives to improve the network resource usage, optimize the capacity expansion and improve the network performance.
NSN preferred approach is to deliver an end -to-end Capacity Optimization Solution. Starting from radio, through transport and core networks, we perform the following activities for any NSN supported technologies:
- Monitoring , reporting and analysis of network capacity and performance
- Structured problem solving and troubleshooting
- Identification of needed software and hardware upgrades
- Reactive and proactive capacity and performance optimization
- Solution implementation
As an alternative to our end-to-end solution we can also deliver customized services addressing specific operator challenges :
- 3G HW carrier upgrade
- Network readiness for special events
- HSPA capacity optimization
- Quality of service introduction
Benefits for operators
The capacity optimization solution helps maximizing the use of network resources and improving the mobile network performance as defined by a set of indicators related to the offered capacity.
Although the services included in the solution cover different technologies, features and network sections, they provide common benefits:
- OPEX reduction
- CAPEX optimization
- Quality improvement
- Revenue increase and churn reduction
