Automation of complex and intensive tasks across RAN, OpenRAN Controller, and all other network elements within an OpenRAN architecture-based network deployment not only helps operators reduce cost, but it also enables them to be more agile in providing better coverage and improving QoS by deploying a mixture of many generations of mobile technologies (2G/3G/4G/5G). SON and SDN are essential and integral parts of next generation mobile architectures such as 5G.
The Parallel Wireless
Network Service Orchestration provides complete RAN orchestration including self-configuration, self-optimization, and self-healing using Analytics and real-time SON functions. New radio units are self-configured by the software, reducing the need for manual intervention. The self-optimization provides necessary optimization across different RANs, utilizing available RAN data from the Analytics module. The predictive approach utilized by the Parallel Wireless platform, in contrast to the legacy reactive optimization approach, improves user experience and increases network resource utilization.
Features and Capabilities
Network Orchestrator performs intelligent orchestration, scheduling, and service chaining across the network and supports Network Slicing and Network Sharing natively. This level of orchestration enables operators to design and capture custom network differentiators while reducing TCO.
Parallel Wireless’ approach to real-time orchestration and SON is to implement a truly hybrid SON where complex algorithms can run in a centralized EMS, which will have a universal view of the RAN conditions across many cells and RAT types (
5G, 4G, 3G, and 2G). The orchestration engine facilitates schedulers and algorithms to be updated in base stations, thus readily bringing newer innovative features to base stations sooner. This SON solution operates in real-time with very proactive and fast reaction time. SON software has access to relevant data which can be used for predictive scheduling and user steering of traffic among different bands, cells or sectors. The EMS has a network-wide view that brings about continuous monitoring of KPIs, triggering closed loop optimization, and with input from Big Data analytics, delivers ongoing performance optimization and network planning purposes.
This unique architecture supports multiple innovative algorithms, e.g. dynamic FFR, and Adaptive Transmit Power control with a holistic view of the network. Automation reduces human errors and external factors to provide a better QoS to users, especially users that are experiencing a poor QoS due to interference. Parallel Wireless’ SON features for Self-Configuration, ANR and ICIC further automate network operation. Interference mitigation is solved across sectors, cells, indoor,
outdoor and even mobile base stations in vehicles.
The self-configuration features of the network orchestrator enable new cells to be added and configured using a plug-n-play approach. Self-configuration capabilities also reduce the level of installer input and costs, ensuring that cells integrate correctly into the network. SON self-configuration feature identifies the new cells in the network, which allows SON to run the smart algorithm for hands-free configuration and reduces the time to “activate services” for the operator.
