About the event

Despite the technical challenges associated with initial integration, SON revenue is expected to grow to more than $4 Billion by the end of  this year. This significant increase reflects the pressure to cut costs and streamline processes, as operators actively invest in automation technology to improve the efficiency of their networks. Self-organising networks offers the perfect solution, delivering automated technology that will improve the quality of service along with the consumer experience whilst drastically cutting costs in the long term. Join us for the only conference dedicated to in-depth SON discussion, operator led use cases and technical analyses.
