Establishing the business case and technical implications driving SON technology forward

About the event:

Under increasing pressure to cut costs and streamline processes, operators are consistently being asked to do more with less. Self-organising networks offers the perfect opportunity to do both, delivering fool proof automated technology that will improve the consumer experience whilst drastically cutting costs in the long term.

Join us for the coinciding C-RAN Summit, taking place on October 17th, where industry leaders will gather to explore the business case for C-RAN, deployment use cases, associated technical implications and benefits to QoS.

The only commercial event exclusively dedicated to SON

  • Better understand how your organisation can effectively deploy SON technologies
  • Learn from leading operators as they explore step by step roll out and implementation
  • Identify the current capabilities of these technologies and how SON can benefit your network
  • Hear the business case driving centralised and decentralised SON forward
  • Understand the impact and technical hurdles for virtualisation, interoperability and system integration
  • Discuss the potential for Future Mobile Networks and the greater impact of SON technologies
  • Pinpoint the unrealised benefits for Cloud RAN and the associated drivers for commercial implementation
  • Debate the underutilised commercial prospects for big data analytics and the benefits to real-time consumer experience
