Tokyo, Japan – May 31, 2012
World’s first self-operating 3G and 4G mobile network deployed in Japan
Nokia Siemens Networks transforms KDDI 3G and LTE networks to automatically
deliver consistent voice and data
Nokia Siemens Networks has deployed a new telecoms operating system for
Japanese mobile operator KDDI that has created the world’s first, intelligent,
self-organizing network. The approach automatically manages KDDI’s 3G and 4G
(LTE) networks to ensure people receive a consistent voice and data service,
irrespective of the network they are using. The intelligent Self Organizing
s) approach from Nokia Siemens Networks operates country-wide, across networks
built with equipment from multiple vendors.
“As a leader in self-organizing networks, Nokia Siemens Networks was an obvious
choice when we decided to consolidate and optimize our network operating
processes via automation,” said Toshihiko Yumoto, vice president and general
manager, network technical development division, technology sector at KDDI.
“Nokia Siemens Networks’ multi-vendor iSON helps us to efficiently service our
customer’s always-on communication service, and this will be all the more
important when we launch LTE later this year.”
The iSON solution uses Nokia Siemens Networks’ advanced NetAct Operations
Support System (OSS)
ms/netact) and allows the operator to automate and optimize its network
operating processes across multiple technologies and vendors. iSON is a key
part of Nokia Siemens Networks’ Liquid Net
(http://www.nokiasiemensnetworks.com/portfolio/liquidnet) -based approach to
efficiently managing the demands of delivering efficient mobile broadband,
whilst delivering and managing a valuable customer experience.
Nokia Siemens Networks’ multi-vendor iSON provides KDDI with a unified and
flexible platform as well as an integration layer for dynamic and cost
efficient multivendor operations. Consolidating the OSS landscape across
ms/netact) automatically tunes the networks to be more responsive to traffic
fluctuations. This saves manual effort and improves network availability. It
also increases the interworking performance across 3G and LTE by automatic
adaptations of the system linkage parameters such as Self configured Circuit
Switched FallBack (CSFB).Mobility Robustness Optimization (MRO) automatically
adapts and speeds up LTE network optimization and improvement cycle.
The company has also provided professional services for implementation,
integration and customization with KDDI’s business processes.
“KDDI’s multi-technology network from several vendors called for a solution
that would address specific synchronization and optimization requirements,”
said Scott Mottonen, head of the CDMA/LTE business at Nokia Siemens Networks.
“Our iSON solution allows for consistency and flexibility in multi-vendor
environments, minimizing operational costs and errors. Moreover, providing a
single view over the entire network caters also for efficient customer
