Elisa said it will be demonstrating a cloud-ready mobile network automation system for telecommunication operators at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 26 February to 01 March. It will showcase Elisa SON (Self-Organising Networks) there with Red Hat. Elisa SON uses closed loop automation and tailored algorithms that can double user data throughput on an existing network.

Elisa offers unlimited data plans to subscribers, so its networks carry a high volume of mobile data. For this reason, it has focused on optimising network performance and getting maximum value out of its existing equipment.

Elisa SON generates increased network efficiency and improved service quality. It enables both operating and capital expenditure savings. On Elisa’s own network in Finland, the software actively monitors and tests the network, making more than 2 million tests and 2,000 changes daily.

Less resource-intensive manual work is required, and existing investments can be fully utilised, said Elisa CTO Kalle Lehtinen. In addition, operators can create and develop their own optimisation algorithms.

Elisa’s collaboration with open source software provider Red Hat has helped the company to be more agile in developing, managing and launching Elisa SON. Elisa is delivering SON on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
