Nokia Networks has formally launched its new SON offering, following its acquisition of Eden Rock Communications earlier in 2015. The new solution set will be called Nokia Eden-NET, and it will combine assets from Eden Rock’s Eden-NET with Nokia Networks’ iSON Manager.
The company said it has built its SON offering in a modular way, on an open framework, so that operators can address certain use cases when and as required.
When it bought Eden Rock in march 2015, Nokia said that the principle goal was to deepen its multi-vendor capabilities by adding the company’s Eden-NET centralised SON (C-SON) capabilities to its existing iSON Manager product.
Coming fewer than four months after acquisition, the announcement of the new integrated portfolio is a swift move – with Nokia claiming it has accelerated feature availability by 6-12 months.
