AirHop’s cloud-native eSON and eSON360 products provide real-time, closed loop RAN optimization and visualization and are deployed in traditional (pre-O-RAN Alliance) RAN architecture.
AirHop’s enhanced Self-Organizing Network (eSON) technology helps mobile operators optimize the wireless capacity and coverage of their deployed assets while improving data throughput and user experiences. In general, SON is an automation technology to make the planning, configuration, management, optimization and healing of wireless networks simpler and faster. SON measures Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) across the wireless network as input to intelligent algorithms that automatically generate parameters to optimize network setup, configuration and performance.
eSON’s flexible architecture makes it well suited for both green field networks using a broad-based deployment and for existing networks requiring an incremental deployment strategy. With eSON, users experience significant improvements in data throughput and Quality of Experience (QoE), while operators realize expanded capacity and reduced operation cost.
AirHop’s eSON360 is a network visualization platform designed to assist mobile operators in planning small cell and macro cell deployments, and specifically, evaluating the impact of eSON on network performance. It allows operators to virtually overlay eSON-enabled cells on top of an existing mobile network and simulate network operations in order to quantify improvements in network capacity and throughput.
