vSON™ Simulator

 vSON™ Simulator

vSON is designed to assist mobile operators in planning their network deployments, and specifically, evaluating the impact of incorporating eSON features. It allows operators to virtually overlay eSON-enabled cells on top of an existing mobile network and simulate network operations in order to quantify the eSON-generated improvements in network capacity.

vSON is a simulation environment of real-world entities including base stations (eNBs), user equipment (UEs), and network management facilities. The platform allows for a large number of elements to be instantiated to accurately depict dense small cell and heterogeneous deployments.

 

vSON operator use cases include:

-HetNet tool for planning and performance and prediction in simulation-only mode
-HetNet tool for planning and performance prediction with real network data
-Planning and performance prediction tool with actual small cell parameters
-Evaluation platform for the performance of various SON features from different vendors
-Diagnostics and monitoring tool for HetNet deployments
