SON, LTE & HetNets proliferation to drive growth

Network operators are likely to face new challenges in achieving optimal network utilisation as LTE and HetNets (Heterogeneous Networks) will continue to grow. The multivendor nature of HetNets could give rise to interoperability issues between cellular sites, thereby negatively affecting the quality of service experienced by the end user. The higher degree of automation apparent within Self-Organising Networks (SONs) will help enhance network utilisation significantly. This implementation of SONs by network operators, in turn, will translate to greater uptake of SON-specific testing and monitoring solutions.
