Close to eighty of the worlds leading communications service providers are now using the market leading Nokia Siemens Networks NetAct Optimizer, a highly automated tool for improving radio network quality and performance. NetAct Optimizer speeds the optimization process by 50% compared to traditional methods while improving network performance by an average of 15% leading to increased return on revenue. NetAct Optimizer is also a key component of Nokia Siemens Networks’ Self Organizing Networks (SON) Suite.
Shanghai Unicom is one of the latest to select NetAct Optimizer to improve its multi-vendor GSM radio network performance and to automate the network optimization process. Hou Wenjun, manager of Shanghai Unicom Optimization Department said: “Network quality is very important in maintaining and acquiring subscribers. Nokia Siemens Networks NetAct Optimizer improves the performance of the whole network regardless of the vendor and the work efficiency has been improved a lot.”
Optimizer is also an essential part of the Nokia Siemens Networks SON Suite offering for GSM, WCDMA/HSPA+ and LTE integrated with the NetAct network management system. Automated optimization of network coverage and capacity improves the quality and performance of mobile networks and reduces the need for time consuming and error prone manual processes in network operations. Optimizing the network assets and capacity utilization also lowers CAPEX.
“At Nokia Siemens Networks we have used our strong system expertise and understanding of our customers’ needs to create a highly automated optimization tool that has proven very popular among service providers,” said Mikko J. Salminen, head of Operations Support Systems, Nokia Siemens Networks. “Optimizer owes its popularity to the automation that brings simplicity, savings and efficiency to radio network optimization, and the graphical user interface that makes it very easy for service provider staff to see what is going on in the network.”
