Nokia said its SON technology will enable Orange to automate radio network configuration and optimization processes for its 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G networks, as well as improve network performance.
“As a long-term partner, Nokia was a natural choice to help us automate our mobile networks in different geographies. The complexity of radio optimization is growing with 5G beamforming and Nokia’s flexible, automated and multi-vendor platform enables us to maintain our exemplary network quality and customer satisfaction in the 5G era,” said Arnaud Vamparys, Senior VP Radio Networks and 5G at Orange.
“5G deployments and rollouts look much simpler on paper than they do in the real world. We appreciate and understand that our CSP customers have a technology stack that spans multiple vendors, which can lead to inefficiencies and complexity. Working with Orange and its global affiliates to optimize and simplify their multi-vendor networks is a challenge we relish and are proud to be part of,” said Mark Atkinson, Head of RAN at Nokia.
