Infonetics: Operators Are Deploying SON in LTE and 3G Networks Alike; Name Top Vendors

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its new SON and Optimization Strategies: Global Service Provider Survey, for which Infonetics interviewed wireless, incumbent, and competitive operators around the world about their network optimization strategies and self-organizing network (SON) deployment plans.


“While SON is up and running in a few LTE networks around the world, we were surprised to find that some of the large incumbents we surveyed for our SON and optimization study have deployed SON as the key optimization tool in their 3G networks as well,” reports Stéphane Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at Infonetics Research. “Since SON was originally developed for LTE, this finding is fascinating and draws to a close the debate over whether SON could be used in legacy networks.”


  • The chief drivers for deploying SON are opex reduction; improvement in capacity, quality, and network performance; and small cell usage in the network
  • Automatic neighbor relations (ANR) is the most deployed SON feature among respondent operators
  • 80% of operators interviewed rate complexity as the #1 barrier to deploying SON
  • Survey respondents view Ericsson, Huawei, and Nokia Siemens Networks as the top SON vendors
  • A majority of respondents consider SON an unproven and immature technology


For its new 24-page SON and optimization survey, Infonetics interviewed independent wireless, incumbent, and competitive operators in Europe, North America, and Asia about their network optimization strategies and SON deployment plans. The study provides insights into SON features, drivers, implementation barriers, technical challenges, and vendors. Operators surveyed together represent 1/3 of the world’s telecom capex and carrier revenue and 16% of all mobile subscribers. To buy the survey, contact Infonetics:
