Nokia Siemens deploys intelligent network solution at KDDI

31 May 2012

Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has deployed a new telecoms operating system for Japanese mobile operator KDDI that has created the world’s first, intelligent self-organising network (iSON). The solution automatically manages KDDI’s 3G and 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks to ensure that customers receive a consistent voice and data service, irrespective of the network they are using. The iSON solution utilises NSN’s advanced NetAct Operations Support System (OSS) and allows KDDI to automate and optimise its network operating processes across multiple technologies and vendors. KDDI is Japan’s second largest cellular operator by subscribers, with a customer base of 35.1 million and 27% of the overall Japanese mobile market at the end of March 2012, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database.
