Globe taps Amdocs’ RAN optimisation services to gear up 5G expansion

2 Feb 2022

Globe Telecom of the Philippines has selected leading software and services provider Amdocs to help drive its 5G network expansion across the country. Under a three-year deal, the vendor will provide Globe with Radio Access Network (RAN) optimisation services for site acceptance, cluster optimisation and network performance management, reducing time to market for the introduction of new services and technologies. In a press release, Amdocs claimed its RAN optimisation services would ‘ensure faster resolution of issues and customer complaints than traditional drive-test techniques in which engineers measure a mobile network’s performance while travelling in a defined area and checking the network quality,’ allowing Globe to improve operational efficiency and enabling it to expand its 5G network more rapidly and launch new services.

Commenting on the development, Robert Tan, CTO at Globe, confirmed: ‘The Amdocs RAN Optimisation services for site acceptance, cluster optimisation and network performance management will accelerate the expansion of our 4G and 5G networks, ensuring greater business agility and faster time to market.’
