Singapore, May 24, 2016 – Cellwize, the leading Self-Organizing Network (SON) solutions provider, today announced that it was named a “Cool Vendor” in Communications Service Provider Operational and Business Infrastructure, 2016 by Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory firm.
Cellwize leverages big data analytics insights from end-user devices to direct resources where more valuable subscribers need them, instead of the traditional SON approaches that optimize the network overall, regardless of the type or value of the customer actually connected and using the network.
“We are honored to be named a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner,” said Ofir Zemer, Cellwize CEO. “We feel this recognition demonstrates the importance of SON as a key component in not only providing more efficient use of network resources but more importantly aligning the network toward the most profitable subscribers or applications.”
In the report, analysts recommend for CTIOs to expand CSPs' relevance in the digital world by optimizing technology investments, collaborating with partners as well as optimizing architectures and processes. The Cellwize platform collects data feeds from multiple network sources including directly from the end-user devices through the its native crowdsourcing technology, CrowdView, and then optimizes network resources to deliver performance, coverage, data connectivity, reliability and speed to the right subscribers at the right time. Furthermore, Cellwize provides a holistic and virtualized solution through seamless integration with enterprise data platforms such as HPE Open NFV and EMC Real-Time Intelligence (RTI).
Ofir further commented, “Our 17 deployments worldwide, encompassing over 1.25 million managed cells, give us a valuable head start and knowledge to enable operators to evolve from network-centric to a customer-centric optimization resulting in better customer retention and improved Net Promoter Score (NPS).”
