Cellwize joins Alcatel-Lucent CloudBand Ecosystem Program to deliver Self-Organizing Network technology for NFV

Cellwize has been testing and developing its NFV enabled SON solutions at Alcatel-Lucent's CloudBand™ Innovation Center

Singapore - 19 June, 2014 - Cellwize, the innovative Self-Organizing Network (SON) solutions provider, today announced that it has joined Alcatel-Lucent's CloudBand™ Ecosystem community to help champion Network Function Virtualization (NFV). Working closely with Alcatel Lucent's NFV initiative, Cellwize's centralized-SON product, elastic-SON™ manages and automates mobile operator networks.

CloudBand Ecosystem Program was established in 2013 to aid NFV innovation, share knowledge and help service providers get it to NFV faster. Cellwize has been testing and developing its own NFV enabled SON solution on Alcatel-Lucent's CloudBand distributed cloud environment at the CloudBand Innovation Center. In addition, Alcatel-Lucent's team of NFV experts has provided training, support and access to this unique infrastructure and workspace. Cellwize can now use this infrastructure to demonstrate how its own elastic-SON™ and Value-Driven SON™ solutions work with the CloudBand NFV Platform.

NFV technology allows network operators to move complex applications and services to the cloud. In doing so it provides the agility, efficiency and economics of the cloud to the operators own network. NFV combined with elastic-SON™ or Value-Driven SON™ will provide considerable cost savings in terms of OPEX for network operators and further simplify network management.

Valerie Noto, Director of Alcatel-Lucent's CloudBand Ecosystem said: "NFV requires an open multi-vendor approach and a high degree of collaboration and exchange between all contributors in the value chain. Cellwize's SON solutions are hardware agnostic to work in cross-technology networks. This makes Cellwize well suited to help our community quickly advance and innovate NFV solutions. We are glad to have them on board."

"NFV is a key technology for operators as it will help reduce costs and simplify network management. Alcatel-Lucent is really helping to pioneer this new and important technology" said Ofir Zemer, CEO of Cellwize. "As the first SON provider in the Alcatel-Lucent CloudBand Ecosystem Program, we can quickly broaden and strengthen our SON offering, to provide a comprehensive SON solution for NFV."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
