Hetnet Software To Automate Wireless IP Network And Virtualized Mobile Core Functions

Initial release of Wireless IP Backhaul Automation for Mobile Operators basis for end-to-end management

EL DORADO HILLS, Calif., Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hetnet Software, today announced a product suite for Mobile Operators to Automate Wireless Network Management, and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). Hetnet Software lets operators automate significant pieces of their network management environment in a user-friendly and cost-effective package enabling lower operating costs while networks are expanding in complexity, density and services. While their initial product, HetnetIP focuses on automating IP Backhaul configuration and management, it also lays the foundation for expanding automation to physical and virtual environments across the entire network utilizing Openstack for NFV and SDN integration, in addition to more sophisticated SON and user experience applications as well as virtualized service chaining.  Hetnet Software is involved in a number of network operator trials including automating non-line-of-sight backhaul link configuration and integration into real-time monitoring and healing applications.

"Software that enables the unattended or automatic integration of small cells into not only the RAN environment but the backhaul and core is imperative in order to ensure small cells can be economically deployed, tuned and operated," said Mark Kelley, CEO OpenRan. "Hetnet Software's wireless IP backhaul automation solution takes SON into the area of backhaul for the first time making IP backhaul implementation cost effective and error-free."

"As Mobile Operators are experiencing unprecedented growth in data network usage, it is driving mass densification and service virtualization projects in all major markets, especially those deploying LTE," said Ed Kurzenski, COO of Hetnet Software. "They are looking for ways to accommodate growth and service expectations, combined with the ability to customize services, all with the objective of keeping operating expenses as low as possible. The only way to do this is network automation."

Hetnet Software's IP backhaul configuration and management automation forms the foundation for more sophisticated end-to-end automation capabilities including management of physical and virtual LTE core and SGI applications including network and service levels across physical, virtual and cloud based network environments.

For Mobile Providers, some key benefits are:

  • Seamless web based single screen system capable of managing their entire IP network environment for traditional FCAPs.
  • Leverage easy-to-implement automation that spans both standards based (LTE access environment) and non-standards based (2 and 3G legacy networks and backhaul). In essence to develop self-optimization capabilities anywhere needed in the carrier environment.
  • Basis of a single centralized SON system that can manage end-to-end wireless IP network management that orchestrates FCAPS automation and self-healing across legacy and new network elements and services
  • Integrated management of NFV capabilities (MANO), SDN controller automation and IP network to provide end-to-end service management and service chaining orchestration. 

Availability and Pricing

Hetnet Software's IP Backhaul configuration management solution, HetnetIP, is available today and is uniquely offered in SAAS or licensed model. Demonstrations are available upon request.

Hetnet Software

Hetnet Software offers solutions for Mobile Operators to cost efficiently manage their legacy and their new dense, complex and virtual network while responding quickly to consumer demand for new services. Hetnet Software, from Dorado Software, is an integrated network and service management solution that automates network management, like SON in a 4G Hetnet, and supports NFV.  For more information about Hetnet Software, visit http://www.hetnetsoftware.com or send an email to [email protected]

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...
