Enea has launched Session Congestion Supervisor (SCM), providing the reassurance that the event can result in reductions in cellular cell congestion by as a lot as 15%, and create extra radio entry community (RAN) capability to ship 25% extra streaming video, with out operators having to spend money on new infrastructure.
The telecoms software program supplier mentioned the service represents the cellular trade’s first cellular optimisation answer that may dynamically increase 4G and 5G subscriber high quality of expertise (QoE) for every particular person consumer session.
SCM displays a number of site visitors and community parameters in real-time and creates a per-user session congestion rating to take proactive and automated remedial motion based mostly on its severity. By making use of optimisation to the entire particular person session, SCM is designed to ship community effectivity with out requiring any management aircraft or RAN integration. This, mentioned Enea, is a key consideration for operators who need to maximise their present 4G infrastructure whereas prioritising 5G investments.
By use of Session Congestion Supervisor, Enea mentioned the outcome will probably be that cellular operators can now ship excellent QoE with pinpoint accuracy to particular anonymised subscribers – earlier than they expertise congestion. Enea’s proprietary algorithms establish particular periods that require QoE enchancment and ship pre-emptive optimisation.
In what it mentioned was an vital characteristic, Enea added that SCM “fiercely” combats the darkening of networks offering important visibility to chop via encrypted site visitors flows in actual time. It intelligently adjusts encrypted adaptive bitrate streams to scale back affect on the RAN, that means that subscribers profit from constant video high quality.
Explaining the necessity for such options, Analysys Mason principal analyst Gorkem Yigit mentioned: “4G networks will nonetheless carry greater than half of the world’s cellular site visitors in 2024. Operators might want to squeeze extra from their 4G networks to get some respiration house whereas they ramp up on 5G. In the meantime, video is on observe to be practically three-fourths of cellular community site visitors by subsequent 12 months. Which means cellular operators should present a persistently nice video expertise over present infrastructure, or threat dropping clients – and cash.”
SCM is a part of Enea’s Congestion Administration answer suite that additionally helps cell-based congestion detection utilizing proprietary machine studying expertise. SCM has already been deployed by EMEA cellular operators to maximise their 4G community and increase QoE.
Commenting on what the answer will be capable of do, Roland Steiner, senior vice-president of Enea’s telecom enterprise unit mentioned: “Operators are busy investing and priming their 5G deployments, however 4G will do a lot of the heavy lifting for years to return – so operators have to sweat their 4G property.
“Conventional site visitors administration options react to indicators of congestion on a per-flow foundation,” he mentioned. “We use extra intelligence to handle congestion persistently via the consumer session and assist operators handle subscribers’ insatiable urge for food for video.”
