To meet the growing data demand and maintain the high-quality subscriber experience, operators must build networks with the future in mind. This means creating large data capacity reserves in a particular sector or location to cover demand growth until the next opportunity to increase capacity. BxCO can harness this otherwise underutilized capacity by using it to serve devices that normally would use a heavily loaded network.
BxCO adds this completely new dimension to maximize the utilization of existing network capacity. It automatically reaches across network boundaries to better balance load in two networks or two independent layers in a single network.
Reduction of network expansion cost and better subscriber experience are the benefits of balancing the load using BxCO. Optimally moving mobile devices from a loaded cell to an alternative network improves connection speeds and also reduces the need for CAPEX.
High demand growth has led to very uneven and generally low utilization of existing network capacity for all mobile network operators (MNOs). BxCO increases network efficiency. This results in a combination of large savings in CAPEX and OPEX as well as improvements in the connection speeds experienced by subscribers. MNOs can decide what mix of these benefits is right for them.
BxCO automatically optimizes how mobile devices connect across two or more independent network layers. Advanced optimization, AI and machine learning assure that each mobile device will be served by the eNodeB in the network layer that achieves the best cost savings and user experience improvement.
BxCO’s net effect is moving a MNO's underutilized LTE capacity from areas where average network load percentages are low to locations where the percentage load is high and additional capacity is needed. BxCO can do this when two overlapping networks or independent network layers can be engaged in the optimization. BxCO provides this service and benefits with three components: our planning service, optimized control, and BxMarket functionality.
We will work with you to evaluate BxCO opportunities for your network and subscribers. Based on detailed modeling of your network using industry standard tools and BandwidthX components, we can create detailed scenarios demonstrating the benefit of optimizing your network together with potential cooperation candidates.
Based on the results of the modeling, your objectives and overall network plans, we will work with you and your SON system vendor to implement the control enhancements that provide the real time optimization using industry standard network parameters.
Operators in many countries are already engaged in static sharing of portions of their networks to produce efficiencies and lower CAPEX relating to network coverage. With BxCO these benefits can be expanded to dense, urban areas where the primary focus is on capacity and subscriber experience.
In BxCO’s dynamic optimization, great benefits can be achieved with very limited cooperation. BxMarket provides the control that lets each participant control exactly what benefits they seek and what are the limits of the optimization.
This need for intelligent network selection and dynamic control policies has led to the expanded scope of BxMarket, and its ability to optimize all kinds of network use across network boundaries.
