An Automatic Neighbour Relations Reality Check

Presented by

Karsten Gaenger, NETSCOUT Product Line Manager

About this talk

With service providers investing heavily in advanced LTE and 5G technologies, skyrocketing cell growth magnifies technical complexities and creates long-term productivity challenges for RAN teams responsible for assuring subscriber handover performance. As neighbouring cell relationships are at the center of call retainability and end-user service quality, service providers rely on Automatic Neighbour Relation (ANR) functionality to avoid time-consuming and manual configuration tasks. Unfortunately, most traditional ANR solutions fall short when it comes to accurately reflecting and assuring the subscriber experience. In this session NETSCOUT technology experts will: -Examine the business and customer impacts of cell neighbour under- and over-provisioning. -Identify the common pitfalls associated with conventional ANR methods. -Explore the benefits of a vendor-agnostic solution with stateful analysis and advanced data sets for machine-learning objectives. -Outline the importance of “re-farming” and reprovisioning to serve changing coverage and capacity goals.
