Enea Openwave’s Machine Learning provides 15% Rise in RAN Capacity

Enea Openwave has reported that its RAN Congestion Manager (RCM) incorporating Machine Learning capabilities is increasing mobile operators’ 4G RAN capacity by 15% in congested locations. This has enabled Enea Openwave customers to cope with the double threat of increased data usage and a slowing down of 5G rollouts, brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting lockdowns globally. This has given operators’ 4G networks a new lease of life without any additional hardware investment.

ENEA“Video streaming continues to experience high year on year growth and that has been exacerbated by the pandemic and resulting lock-downs”, commented Gorkem Yigit, Principal Analyst at Analysys Mason. “Yes, 5G grabs the spotlight, but 4G is carrying the brunt of this traffic. So, while investment in 5G infrastructure continues, operators need intelligent ways to maximize and extend existing 4G network capabilities in the short to medium term – keeping their CAPEX to a minimum.”

John Giere, President of Enea Openwave, said: “We have taken Machine Learning out of the lab and into commercial deployment. Conventional mobile data management requires manual configuration and network investment – it is no longer fit for purpose. Machine Learning has given existing 4G networks the shot in the arm they needed. It can work dynamically without external probes or changes to the RAN, delivering additional capacity at a time that operators most need it.”

8 out of 10 of the world’s largest operator groups have now deployed Enea Openwave Traffic Management technology with a number of them upgrading to incorporate its Machine Learning capabilities, to enable optimal bandwidth utilization and improve 4G Quality of Experience (QoE). The Machine Learning capabilities dynamically predict and identify congestion in the RAN, enabling operators to take immediate remedial action.
