4G Americas

This white paper is an update of the paper published in 2011, Self-Optimizing Networks: The Benefits of SON in LTE, that addressed the rationale for SON and the description of SON features in 3GPP Releases 8, 9 and 10.

This paper also focuses on the SON use cases that play an important role in the operation of multi-vendor Heterogeneous Networks (Hetnets) comprising of macro and metro cells. Multi-vendor aspects of these SON use cases are addressed in detail. Various architecture options and tradeoffs as it relates to the implementation of SON use cases for multi-vendor HetNets are described as well.
