Last week, TechPinas received an invite to attend the media briefing for Nokia Siemens Networks' SON or Self-Organizing Network solution. And we graced the event.
To put it simply, Self-Organizing Network solution aims to aid mobile connectivity service providers in effectively managing their 2G and 3G networks and to quickly adapt and advance to 4G and LTE. LTE is a next generation connectivity option that, while not as popular, is nonetheless a lot faster than both 2G and 3G and has significantly wider coverage.
Nokia Siemens Networks intends to bring SON technology to the Philippines the soonest as it has the potential to greatly improve connectivity in our country given its archipelagic nature, among other things.
Here are a few photos we took from the SON Philippine media brief --
