RAN Automation Report: When the SON sets, the RIC rises
Defined by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) at the beginning of this century, SON (self-organizing network) algorithms configure and optimize mobile networks automatically without human interaction. As networks handle vast amounts of traffic and become more and more sophisticated and complex through the addition of several generations, SON algorithms are blended with machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence algorithms. This report tracks the centralized SON (C-SON) software and services revenue market, provides size, forecast and vendor market shares, and analyzes the evolution of C-SON modules and use cases becoming apps in the RAN Inteligent Controller (RIC) needed in open RAN, open virtual RAN, and software defined RAN (SD-RAN) architectures.
