Customers have always been at the heart of our network, and we’re always committed to understanding their real-time needs. That insight shapes how we design, build and enhance our services, with every decision we make driven towards improving the experience of our customers.
Optimising our 5G network
This focus on optimising customer experience is why, with our partner P.I. Works, we have deployed Centralised Self Organising Network (C-SON) technology into our 5G network. Very simply, this technology automates the management of the network, making it even more efficient and reliable for our customers.
At O2, we were the first UK operator to integrate C-SON into our 2G and 3G ecosystem back in 2016. And we also incorporated distributed SON (D-SON) into our network, where SON functionality is built into the network software itself, enabling even faster customer centric decisions to be made.
Our customers have been reaping the benefits of this enhanced network ever since. These improvements are enabled by SON’s autonomous intelligent capabilities, which include:
A customer-focused future
C-SON alone makes a staggering 22,000 autonomous network decisions every day. Every single one is crucial to delivering a better, faster network for our customers. It means we can give them a better experience, wherever they are.
Using the most innovative technology means we can optimise our 5G network based on customers’ real-time experience. It is a vital step forward in driving improvements across our network. And it is how we know that we are giving our customers exactly what they need.
