Arieso Provides Optimisation Solutions for Shared Wireless Networks

First installation with T1 wireless operators a success

Newbury, UK & Atlanta, GA - Arieso, the leading wireless network planning and optimisation provider, has successfully deployed its ariesoACP solution with two Tier 1 wireless operators to achieve shared network optimisation. ariesoACP uses a powerful optimisation algorithm with flexible architecture that can simultaneously analyse and create links between a multitude of networks and technologies. The solution makes it possible for operators to maximise the efficiency and performance of shared networks, and can also be used to optimise non-radio applications, including backhaul costs.

The two operators deployed Arieso's tools and processes during the formation of one of the largest network sharing projects in the mobile communications market. Arieso's ACP tool was used for enabling selection out of thousands of GSM and UMTS sites, with both networks serving over 15 million subscribers. Arieso worked closely with the operators to ensure that the activity was not detrimental to day-to-day operation for either network. The ariesoACP solution was also used to bring a number of planning and database tools together under a single platform to make it easier for the operators to use.

ariesoACP enables efficient, fast and accurate network optimisation. Using multiple, simultaneous modifications of cell parameters, Arieso's solution quickly works through thousands of potential network designs to find a configuration that not only improves shared network performance but also decreases the level of operational expenditure, thus freeing up engineers time and the operators' resources.

Shirin Dehghan, CEO of Arieso, commented: "Network sharing is becoming an increasingly popular option to cut costs. This means fewer base stations are needed, which is better for the environment, and is more cost efficient for the network operators which can lead to cost reductions for the end-users.
However, it dramatically increases the complexity involved in optimising each network with independent business objectives. This is what we solve with our products."

Arieso will be exhibiting the IIR Network Sharing Strategy Forum in Prague in January 2008.
