AIRCOM to Drive 4G Evolution

AIRCOM International, an independent provider of network and data management tools and services, has joined the Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Alliance to contribute to the development of an ecosystem for next generation broadband networks and services and to establish an open platform for innovation in mobile broadband technologies.
 
Officials said the new partnership combines the insight of NGMN partners with AIRCOM's expertise in end-to-end network planning, sharing, outsourcing and operational support system (OSS) optimization for IP and cellular networks.
 
AIRCOM will focus on driving forward the next generation of 4G network technologies such as Long Term Evolution (LTE) and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX).
 
Steve Bowker, business development director at AIRCOM, said that the NGMN Alliance partnership places the company on a global platform among the world's leading operators and gives them an opportunity to showcase their thought-leadership, know-how and expertise in the advancement of the technologies of the future.
 
“Our experience in multi-vendor LTE field testing and backhaul optimization, coupled with our existing software solutions in legacy 2G/3G networks will directly assist NGMN initiatives such as the Operational Efficiency Project and the evolution towards Self Organizing Networks (SON),” Bowker said.
 
AIRCOM also recently announced the launch of a training program “K031 – Migration to Long Term Evolution,” designed specifically to improve the general awareness and technical know-how of service operators who are interested in looking towards LTE as the platform for future mobile networks.
