Outsourcing of RAN Planning & Optimisation
An operator was looking for more cost efficient and agile organisation for RAN planning & optimisation. The operator was not fully satisfied with ability to secure the targets and timelines of the network planning in times when the workload increases. On the other hand, cost pressure would demand to downscale the resources in times with less workload, which would not be easy with a permanent inhouse team.
Omnitele was requested to take full responsibility of the operator RAN planning and optimisation, and to provide a managed service that decreases the overall costs while securing the quality targets. Further the service had to be agile to promptly upscale the team for bigger assignments such as network rollout, and to execute without delay any add-hoc analyses such as network performance assessments and benchmarks.
To achieve the flexibility and agility to the RAN planning and optimisation, Omnitele utilised it’s wide pool of radio network engineers and telecom consultants. The minimum team size is guaranteed to handle daily planning and optimisation tasks, and additional resources are quickly allocated on demand basis from the rest of the organisation. Any additional add-hoc analyses are promptly organised from Omnitele expert pool. With this flexibility and variety of telecom experts, Omnitele can also secure the agreed quality targets in any circumstances.
Scope of Work of the RAN planning & Optimisation was:
- Radio network planning of 2G/3G/4G/5G
- Capacity management by Omnitele predictive analytics
- SLA based quality targets
Facilitation of the RAN planning & Optimisation:
- Minimum assigned team of radio network planners for daily work
- Additional planning experts available for upscale when needed
- ~20 telecom consultants available for add-hoc assignments
- Tooling for network planning, performance management and performance measurement of 2G/3G/4G/5G networks
Scope changes & ad-hoc tasks resourced without delay
