Abstract

5G networks deployment is already a commercial reality, while the specification groups move towards 5G standalone standardization. With the need for network slicing and edge computing capabilities – and therefore, inherent SDN and NFV adoption in a cloud environment –, these networks’ complexity will require some degree of automation. The concept of Self-Organizing Networks (SON) is a trend for next-generation systems, as it is already used in the mobile radio access network (RAN) context. In this work, we will present a self-configuration (one of the four basic self-* properties of SON) system basic design proposal, within the context of Self-Organizing Networks Architecture (SONAr) framework. We will discuss the generic system architecture and present one practical application example, using the self-configuration platform to automatically configure the network to receive an eNodeB (4G base station) edge component. All the system design is being conceived to work on a carrier-grade production environment, with application versatility, reliability, and scalability.
