Elisa Automate participated MWC in Shanghai


[Jul 3, 2018]

During last week of June 2018, Elisa Automate was present at the yearly Mobile World Congress in Shanghai to discuss the latest in mobile network automation. The Mobile World Congress in Shanghai features more than 550 exhibitions and attracts more than 60 000 visitors every year.

At the congress, Elisa Automate met with innovative operators, interested in getting more out of their mobile network investments, reducing the increasing cost of mobile network complexity, and providing better service quality for their customers. The visit to MWC Shanghai follows Elisa Automate’s trip to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year. During that event, Elisa Automate were present on Red Hat’s stand, demonstrating the Elisa SON solution that is offered to operators.

The Head of Elisa Automate, Kirsi Valtari reported from the MWC Shanghai that “The interest for automating mobile networks is currently very high. We believe that operators are responding to the increase in mobile data growth by trying to handle their networks automatically. At MWC, we had the opportunity to meet with Asian operators and discuss their wishes related to automation. It’s been very successful.”

Elisa Automate’s trip to Asia took place at the same time as the operator Elisa last week became the first operator in the world to launch a commercial 5G network. The need for automation of the mobile networks rises as the complexity and number of network elements increases. Elisa Automate has positioned the operator for the upcoming 5G era.
