The Xpacity platform is a cloud service that unlocks existing underutilized cellular capacity. Leveraging powerful multi-dimensional algorithms and cloud computing, the service intelligently calculates mobile network baseline settings to find the best combinations of cell selection parameters. Xpacity improves current network management functions through new and different optimization strategies enabling the existing systems to do an even better job.
The result is a more effective network configuration, which translates into significant performance improvements and savings for mobile network operators (MNOs). By maximizing the use of existing capacity, MNOs can meet demand growth without additional network investment.
Xpacity offers several features and benefits to its participants, including:
Xpacity increases network efficiency. Optimally moving mobile devices from a loaded cell or frequency to a better alternative improves coverage and performance. This also creates significant capacity and throughput improvements as well as opportunities for dramatic CapEx savings and wholesale revenue. MNOs can decide what mix of benefits is right for them. With the savings, operators are able to better deploy capital and spectrum for 5G rollouts.
Unlike other tools, Xpacity considers both signal and load conditions, as well as their combined effect on throughput across all frequencies and cells in mobile networks. Advanced optimization, sophisticate algorithms, and a massive cloud platform assure that each mobile device will be served by the cell in the network layer that achieves the best cost savings and user experience improvement. The system conducts millions of “what-if” comparisons and establishes the optimal combination of baseline settings for the cell selection parameters. The solution works without direct integration into MNO’s real time network control system. It provides for each peak load situation a combination of parameters that will be recalculated once a month.
Xpacity’s net effect is moving a MNO's underutilized LTE capacity from areas where average network load is low to locations where the load is high and additional capacity is needed. Monthly setting updates keep demand growth and network changes in check.
Analysis Tool lets participants create detailed scenarios and see in advance exactly what effect Xpacity will have on their subscribers and network.
Cross Optimizer uses sophisticate algorithms to calculate the needed set of 3GPP parameters to maximize speeds and reduce loads.
Control parameters consist of a calibrated baseline of cell selection settings. New parameters are entered monthly through the OSS or SON.
XpacityMULTI (XM) is a cloud software service that enables intelligent load-based movement of mobile traffic across different operator LTE and 5G networks. Leveraging the Xpacity platform, the solution offers flexible tools to optimize device and demand distribution between two or more mobile network operators (MNOs). This creates significant additional capacity and throughput improvements as well as opportunities for dramatic CapEx savings and wholesale revenue.
For years, operators in many countries have been engaged in static sharing of portions of their networks to produce efficiencies and lower CapEx relating to network coverage. Growing financial pressures have encouraged many MNOs to turn to active network sharing in less populated areas. However, in more populated areas – where capacity is often most strained – active network sharing or national roaming is complicated for competitive and regulatory reasons. XpacityMULTI has been developed specifically to take advantage of sharing opportunities in dense urban areas while preserving the competitive differentiation of each mobile operator. This makes it a desirable alternative or complement to active network sharing and national roaming.
Upgrading from X1 to XM is straightforward and multiplies the savings and performance improvement. With XM, the optimization can take full advantage of the diversity between two independent networks.Learn More
