SK Telecom’s fully automated SDN mobile network with Accedian ‘nervous system’ tops Best Mobile Technology
Accedian has won the award for ‘Best Mobile Technology Enabler’ in this year’s GSMA GLOMO Awards. Accedian’s award was presented at a ceremony which took place at Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. Accedian was also nominated by the GSMA’s CTO office for overall outstanding mobile technology.
Judged by a panel of independent industry experts, Accedian’s technology was recognized for its ability to provide the real-time, network-wide view of performance and quality of experience (QoE) that acts as the nervous system driving SK Telecom’s software-defined network (SDN), a big data analytics driven, multi-vendor environment. Accedian was credited by the judges as being a foundational technology to deliver exceptional user experience over LTE and 5G networks. Accedian beat strong competition, with the GSMA noting that this year’s awards had more than 930 entrants.
Accedian has worked closely with SK Telecom to enable one of the world’s few large-scale commercial SDNs, and showcase the immense impact that the virtualisation of key technologies and processes (NFV) can have on overcoming technical complexity, driving efficiency, and creating new revenue-generating services. SK Telecom has deployed a fully automated network that optimizes user experience in real-time—without human intervention—bringing notable advancements in machine learning.
