Cellwize, Amdocs To Assist Globe Telecom To Automate Its Network


Cellwize, a mobile network automation and orchestration company, announced a collaboration with Globe, which operates the largest mobile network in the Philippines.

Using Cellwize’s CHIME platform, Globe will be able to establish a cloud-based framework for Radio Access Network (RAN) automation, enabling full control and visibility of its evolving 5G-ready network.

Cellwize’s CHIME AI-based platform provides an open, centralised layer that enables an orchestrated automation ecosystem and delivers end-to-end configuration management, optimisation, and assurance of mobile networks. This combination of capabilities enables mobile operators unprecedented automation and control of the access network.

Globe is modernising and disaggregating its RAN, resulting in a multi-technology, multi-vendor network. This initiative may lead to discrepancies in the network configuration, decreased visibility of assets, licences and features. With Cellwize’s CHIME technology on the cloud, Globe will be able to improve its network parameter audit process, which will help extensively reduce the hours required to rectify these issues. Likewise, this technology will help incorporate network auditing into Globe’s daily processes and provide accurate insights into the network’s configuration lifecycle. This will improve the customer experience while reducing CAPEX/OPEX due to extensive intelligent automation capabilities.

“Cellwize is honoured to have been selected by Globe Telecom in this transition to better manage Globe’s network with our partner Amdocs,” said Ofir Zemer, CEO at Cellwize. “When taking on such a large and groundbreaking project, it is important to have partners you can trust. We are excited to use the cloud capabilities while implementing our technology alongside Amdocs, allowing us to best enhance the Globe network.”

“We have chosen to work with Cellwize and Amdocs as part of our commitment to improving customer experience through network infrastructure optimisation continually. We are confident in the abilities of our partners to assist us in this initiative,” said Ernest Cu, President and CEO of Globe Telecom.

Anthony Goonetilleke, Amdocs Group President of Technology and Head of Strategy at Amdocs, said: “We’re delighted to work with Cellwize and Globe to automate and optimise their RAN, an important strategic focus area that creates improved customer experiences.”
