In their 2062 setting, George and Jane Jetson lived lives of incredible leisure because of their labor saving devices. Yet the concept of self-organizing networks is already being discussed as a key technology requirement for LTE networks.

The self-organized Jetsonian concept would vastly reduce network operations costs by automating process to handle high-volume, low-cost services efficiently, possibly separating OSS from BSS forever.

But why should self-organizing networks be limited to 4G? In this week’s featured article, CIMI Corp. President Tom Nolle – Jetsonesque in his futuristic visions – ponders extending the concept of self-organizing networks beyond LTE.

Read it. It will expand your mind.
