Nokia Siemens Networks helps North American carriers navigate a future that changes every day
At CTIA, Nokia Siemens Networks features practical solutions to ensure smart delivery, capitalize on insights and enable business agility. Highlights will include how to unleash capacity with its newly announced Liquid Radio architecture, as well as innovations in cloud, machine to machine, personalized quality of service (QoS) and industrialized efficiency.
“Our customers are asking us for practical ways to deal with unprecedented change to their networks and their business and to ensure they continue to add value for their customers. CTIA is a chance to showcase our exciting new developments, all geared to help our carrier customers address these critical business challenges,” said Sue Spradley, head of North America region at Nokia Siemens Networks.
To enable smart delivery of networks, Nokia Siemens Networks will highlight Liquid Radio, its new architecture for mobile networks being launched at CTIA. Liquid Radio is able to direct mobile broadband capacity to where it is needed most, enabling a more economic use of network resources through sharing and redistributing capacity based on user demand.
Nokia Siemens Networks will also showcase its unique end-to-end approach to smart networks, from access to data transport and core technology, as well as its technology – such as the 10 Gbps Flexi Multiradio 10 and Flexi Lite Base Stations, Smart WLAN and LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation. An industry leader in LTE, the company has 31 commercial contracts to date. The company is also demonstrating an HSPA+ data call with peak throughput of over 200 megabits per second (Mbps). The data call will be conducted using its commercial Flexi Multiradio Base Station and Multicontroller platform, once again proving the feasibility of improved HSPA+ speed and capacity.
To capitalize on customer insights, the company’s end-to-end solution covering all aspects of implementing a successful QoS strategy from core to radio will be on display. Demonstrations will feature the end user perspective on how the network can respond to real-time changes in QoS per subscriber and application, and a QoS value tool that shows how changes in service levels and parameters relate to Average Revenue Per User and revenue.
Positioning carriers to be more agile through new approaches, Nokia Siemens Networks will feature its cloud powered services domain, including carrier-grade cloud services that bring scale, real-time capabilities, reliability and flexibility in a service-on-demand/pay-as-you-grow model. Demonstrations will feature: a telco asset marketplace that allows operators to provide developers access to their assets, such as charging and billing capabilities to launch new services; a connectivity trading marketplace called Cloudstreet that helps operators sell and buy connectivity and capacity on-demand; and a machine-to-machine platform based on cloud.
The company will also feature its work on how smart objects extend connectivity beyond people to the “Internet of things,” showing how domestic and industrial devices can be connected and controlled remotely. Applications include smart transport and traffic management for cities; smart energy metering and e-mobility for electric vehicles.
