Nokia Siemens claims liquid radio GSM software can double 3G and 4G data rates

By Telecom Lead Team: Nokia Siemens Networks announced
that mobile operators re-farming GSM frequency to support 3G and 4G rollouts
can free up to 30 percent of their spectrum using its Liquid Radio GSM software

The Liquid Radio GSM software suite that is commercially
available globally enables operators to reduce total cost of ownership by 20
percent and double average 3G and 4G data speeds. GSM only network operators
can quadruple their capacity while lowering energy costs by 14 percent.

When used with the company’s Flexi Multiradio base
stations, the software suite makes more efficient use of the spectrum allocated
to GSM services, while improving network quality. This frees up valuable
spectrum to either increase GSM capacity or to deliver 3G and 4G mobile
broadband at higher data rates.

Our multiradio equipment helps operators manage the
unpredictable fluctuations in network coverage and capacity demands as mobile
broadband users switch across applications and devices on-the-move,” said
Thorsten Robrecht, head of Network Systems product management, Nokia Siemens

With the new software suite, operators can make their
network fluid, further optimize their Flexi Multiradio Base Station radio
equipment, improve network efficiency and get more out of their spectrum.
Moreover, with re-farming, rollout of mobile broadband services is easier, more
cost efficient, and this can potentially help increase revenues.

The Liquid Radio based GSM software suite comprises of
five Nokia Siemens Networks’ innovated features. Mobile operators can deploy
these along with the company’s award winning Flexi Multiradio Base Station
family and Multicontroller for improved coverage and adequate capacity, and
faster, more cost efficient evolution of mobile broadband.

Nokia Siemens Networks also offers planning and
implementation services for re-farming 3G on 900 MHz and 4G LTE on 1800 MHz to
help operators increase network capacity and improve network performance.
Having supported over 65 percent of commercial 3G 900 MHz networks, the company
is a leader in re-farming services.
