Networks announced that more than 285 operators in more than 115 countries use its packet
core offering to serve mobile broadband.
Of these, over 100 operators use the company’s Liquid
Core based LTE-ready packet core, and are equipping their
networks to support LTE and substantially reduce overall core network cost of
The company has deployed over 2000 packet core network
elements worldwide, and is the number one provider of LTE-ready packet core for
GSM/ EDGE, HSPA, LTE and Wi-Fi based mobile broadband networks.
broadband data traffic is expected to grow nearly 2600 percent by 2015, and
with consumer users set to outpace enterprise users, operators must be able to
support typical consumer usage patterns such as video streaming, gaming and
social networking,” said Thorsten Robrecht, head of Network Systems product
management, Nokia Siemens Networks.
core helps them to do this smoothly and cost-efficiently. Further, operators
can easily evolve their traditional packet core to support LTE using their
existing LTE-ready packet core, and manage all subscriber services. This helps
maximize revenues while lowering cost of delivery of mobile broadband,”
Siemens Networks’ LTE-ready packet core offering is based on its Liquid Core
architecture. This helps operators better manage unpredictable data traffic
demand by flexibly allocating network resources, and channeling capacity where
can enjoy hardware efficiency gains by reducing floor space by up to 80 percent,
reap substantial core network savings for e.g. by lowering energy costs by up
to 65 percent, and maintain the overall quality of subscriber experience.
company’s LTE-ready packet core solution supports GSM/EDGE, HSPA/HSPA+ and
Wi-Fi and LTE/LTE-Advanced. With this, operators can protect their network
investments more easily by evolving their existing packet core networks to
support the latest radio access technologies with a software upgrade.
also evolve to a ‘cloud’ based core network architecture, pool resources such
as processing power and share them among different core network applications
such as applications of LTE-ready packet core, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)
and Mobile Softswitching System.
