Nokia Siemens showcases features for HSPA+ networks to better smartphone performance

Telecom Lead Europe: Mobile broadband equipment and
solutions major Nokia Siemens Networks has showcased new features
for HSPA+ networks that improve smartphone performance.

The Finnish company said it is the first company to
implement a bundle of standards-based features that deliver Continuous Packet
Connectivity (CPC).

These new features are aimed at reducing network
interference. The new features are designed to provide five times more uplink capacity
and allow telecom operators to support more smartphone users on HSPA+ networks.

Nokia Siemens claims that smart device batteries last 15
percent longer while people benefit from a 60 percent increase in data rates.

High network interference levels pose a serious
challenge to network capacity, considerably limiting the number of smartphone
users that operators can add to their HSPA+ networks. These challenges are
magnified with the ongoing rise in smartphone penetration,” said Keith Sutton,
head of the WCDMA business line for Nokia Siemens Networks.

Nokia Siemens said the tests included field testing using
Nokia Siemens’ Flexi Multiradio Base Station with commercial HSPA+ software and
the company’s multicontroller as well as Nokia smartphones. a Nokia Siemens
conducted the tests at its Smart Lab in collaboration with experts from a
tier-1 operator.

We believe CPC is an important step in the continuous
evolution of HSPA. The results prove that this technology is effective in
increasing data speeds improving user experience especially when sharing
pictures and files in social media and other services. This technology also has
a positive impact on battery life. We are looking to adapt CPC to our smart
devices platforms to maximize the benefits it delivers,” said Timo
Joutsenvirta, Smart Devices Technology Marketing, Nokia.
