MWC 2014: NSN to focus on telecoms’ data needs

At the Mobile World Congress 2014, telecom equipment vendor Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) will focus on addressing telecom operators’ data needs. As per today’s announcement, NSN is not bringing anything revolutionary to the market.

NSN on Monday said it will announce its new solutions will benefit telecoms which are rolling out TD-LTE and LTE-Advanced, small cells, CEM and Liquid Applications.

The company’s new launches are aimed at helping telecom operators handle higher data volumes and customer expectations for performance as they get ready to deliver 1 GB of personalized data per user per day by 2020 profitably.

It seems that NSN does not have any new products or solutions to offer to telecom operators. Lack of innovation has already affected NSN’s revenue.

Three telecom equipment vendors from Europe — NSN, Ericsson and Alcatel are continuing to face tough competition from two Chinese vendors including ZTE and Huawei. Interestingly, both Huawei and ZTE are yet to announce their plans for MWC 2014.

NSN will also highlight services that deliver KPIs that are moving ever closer to 100 percent for network and service operations, as well as solutions that help operators understand and plan for the impact of OTT applications and gauge and boost the KPI that matters most for operator executive boards.

Other announcements will demonstrate how NSN is moving beyond network virtualization towards cloud-based technology, extending its Services capabilities and developing a security ecosystem to ensure both network and end-user security.

According to NSN projections, by 2020 global traffic will be 1,000 times that of 2010 levels.

Phil Twist, head of NSN portfolio marketing, said: “The advances we are launching will give operators a performance edge across their technology, operations and business and help them boost revenues at the same time. You’ll see and hear much more this month about our new capabilities for enabling and delivering performance for a world in motion.”
