Nokia Networks has showcased some of its technologies in the mobile broadband segment – at the India Innovation Day 2015.
Nokia’s real time live demos highlighted company’s innovations in Telco Cloud (VoLTE/ VoWiFi), 5G, security solutions, predictive marketing, etc.
Arno Koch, head of Business Development, Mobile Broadband, Nokia Networks and Suresh Kalyanasundaram, senior specialist, Technology & Innovation Research, Nokia Networks, spoke to telecom network operators on meeting their future challenges.
Arno Koch, who spoke about evolution to ultra dense networks, discussed how mobile broadband data continues to surge and keeps on doubling every year especially in megacities and the places where people are gathering.
“Telecom operators need to evolve with flexible and scalable network architecture to modernize, re-farm and add more capacity into their macro layer and building new small cells. For doing this, an infrastructure needs to re-engineer to avoid OPEX growth while data keeps adding,” said Arno Koch.
Suresh Kalyanasundaram discussed about FutureWorks including 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) at the Nokia Networks event.
Telco Cloud: VoLTE/ VoWiFi
With the availability of Apple iPhone 6 smartphone which supports VoLTE, telecom operators are moving to support voice on LTE for their existing 2G 3G subscribers. With VoWiFi, telecom operators can provide operator controlled voice over Wi-Fi networks which is useful to provide the indoor coverage when LTE 2G 3G is not in place. During the event, Nokia showcased live VoLTE and VoWiFi calls.
Nokia Networks showcased the 5G E2E explaining a virtual journey into 5G and demonstrated how the path to 5G will not be a single technology but a consistent set of technologies that supports wireless communication for mobile networks. The company also talked about the key challenges in 5G era.
Nokia Networks showcased Nokia Mobile Guard which has an analytics engine that listens and analyzes the traffic for MBB – and searches for patterns that are consistent with malware behavior. With the usage of Mobile Guard, telecom operators can ensure clean network with 24×7 real time monitoring and automated actions in the advent of fraud.
Nokia Networks said these services expand the use of big data insights to network element level which detects and resolves issues before they impact customers.
Nokia Networks showcased the power of combining CEM on Demand with Mobile Marketing Suite for insights into customer experience and behavior and the outcomes measured in-real time, all shown in a user friendly interface.
