The value additions to NSN’s new Liquid Radio software addresses telecom operators’ capacity demands.
Main benefits to telecom service providers include: operators can move toward 100 times greater WCDMA uplink capacity to meet growing capacity demand; by releasing 35 percent of GSM spectrum for use by WCDMA and LTE, ensure full utilization of LTE networks and spectrum.
Stephan Litjens,head of LTE product management, Nokia Siemens Networks, says the new features build on its existing Liquid Radio Software Suites, which are field-proven across the globe with more than 100 operators using them commercially to adapt network resources to unpredictable mobile broadband demand.
Wireless operators can offer high quality mobile services with fewer sites and infrastructure, using available spectrum as efficiently. In addition, they also help provide the necessary capacity for new mobile broadband services and applications.
The introduction of the new Liquid Radio LTE Software Suite anticipates the evolution of LTE multiband networks.
