Solutions that offer vastly improved mobile broadband on show in Singapore

Nokia Siemens Networks is demonstrating its leadership in smart device-friendly networks at Crowne Plaza hotel, Changi Airport, during CommunicAsia 2010. On show is a combination of the best hardware, software and expert consulting that together help communication service providers (CSPs) gain an edge over their competitors by focusing on a superior experience for people using smartphones and other mobile devices.  The new LTE and all-IP capability being demonstrated addresses the challenge of delivering profitable, reliable always-on mobile connectivity.

“With an estimated 600 million mobile broadband users globally in 2009, and sales of smart devices increasing across Asia, there is an urgent need for networks that support the surging consumer demand for ubiquitous connectivity to devices of all kinds,” said Ricky Corker, head of Asia-Pacific, Nokia Siemens Networks. “We are the only vendor with a complete ecosystem of LTE and all-IP solutions that bring together voice and data cost-effectively to deliver a faster, more seamless and individualized user experience, while making mobile broadband services profitable for operators.”

Nokia Siemens Networks is showcasing a range of solutions that demonstrate its LTE and all-IP capabilities. Key amongst them is its Self Organizing Network (SON) suite that improves network efficiency by making the most of existing network equipment and automates processes previously done by people, to reduce costs and improve the experience for people using mobile services. Nokia Siemens Networks SON suite for 4G – LTE – is being launched at the event.

Another key highlight is the launch of the Carrier IP Migration Index (CIMIX), which is the industry’s first independent methodology to evaluate a carrier’s position on the IP migration curve. Co-developed by Nokia Siemens Networks and Heavy Reading, CIMIX covers over 30 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that measure the degree of IP penetration and sophistication in the areas of connectivity, service control, operations and end-user services.  CIMIX also captures business performance indicators such as network operating expenses and other areas strongly correlated with IP technology. Visitors to the Nokia Siemens Networks’ CIMIX booth can run a short CIMIX assessment on the spot.

Nokia Siemens Networks provides in-depth demonstrations of today’s most compelling solutions for enhancing end-user experience including:

*    Smart Services for the smart device experience: Network optimization services and quality measures to address network congestion caused by always-on devices and apps.
*    All-IP mobile backhaul for 2G, 3G and LTE that enable end-to-end services, excellent quality of service and easier rollout of differentiated service packages.
*    Customer Insight and Experience: It offers real-time insights into smart device users’ individual needs, quality of experience and satisfaction, to help carriers boost ARPU by delivering an individually targeted experience. It gives CSPs the ability to differentiate their smart device offerings from the competition by utilizing the wealth of subscriber information, instead of merely competing on price.
*    Multi-screen TV: A holistic approach combining fixed and mobile world to enable TV service convergence across different types of IP networks and devices.
