Nokia Siemens Infuses New Functionalities in GSM Networks
According to the company, the software allows GSM operators to connect up to five times more smart device users to their networks. The software feature allocates radio timeslots on the network for applications according to actual use. This frees data traffic channels for applications that require high throughput.
The software assigns packet radio resources more efficiently, resulting in up to five times higher GSM radio network efficiency for applications that generate small packets, said Nokia Siemens.
The Smart Resource Adaptation feature will be available in the second quarter of 2011.Nokia Siemens Networks is a global enabler of telecommunications services.
Prashant Agnihotri, head of GSM/EDGE product management at Nokia Siemens Networks, said: â€œThough GSM networks have been optimized for data applications that create large packet sizes and require high throughput, about half of the total data volume handled by these networks today is generated by smart applications that actually produce small packets.
â€œIf these applications are not effectively accommodated, they will end up blocking available data traffic channels, resulting in severe network congestion and slower data speeds for users. Last year, we announced software features that would enable simultaneous voice and data calls, coupled with quadruple device management capacity on GSM networks. Now, this new feature addresses radio network trafficâ€™s carrying capacity and efficiency, making our GSM networks portfolio smarter for operators.â€
Will the move benefit GSM operators?
