ISLAMABAD – Nokia Networks is demonstrating its latest innovations announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in the areas of 5G, security, Liquid Applications, big data and analytics, and Small Cells.
According to the Nokia Networks announcement available to PakistanTribe.com, these demonstrations take place at the company’s Center of Competence in Islamabad and Lahore this week.
Saeed Qadri, Country General Manager, Nokia Networks, said “Pakistan is an important market, and we are committed to helping the country build a reliable, secure, next-generation mobile broadband infrastructure for data traffic that, compared to 2010, will grow 1000 times by 2020, as per Nokia prediction. Accordingly, we are showcasing to all operators here how our latest innovations can help them improve network capacity, speed and coverage for better mobile broadband experience and penetration across the country.”
Nokia Networks demonstrations at a glance:
5G mobile broadband: The company demonstrates future 5G technology for ultra-fast mobile broadband with low latency for applications such as tactile internet, connected cars and industrial automation. It also showcases LTE-M for connected cars, wearables and smart grid connectivity.
LTE-A: Nokia Networks’ TD-LTE-A 3.5 GHz (band 42) radio uses 8-pipe technology that delivers up to two times more downlink and uplink throughput compared to 2-path/4-path radios, enabling larger coverage area and reducing the Total Cost of Ownership by up to 30%. 3.5 GHz 8-pipe radio delivers high 160 W transmit power.
Security: Mobile Guard is a network-based malware detection system for mobile devices. Its analytics engine listens to and analyzes mobile broadband and SMS traffic and searches for malware traffic patterns and profile deviations in smartphones and tablets.
Liquid Applications: Throughput guidance is a use case powered by Liquid Applications. It analyzes user plane and control plane traffic to derive throughput guidance for upstream content sources. For the first time ever, content providers can experience network conditions in real time and adapt their delivery behavior.
Predictive marketing analytics: This offline demonstration showcases the power of combining customer experience insight based on the Customer Experience Index with Mobile Marketing Suite for 1) insights on customer experience and buying behavior, 2) algorithms to predict customer actions, 3) automated interactions and offers with personalized content, and 4) outcome measured in-real time. All of this is shown with a user-friendly interface to illustrate two marketing use cases – personalized up-sell and churn reduction.
Emergency Alert Solution: This demonstration shows a typical emergency alert scenario where one sees how the alert is created, emergency area defined, and subscriber data is used to convey potentially life-saving information and alerts to people known to be in the emergency area.
Additional important demonstrations* include telco cloud, Services for HetNets, 3-D Geolocation, Multi-layer optimization, Small Cell perfection, HetNet solutions, OTT analytics and Dynamic Experience Management.
Did you know?
According to Nokia’s Technology Vision 2020, mobile users will consume up to 1 GB per user per day of personalized data when we reach the year 2020. With enhancements in network and device technology, it is possible to deliver this amount of data profitably without compromising on customer experience.
Voice and communication services on Cloud: The focus of this demonstration is end-to-end services operated in the cloud. Nokia Networks demonstrates VoLTE service with eSRVCC and VoWiFi (base on ePDG) with mobility between LTE and WiFi in a live environment.
Cloud Network Director: The company showcases how Nokia Cloud Network Director configures and deploys new network services (e.g. EPC, VoLTE), integrating them automatically into the network, and how it is able to offload traffic among applications in a hybrid environment, from traditional (bare-metal) to either VMware or OpenStack environment or vice versa.
Nokia Cloud Security Director: This solution enables operators to manage the entire lifecycle of virtualized security services. It features multi-vendor capabilities that allow the operator’s security administrator to automate the deployment of security policies and security functions in cloud and hybrid networks.
Services for HetNets: Nokia’s Services for HetNets optimizes network evolution with the right combination of macro and small cells to optimize operators’ coverage and capacity mixes. The Nokia Networks methodology delivers better HetNet performance such as increased traffic offload, less interference, and better quality – all of which improve operator business cases for small cell investments. 3-D radio and backhaul propagation modeling enable faster and more accurate site selection in the planning phase, with fewer time-consuming site visits. With Services for HetNets, Nokia Networks goes beyond simple network KPIs, using geo-located traffic, device and application profiles, social media, CEM and other data to provide the deepest and best analysis of hotspots.
3-D Geolocation: This solution identifies hotspots for optimal small cell placement and other use cases.
Multi-layer optimization: In this demonstration, the company simulates the impact of load on network performance and takes actions to mitigate and avoid issues.
Small Cell perfection: Here, the company shows automated configuration and optimization of small cells (possibly as part of the HetNet) by implementing a new small cell into an existing network and/or optimizing due to changes in conditions. It shows how quick and easy the cell can automatically be integrated into the network and demonstrates Nokia Networks’ deep understanding of managing complex multi-vendor networks using its hybrid iSON solution. Management tools run in a simulated manner.
HetNet solutions: Nokia Flexi Zone has full software and feature parity with Nokia Networks’ macro base stations and incorporates the same Smart Scheduler and HetNet interference management features for best-in-class performance. Flexi Zone provides an innovative zone architecture that enables capacity upgrades to an existing network without costly reconfiguration. Operators can build almost unlimited capacity and coverage to meet growing demand in outdoor urban areas and indoor locations.
OTT analytics and Dynamic Experience Management: The company showcases how, using CEM on Demand, operators can decide which applications to promote based on both subscriber and operator factors: performance of the application and handset in specific locations, as well as satisfaction (CEI), on the subscriber side – and signaling, adoption rates for various segments, and usage patterns on the operator side. Integration with Service Quality Manager (SQM) to look deeper into the causes of application performance issues and Dynamic Experiencne Management (DEM) shows where things can go in the future with automated prioritization of subscribers and applications based on network resources.
