Nokia Solutions Networks is implementing a hands-on innovation approach to enable mobile broadband networks to profitably deliver 1 gigabyte of personalized data per user per day by 2020. With our Technology Vision 2020 for future mobile networks, we are helping operators deal with extreme traffic growth, simplify network operations and provide the ultimate personal gigabyte experience. To enable 1000 times more capacity, for example, we are driving innovation projects together with mobile operators and industry partners. To learn more, register for our “1000x more capacity” webinar on September 12, 2013.

Reinvent telcos for the cloud
NSN chief architect Volker Ziegler explains what is needed to build the telco cloud and the benefits it brings.
Six pillars of our Technology Vision 2020
The industry not only faces a massive increase in data demand, it also needs to boost profitability and personalized experience at the same time. To meet this challenge, we are implementing the following six pillars of our Technology Vision 2020, which have been defined in cooperation with operators globally:
Personalize network experience to enable innovative business models
Reduce latency to milliseconds to enable real-time user experience
Reinvent the Telcos for cloud to get the required lean agility
Teach networks to be self-aware to manage the growing complexity
Flatten total energy consumption for improved efficiency and sustainability

No, says NSN’s Lauri Oksanen, VP Research & Technology, Technology & Innovation. With the hands-on approach of our Technology Vision 2020, we are helping operators meet the capacity challenge.
Our paper on 'Enhance mobile networks to deliver 1000 times more capacity by 2020' is available now.
LTE for public safety white paper
LTE is a state-of-the-art broadband communication system that is being deployed globally based on a vibrant ecosystem with hundreds of manufacturers and operators. It meets the needs of public safety organizations for a high speed data system, with such organizations beginning deployment using functionality through Release-11. The greater 3GPP community is committed to evolving the standards to further meet public safety needs in Release-12 and beyond. Nokia Siemens Networks is working closely with public safety organizations to ensure the standards will meet or exceed the needs of public safety first responders. Read the full paper.
Curt Wong is in the role of specialist at Nokia Siemens Networks for 3GPP SA2 standardization work with primary focus on the voices services over LTE, including IMS, emergency aspects, Group Communication over LTE, and Interworking with legacy 2G and 3G networks. He has been with Nokia Network since 1995 working in several different roles and technologies. He has a B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and an M.S. in telecommunications from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas.
Brian T. Kassa leads Nokia Siemens Networks efforts to apply 3GPP Long Term Evolution Technology to Public Safety Broadband and the Battlefield. Over the past 15 years, he has helped some of the largest wireless carriers in the world design, build, converge and commercialize their networks. This experience, when coupled with his 22 years of first responder and incident management experience have given him unique insight to both the network and the needs of its users. Brian holds a Bachelors Degree in Computer Engineering from Clemson University and an MBA in Technology Management from the University of Phoenix.

Al has been working in the wireless telecom industry since 1989 and has been directly involved in all current major cellular technologies for the past 24 years. Al is located in the Chicago area and holds a MS degree in Electrical Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology and a BS in Computer Engineering from Cornell University.
Innovation competition hits the sweet spot
What happens when you give Israeli innovators a chance to shine with ideas that create business opportunities and speed up innovation? The winners of the recent Israel Innovation Competition provide the answer with a long list of innovations that shows the value of an open environment to encourage and stimulate new ideas and translate them into concrete software solutions. Read our blog to find out who were the winners.
Winning LTE core network architecture research
OpenFlow for software defined networking, wireless mesh, distributed hierarchical caching, adaptive bit-rate streaming… The list could go on, but the common denominator for these terms in this context is the development of new network architectures and connectivity concepts for the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network. So why should you care?
Using wider signal bandwidth in future radio transceivers
The exponential rise in data traffic and the subsequent need to increase capacity is driving radical changes in cellular network elements, placing new demands on their various subsystems.
One simple and straightforward way of increasing capacity is to widen the signal bandwidth, which in turn poses new problems when designing radio transceivers.
In addition to the challenges of a larger bandwidth, further complications are created in Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) systems by the noise spectral content introduced by Power Amplifier non-linearities. These may occur in the Receiver Band and thus threaten to reduce receiver sensitivity. Traditional ways of correcting this problem, such as more effective duplex filters, are both costly and bulky, reducing the number of radios that can be fitted on a site.
In this paper, we propose a method of relaxing the filter requirements while still meeting the needs of both the TX and RX chains. Read the full paper.
Sandro Lanfranco joined Nokia Networks in 1998, where he started to work on radio hardware, focusing on PA design and architectures for base stations. During his career he has been involved with both product programs and research/innovation concepts. Currently he works in Research and focuses on technologies enabling radio enhancements for macro/micro/pico/femto BTSs.
Bandwidth Proximity Control: a recipe for low latency networks. White paper available now
Low latency is the key to instant satisfaction for mobile broadband users. Latency has a major impact on services and applications, such as mobile video communication, live video streaming and multi-player gaming. It may be impossible to predict the kinds of applications that people will be using in five years’ time, but one thing is certain – we’re going to see more emphasis on real-time performance in mobile services.
Three key factors need to be addressed to create a low-latency mobile network: bandwidth, proximity and control. They are discussed in the paper. Latency is an opportunity for network operators to change the game in content delivery by enhancing the customer experience of latency-sensitive applications. Read the full paper.
How QoS differentiation enhances the OTT video streaming experience
Cellular networks are more and more impacted by the growing popularity of Over the Top (OTT) video streaming services. Consumers expect a high quality experience when watching OTT video streams, whether it be short form YouTube videos or long form movies or television programs from providers such as Netflix.
Nokia Siemens Networks has studied how Netflix video streaming quality can benefit from the use of QoS mechanisms over a LTE network as congestion levels increase. Lab results show that QoS mechanisms are an effective tool for operators to provide differentiated delivery of video streaming services transporting which creates the opportunity for operators to participate in the mobile video value chain beyond just basic transport.
