Nokia Siemens Networks unveils new approach to mobile broadband

Nokia Siemens Networks is setting in motion a series of portfolio launches and updates this month, which it says will culminate in a new approach to delivering mobile broadband, charting a path for operators to be able to profitably provide a gigabyte of personalized data per day for every user by 2020. 

“Over the next eight years the rise in mobile data traffic will accelerate much faster than revenues,” said Marc Rouanne, head of mobile broadband at Nokia Siemens Networks. “We are focused on helping operators deliver mobile broadband profitably in the face of this challenge. In October, we will share with operators how they can meet this demand, delight their users, and still make money.”

Industry analyst consensus predicts that overall operator revenue from all services will experience single digit growth until 2020. Yet, mobile broadband volumes are increasing dramatically; with data consumption per subscription doubling every two years, driving an eight fold increase in cellular traffic over the next 5 years. With little in the way of additional revenue to fund growth, Nokia Siemens Networks has tasked itself with the challenge of helping operators deliver a gigabyte of personalized data, per user, per day profitably.

During October, Nokia Siemens Networks will launch new capabilities, software and services within the company’s Liquid Net and Customer Experience Management portfolios. These innovations, combined with its existing portfolio, will lead to a new approach to how operators can ensure they make smarter investments in their network that enhance the levels of service users enjoy.
