Nokia Siemens Networks leads packet core market in India


Gurgaon, India –

Handles data traffic for 250 million GSM and 3G subscribers

Nokia Siemens Networks’ intelligent mobile packet core solution has been selected by five mobile operators in India. Recent deals with Bharti Airtel, Datacom, Idea Cellular, Tata Teleservices and Uninor have made the vendor the dominant provider of packet core solutions for GSM and 3G networks. Nokia Siemens Networks carries data traffic from all 22 circles in India serving around 250 million subscribers, the highest in the country. The packet core solution helps reduce the total-cost-of-ownership and maximize future revenue opportunities for operators, while addressing growing bandwidth requirements.

Nokia Siemens Networks’ intelligent mobile packet core network architecture increases efficiency in the core of telecom networks and improves mobile broadband performance through its quality-of-service features. In addition, the data charging capabilities of the company’s mobile gateways opens up new service opportunities to maximize data revenues with differentiated charging and flexible data subscriptions for operators.

“Our intelligent packet core solution converts bit pipes to smart pipes*, allowing operators to offer rich mobile broadband services, and not just data connectivity,” said Ashish Chowdhary, head of customer operations East**, and executive board member at Nokia Siemens Networks. “With this, operators can minimize data delivery cost while securing and maximizing data revenues. In other words, it helps them enter profitable mobile broadband.”

By deploying Nokia Siemens Networks’ packet core solution, mobile broadband subscribers of Bharti Airtel, Datacom, Idea Cellular, Tata Teleservices and Uninor enjoy better data connectivity. The solution includes fair use policies that enable operators to deliver consistent service quality to all subscribers, irrespective of their data usage. Operators can also generate additional revenue by prioritizing subscribers, services and applications with a ‘bandwidth on demand’ offering. In addition, operators can launch and scale up services much faster to address the exponential growth in data traffic as 3G gains popularity in India.

The Nokia Siemens Networks Evolved Packet Core solution consists of Flexi NS (Network Server) and Flexi NG (Network Gateway) and provides unique flexibility with 4D scaling. With convincing capacity in throughput, subscriber density and signaling, operators can manage the data traffic explosion and millions of smart devices. Combined with unparalleled service intelligence, operators can ensure superior end user experience and manage network resource usage to maximize their revenues. Also, the solution is a future proof investment as it provides smooth evolution to LTE with just a software upgrade. All these components are typically configured, monitored and managed by Nokia Siemens Networks’ network management platform, NetAct.

Nokia Siemens Networks also provides managed services to many of the operator circles where it is providing its packet core solution.
