Nokia Siemens Networks press release
Nokia Siemens Networks and Vodafone are to run a trial on a commercial platform of the next generation mobile broadband solution, known as Long Term Evolution (LTE), that meets the modernization plans of Vodafone Germany.
Nokia Siemens Networks is showcasing its end-to-end LTE solution during the Vodafone Innovation Days 2008, taking place in Dusseldorf this week.
Working with partners such as Vodafone, Nokia Siemens Networks is ready to make LTE a commercial reality with further trials in 2009, followed by the first commercial deployments for mobile operators willing to migrate to a flat, all-IP based network. The new flat network architecture, which is scalable and cost-effective, supports mobile broadband multimedia services with extremely high data rates and is ready for handling the anticipated 100-fold traffic growth.
