Consumes 59 watts per 100,000 subscribers
Nokia Siemens Networks has launched a new packet core network server (NS), Flexi NS, which the company says has a low power consumption, consuming only 59 watts per 100,000 subscribers.
Nokia Siemens said that the new packet network server allows operators to serve more smart device users due to its signal handling capacity, and will be available for commercial deployment by the end of 2010.
The Flexi NS is based on industry-standard ATCA-based platform, and will work both as SGSN (Serving GPRS Support Node) for 2G/3G/HSPA networks and as MME (Mobility Management Entity) for LTE.
Nokia Siemens Networks head of converged internet connectivity Petri Poyhonen said, the new Flexi NS helps operators lower investment, as a single network server allows them to serve more smart device users.
