Allocates radio timeslots on the network for applications according to actual use
Nokia Siemens Networks has developed a new Smart Resource Adaptation software feature that allocates packet resources based on actual use of smart device applications.
The new Smart Resource Adaptation software feature allocates radio timeslots on the network for applications according to actual use.
This frees data traffic channels for applications that require high throughput.
The software assigns packet radio resources efficiently, resulting in increased GSM radio network efficiency for applications that generate small packets.
Nokia Siemens Networks GSM/EDGE product management head Prashant Agnihotri said though GSM networks have been optimized for data applications that create large packet sizes and require throughput, about half of the total data volume handled by these networks is generated by smart applications that actually produce small packets.
"If these applications are not effectively accommodated, they will end up blocking available data traffic channels, resulting in severe network congestion and slower data speeds for users," Agnihotri said.
"The new feature addresses radio network traffic’s carrying capacity and efficiency, making our GSM networks portfolio smarter for operators."
