Nokia Siemens Network has created “Intelligent IP Edge’, a network gateway that enables operators to reduce running costs and improve the user’s mobile broadband experience.

The network uses NSN’s Liquid Net approach and works by building multiple intelligent broadband management functions into its Network Gateway. These enable the network to optimise traffic and content in real time and fulfil fluctuating smartphone user demands.

The technology combines traditional packet core network functions, and adds capabilities such as Evolved Packet Core, service intelligence, video and content optimisation, content caching, policy control enforcement, real-time reporting and trend reporting into a single network element – the Flexi NG. The efficiency and flexibility of managing traffic and content allows for operators to serve more users with existing investments.

“Conventionally, a host of separate network elements would need to be deployed, all carrying their own investment and operational costs, and with each creating a potential point of failure. Flexi NG integrates multiple intelligent solutions that work seamlessly together to ensure a valuable individual experience for mobile broadband users wherever they go and whatever they need,” said Antti Romppanen, head of product management for Mobile Packet Core at Nokia Siemens Networks.

“Whether someone wants to watch a video online or check their email, they’ll enjoy the best performance that the network can deliver,” added Romppanen.

Existing Flexi NG installations can be upgraded to Intelligent IP Edge by adding Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) based hardware and the relevant software.

The new product will be available for commercial deployments in the second quarter of 2012.
