Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has launched Liquid Net, a new way to deliver broadband that allows an operator to set up its network to self-adapt to meet capacity and coverage requirements based on demand.
NSN said the new approach also aims to significantly improve the quality of broadband services worldwide. “With Liquid Net, operators can unleash the full potential of their existing business assets and create new revenue sources,” the NSN said in a statement on Tuesday.
“Capacity in today’s conventional networks is typically frozen in separate places; at individual base station sites, in parts of the core network that manage voice and data services, or in the optical and IP transport networks,” said Marc Rouanne, head of Network Systems at NSN.
“For example, as much as 50 percent of a conventional core network’s capacity can be dormant. Instead, Liquid Net unleashes frozen network capacity into a reservoir of resources that can flow to fulfill unpredictable demand, wherever and whenever people use broadband.”
Liquid Net channels traffic in the transport network along the path of least resistance and lowest cost between operator sites, it added.
