NSN demonstrates LTE at Transform Africa Summit

Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) is demonstrating LTE technologies at Transform Africa Summit (TAS) 2013 in Kigali, Rwanda, between 28 and 31 October 2013.

The company is demonstrating its LTE infrastructure, including its Single RAN Advanced, Liquid Applications, showing how these technologies can be used for eHealth, eLearning and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications.

NSN’s superior mobile broadband technologies can enable operators in Africa to provide reliable, faster mobile broadband services for government organizations, enterprises and individuals to transform the continent.

“Since the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has been greatly increasing in the African continent, a reliable, advanced mobile broadband infrastructure is the need of the hour to further drive the socio-economic development here,” said Noel Kirkaldy, head of technology, MEA business region, NSN.

As of today, NSN has 94 commercial references for the delivery of LTE with leading customers in advanced mobile broadband markets such as Korea, Japan, Northern Europe and the United States. NSN’s LTE technology can enable operators to provide up to 150 Mbps speed in commercial mobile broadband network for subscribers to enjoy clearer voice calls, better internet connectivity and high-quality mobile data services.

At the summit, NSN is demonstrating its LTE network infrastructure including its Single RAN Advanced platform which is based on Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station. The base station is capable of supporting multiple standards including GSM, 3G and LTE, providing a smooth and cost-efficient technology evolution. With its compact and energy-efficient nature, the base station can reduce capital and operating costs for the operators in Africa, as well as enable smooth refarming.
