Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN, formerly known as Nokia Siemens Networks), a global specialist in mobile broadband, reveals the future of Long Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity in the country, revisiting what they presented during the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

With a massive increase in the demand of data, the industry faces a challenge to boost the profitable and personalized needs of the market. NSN is dedicated to meet this growing demand with Technology Vision 2020, a blueprint for the future that features a big data telco platform prototype which analyzes 1 million live messages a second. It ideally provides the ultimate personal gigabyte experience, bridging the best of IT and telco technologies.

NSN challenges this demand by implementing the six pillars of Technology Vision 2020, defined in cooperation with a number of operators across the globe. These are:

  • enable 1000 times more capacity
  • reducing latency to milliseconds
  • teaching networks to be self-aware and personalizing network experience
  • reinventing telco for the cloud which,
  • flattening total energy consumption

According to Leslie Shannon, NSN Senior Strategic Manager, the Philippines is a country that understands technology. With the worldwide smartphone growth, people are in the process of migrating to mobile content. The country places 17th in the smartphone owner rally. This growth beckons the need for faster and reliable connection, and this, according to NSN, where LTE comes into the picture.
