Nokia Siemens Networks Open Core System won the “Best of LTE Core Network Product” at the LTE North America awards ceremony, held Tuesday evening (November 8th) in Dallas, Texas, in conjunction with the LTE North America 2011 event also held this week.
Our Open Core System hardware platform implements core virtualization for all core software applications and is part of Liquid Core, which provides the foundation of the broadband experience. Liquid Core is a key component of Nokia Siemens Networks’ groundbreaking Liquid Net architecture, which provides flexibility across networks to adapt to changing customer needs instantly, using existing resources more efficiently
An independent panel of judges which included executives with AT&T, Comcast, Sprint, U.S. Cellular and Verizon, evaluated how each nominated core network product best contributes to making LTE more attractive to a carrier to deploy. NSN’s Open Core System, which is deployed by more than 90 customers worldwide, was recognized as being exceptional in its area.
By adopting the Open Core System, operators will be prepared for future data traffic growth. The flexibility of the architecture enables them to scale up the core to meet rising demand and introduce LTE functionality into existing hardware via a simple software upgrade.
