The newly published Smart Labs booklet is packed full of the latest research results and technology application ideas, giving an insight into the exciting work being performed by Nokia Siemens Networks’ innovation facilities.
The new booklet outlines research in mobile applications, mobile broadband, battery lifetime and performance optimization.
Batteries to broadband
Maximizing smartphone battery life is a must for users. Yet with devices having to deliver always-on mobile broadband and process high levels of signalling, new ways are needed to reduce the power drain on their batteries. The report looks at the latest innovations in this area, including Network Controlled Fast Dormancy and Discontinuous Reception (DRX) paging cycle’, which has helped to increase the battery life of a typical smartphone under real 3G and LTE network conditions.
Helping operators to boost network performance
Another topic covered in the booklet is the new Smart Lab Performance Advisor (SPA) service, which enables mobile operators to find the ideal balance between the best user experience and the lowest impact on network performance. VoIP on smartphones, smart apps, and a look at the work of the Smart Lab in Madrid are also covered.
The Smart Lab booklet is a fascinating and quick overview of some key innovations and how Nokia Siemens Networks is helping mobile operators to analyze and improve their network performance to deliver better user experiences with smartphones and apps.
Nokia Siemens Networks Smart Labs act as incubators of ideas and centers of research that help operators to understand fast-changing communications markets and use this knowledge in profitable new ways.
