Talk about a party! Korea was the place to be at the end of October with back-to-back mega events: the K-Pop concert on 25.10.2013 followed by the Busan International Fireworks on 26.10.2013. NSN was on hand again behind the scenes, as sole supplier to one key operator’s LTE network, ensuring yet another stellar performance for around 700,000 LTE subscribers, who were quick to upload and share in the fun. In fact, data traffic during the event had tripled from the previous year.
The event attracted an unprecedented number of visitors, resulting in a data traffic peak in the LTE network. To guarantee a memorable user experience, NSN tested the system by making VoLTE calls within a four hour time frame. The results showed that NSN provided the highest average VoLTE success rates and call success rates.
NSN built the LTE network using its single RAN platform, which is based on our compact and energy-efficient Flexi Multiradio Base Station. NSN’s Serve-at-Once Traffica monitored the LTE network performance, service quality and use – improving the service quality in real-time for LTE users during the event.
Contributing to the stellar LTE performance was our NetAct network management system for consolidated and effective monitoring, management and optimization of the operator’s LTE network. NSN also provided network planning and optimization services to ensure reliable availability of voice and data connectivity, despite 3x the data traffic compared to last year’s event.
It was a great opportunity to showcase our strength in the LTE arena. By providing a stable telecommunications environment, we ensured lower latency and high download speeds during the event period and hopefully secured a front row seat to next year’s event!
