Two quick Nokia bytes!!
In its latest press release, NSN has announced that it is rolling out security and telco cloud innovations across the network. It is set to make a series of #1GBperday$ portfolio announcements during October. Along with enhancements in LTE-Advanced, TD-LTE and Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets), the company will showcase solutions for simplifying operations and extracting the full value from Customer Experience Management.
With its upcoming launches and continuing focus on innovation, NSN will also demonstrate innovation and expertise in telco cloud and security, key enablers for mobile broadband growth.
To define a clear path from the virtualization of single network elements to full cloud orchestration, NSN is introducing innovations such as cloud-ready application management that can be deployed on open, standards-based hardware using telco-specific cloud platforms. This innovation, which builds on the company’s agnostic cloud-stack approach, gives operators the option of choosing the most competitive hardware and cloud platform for their specific needs. Other telco cloud innovations from NSN will bring network operations into the cloud era.
In another important news, Here maps has brought incremental updates to offline maps on all WP8 devices.
When an update is available, you don’t have to download all your maps anew, only those roads and other map features that have been updated will be downloaded.
On average, this means 85-90 per cent less data and therefore a much faster update process. If, say, you have downloaded 1.5GB of maps, you can expect updates to weigh in at roughly 216MB.
HERE incremental updates are being rolled out right now for all Windows Phone 8 smartphones with the latest firmware (Nokia Amber for Lumia; GDR2 for all others). To see whether incremental updates are available, you can download the latest offline maps by going to settings > applications > maps > check for updates.
This incremental update idea is really very practical and appreciable as it saves both time and data.
