NSN has again done a first in the field of network technology advancement. It has demoed “Authorized shared access” or ASA trial with TD-LTE network. Using this tech, mobile operators can get up to 18% of extra bandwidth. This technology actually pave the way to next generation of networks or 5G.
In a live TD-LTE 4G network trial with a commercial operator and a spectrum-owning local agency, Nokia Solutions and Networks demonstrated that Authorized Shared Access (ASA) is a technology that paves the way for future 5G networks. With dynamic access to underutilized spectrum frequencies, operators will be able to harvest extra capacity to offer unmatched coverage and customer experience for mobile broadband users.
The benefit of ASA is that it provides both the technology and regulatory framework for sharing spectrum”, said Marc Rouanne, executive vice president, Mobile Broadband at NSN. “Our trial showed that operators can get up to 18% extra bandwidth for mobile broadband networks cost effectively. This technology works with existing LTE and TD-LTE networks and does not require specific software for the end-user devices, making it easy to deploy and transfer the benefit directly to the mobile customers.”
