Nokia Siemens launches new way to deliver broadband
The new method allows a network operator to set up a self-adapting network that can serve variable capacity.

New Delhi: Global telecom infrastructure firm Nokia Siemens Networks Tuesday launched a new way to deliver broadband - the "liquid net". "The new method allows a network operator to set up a self-adapting network that can serve variable capacity and coverage requirements, based on demand," the company said in a statement. Some of the aims of the new approach are to share resources to meet unpredictable broadband demand, and to enhance the quality of broadband services across the globe.

Liquid net will free up unused capacity and allocate it instantly across the whole network wherever and whenever it is required. "Capacity in today's conventional networks is typically frozen in separate places, at individual base station sites, in parts of the core network that manage voice and data services, or in the optical and IP transport networks," said Marc Rouanne, head of network systems at Nokia Siemens Networks.

"Each is a potential bottleneck to someone getting the broadband service they want at a particular moment. Liquid Net unleashes frozen network capacity into a reservoir of resources that can flow to fulfill unpredictable demand, wherever and whenever people use broadband," he added.
