Nokia Siemens Networks says it's been working to remove bottlenecks from O2’s mobile broadband coverage in London, helping the network meet the demands of its smartphone users.
By analysing the activity of smart devices on the O2 network and combining this with traffic growth forecasts, NSN says it's upgraded the network elements and modules identified as current and potential future bottlenecks. Adding new base stations to existing sites has helped O2 increase coverage and capacity while also conserving smartphone battery life.
Nigel Purdy, O2's head of Technology, said "There is unprecedented demand on mobile networks, particularly in dense urban areas. Nokia Siemens Networks reacted swiftly to understand the challenges being placed on our network, and then implemented an effective upgrade to enhance the smartphone experience for our customers. This has resulted in a better use of network resources, minimized traffic loss and enhanced the experience of smartphone users."
