Nokia Siemens Positive About Opportunities In US

Telecoms equipment maker Nokia Siemens Networks has claimed that the company sees ample opportunities in the US despite the looming T-Mobile acquisition by AT&T.

US wireless carrier AT&T plans to acquire Deutsche Telekom's US subsidiary T-Mobile for the substantial sum of $39 billion, making it the largest mobile phone operator in the country.

The acquisition, which is quite a way from being given the nod of approval by regulators, is expected to have a negative impact on the US telecom equipment market, especially Nokia Siemens.

A spokesperson for the company said in a statement to Reuters, “We believe we have a significant opportunity to help American operators deal with the unique demands of smartphones and tablets. This deal does not diminish that belief.”

The on-going CTIA Wireless conference in the US saw NSN introduce some new architecture for mobile phone operators called Liquid Radio, which will allow operators to economically manage their networks according to user demand.

Thorsten Robrecht, head of NSN’s network systems product management, said, “Our Liquid Radio architecture removes the constraints of traditional mobile broadband networks to address the ‘ebb and flow’ of traffic created by users’ movements across the network.”
