At the Mobile World Congress (MWC), Nokia (News - Alert) Siemens Networks plans to launch a suite of core products called the Open Core Systems, a suite system based on open architecture to reduce time-to-market for services and simplify network evolution.
The Open Core System delivers higher processing capacity and can ensure a seamless evolution to all-IP core networks with minimal footprint and power requirements. Basically, these types of VoIP enabler services enhance the deployment of offerings from IP telephony equipment manufacturers and service providers.
The Open Core System comprises of the Open MSS (mobile softswitch), Open MGW (multimedia gateway), Open IMS (IP multimedia subsystem), Open VoIP Server, to name a few features.
Discussing the company’s imminent launch of its new products, Jukka Luoma, head of product management, voice and IP transformation at Nokia Siemens Networks (News - Alert) said, “We are witnessing a steady growth in new smart devices that are being introduced in the market along with growing demand from end-users for advanced services.”
“Our Open Core System decouples application software from the underlying equipment, providing more flexibility to operators in adjusting their networks according to the demand. In addition, the use of a single, commercial, off the shelf platform for all core products brings efficiency gains for the operator that directly impact operational and capital costs,” he added.
In related news, Nokia may be in for a radical change, if the new leader has anything to say about it. According to this AFP report, Stephen Elop noted in an internal memo to employees that the company is “standing on a burning platform” and is surrounded by a blazing fire of competition. The scenario, in his mind, calls for radical change and radical change starts at the top (executives).
