ESPOO, Finland -- At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Nokia Siemens Networks is launching its Open Multimedia Gateway, the first in the market based on ATCA* off-the-shelf hardware. Multimedia gateways handle data and call traffic for IP-based and legacy networks. This new gateway product enhances the company’s portfolio of open and cost-effective core network applications that help operators reduce energy consumption and operating expenses.

“As the telecom industry evolves and matures, it is important that we transform the way we design our products,” said Michael Clever, head of voice and IP transformation at Nokia Siemens Networks. “Our aim is to decouple hardware and software, making our network applications more hardware independent. Decoupling creates a more open environment that gives service providers greater flexibility to meet their hardware requirements and reduce their operational costs.”

In a separate release:

ESPOO, Finland -- Nokia Siemens Networks today launched two new microwave switch products – FlexiPacket FirstMile and FlexiPacket Hub 1200 – that will enable operators to easily migrate from legacy networks to all-IP as they cope with increasing data traffic. Launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the two products are part of Nokia Siemens Networks’ FlexiPacket Microwave solution.

“Traditional networks are not equipped for the surge in mobile broadband traffic that operators are witnessing due to rising smartphone use,” said Vesa Tykkylainen, head of microwave transport at Nokia Siemens Networks. “Our FlexiPacket Microwave solution helps operators transform their networks to handle this deluge of data and offer their customers a better broadband service. These new products – FlexiPacket FirstMile and FlexiPacket Hub 1200 – allow operators to optimize their networks for data traffic, but also ensure that the quality of voice calls is not compromised.”
