Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has won a contract to expand Singaporean operator StarHub’s mobile network capacity, in the process strengthening its HSPA+ wireless broadband services. According to a report from EFY News Network, the vendor has upped StarHub’s network capacity by implementing a flat network architecture, using its Direct Tunnel solution. ‘Data traffic has increased exponentially over the last two years, and StarHub is now geared to handle the current and future traffic needs of its subscribers. What’s more, there is no need to invest substantial amounts of money to build capacity to handle the increased data throughput. It’s really thanks to this innovative software offering from Nokia Siemens Networks that routes 3G data traffic effectively, improving the user experience while reducing capital and operating expenses,’ said Peter Cook, vice president, integrated network engineering, StarHub.
