Compatible with both FDD and TDD variants of LTE. Boosts downlink speeds at cell edge with no added hardware costs, shows world's first demonstration of a new coordinated multi-cell scheduling approach at MWC.
In LTE networks, the algorithms used for scheduling are not standardized. With NSN's field proven Smart Scheduler, individual base station radio resources can be highly optimized, resulting in more than 100 percent increase in cell edge data rates and more than 20 percent improvement in cell capacity today when compared to other baseline industry LTE schedulers. NSN is now introducing a software upgrade that adds coordinated scheduling to the Smart Scheduler. With this function, neighboring base stations will allocate their radio resources in collaboration to reduce inter-cell interference. This leads to higher downlink speeds for subscribers, especially at the cell edge where the reduction in interference between cells produces a 30 percent improvement.
"Mobile broadband users will experience superior performance everywhere, not just when they're at the center of a cell," said
Offering the same benefits for both FDD-LTE and TD-LTE networks, coordinated scheduling is implemented in the existing NSN Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Stations which run the NSN Smart Scheduler. Flexi Multiradio Base Stations are currently used in hundreds of commercial radio networks around the world.
