Nokia Siemens Networks promotes GSM for M2M applications

Nokia Siemens Networks (Espoo, Finland), a telecommunications equipment provider, on Friday announced that it would promote GSM for its M2M applications.

“It’s not a promotion of GSM at the expense of another technology,” said Johanna Harjula, a Nokia Siemens Networks spokesperson. “GSM is the dominant carrier of M2M applications and is expected to remain as such for quite some time.”

According to Harjula, Nokia Siemens Networks expects GSM subscriptions supporting M2M applications to reach 1 billion by 2015.

Today, there are 838 GSM networks in 234 countries, with more than 4.4 billion subscribers worldwide, according to the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSMA). In comparison, CDMA has 325 commercial operators in 124 countries, with approximately 0.7 billion subscribes worldwide.

“This increase in the use of GSM networks to support automated communication between devices and applications will cause signaling capacity, traffic management, and Quality of Service to become significant operator issues,” said Harjula.

According to Nokia Siemens Networks, its M2M software suite for GSM helps prevent the overloading of networks with traffic, avoiding network congestion and supporting M2M growth. The signaling of traffic in M2M technology is what can clog networks and cause this congestion.

“Our new precise paging feature reduces M2M application signaling in GSM networks by up to 70%, said Harjula. “Since M2M data transactions are expected to grow by ten times in the next few years, signaling will be a very relevant issue for operators.”

According to Nokia Siemens Networks, signaling is an important issue now that smartphones in operator’s networks are on the rise.
