Nokia improves network efficiency on Hutchison 3 network

Nokia is working with Hutchison 3 Indonesia to help it increase efficiency on its LTE network and at the same time, help boost its customer experience.

By using Nokia’s Spectral Performance Management solution Hutchison 3 has experienced a 17% increase in spectral efficiency, enabling more mobile broadband for more subscribers, with faster data speeds and a more reliable service.

“We provide high quality 4G data services with particular focus on the millennial across Indonesia,” said Desmond Cheung, CTO of Hutchison 3 Indonesia. “We are very pleased that Nokia and their Spectral Performance Management solution, using the latest innovations in AI and machine learning, help us to reduce the latency and increase capacity so that our customers can respond to their mobile games much quicker and enjoy superior video quality."

Driven by its younger subscribers that use bandwidth-hungry applications like video and mobile gaming, Hutchison 3 says that it wants to provide the best quality service possible. Nokia’s spectral performance management technology has enabled Hutchison 3 to identify and resolve network performance issues and provide improved quality service for its subscribers.

"Mobile operators of all stripes face the same reality: network demand continues to increase, but available spectrum generally stays the same. As a result, they must do everything they can to squeeze more capacity and performance out of the same pipe. Analytics-informed artificial intelligence plays a vital role in ensuring strong network performance and maximising spectral efficiency," added John Byrne, service director for global telecom technology and software at research firm GlobalData.

Nokia AVA, Nokia’s cloud-based platform, uses analytics and generates automated recommendations to improve spectral efficiency and help prioritise investment in additional capacity. In addition, Nokia AVA collects, stores and analyses data from multiple sources, including Minimisation of Drive Test (MDT) data.

"Spectrum is a finite resource, so making the most out of it is the smart thing for any operator to do,” said Dennis Lorenzin, head of the network cognitive service unit at Nokia. “Hutchison 3 Indonesia is addressing head-on the challenge posed by growing subscriber numbers and new bandwidth-hungry apps such as video and gaming. With the help of Nokia AVA, they can improve network efficiency and boost the experience for their subscribers."

Additionally, things like machine-learning algorithms that enable the analysis of data and identifies patterns of usage and network behaviour, gives Hutchison 3 granular insights to plan more accurately and increase the return on its network investments.
