GSM Radio Access Networks

Increase capacity and improve the quality of service on your GSM networks and make sure you are ready for the growth in smart devices and machine-to-machine applications

GSM is the most successful communication technology ever. Launched in 1991, it serves more than 80% of mobile subscribers today. In many parts of the world GSM is the only means of mobile communication, and will be for a long time to come. As a result, new networks continue to be built and existing networks are expanded to new geographical areas. In other areas, GSM’s wide penetration and vast footprint provide umbrella coverage for 3G HSPA and LTE networks. With a huge increase in voice and data traffic, operators face the challenge of upgrading and optimizing network infrastructure while maintaining cost efficiency.
