Nokia Traffic Steering Manager Squeezes 10% Efficiency Gain

Nokia Networks has achieved a 10% increase in network capacity introducing a Traffic Steering Manager to automatically direct traffic to the most effective radio network layer.

The Nokia Traffic Steering Manager provides an automated way of managing the multitude of load balancing features available in the networks today reducing related operational effort significantly, up to 70%. It ensures that the traffic is distributed across the radio network layers and it can, for example, boost LTE layer usage automatically when deployed in the network. Traffic can be steered onto the best radio network layer according to network conditions and other criteria, e.g. device type.
