Beijing Mobile will offer its subscribers increased data speeds and an overall improved wireless broadband experience with the help of Nokia Siemens Networks' direct tunnel technology. Beijing Mobile will be the first provider in the region to commercially implement the technology that claims to cost effectively improve packet core network efficiency. The implementation sets the stage for Long Term Evolution (LTE) deployment.

With mobile Internet users accounting for more than half of China Mobile's subscriber base, data throughput has increased close to 200 percent over last year. Against such a backdrop, direct tunnel provides an intelligent connectivity short cut for the massive user data streams. Transforming to a flat IP architecture via a simple software upgrade, the solution delivers substantial operational savings and is key to the operator's network evolution towards next generation LTE mobile networks.

"Keeping pace with the unprecedented growth in mobile broadband demands innovationsomething our direct tunnel solution does well," said Ding Weiqing, head of China mobile customer business team, Nokia Siemens. "It enables Beijing Mobile to deliver higher bandwidth, improve end user experience while maintaining simple connectivity architecture and reduced costs."
