StarHub deploys Nokia Networks HetNet solution in Singapore

Singapore mobile operator StarHub has deployed Nokia Networks' TD-LTE, FDD-LTE and outdoor small cells solution as part of a 4G HetNet in Marina Bay at the southern tip of Singapore. With this solution in place, subscribers are enjoying seamless high-speed mobile connectivity.

Nokia reports that the solution achieved 100% service availability even under heavy load during recent major events, including Singapore's Jubilee weekend. The HetNet also showcased what Nokia claims is the industry's first TDD-FDD VoLTE handover, with zero call-drops and HD voice continuity for subscribers.

Nokia integrated TD-LTE, FDD-LTE and small cells into one network carrying large amounts of voice and data traffic. As part of the solution, LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation delivered high data rates, while Nokia Flexi Zone small cells were installed at strategic traffic hotspots to handle peak-hour data demand.
