TT-Network (TTN), the mobile network sharing joint venture between Telenor and Telia has deployed Nokia's Centralized RAN at the Jyske Bank Boxen indoor arena in Herning, Denmark for a recent concert.

According to Nokia, customers enjoyed 100% network availability and nearly doubled LTE data upload speeds. Nokia said that the average LTE downlink traffic is typically 10 times greater than uplink traffic, but here, the trend was reversed: the average ratio of uplink to downlink traffic was 3 to 1, boosting uplink capacity where it is needed the most. Nokia added that its centralized RAN solution achieves this by linking multiple LTE base cells together into cooperative clusters able to handle the increased traffic.

Peter Nødbak, Head of Network at Telenor
We want our customers to enjoy and share every moment at events, wherever they are. This is a challenge at big arenas where many people want to use their smartphones at once. 

Henrik Kofod, Technical Director at Telia
With Nokia's world-class solution, we are now able to deliver higher capacity and more robust services to large numbers of users at Jyske Bank Boxen arena.
