NSN: LTE performance matters more than features

In a blogpost over at NSN, Marc Rouanne, EVP of Mobile Broadband at NSN writes about how LTE performance matters much more than the feature set. He agrees with senior analyst of Mobile Access infrastructure, Ed Gibbins and focus less on the feature set.

I agree. Features are nice, but if they are not used or add no real value, then they can be worthless. Also, the basics must be in place. If the underlying network is not robust, does not perform well or staggers under heavy load, the add-on features are little help.  At NSN, we believe in the right features built on a platform of performance.

As one of the leading LTE vendors, we believe ours are the most reliable LTE networks deployed. For example, back in October 2013 we provided stellar network quality for the Busan Fireworks Festival in South Korea, the most advanced LTE market in the world. The networks of our competitors in the same area collapsed during the event. During the Festival, some 700,000 people sent videos, photos and messages to their friends and families. It takes a robust network to carry that much traffic.

Though this is the network side, it applies to devices too. Features are great but only if they actually add value. Eye scroll? Perhaps not quite yet.
