Nokia Siemens unveils dual carrier EDGE software

Nokia Siemens Networks has launched its downlink dual carrier EDGE software solution, ushering the first steps of EDGE Evolution into Nokia Siemens Networks' GSM/EDGE radio portfolio.

The company said that the solution offers double data speeds of up to 592Kbps to existing EDGE-capable GSM networks, thus enabling a mobile broadband experience, such as maintaining relationships in virtual societies, posting video clips to blogs in real time or streaming the latest news in mobile TV.

Nokia Siemens Networks' Dual Carrier EDGE solution will be available as a software upgrade from the third quarter of 2008 onwards.
