Nokia Siemens Networks is introducing Single RAN Advanced, an evolution of its Single RAN solution to support four radio technologies with the same equipment. Solution includes the 10 Gbps-capable Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station, the Flexi Lite Base Station for micro and pico deployments and a Multicontroller platform.
“While network operators’ revenue opportunities have grown over the past few years, they also face newer challenges to further enhance network efficiency and simplify their networks,” said Thorsten Robrecht, head of Network Systems product management, Nokia Siemens Networks.
It will enable operators to efficiently build additional capacity in GSM, 3G and LTE networks as well as prepare them for the higher bandwidth promised by LTE-Advanced, company said in a statement.
The 10 Gbps-capable Flexi Multiradio 10 base station is geared to support high-capacity mobile broadband and enable a smooth evolution to the LTE-Advanced standard. At the same time, it is fully backwards compatible with the existing Flexi Multiradio Base Station and helps further expand its capabilities.
Nokia Siemens Networks’ Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station will be available for commercial deployment during 2011, while the Flexi Lite Base Station will become available for commercial use during the first half of 2012. The Multicontroller platform is already being used in customer trials.
