Nokia Solutions and Networks launches six enhancements for its Single RAN (radio access network) Advanced* portfolio to help operators simplify their radio access networks and management functions. Fewer boxes, less cabling, faster installation, simpler operations and more efficient use of spectrum mean operators can achieve considerable cost savings.
“Radio access networks are becoming increasingly complex with LTE services provided alongside GSM and WCDMA services, and new frequency bands, as well as IP-based transport for LTE being added to existing backhaul network,” said Kimmo Virkki, vice president, Single RAN Business Product Management at NSN. “Running three different networks simultaneously often means rising costs, and compromised performance given the increased risk of error. NSN’s Single RAN Advanced cuts through this complexity by running GSM, HSPA and LTE technologies on shared multi-purpose hardware. Our latest features simplify base station sites and their operations, slashing costs and freeing up 55% of the spectrum for HSPA/LTE refarming.”
New Single RAN Advanced from NSN with its latest enhancements and their associated benefits include:
