Easy and Fast to Install, and 60% More Energy Efficient than Earlier Base Stations
The Nokia Airscale Base Station is compact, yet delivers huge capacity and connectivity to support future traffic growth . A key part of AirScale Radio Access, the base station is easy to install and gives you the flexibility to run all radio technologies, including 5G, and support all network topologies, including Cloud RAN.
High-Quality Connectivity and Coverage for Unprecedented User-experience
AirScale Base Stations enabled by the new Nokia ReefShark chipsets deliver market leading throughput, up to 84 Gbps per system module. AirScale baseband module chaining supports base station throughputs of up to 6 terabits per second, which will allow operators to meet the huge growing densification demands and support the massive enhanced mobile broadband needs of people and devices in megacities. AirScale Radio Access is an industry-first commercial end-to-end 5G solution enabling operators to capitalize early on 5G.
Evolve Your Network When Needed to Meet Changing Requirements
Even more capacity can be added from the cloud. AirScale Base Station also includes single band and multiband radio heads, including the world’s first triple band radio. Thanks to their compact size, energy efficiency, high output power and multiband capabilities, the radios help to reduce the site space requirement and allow faster roll out while lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO). These can support carrier aggregation, massive MIMO and Beamforming solutions to maximize the cell throughput and capacity for an enhanced overall user-experience.
Nokia AirScale Compact Active Antenna: High-Capacity when Space is Limited
The Nokia AirScale Compact Active Antenna (CAA) is a compact antenna solution that enables you to add capacity where it’s most often needed: in dense urban areas. Its minimal footprint allows rapid installation on the most crowded base station sites, eliminating the time-consuming search for new sites and the costly need to build out backhaul. Now you can solve capacity bottlenecks where even small cells may be hard to deploy.
Despite its small size, the antenna packs in a dual-band radio for high capacity. Its tightly integrated design eliminates connecting cables and the need for ancillary equipment such as combiners and mast-head amplifiers. This leads to minimal system losses, high power efficiency and easier installation.
