Nokia launches next-generation AirScale 5G portfolio powered by ReefShark technology
By Tarun Chhabra, Head of Cellular Networks Enterprise, Nokia India

World’s first 5G community grew to become business in April 2019 in Korea and since then a complete of 169 operators in 70 international locations/territories had launched a number of 3GPP-compliant 5G providers, as per GSA report, June 2021. Because the 5G utilization and site visitors continues to develop, there’s a demand for greater community capability and enhanced efficiency whereas decreasing the TCO (Whole Price of Possession) and web site footprint.

Proper from greater bandwidth help to the variety of related customers to greater RF energy to power effectivity by means of to Single RAN and ease of deployment – Nokia’s newly bolstered AirScale 5G portfolio, launched on twenty fourth June 2021, will successfully deal with these necessities and allow CSPs to flexibly scale capability and evolve to 5G from current applied sciences, making certain an environment friendly TCO.

  • Nokia’s new, industry-leading 5G portfolio covers baseband, radio, and large MIMO antennas providing enormous 5G capability, protection, and simple deployment
  • Introduces {industry}’s lightest huge MIMO unit enabling simplified deployments and sooner time to market
  • Nokia’s new complete vary of merchandise are powered by Nokia’s newest era of ReefShark System-on-Chip (SoC) chipsets

New AirScale portfolio for capability, efficiency, and effectivity

Nokia has launched its new era of ReefShark-powered AirScale huge MIMO antennas in addition to 8T8R distant radio head options that may deal with all the most important 5G web site deployment situations throughout CSPs in India. The 32TRX huge MIMO antenna is the {industry}’s lightest, making the positioning deployments a lot easier and sooner. With advanced multi-frequency and multi-RAT web site options been deployed by the CSPs because the networks advanced through the years, the websites additionally grew in dimension alongside. This compact and light-weight antenna will assist to make the websites leaner and reduce general TCO as networks evolve to 5G. This low weight is additional complemented by the excessive radio frequency bandwidth help overlaying the complete mid-band spectrum allocation in India.Nokia has additionally launched a brand new SoC-based baseband plug-in playing cards to spice up the capability of the AirScale System Module. The brand new ReefShark-powered plug-in playing cards ship as much as eight occasions extra throughput in comparison with earlier generations. Current Airscale websites within the community can evolve easily to help 5G Deployment with new modules. Nokia’s baseband module presents huge connectivity and capability – can help 90,000 related customers concurrently and has 84 Gbps throughput. The extremely environment friendly ReefShark powered plug-in playing cards additionally scale back energy consumption considerably. The modular design of AirScale baseband permits CSPs to scale capability flexibly as they develop.

Within the phrases of Tommi Uitto, President of Cellular Networks, Nokia, “Our new era of ReefShark-powered AirScale radio and baseband merchandise are proof of the profitable transformation of our enterprise and skill to ship market-leading merchandise to our international clients. Nokia’s new portfolio permits communication service suppliers to supply each shopper and enterprise clients cutting-edge 5G experiences with premium speeds, capability, and connectivity underpinned by seamless, easy, and environment friendly ‘plug-in’ deployment. Our new AirScale merchandise are O-RAN prepared. They eat much less power and spotlight our dedication to local weather change. We’re excited to see our clients deploying these merchandise and see the transformative influence of 5G expertise.”

Nokia’s new AirScale 5G portfolio launch comes at a time when India is gearing up for 5G – the timing is ideal. Nokia is conducting 5G trials throughout a number of cities in India with companion CSPs. Throughout the course of those trials, Nokia will introduce its ReefShark powered radio options which were developed to help the mid-band frequency spectrum to be allotted for a 5G rollout in India.

Our new light-weight and compact radio and large MIMO antenna options, with wider spectrum help, and excessive capability baseband might be a super match for the Indian marketplace for a easy, quick and simple 5G deployment.
