Nokia Siemens Networks says that it is launching a new CDMA base station based on its Flexi Multiradio platform.
Nokia Siemens Networks says that its own tests have shown that, compared to earlier generations of base stations, the new product can reduce base station operating costs by up to 70%.
"We've integrated our acquired CDMA capabilities into the industry-leading Nokia Siemens Networks Flexi Multiradio Base Station portfolio, focusing on customers' on-going needs. To achieve this, we have invested significant R&D resources to create flexible future options for CDMA operators including multi-technology capabilities," said Scott Mottonen, head of the CDMA/LTE business line, Nokia Siemens Networks.
Using the common Flexi Multiradio Base Station format makes the integration of CDMA into multi-technology sites straightforward, which is especially important given the ongoing adoption of LTE.
The Flexi Multiradio CDMA Base Station will be available for commercial deployments in the 800MHz and 1900MHz frequency bands by the end of 2012, with additional frequency bands provided based on market demand.
