nokia-networksNokia Networks is offering WiMAX operators a compelling solution to smoothly migrate WiMAX networks to TD-LTE-Advanced.

The company is enhancing its broad portfolio of 1.9 GHz to 2.6 GHz and 2-pipe to 8-pipe TD-LTE radios with the world’s first 3.5 GHz carrier aggregation capable radio, and adding new TD-LTE-Advanced features and required services.

With its global service expertise, operators can reuse the majority of their infrastructure while enhancing their network with new features, capacity and, most importantly, support for the latest smartphones and tablets that will attract more subscribers. Deployment of Nokia Networks Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station for TDD and FDD will allow expansion with FDD-LTE for even better capacity, coverage and roaming benefits.

“Our Single RAN Advanced Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station for TDD and FDD makes a strong case for WiMAX operators to migrate now and reap the benefits from their existing investment in spectrum, backhaul, cabling, towers and energy. It will also help them be ready for TDD-FDD carrier aggregation,” said Zhang Qi, vice president, TD-LTE, Nokia Networks.

The WiMAX to Nokia Networks TD-LTE-Advanced solution includes the industry’s first 3.5 GHz radio with TD-LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation capabilities, the UL_COMP software for better upload experience at the cell edge compared to WiMAX, and the first Transmit Mode 9 beamforming commercial software for improvement in download.

This solution has been designed to help operators increase revenue, reduce costs and make a smooth and rapid network migration.

A transition from WiMAX to TD-LTE-Advanced requires careful analysis of the operator’s infrastructure to guarantee the continuation and improvement of service quality.

Nokia Networks Global Services enable WiMAX operators to modernize their networks and make a seamless transition to TD-LTE with a turnkey approach.
