New GSM base station and antenna combination doubles capacity
The new GSM base station site offering - a combination of a compact base station and latest dual beam antennas - follows the launch of Nokia Siemens Networks' High-Performance Site Solution for WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+ and Internet-HSPA (I-HSPA) networks last year. It enables a sixsector site, instead of the traditional threesector site used in most network rollouts today, to improve network capacity and coverage. The new offering also increases the signaling capacity that is crucial to support applications like push email, Facebook, Twitter, etc for smartphone users and added subscriber base in the existing network resources.
"Our base station site innovation helps operators across the world to significantly increase their network coverage, and enhance customer experience and loyalty," said Prashant Agnihotri, head of Product Management for GSM/EDGE, Nokia Siemens Networks. "We are already deploying this technology in India, and it marks our commitment to constantly improve network efficiency. Our software increases network capacity and optimizes spectral efficiency in all markets where spectrum is scarce."
Nokia Siemens Networks has been at the forefront of introducing high spectral efficiency features and, by combining those with its managed services offering, it enables improved network performance for GSM operators.
