Nokia’s Levante, a 4G/5G capacity card, doubling the number of supported Massive MIMO cells and yet reduces energy consumption by up to 60 percent. It offers up to three times larger site configurations. Nokia adds Lodos to its baseband portfolio, a 4G/5G capacity card offering enhanced scalability and reduces energy consumption by up to 30 percent.

Ponente baseband control card

Nokia launched Ponente, a 2G-5G control card, to support traffic growth with up to 100 percent higher throughput capacity offering high-speed site connectivity. Ponente reduces energy consumption by up to 80 percent. The cards integrate Trusted Platform Module (TPM) technology, which uses hardware-processed security keys that are more secure than software-processed keys.

Pandion and Shikra radio

Nokia announced the expansion of its radio portfolio for O-RAN, Cloud RAN, and purpose-built scenarios with Pandion, Nokia’s latest generation of FDD remote radio heads, supporting up to three FDD bands in a single form factor. Nokia announced Shikra, which complements Nokia’s comprehensive portfolio with leading-edge small cells for both outdoor and indoor scenarios.

MantaRay network management solutions

Nokia has launched MantaRay, which brings the power of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) to support intelligent, efficient, and cognitive RAN operations.

Nokia also launched MantaRay Energy, which combines Nokia’s capabilities to optimize the energy consumption of radio access networks with AI and ML.

Remy Pascal, Principal Analyst, Mobile infrastructure at Omdia, said: “These new additions to Nokia’s modular AirScale baseband portfolio will help mobile operators manage traffic growth and future-proof their networks by adding capacity and performance.”

Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia, said: “Our baseband delivers twice the performance with just half the energy, helping our customers meet their ESG targets.”

“With our MantaRay solutions portfolio, our customers can leverage the power of Artificial Intelligence in their mobile networks. All of these solutions are O-RAN ready, and Cloud RAN compatible, supporting the long-term network evolution to 5G-Advanced and beyond.”
