Nokia enhances AirScale small cells portfolio

Nokia Airscale family (Image source - Nokia)Nokia today announced the launch of new additions to its AirScale small cells portfolio for premium indoor and outdoor 5G coverage.

Nokia’s new products include AirScale micro Remote Radio Heads (mRRH), AirScale indoor Radio (ASiR) solutions and millimeter wave (mmWave) radio product line-up. The new solutions support the majority of frequency bands, including requirements for C-Band spectrum in the U.S, Nokia said.

AirScale mRRH offers premium outdoor 5G coverage and also enhances both capacity and coverage in dense urban environments. They also allow operators to cost-effectively densify their networks, especially where the deployment of a macro cell would not be appropriate, Nokia said.

Micro RRH have small footprints and offer increased deployment options, as well as lower power consumption and so lower operational cost. In addition to the new U.S. C-Band (n77) product, Nokia’s enhanced mRRH portfolio also offers even broader mid-band capabilities with a new n79 product.

Nokia’s new range of AirScale indoor Radio (ASiR) solutions include a new ASiR-pRRH (pico Remote Radio Head) supporting U.S. C-Band spectrum requirements and a new triple-band pRRH – the first integrated 4G/5G pRRH.

Nokia has also released a new Smart HUB, which supports even greater throughput capacity for 5G and an associated Hybrid Fiber Converter that enables the use of hybrid fibers for interconnection to existing ASiR-pRRH.

The latest millimeter wave (mmWave) radio product line-up from Nokia is ideal for extreme capacity 5G connectivity for stadiums, airports or pedestrianized areas, the company said. These compact products support a wide range of deployment options to ease installation considerations in busy locations. Nokia’s mmWave portfolio supports all spectrum bands including 24/26 GHz, 28 GHz and 39 GHz.

Nokia recently launched the Nokia Smart Node, a compact femtocell solution delivering high-quality 4G and 5G indoor mobile coverage for residential and small-medium enterprise use.
