Nokia, a leader in WCDMA and High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) contracts and deployments, today announced an extension to their WCDMA 3G indoor coverage solutions portfolio. The Nokia Pico WCDMA Base Station, showcased at Nokia Connection, supports WCDMA 3G and HSPA, allowing network operators to fully leverage the performance benefits of HSPA and capture more indoor network traffic, thus enhancing operator revenue opportunities.

"The accelerating deployment of WCDMA 3G and HSPA is increasing the use of data intensive mobile applications. This trend is accentuating the importance of in-building coverage and capacity solutions for 3G", said Robin Lindahl, Vice President, Radio Networks, Nokia. "Nokia WCDMA 3G and HSPA indoor solutions help operators capture more revenue and further amplify fixed to mobile substitution."

The Nokia Pico WCDMA Base Station allows operators to easily and cost efficiently build WCDMA 3G and HSPA coverage and capacity for indoor hotspots. The wall-mountable small base station, weighing only six kg, is easy to install in office buildings, shopping malls, aiports and other places with high network traffic. The Nokia Pico WCDMA Base Station is based on 3GPP standards and will be available for operator trials and pilots later in 2006 and for commercial deployments in mid 2007.

In addition to showing the Nokia Pico WCDMA Base Station, Nokia demonstrations at Nokia Connection include video and data calls on the Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station, EDGE Service Continuity and Nokia Internet-HSPA.
