Nokia Services Maximizes 1700/2100 MHz and 700 MHz Spectrum Potential in North America

Nokia offers professional services and consultancy to assist participants in FCC's upcoming spectrum license auctions

(PresseBox) (Las Vegas, NV, USA, )
The Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) auctions of licenses for 1700/2100 MHz and 700 MHz spectrum present many unique opportunities for communications providers. To optimize these opportunities, Nokia's Services group has a comprehensive suite of consultancy services, like Site Engineering Consulting, to assist auction participants in creating business cases for these spectrum bands.

Nokia's vast global experience in this field shows that depending on a provider's current or desired business model, there is a range of options available, and a number of factors to be considered when determining the best course of action with a high impact on both capital and operating expenditures.

"Nokia's leading global position in both mobile devices and network infrastructure together with an increasing presence in professional services creates a unique set of capabilities in today's marketplace," said Mark Slater, vice president, Networks, Nokia. "These assets allow Nokia to provide operators with a thorough understanding of the intricate ecosystem necessary for a successful network rollout, including assistance in identifying applications that work seamlessly with devices to provide a compelling end-user experience."

Auction participants must consider service offerings, device types and distribution models, coverage versus capacity requirements, and global technology adaptation rates that would impact how services and devices are rolled out and priced in North America.

Nokia provides a full range of support and services, including hosting, managed services and systems integration and consulting, to help operators differentiate and innovate their mobile offerings, Services is a significant growth area for Nokia, comprising more than 30 percent of revenues in Nokia's Networks business group.

In addition to services, Nokia has recently introduced network equipment and infrastructure optimized for the 1700/2100 MHz and 700 MHz bands. The Nokia Flexi Base Station enables easy deployment of cellular and/or broadband wireless access networks, like WCDMA, HSPA, and WiMAX with up to 70 percent lower base station site expenditures. The Flexi Base Station will be available for WCDMA and HSPA for the IMT-2000 frequencies 2100 MHz, 1700 MHz, 1800 MHz and 1700/2100 MHz in the second half of 2006. In addition, Nokia was the first company to introduce Internet-High-Speed Packet Access (I-HSPA), an innovative flat network solution that enables high-speed mobile access with wide area coverage for data intensive business and consumer applications, and VoIP.

Nokia will be showcasing the Nokia Flexi Base Station in Las Vegas at CTIA Wireless 2006, April 5-7, at Booth #2641 and will be demonstrating I-HSPA and a live Nokia Flexi Base Station call in the Nokia Mobile Solutions Experience Center located outside the Las Vegas Convention Center. Live demonstrations are by appointment only.
