Nokia Siemens Networks and Ubidyne to cooperate on Active antenna solution for multi-standard radio

(PresseBox) ( Espoo, )
Nokia Siemens Networks, a leading global enabler of communications network solutions and services, and Ubidyne, a leader in digital radio technology for the wireless industry, have agreed on cooperation to enhance NSN's market-leading Flexi Base Station solution with Ubidyne's innovative active antenna product.

The active antenna technology integrates the functionality of active radio frequency parts of a base station and a passive antenna into one enclosure. It is connected to Nokia Siemens Networks' Flexi base station running OBSAI standard interface.

The innovative solution based on a platform capable of supporting multiple standards (GSM/WCDMA/LTE/WiMAX) protects operator investment and reduces OPEX by decreasing installation, site rental, maintenance and energy costs. Moreover, reduction of power consumption and visible base station equipment benefit living environment ecologically and visually.

"Nokia Siemens Networks is a forerunner in providing innovative solutions that bring tangible benefits to operators in form of reduced OPEX and CAPEX and increased performance. Along with this, Ubidyne's innovative technology will add value to our customers as part of our leading Flexi Base Station solution including future features like beamforming. With this innovation we are moving towards future base station concepts, in which active antennas are one architecture option" said Tommi Uitto, Head of WCDMA Product Management, Nokia Siemens Networks.

"We believe our innovative active antenna product and Nokia Siemens Networks Flexi Base Station make a strong match that will meet the needs of operators seeking to invest to the future and gain immediate benefits through reduced costs." said Ken Hawk, CEO of Ubidyne.

The solution is targeted to operators rolling out new 3G or LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks or enhancing their existing 3G networks, and those planning to gradually phase out GSM to make space for WCDMA/LTE.
