Nokia Siemens Networks and Ubidyne to cooperate on Active antenna solution for multi-standard radio
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.
Ubidyne is the global leader in digital antenna embedded radio technology for wireless communications. Ubidyne's standards-agnostic micro-radio technology is integrated with wireless antennas and revolutionizes the economics of mobile communications. These integrated active antenna systems are compatible with current and next generation mobile standards. They eliminate the need for coaxial feeder cables, remote electrical tilt and additional amplifiers on antenna towers and masts. The Ubidyne technology significantly reduces energy consumption while improving radio performance, deployment flexibility, coverage and capacity of mobile communications networks globally.
