New capability enhances existing GSM base stations with Nokia Siemens Networks' Flexi Base Station Controller

Espoo, Finland, (PresseBox) - GSM operators currently using Motorola Solutions' radio equipment can now enjoy the benefits of Nokia Siemens Networks' Single RAN Advanced*. Nokia Siemens Networks has launched a solution that connects existing Motorola Solutions' GSM base stations to its Flexi Base Station Controller** and also provides a smooth and seamless network evolution path to 3G and LTE technologies. The solution will be available for commercial use by the end of June 2011.

"This solution helps Motorola's GSM radio network customers to reduce operational costs, improve network quality and support more end users today as well as in the future with the existing installed Motorola base station resources," said Kimmo Virkki, head of GSM product management, Nokia Siemens Networks. "The first network implementations with select customers show that our approach significantly increases network quality, voice and data traffic and EDGE throughput with Motorola base stations in the field, helping to protect operators' investments."

Nokia Siemens Networks' Flexi Base Station Controller is the world's most powerful base station controller, supporting up to 4200 carrier units in one cabinet and offering up to 80% reduction in energy consumption and a 40% increase in capacity over existing base station controllers***. A single Flexi Base Station Controller is effectively capable of providing the same support as up to 30 of Motorola Solutions' installed base station controllers.
