Building on the companies’ previous collaboration, this versatile hybrid solution consists of two field-replaceable modules:
- A purely passive module that supports multiple bands in the range 700 MHz to 2.7 GHz.
- A passive-active module that includes TDD beamforming functionality for 5G n78 (3.4-3.8 GHz). This passive-active module also includes an extension of the low band arrays to avoid re-optimizing existing networks at 700-900 MHz.
Both modules can be customized to support various combinations of low- and mid-band capabilities and different radio options for 5G band n78, ranging from 8T8R to 64T64R. This capability allows operators to fully utilize limited space on cell towers and ease typical deployment challenges.
“Integration of active and passive antennas will be a major challenge for the industry over the next five years,” said
“Site permitting is a critical issue for wireless network operators today,” said
“Nokia is always looking to increase the flexibility and efficiency of mobile networks for operators and their subscribers,” said
