Nokia 4.9G TD-LTE delivers top network quality and fast return on investment

Nokia has carved out a clear leadership position in TD-LTE. We have led TD-LTE development, building an experienced R&D team dedicated to creating innovative, future-proof and class-leading solutions for operators in all markets. The result is a high performance, cost-effective solution based on our compact AirScale Base Station, which provides a clear path to 5G.

Our TD-LTE products are proven in large-scale networks to deliver high customer satisfaction, such as in China Mobile’s network with nearly half a billion subscribers. We have globalized TD-LTE with close to 100 references, and many first commercial network launches including Latin America, Russia, India, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia.

The Nokia TD-LTE solution incorporates AirScale Base Station that offers a broad range of radio options, including the latest AirScale Massive MIMO Adaptive Antenna that uses 128 elements and 3D Beamforming to boost cell capacity by up to five-fold. AirScale Base Station offers unlimited capacity and multi-connectivity including TDD and FDD. The base station integrates a transport module, high capacity RF interfaces, GPS, built-in security and 4.9G features.

The Nokia TD-LTE solution also includes features that dramatically expand capacity and coverage – for example, our Smart Scheduler enables top network quality and up to 40 percent lower total cost of ownership by enabling more simultaneous subscribers in a given site. In addition, our Intelligent Beamforming software delivers more than 100 percent improvement in downlink cell throughput and 35 percent improvement in uplink throughput – resulting in compelling user experiences with fewer sites deployed.
