Wavence: the microwave solution for 5G transport

Prepare your microwave transport for the telco cloud and 5G era with Nokia Wavence. The Nokia Wavence range introduces innovative, high-capacity ultra-broadband transceivers to support operators as they transition to 4.5G, 4.9G and eventually 5G networks.

To provide backhaul flexibility for ultra-dense heterogeneous city networks - where microwave transport is used to link small cells to fiber access points - Nokia Wavence microwave now supports Carrier SDN. Operators will benefit from new intelligence and automation, including rapid power-up of virtual network functions and adaptable parameters to support changes on the radio access network, such as when people move from work to home.

Learn more about Nokia Wavence in our brochure and read our white paper on Microwave transport in 4.5G, 4.9G and 5G networks.

The ultra-broadband transceiver UBT-S, a single carrier box, the UBT-T, a dual carrier in a box radio and the UBT-m 80, a compact E-band radio, support carrier aggregation to deliver multi-gigabit, low latency microwave transport.

Ultra-broadband transceivers Single, Twin and 80

Nokia Wavence is the evolution and the new name for the Nokia 9500 Microwave Packet radio family. It is backwards-compatible with operators’ Nokia microwave installed base and provides a cost-effective path to 5G.

Address all 4.xG and 5G architectures


  • Ultra-high capacity with outstanding radio performance of 2.5 Gbps in standard frequencies and up to 10 Gbps with E-Band carrier aggregation
  • Complies with 5G low latency requirements including cloud RAN architecture
  • Direct interoperability with Nokia AirScale 10G transport interfaces
  • High-speed connectivity and programmability through software defined networking (SDN)
  • Innovative product design with compact wideband / sub-band free radios, drastically simplifying installation, maintenance and spare parts management
Carrier Aggregation 18+80 GHz with multi-band antenna


Evolve to service creation automation and simpler operations with SDN

Nokia Wavence ultra-broadband transceivers provide 10G high-speed connectivity and programmability through SDN to support standard backhaul and Ethernet fronthaul for a clear evolution to the telco cloud.
