Nokia Launches Double Capacity LTE/Wi-Fi Picocell

Nokia Networks introduced a double-capacity small cell base station called the Flexi Zone G2 Pico that features a 4-pipe radio and twice the processing capability of its earlier Flexi Zone Micro/Pico base station.


The first Flexi Zone G2 Pico base station to be available will be a 3.5 GHz TD-LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation Pico with 4x4 MIMO for advanced LTE markets. The unit also integrates Wi-Fi 802.11ac for additional capacity in a compact 8 liter, 8 kg unit for easy siting and installation. It offers full software and feature parity of Nokia Networks macro base stations and packs the same Smart Scheduler and HetNet interference management features. The Flexi Zone G2 Pico BTS can also be used as a stand alone unit or paired with Nokia’s Flexi Zone Controller to create large small cell clusters that act as one eNodeB.

Nokia is also adding an indoor planning service enhanced by 3-D geolocation to pinpoint precise locations in high-rise buildings.

“Nokia Networks has demonstrated its commitment to small cell development by being the first supplier with macro parity small cells, and we’re now the first to introduce small cells with LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation capabilties,” said Randy Cox, head of Small Cell Product Management at Nokia Networks. “Operators have an ever-increasing need to provide users with the best mobile broadband experience in key indoor locations. The addition of unique 3-D geolocation technology ensures the best planning and optimization techniques for outstanding performance throughout these buildings - from the top floor boardroom to the ground floor cafeteria.”
