Nokia Siemens Networks Supports 700 MHz Spectrum

Nokia Siemens Networks announced its support for the 700 MHz spectrum band that will be auctioned by the FCC in early 2008, describing it as a unique opportunity for mobile broadband.

Nokia Siemens Networks is positioned to support the 700 MHz band with its flagship Flexi platform for radio access networks. The Flexi is a base station platform featuring a modular design capable of supporting various wireless technologies at new radio frequencies. This includes GSM, EDGE, WCDMA, HSPA, and WiMAX and in the future will support Long-term Evolution (LTE).

In addition to WCDMA/HSPA, Nokia Siemens Networks is developing Internet-HSPA, a pre-LTE flat network architecture based on the 3GPP Release 7 flat network architecture option that is compatible with HSPA devices and provides an optimized transition to LTE. Internet-HSPA is an option for broadband wireless high speed data delivery with a flat all-IP architecture.
