Nokia Packages Rapidly Deployable LTE Network in a Box

Nokia Networks introduced a compact, rapidly deployable LTE network in a box with macro site capacity . The box can serve as a dedicated small network for major industrial sites and itenables vital public safety communications to be implemented at emergency scenes where wide area network coverage is not available. In addition, mobile operators can use the miniature LTE network to bring high-bandwidth connectivity to rural and remote areas.

Nokia Network in a box is a compact macro base station with an integrated core network ready to operate on either FDD or TD-LTE bands, along with built-in ports for external IP connectivity. The unit is based on Nokia Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station and supports thousands of users. It weighs about 40 kg and requires a power supply of less than 1 kW, enabling it to be powered by a car-based inverter or a small portable generator.
