We mainly recognize the Nokia brand through the mobile phones, but Nokia is not all about the mobile phones. Actually, when Devices and Services division went broke, Networks division was the one that helped raise Nokia back on her feet. Even current CEO, Rajeev Suri, is coming from networking division. Without network hardware, mobile phone business wouldn’t be possible, and Nokia is doing a lot to make mobile networks better and efficient.
Nokia has been working for a long time on energy efficient and more sustainable network hardware. Nokia developed new Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station, which can provide you more network capacity, efficiency and flexibility but with lower costs through an adaptable radio network. Additionally, Flexi 10 is world’s smallest base station and since it is high capacity and software defined, you don’t need many of those to cover the same area.
Nokia’s Barry French has posted an interesting photo showing just two (or three) Nokia Flexi 10 base stations doing the same job as 9 cells made by competitors. This way Nokia lowered the power consumption and rental fees, which will be interesting for many operators around the world. Nokia has been installing these stations for over 10 years which makes them field-proven.
