On Wednesday, Nokia Siemens Networks announced it will launch a new CDMA base station, the Flexi Multiradio CDMA Base Station, next week at the International CTIA Wireless show in New Orleans. What’s this mean for you? Well according to the NSN it should reduce operating costs by 70%. All I can say is WOW! 70% reduction means only 30% of the operating cost remains, that is HUGE! With this new technology cellular carriers can optimize space while running as efficiently if not more efficient. While I am sure this technology is still very new it won’t be running anytime soon but does provide a glimmer of hope that big company cell phones can be cut down to be as little as prepaid companies.
Hit the break for more…
Flexi Multiradio CDMA Base Station cuts both running costs and the need for power-hungry air conditioning, says the company. The compact size of the new base station minimizes site space requirements, decreases rental costs and makes it easier to deploy in indoor and outdoor locations.
CDMA continues to represent a significant and growing opportunity in many markets. In particular, recent advances in CDMA technologies and the availability of a wide range of terminals have enhanced capabilities to meet subscriber expectations for advanced services. CDMA operators now have the opportunity to deploy solutions with a consistent approach and format,”
The company says the product will be commercially available for 800 and 1900MHz frequency bands by 2012 Q4. A demonstration of the new base station can be seen at the Nokia Siemens Networks stand at International CTIA Wireless 2012.
