Nokia launches new solutions for 3G and mobile Internet.
Nokia has unveiled a new range of solutions for 3G networks and mobile Internet application platforms for operators and service providers.
The new solutions and platforms, which were unveiled at the UMTS 2000 Congress in Barcelona, Spain, are part of Nokia's strategy of providing the first 3GPP compliant 3G networks with open interfaces in 2001.
The Nokia mPlatform Solution is an open platform for operators and service providers to deploy mobile Internet services, and is network and terminal independent so it works across various access methods from WAP to GRPS to 3G and fixed Internet technologies. Nokia has also announced the Nokia mPosition and Nokia mCatch location-based services solutions.
Nokia's new family of WCDMA base stations supports the Nokia Smart Radio Concept and enables operators to improve capacity by up to 75% and use roughly 30% fewer sites compared to traditional rollout methods. The range comprises three new base stations - Optima, Optima Compact and Optima Supreme - which are built on the Nokia UltraSite WCDMA Base Station and site solution. All are available from the second half of 2001.
Nokia's new Common Radio Resource Management (CRRM) solution is claimed to offer a breakthrough in IP Radio Access Network Technology. CRRM places radio resource control for several radio network access standards into a single server and increases network capacity by up to 50%.
The Nokia NetAct Configurator family of network management solutions unveiled by Nokia is designed to support a smooth transition to next generation networks and will provide 'significant' cost and efficiency benefits, Nokia claims. Finally the Nokia 3G SGSN combines the power of IP routing with the flexibility of mobile networks and is designed to be optimised for the new levels and types of traffic in 3G.
Pricing and availability details for the new products were not revealed.
