NSN and Sprint Demonstrate 2.6 Gbps TD-LTE Throughput

NSN Flexi BTS

Nokia Solutions and Networks and US operator Sprint will demonstrate 2.6 Gbps throughput over a single sector at Mobile World Congress 2014 using its commercially available Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station. NSN is also launching a high-capacity Flexi Multiradio System Module for TD-LTE that can deliver up to 5 Gbps of peak throughput from a single site.

NSN has aggregated 120 MHz of Sprint’s TDD spectrum to achieve speed of 2.6 Gbps using its commercial Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station.

According to NSN, with the enhanced Flexi Multiradio System Module, operators can roll out TD-LTE networks with fewer base stations and fewer sites, saving up to 50 percent in capital expenses and operational costs. The module features integrated transport technology, removing the need for additional hardware for connecting to transport networks. IPsec security is also built in, providing a secure tunnel between the base station and core network to protect traffic from eavesdropping, unauthorized access or distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
