Nokia to Release WiMAX Solutions

Nokia announces the Nokia Flexi WiMAX Base Station. Operators will benefit from the small and modular design of the Nokia Flexi WiMAX Base Station, which can optimize the costs of siting and operating WiMAX infrastructure. The compact size and light weight design of the base station modules minimizes the space needed, power consumption, and physical effort to install and run high quality WiMAX networks, and uses existing or new base station sites efficiently. It can be installed both indoors and outdoors and does not require air conditioning. Furthermore, its modularity will allow for easy capacity upgrades as traffic increases.

The Nokia Flexi WiMAX Base Station is part of Nokia's overall mobile WiMAX solution, which complements its current solutions to operators in cellular radio access technologies. Nokia's WiMAX solution includes unique end-to-end infrastructure capabilities with radio and core network solutions along with a comprehensive services business solutions portfolio. Nokia Services include fluent processes for planning, building, optimizing, maintaining networks, integrating end-user services to the network as well as taking on greater responsibilities for service delivery through managed service operations. Nokia's mobile WiMAX solution is designed to work seamlessly with Nokia Unified Core Networks and IP Multimedia Subsystem. Nokia is a founding and active member of the WiMAX Forum and the standardization process for the mobile WiMAX standard IEEE 802.16e-2005.

The Nokia Flexi WiMAX Base Station will be commercially available for the 2.5 GHz band at the end of 2007 and for 3.5 GHz in 1Q 2008. WiMAX-capable Nokia mobile devices are expected to be available in 2008.
