“Active” mobile broadband antenna puts users in the spotlight

38

A mobile antenna system, which creates moving beams of radio signals that can be directed at individual users or confined to a specific area, is being showcased at Mobile World Congress 2012. Nokia Siemens Networks’ Flexi Multiradio Antenna System improves base station capacity and coverage to help address surging mobile broadband traffic and provide a better customer experience.

 

The company is validating the improvements in base station performance in trials with Telecom Italia. The Flexi Multiradio Antenna System is based on Active Antenna System (AAS) technology, a key element in Nokia Siemens Networks’ Liquid Net architecture.

 

Nokia Siemens Networks will showcase a live Active Antenna System configuration at the company’s booth at Mobile World Congress 2012, Center Hall 8 Co1. The demo will illustrate beam forming, or the formation of dual-cell sector within the same antenna element, as well as the tilting capability of AAS.
