* The compact, multi-technology, modular and weatherproof Nokia Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station is
an award winner and supports a throughput of 10 Gbps. It enables energy-efficient base station sites
with a 70% improvement in power consumption compared to traditional cabinet-based sites.
** Nokia Flexi Zone enables operators to increase capacity by deploying clusters of access points in
hot spots and zones. The award-winning Flexi Zone is an LTE/Wi-Fi-capable solution which
complements macro networks with an underlay of small cells at the street and indoor level. This
provides significant performance benefits, macro co-existence, traffic offloading, simplified
backhauling and low O&M impact. So operators can provide a remarkably rich customer experience in
urban capacity problem areas while keeping the total cost of ownership much lower than conventional
small-cell deployments.
