Nokia Siemens Claims to Triple CDMA 1X Capacity
Nokia Siemens Networks today announced the addition of 1X Advanced to its CDMA base station technology portfolio. When fully deployed, Nokia Siemens says that its 1X Advanced technology will allow network operators to improve call quality and coverage, as well as handle thrice the volume of voice and data traffic. Nokia Siemens says the coverage and capacity boost requires only a board upgrade to existing base stations. Last, the new 1X Advanced technology is more energy efficient, which will allow network operators to reduce the cost or running base stations. Nokia Siemens 1X Advanced boards will be available in volume by the end of the year.
