AirScale Radio

Broad portfolio of remote radio heads and radio modules


The Nokia AirScale radio portfolio supports all radio access technologies 2G, 3G, FDD and TDD 4G and 5G, as well as the numerous frequency bands around the world.

With a wide choice of performance characteristics, including RF power outputs, antenna port configurations and compact, easy to deploy form factors, these radios are in service with operators all over the World.

New generation 8T8R remote radio heads – introducing the AirScale Osprey portfolio

Our AirScale Osprey portfolio of 8T8R radios uses the same, latest Nokia ReefShark SoC technology as the new massive MIMO antennas. This enables efficient 5G mid-band everywhere.

The new AirScale Osprey 8 remote radio with beamforming, delivers a total RF power output of 320 Watts across several operating modes. Combined with a low weight compact form-factor and multiple mounting options this high-performance radio offers deployment flexibility across a wide range of use cases.

It also supports high RF bandwidths, making it ideal for deployment in instances of fragmented spectrum or in network sharing use cases. The supported bandwidth can mean the difference between the deployment of one or multiple radios. This enables leaner sites and lower costs.

Leading in multi-band radios

Nokia is a leader in multi-band radios – a more compact solution than using individual radios for each frequency band required. The smaller footprint of multi-band makes them easier and quicker to deploy, enabling the leanest site solutions and faster time to market. AirScale radios are available in single-, dual- and triple-band versions as well as Nokia’s unique high power RF modules.


Integrated passive intermodulation (PIM) cancellation

AirScale radios integrate the very latest design innovations and technology. For instance, many radios directly integrate Nokia unique features, such as passive intermodulation cancellation (PIM) to deliver high performance at all times, without the need for additional hardware.

Simplified deployment

With compact and easy to deploy form factors, AirScale radios are designed for all site requirements and have a wide variety of mounting options, including Nokia’s unique ‘One-clip’ rail mount system. One-clip is simple to use, speeding-up deployment and ensuring that the site is “on-air” as soon as possible; it also means that any future site changes can easily be made.

All AirScale radios are designed to deliver the highest performance, long-life and energy efficiency - year after year and so minimize the total cost of ownership. Even our radios deployed since 2012 can support 5G. Good for mobile operators and the planet alike.
