Provide capacity to efficiently meet huge data demands
Deploying new macro base stations to provide indoor coverage or add capacity is typically an economic non-starter. You need more cost-effective solutions to ease the coverage and capacity pressure on your existing infrastructure.
Nokia Flexi Zone suite is a 3G/LTE/Wi-Fi-capable small cell solution for offloading traffic from your macro network to an underlay street-level and indoor network. Use Flexi Zone Base Stations stand-alone or to create a zone covered by a cluster of low-power access points connected to a local controller. This configuration delivers a rich user experience while complementing your macro capacity and coverage, and all at a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than is possible with conventional small cells systems.
Investing in Flexi Zone is safe and future-proof because you can scale it as needed to satisfy changing capacity and performance demands all the way up to Ultra Dense Networks. Backhaul support is also easier because indoor deployments can use existing and Ethernet cabling, while the effect on the core network and O&M is minimized because up to 500 eNode Bs behave like a single base station to more easily manage radio frequency interference and simplify operation.
Complete with powerful features such as local policy definition and enforcement, Flexi Zone can also help you provide excellent service to enterprises with converged mobile and private LAN access achieved with the Nokia multi-access edge computing solution.
