Radio access networks

Build your path to 5G and the IoT

Radio access that’s making 5G a reality

Ultra-low latency, huge connectivity, extreme capacity. To meet these requirements, 5G networks need to be highly versatile, able to change their architecture to support a vast range of services.

Today´s investments must also assure that the radio network is future-proof, ready for the coming demands, however and whenever they arrive. By investing wisely now, operators can minimize their future CAPEX, target zero emissions to boost profitability and maximize the value of both their licensed and unlicensed spectrum.

Nokia AirScale Radio Access achieves all this and more by running all technologies in the same radio access, offering huge capacity scaling and market-leading latency and connectivity. AirScale Radio Access is industry-first commercial end-to-end 5G solution enabling operators to capitalize early on 5G. 

Nokia's AirScale Radio Access Portfolio

Our AirScale Radio Access portfolio offers you a modular approach to building networks that deliver the extreme capacity, massive connectivity and ultra-low latency required for 5G services. Part of the end-to-end Nokia 5G Future X portfolio, it supports all radio access technologies including 4.9G, which provides future service continuity with 5G networks. The AirScale portfolio also includes our commercially available AirScale Cloud RAN solution, which enables you to reap the benefits of moving to the cloud.
