AirScale active antennas
Increase network performance and reduce costs
An essential part of the expanding growing AirScale Radio Access solution, Nokia AirScale Active Antennas draw on our rich heritage in antenna and radio frequency R&D and product realization.
AirScale Active Antennas integrate the best in radio and antenna technology.In addition to boosting RF performance, cell capacity and coverage, these high-efficiency antennas are also compact, which eases deployment and substantially reduces site costs.
Nokia offers a range of AirScale Active Antenna types, each delivering high performance proven by trials with the world’s leading network operators.
- Nokia serves over 330 LTE operators, more than any other vendor
- Nokia is a supplier to 18 of the 20 top LTE operators, serving 73 percent of all LTE subscribers
- On the path to 5G? Most compact Nokia AirScale 4.9G Massive MIMO Adaptive Antenna provides a bridge, with 5G-like user experiences.
Nokia and Sprint have jointly proven the benefits of massive MIMO in the TD-LTE 2.6 GHz band. Sprint becoming the first U.S. operator to demonstrate massive MIMO for TD-LTE spectrum using the Airscale massive MIMO Adaptive Antenna,64T64R, with 3D-Beamforming for both the downlink and uplink on an existing LTE frequency band.
