Radio Access Networks
Scalable coverage and capacity
We create technology that helps the world act together. Our solutions enable service providers, industries and the public sector to create the critical networks that bring together the world's people, machines and devices.
5G and Radio Access Networks
The adoption of 5G is happening faster than any previous cellular technology. For consumers, 5G offers services ranging from high-speed mobile and fixed-wireless access to cloud gaming, HD video and AR/VR/Mixed Reality. For enterprises, 5G enables industry 4.0 and a global connectivity layer for smart devices and vehicles.
These capabilities all require scalable high performance radio access networks (RAN) for the connection of users and devices to the network.
Nokia RAN products are inherently future-proof: for instance, Nokia radios from 2012 onwards can be upgraded to 5G by software, accelerating 5G rollouts.
Nokia RAN combines the efficiency of Single RAN supporting 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G and the flexibility of cloud RAN and open RAN.
Nokia ReefShark System on Chip enables high performance, capacity and energy efficiency.
