The Nokia TD-LTE solution begins with our high capacity Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station built with broad range of radio options such as our newest TD-LTE 4-pipe radio module, TD-LTE 6-pipe radio module and TD-LTE 8-pipe radio module. It also includes our industry high capacity baseband - Flexi Multiradio system module. The Flexi Multiradio system module is unique with its integrated transport module, LTE-Advanced capability, and is capable of delivering up to 10Gbps capacity in a Liquid Radio baseband pool architecture.

Nokia TD-LTE solution includes a number of unique features that dramatically expand capacity and coverage – for example, our 6-sector site capability delivers up to 80% more capacity and 40% more coverage than typical 3 sectors systems.1

Our Smart Scheduler capability enables top network quality and up to 40% lower TCO by enabling more simultaneous subscribers in a given site.2 In addition, our interference mitigation techniques (IMT) field software is delivering more than 100% improvement in downlink and cell throughput and 35% improvement in uplink throughput – resulting in fantastic user experiences with fewer sites deployed.3
