Why a new platform?

1. FIERCE PRICE COMPETITION, GROSS MARGINS UNDER HUGE


PRESSURE
Produce a new platform having a clearly lower cost base
Substantial UltraSite cost reductions not easy nor cheap to achieve

2. MODERNISATION AND VENDOR EXITS OPEN UP POSSIBILITIES FOR


MARKET SHARE EXPANSION
Increased market share with a new, differentiated offering
Instead of PIUs, design self-supporting (mechanically) compatible with Flexi WCDMA
Supports a wider range of site types with reduction of OPEX (when in stacks) and IMPEX
(enables new ways to build sites)
Despite being a modular BTS, it can also support traditional cabinet-based site designs

Nokia Flexi EDGE BTS Product Overview
Revolutionary BTS with weather-proof modules
Installation in stacks, on walls, poles, in 19racks or cabinets
Same modules for indoors and outdoors, macro- and microcellular sites
Temperature range -33C +50 C (temporarily +55 C)
Site capacity with virtually no limits
1 to 24 TRX in 1-6* sectors under 1 BCF
Up to 216 TRX per site
24 TRX in the volume of a traditional BTS cabinet
Industry leading radio performance
TRX output power 47 dBm, sensitivity 115.5 dBm (with 2-way UL div)
Dual TRX module (DTRX) optimal for both capacity and coverage modes
In Capacity mode (CaM) both TRXs of DTRX are used for traffic
In Double Power TRX (DPTRX) mode the TRX output power is 49.5 dBm
In Coverage mode (CoM) 30-50% fewer sites by boosting both down- and uplink
i.e., DPTRX+IDD+4-way diversity: 53 dBm (200W)
* Consideration in next SW revision to have 1-12 sectors

Nokia Flexi BTS platform:
Novel approach for GSM/EDGE/WCDMA/HSPA/WiMAX BTS sites

BTS configurations are built with weather-resistant


modules Example of 2+2+2 TRX
Capacity is expanded by configuration
Adding modules
Software license keys
Same modules used for all site types 538mm
Indoor and outdoor
Micro- and macrocellular
From 1 to 216 TRX configurations 560mm
Modules can be installed to walls, poles, stacks, 19racks, 447mm
Nokia Flexi BTS cabinets or in swap-out situations
Common Nokia Flexi platform brings modularity to
GSM/EDGE and WCDMA/HSPA BTS sites
Nokia is the first and only vendor to adopt the novel
modular approach
