Nokia Siemens launched three new 4G devices at PT Expo Comm in Beijing, China. The devices allow consumers to enjoy broadband access at up to 102 Mbps downlink and 51 Mbps uplink to support data-intensive services on TD-LTE (time division-duplex, long term evolution) networks.
The devices address broadband access requirements that range from basic connectivity in under-served regions, to high-speed, mobile broadband in dense metro areas. All are now available to customers.
A plug-and-play USB dongle, the USB-lte 7210 offers mobile broadband to laptops and compatible tablets whilst on the move. Nokia Siemens Networks CPEi-lte 7212 is a wireless router built for indoor use that provides fixed wireless connectivity to TD-LTE services via WiFi or Ethernet.
[advt]A further wireless router, Nokia Siemens Networks CPEo-lte 7210, built to withstand the weather and be mounted outdoors, can also provide broadband access. The devices are commercially available to support 4G services using the TD-LTE standard in the 2.3 GHz and 2.6 GHz bands allocated for wireless broadband in many parts of the globe.
The devices use techniques such as Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), transmit diversity, and receiver sensitivity, exceeding 3GPP standards to improve performance and reduce costs. These features allow operators to offer increased throughput, and better indoor coverage using fewer cell sites. In addition, consumers benefit from minimal orientation loss with the devices, using the device optimally in any position or orientation.
The new TD-LTE devices launched by Nokia Siemens Networks include:
- USB-lte 7210: It is a TD-LTE USB wireless modem designed to be connected directly to PCs. It can be used indoors, outdoors, at home or on the move via a common USB interface available on the end user’s laptop, netbook or tablet for a plug-and-play experience with installation required.
- CPEi-lte 7212: It is a plug-and-play; high-performance indoor modem designed to be installed inside customer’s location featuring an Ethernet port as well as integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi. The device is a desktop unit that provides fixed and nomadic access.
- CPEo-lte 7210: It is an outdoor modem for cost-effective and convenient wireless broadband access with hassle-free installation. It incorporates design features that minimize the time, effort and cost of bringing broadband and voice service to new subscriber locations.
