NEC Launches Sales of Compact All-in-one LTE Base Station
OREANDA-NEWS. February 07, 2012. NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today the sales launch of the MB4300, a compact all-in-one LTE base station system.
The MB4300 series allows for a wide range of installation options in areas with limited space, such as rooftops and compact indoor spaces. This series paves the way for more cost effective installation of small cell base stations, helps boost capacity and improves overall performance.
This enhanced series features a high function processor with a volume of less than 10L, a weight of less than 10kg and an output power of 2 x 5W (MIMO). Furthermore, the MB4300 can serve up to 200 subscribers, in spite of its small radius of coverage.
The MB4300 series also features advanced SON (self-organizing network) for autonomous network configuration, optimization and automated network management, which reduces time for deployment and enables telecom carriers to reduce their CAPEX and OPEX.
Moreover, compatibility with multiple manufacturers' products in a single network facilitates the flexible construction and operation of base stations and results in high communication quality.
"In response to the rapid growth in communication traffic accompanying the increased use of smartphones and tablets, telecom carriers are working to boost communication capacity by introducing LTE technology and enhancing the efficiency of wireless capacity," said Kazuya Hashimoto, Vice President and Senior General Manager at NEC Corporation. "There is also greater demand for environments that ensure stable communications in areas where communication speeds are likely to fall due to heavy traffic or where radio waves are weak. NEC is confident in the ability of this innovative new base station to fully meet these market needs."
This system will be on display in the NEC booth at Mobile World Congress 2012, held from February 27, 2012 to March 1, 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.
