Nokia touts its LTE Network in a box

Targeting public safety and the energy industry, Nokia Networks (NYSE:NOK) is launching a compact, rapidly deployable LTE network in a box with macro site capacity and coverage to provide real-time communication services.

Nokia says its network in a box can serve as a dedicated small network for major industrial sites. It also enables public safety communications at emergency scenes where wide area network coverage isn't available. Mobile operators can use the miniature LTE network to bring high-bandwidth connectivity to rural and remote areas.

The Nokia Network in a box is a compact macro base station with an integrated core network ready to operate on either FDD or TD-LTE bands, along with built-in ports for external IP connectivity.

Nokia Networks is working with several partners, including Athonet, for building applications and network functions based on network in a box. For more on Nokia's network in a box, see the release.
