  9. 9. Being cloud-based, AirScale makes resources for new functions available in minutes instead of the months conventional networks need. You can quickly react to new demands by launching services to boost business, or partner with over-the-top (OTT) players. AirScale Cloud RAN delivers high bandwidth and low latency on existing assets like aggregation sites and transport infrastructure. Radio functions can be run in large centralized data centers or smaller distributed sites, or a combination of both. Yet, all components are efficiently managed as a single cloud. But that’s not all. AirScale runs Nokia Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) on the same AirFrame data center /cloud infrastructure servers as the Cloud RAN. This makes it easy for applications and services to seamlessly use real radio data. Your customers can enjoy locally relevant services with near-zero latency. Nokia AirScale Cloud RAN is commercially proven Nokia has shown the world’s first demonstration of Cloud Single RAN for 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G baseband, as well as 2G and 3G radio network controllers in the cloud. In addition, SK Telecom in Korea has used AirScale to achieve the world’s first deployment of Cloud RAN in a commercial network. The cloud base station features a functional split between real-time and non-real-time traffic, bridging 350 km on the midhaul interface over Ethernet between the radio access point and AirFrame Data Center while maintaining excellent key performance indicators (KPIs).

  12. 12. With around 80 percent of a network’s energy being consumed by base station sites, energy efficiency makes good business sense by helping you to cut costs and lower emissions by decoupling traffic growth from the energy bill. Nokia AirScale Base Station works in combination with clever energy-saving features such as very low energy use when there is no traffic, or shutting off network layers experiencing low traffic, to reduce energy consumption. The result is up to 60 percent higher energy efficiency. With sites consuming less energy, you can begin to migrate your network to carbon-free energy. This can be in the form of grid-based or Nokia base station renewable solutions to achieve further cost savings and substantially reduced emissions. High-power single and multiband radios reduce the number of radio units needed at sites, making AirScale base station easier and faster to set up with as much as 66 percent less installation time.
