Nokia Siemens Networks is expanding its LTE portfolio with aim to help mobile operators increase their coverage and further improve network efficiency and speed. The company has expanded its Flexi Multiradio Base Station family to cover the Asia Pacific Telecommunity (APT) 700 MHz spectrum to enable smooth LTE rollouts using the ‘Digital Dividend’ in the Asia Pacific region, Latin America and other parts of the world. 

The company also announced increasing the efficiency and speed of multiband LTE by launching Liquid Radio LTE load-balancing, and plans the commercial launch of carrier aggregation for LTE-Advanced in 2013. 

Building on its early experience from the 800 MHz Digital Dividend spectrum deployment of LTE in Europe, Nokia Siemens Networks has added a 6-pipe radio module for the APT 700 MHz band to its Flexi Multiradio Base Station family. Japan, Australia, New Zealand, other Asia Pacific countries, and most recently Mexico, intend to adopt the APT 700 MHz spectrum as part of their mobile broadband strategy.

The Liquid Radio LTE load-balancing feature will be available by the end of 2012. The 6-pipe radio module for APT 700 and support of LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation will be available during the second half of 2013.
