Airtel to enhance its 3G network in Mumbai, West Bengal and Bihar, Using radio access network advanced platform

By November 13th, 2014 AT 5:16 PM

Airtel will enhance its 3G network in the Mumbai, West Bengal and Bihar telecom circles using Nokia’s latest Single RAN (radio access network) Advanced platform.  The deal includes an India-first dual band, dual carrier 3G network implementation, refarming 900 MHz to complement Mumbai’s existing 3G network on 2100 MHz. This will enable higher throughput and thus improved 3G services.

Under the contract, Nokia Networks will supply its Single RAN Advanced platform, based on its energy-efficient Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station. This multi-standard radio platform is optimal because it will also support Bharti Airtel in its TD-LTE rollout and pave the way to FDD-LTE in the near future.

In addition, Nokia Networks will deploy its Flexi Lite Base Station, a small all-in-one base station optimized for indoor and outdoor micro-cell deployments to provide the best coverage in densely crowded areas. Nokia will also supply its extremely compact, highly scalable and flexible multi-technology, all-IP multicontroller RNC (mcRNC).

It’s true, from last few days i’m getting Airtel 3G network in my area (Village near Ghatal) but speed is not so high. SpeedTest.net showed 4.4mbps max. But with just 2/3 towers in village area, you can’t expect too much. Hope Airtel will enhance network capacity shortly.
