Nokia Siemens Networks launched its new FlexiPacket Microwave platform for the North America market this week at CTIA Wireless 2011 in Orlando, Fla. According to the company, the platform includes programmable software to provide operations for both hybrid and full packet traffic mode. A common all-outdoor microwave radio allows operators to migrate various different links independently with a capacity of up to 2Gbps.

It was embedded in Nokia Siemens Networks’ HSPA+ display at the show, demonstrating flat mobile backhaul in an end-to-end scenario, the company said in a release. The platform’s software features make capacity upgrades simple and flexible, allowing operators to scale up according to their need.

“With microwave transport networks moving toward high-capacity all-IP, operators want simplicity in deployment, wide range of scalability and the convenience of migrating parts of the network, rather than the whole network in one go,” said Pathmal Gunawardana, the firm’s head of transport networks in North America.
