Nokia and Telefónica Chile implement indoor small cell project in Santiago shopping centre
Announced Date: 5/10/2016 Published Date: 5/18/2016

Nokia and Telefónica Chile have completed what they claims is the largest indoor deployment of small cells to meet the growing 3G and 4G data demands of mobile device users at the Costanera shopping centre in Santiago, Chile.

To ensure Telefonica Chile meets the connectivity expectations of its subscribers visiting the Costanera centre, Nokia replaced and upgraded the existing distributed antenna system (DAS) with a high-capacity, high-coverage Flexi Zone small cells network. Ease of deployment and the ability to upgrade 3G small cells to 4G LTE will allow Telefónica Chile to efficiently scale capacity as customer demand evolves.

The Nokia solution is based on the high-capacity Flexi Zone indoor Pico BTS to simultaneously meet demands of up to 4,400 active 3G and 4G LTE users per shopping floor and the Flexi Zone Micro BTS serving lower demand in the car park areas.
