Australian company Mesaplexx Pty Limited has been acquired by Finnish telecom giant Nokia for an undisclosed amount. With the acquisition Nokia is aiming high to boost its radio capabilities in the networks business.
Mesaplexx has unique know-how in developing compact, high performance radio frequency (RF) filter technology for the mobile industry.
Nokia said in a press release, “The Nokia Flexi family of radio access base stations offers cutting-edge solutions that balance energy efficiency, power output and form factor. Adding the very advanced Mesaplexx technology can enhance them further, potentially reducing small cells form factor by 30 per cent or more.”
In addition of making it radio systems smaller, lighter and more efficient the telecom company is also working continuously on their improvement.
“Those familiar with radio technologies know that while there has been a lot of progress in recent years, filters are one area where new innovations can still yield significant improvements in performance,” Mobile Broadband at Nokia Executive Vice President Marc Rouanne said.
In order to ensure that spectrum can be shared within the same geographical area, every base station needs RF filters and also that the same antenna can serve for both transmit and receive purposes. The Mesaplexx expertise could help improve radio performance, leading to higher capacity and more efficient networks by reducing overall cost and power consumption.
With this transaction, Nokia continues to invest in technology innovation for the best mobile broadband experience.
