Nokia introduces compact 4G mast in backpack for emergencies




Nokia comes with a light and compact 4G zendmastje, which should provide a mobile network within minutes. This will provide the business coverage in emergencies and events, with no masts are nearby.

The so-called ‘Ultra Compact Network is claimed for example, to put Nokia in remote areas, both inside and out. The zendmastje has a range of 75 kilometers and can provide up to four hundred users of coverage. The device is small enough to be carried in a backpack, making it easy to move. It is also conceivable that the cell is deployed via a drone or a weather balloon, because the weight is five kilograms. Connecting to the Internet gets the mast-in-backpack over wired internet, satellite or radio links.

The small zendmastje requires a battery or a power of 100W and can be used to create a stand-alone network or via a backhaul to form an extension of an existing 4G network. So network operators can use the technology to fill gaps in their network. In addition, it is to be put in the cell when the failure of a regular network, for instance due to overload. So pale that the networks include Mobistar and Proximus were severely disrupted during the attacks in Brussels because many people tried to call time.

The ‘Ultra Compact Network is a smaller version of the Network in a Box “that Nokia last year introduced . This involves a larger version of 40kg. Nokia shows this smaller version of the Critical Communications World Fair in the RAI in Amsterdam.
