New Delhi: Finnish telecom giant Nokia Oyj on Thursday said it had completed the acquisition of the Australian company Mesaplexx Pty Ltd to boost its radio capabilities in the networks business.

“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% or more,” Nokia said in a statement.

Nokia said it is continually improving its radio systems while making them smaller, lighter and more efficient.

“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,” said Marc Rouanne, executive vice-president of mobile broadband at Nokia.

Every base station needs radio frequency filters to ensure that spectrum can be shared within a geographical area, and that the same antenna can be used to both transmit and receive signals.

“The Mesaplexx expertise could help improve radio performance, leading to higher capacity and more efficient networks. This technology would also help reduce overall cost and power consumption and keep radio signal loss to a minimum,” Nokia said.
