Nokia Siemens Networks launched an upgraded Liquid Radio module and customer experience management (CEM) suite at CommunicAsia2011, and announced an investment in a US chipmaker.

The company debuted a high-power radio module for its Flexi Multi-radio base station family, that promises a 40% performance improvement at the edge of cells.

NSN is touting the improved efficiency as a way to reduce the size of hardware required per base station. Frequency variants of the radio module, including on the 900-MHz, 1.8-GHz and 2.1-GHz bands, will be rolled out at the beginning of next year.

NSN is also using the event to introduce an expanded customer experience management suite, CEM 2.0. The system, already in use by an Asian regional operator, is a collection of pre-integrated software to interpret network, customer, service and device data.

NSN, meanwhile, announced it had bought into US-based semiconductor developer ClariPhy for an undisclosed sum. The vendor said it had made the investment to support ClariPhy’s development of single-chip complementary metal oxide semiconductor integrated circuits for optical network digital signal processing.

“Together with our R&D, ClariPhy will enable us to be at the forefront of [development of] next-generation optical platforms capable of 400G and beyond,” NSN’s optical chief Vesa Tykkyläinen said.

CRM 2.0 is being demonstrated at the Hibiscus rooms 3612 / 3611 / 3610 / 3710.
