STOCKHOLM -- Consumers' increasing demand for mobile broadband is forcing operators to build out their networks for greater coverage, capacity and speed. However, existing sites can be full of equipment, introducing new units can increase site-rental costs, and regulations, zoning and permit processes can lead to long delays in the rollout of new sites.To help operators overcome these issues, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) today announced the launch of AIR 32 - an innovative new addition to the AIR portfolio - which will be showcased during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 in Ericsson Experience in Hall 2 in Barcelona, Spain. AIR addresses operator challenges by allowing for the introduction of LTE and HSPA without requiring additional antennas or radio units to be added to network sites. The highly integrated nature of the AIR product portfolio enables a faster, easier, high-quality installation, which minimizes revenue losses and the need for additional site visits. In addition, AIR 32 allows multiple active frequencies in a single unit, enabling a further 50-percent reduction of radio equipment.T-Mobile USA is currently using AIR in its ongoing network transformation program, and by doing so, it has experienced substantial improvements in ease of network deployment and performance.Ericsson AB
