Ultra Compact Network –
establish coverage in minutes
Executive Summary
Meeting the demand
Today, there is a growing demand for mission and business critical data applications in the public
safety environment, enterprise and industrial sector. Conventionally, these critical services are
implemented on top of commercial LTE networks to provide mobile broadband connections for
data applications such as video, database access, messaging, sensor connectivity, location
tracking and voice services.
Existing mobile services are often either unavailable or cannot deliver the required broadband
service level in many areas and an expensive, long latency satellite link to the core network is
In particular, Mission Critical networks must offer much higher resilience and service availability
than commercial mobile networks, making the public safety market the key driver for rapidly
deployable solutions.
Ultra Compact Network fulfils the market need for rapidly deployable solutions and pre-installed
resilience solutions. The Ultra Compact Network is a highly portable LTE solution hardened for
outdoor usage.
Solution overview
Nokia provides innovative rapidly deployable compact network solutions with different form
factors for enterprises, emergency and disaster recovery situations and to establish coverage in
remote areas. Our portable solutions with small form factor can establish connectivity in
Nokia Ultra Compact Network is the smallest form factor of our compact, deployable LTE
solutions: it can be carried in a backpack, be airborne (in a drone or weather balloon), or
transported in a regular-size vehicle such as a police car. For a deployable network that requires
broader coverage and more active users per cell, we offer Network in a Box.
Our compact network deployable solutions can be used as a standalone LTE network, system on
wheels solution and connected to the backhaul via cable, satellite or microwave.
Nokia Ultra Compact Network is ideal for rapidly establishing connectivity for first response units
in disasters such as forest fires and flood areas and in remote locations where coverage is
missing or compromised. It is also available for business critical communication in industrial sites
like mines and petrochemical plants.
Solution components
The solution components include:
• Nokia Flexi Zone small cell hardware and software for eNodeB functionality
• microCore for evolved packet core functions including IMS, HSS, PCRF
• Router for establishing LTE network extended coverage where needed
• Battery pack for enabling portable operation of the unit

• Simplified Operation and Maintenance (O&M) tool for local deployment and network
• Professional services to meet the specific needs of customers
Solution benefits
• Our portable compact network solutions with small form factor can establish connectivity in
• Dedicated/additional capacity in congested and remote areas
• Potential new business opportunities by providing LTE networks to industries
Nokia Ultra Compact Network is a new, light-weight solution for mission critical and business
critical communications, making it more efficient, portable and secure.
The solution complements Nokia’s end-to-end portfolio with rapidly deployable systems to
support first responder communications in disaster areas, as well as stand-alone wireless
communications at industrial sites like mines, petrochemical plants and oil rigs.
