[Barcelona, Spain, February 28, 2018] At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, Huawei’s Ultra-broadband Radio Frequency (RF) Solution Family won the Best Mobile Infrastructure award. This award recognizes Huawei’s commitment to a customer-centric approach to improving the user experience and building next-generation mobile network infrastructure. The award is also a reflection of Huawei’s efforts in helping carriers reduce end-to-end operational expenditure throughout the lifecycle of networks.
The Ultra-broadband RF Solution Family is innovatively designed to meet carrier needs for multiple-frequency networks. It helps carriers cope with challenges faced during mobile network rollouts, to build experience-centric digital mobile networks that deliver premium experiences to users.
The solution’s advanced power amplifier technology and algorithm allow each module to support higher bandwidth, more frequency bands, and more radio access technologies (RATs). One highlight of the solution is that it supports multiple-antenna technology, which effectively boosts network capacity. In the past, carriers could only build single-frequency and single-mode networks. Huawei’s solution has reshaped this traditional model, and the result is shorter installation time and lower rental. Carriers don’t have to replace as many antennas and reconstruct as many sites during capacity expansion and evolution as they did in the past. Huawei’s CloudAIR power cloudification technology also enables the solution to further reduce site energy consumption.
The Ultra-broadband RF Solution Family encompasses a series of products aimed at meeting customer demand for capacity expansion under different scenarios of 5G evolution. For example, Huawei’s ultra-broadband remote radio unit (RRU) and active antenna unit (AAU) provide coverage in common scenarios by simplifying site configurations and cutting construction costs. For urban traffic hot spots, Huawei’s Massive MIMO products increase network capacity by five-fold, decrease cost per bit, and offer superior user experience. Huawei’s LampSite products deliver seamless indoor broadband coverage and allow as many as four carriers to share each site, thus reducing their ROI cycles.
The judges remarked, “An impressive step forward for this vendor. It takes the single RAN concept into the 5G era bringing significant capex and opex savings to its mobile operator partners.”
Future sites will evolve to support multiple frequency bands and multiple RATs. On the road to 5G, Huawei will continue to innovate in the Ultra-broadband RF Solution Family and help carriers deploy high-performing mobile infrastructure with superior user experience.
