At the Global Mobile Broadband Forum 2022 (MBBF2022), Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei ICT Products & Solutions and Huawei Wireless Solution, released a One 5G concept and set of solutions designed to facilitate the evolution of all bands to 5G.
MetaAAU with ELAA Improves TDD Uplink and Downlink Coverage While Reducing Energy Consumption
Huawei’s MetaAAU boosts performance and energy efficiency to new levels, by making use of extremely large antenna array (ELAA) technology. It has been proven to boost uplink and downlink user experience by 30% given the same amount of power consumption, and ensure the same level of coverage while consuming 30% less energy.
Ultra-wideband and Multi-antenna Technologies Simplify Deployment with Fragmented FDD Spectrum and Improve Spectral Efficiency
Huawei’s ultra-wideband 4T4R RRU supports simplified deployment and millisecond-level power sharing across all carriers, bands, and RATs, which reduces power consumption by 30% while ensuring the same level of GU coverage. Another Huawei product, dual-band 8T8R RRU that supports both the 1.8 GHz and 2.1 GHz bands, can increase 4G and 5G network capacity by 1.5 and 3 times, respectively. When used with the 8T8R native antennas of the Hertz platform, 8T8R RRU is able to reduce energy consumption by 15%. For single-pole scenarios, Huawei provides the FDD BladeAAU solution, which is the industry’s first to combine FDD Massive MIMO AAUs and sub-3 GHz passive antennas.
LampSite and RuralLink Solutions Enable Ubiquitous 5G
Huawei has developed the LampSite 5.0 solution that features TDD+FDD multi-band and multi-RAT combination. The new setup reduces hardware weight and volume by 25% and slashes power consumption by 40%. Also, mmWave is introduced for the LampSite solution to deliver indoor 10 Gbps capacity based on a distributed architecture and ultra-large bandwidth. The company has also launched the RuralLink solution that is designed for remote areas.
Better Mobility and Lower Propagation Loss Allow for the Large-Scale Commercial Deployment of mmWave in Outdoor Hotspots and Indoor Scenarios
In outdoor hotspot scenarios, Huawei’s mmWave solution uses high equivalent isotropic radiated power (EIRP) and ELAA hardware to improve mmWave coverage. It also makes use of iBeam and intelligent high- and low-band coordination algorithm to achieve precise beam alignment and fast tracking.
In indoor scenarios, Huawei’s LampSite 5.0 works, providing an ultra-large capacity of more than 10 Gbps.
IntelligentRAN Empowers Intelligent 5G Networks
Huawei’s IntelligentRAN architecture achieves layered intelligence to help operators reduce network O&M costs, open network capabilities, and create more business opportunities.
In addition, the combination of IntelligentRAN and One 5G all-band solutions unlocks the full potential of all bands including TDD, FDD, and mmWave, and facilitates in-depth all-band coordination for better network performance and lower power consumption, following the principle: Bands Work as One and Networks Work as One.
The Global Mobile Broadband Forum 2022 is hosted by Huawei, together with its industry partners GSMA and GTI. This annual forum gathers mobile network carriers, vertical industry leaders, and ecosystem partners from around the world to discuss how to make 5G a commercial success, as well as other high-priority industry topics like green development, intelligence, and 5G evolution.
