[Barcelona, Spain, March 3, 2022] At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2022, Huawei launched an all-new microwave solution for 50 Gbps E-band, aiming to meet ultra-high bandwidth needs in dense urban areas. The transmission range of long-range E-band is 50% greater than the industry average, which can cover dense urban areas in a single hop. For traditional frequency bands, Huawei also unveiled a simplified SuperLink solution for suburban areas, reaching 10 Gbps capacity over 40 km, as well as an ECOwave solution designed to save network power across all the bands, helping to expand the deployment of 5G.
The demand for higher bandwidth will only skyrocket with the development of 5G. To help address these challenges and achieve efficient spectrum utilization, Huawei has launched an E-band 2T2R solution that enables a single device to support XPIC and provides transmission capacity of up to 25 Gbps, i.e. 2.5 times that of existing single-channel devices. With the Super MIMO solution, Huawei also introduced the industry’s first single-antenna 50 Gbps E-band, meeting the bandwidth requirements of dense urban areas. Huawei’s built-in long-range E-band improves transmission power by 6dB to 24dBm. With IBT antennas, the transmission range is extended by 50% from 3.5km to 5km, making it ideal for urban environments and achieving full coverage in a single hop. To simplify deployment, IBT antennas are used so that E-bands can be installed at pole sites. IBT antennas have already been widely applied in more than 20 global networks.
For suburban areas, Huawei offers a simplified SuperLink solution with low frequency bands and wide bandwidth, which consists of the industry’s first 3-in-1 multi-band antenna and Quad Carrier AC ODU to transmit data at 10 Gbps over 40 km, reducing the amount of overhead and space required by 70% and providing full long-distance coverage in suburban areas.
Huawei’s all-band ECOwave solution is designed for a world committed to energy efficiency and carbon reduction. Device-level and link-level power-saving technologies reduce inventory network power consumption by up to 10%. Simplified solutions can reduce the number of hardware devices for new networks. When these technologies are all used together, total energy consumption can be reduced by up to 20%, making it the most efficient solution in its class.
MWC22 Barcelona runs from February 28 to March 3 in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei showcases its products and solutions at booth 1:50 at Fira Gran Via Hall 1. Together with global carriers, industry professionals, and thought leaders, we look at topics such as trends in the industry, GUIDE to the Future and green development to envision the future of digital networks.
