Huawei is launching a full 5G solution series for "1+N" target networks

prnewswire | November 16, 2020

At the 2020 Global Mobile Broadband Forum (MBBF), Mr. Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei Wireless Network Solution, divulged the future-arranged "1+N" 5G target organizations and delivered a full arrangement of 5G answers for building rearranged "1+N" 5G networks. "To grasp the moving toward brilliant decade of 5G, we have to develop our organizations towards 5G with full range and assemble one high-data transfer capacity rearranged target network that guarantees universal availability with on-request overlay of 'N' abilities," said Yang.

5G isn't just another age of versatile innovation, it likewise speaks to the formation of new business, environments, and openings. 5G includes more expanded administrations and separated necessities in contrast with 4G. The association of individuals requires an adjacent high-data transfer capacity organization to give a superior involvement with enormously diminished per-bit costs. The association of things likewise requires omnipresent inclusion to help the enormous network of IoT terminals. Industry associations, which are applied first in quite a while, require capacities, for example, adaptable high uplink, low idleness, and high-exactness situating to be sent on request. To meet these separated prerequisites, Huawei proposes "1+N" 5G target networks for full-range advancement toward 5G and building a pervasive high-limit establishment organization, with high-data transmission mid-groups as its center and other recurrence groups to accomplish separated advantages and on-request overlay of 'N' capacities.

Manufacture One Foundation Network for Ubiquitous Connectivity

Any undertaking starts with one stage. Client experience is the premise whereupon jumped 5G administrations are created. The expense per piece of 5G networks must be diminished to offer constant cross-age client experience. The mix of high-transmission capacity mid-groups and Massive MIMO (M-MIMO) is the way to building up a high-transfer speed organization to accomplish universal network.

Scaled arrangement worldwide has indicated that TDD high-transfer speed M-MIMO has been exceptionally perceived over the business. TDD mid-band M-MIMO accomplishes co-inclusion at similar locales with 1.8 GHz and a negligible of a ten times improvement in client experience contrasted and that of 4G. The presentation of a similar equipment changes significantly with various calculations. As the foundation of M-MIMO execution, calculations extraordinarily influence the exhibition of business organizations. Huawei's spearheading calculations will empower administrators to fundamentally improve client experience and the cell limit of 5G networks. Huawei's versatile high goal (AHR) calculation will assist administrators with facilitating grow network limit in situations with high client thickness and solid impedance. The UL/DL decoupling arrangement improves the uplink inclusion of TDD mid-band. It improves M-MIMO inclusion by 6 dB to 7 dB in the uplink and by 2 dB to 3 dB in the downlink. At MBBF 2020, Huawei additionally delivered the multi-band UL/DL decoupling arrangement, which underpins the mix of 3.5 GHz/3.7 GHz and 1.8 GHz/2.1 GHz/700 MHz, 2.6 GHz and 1.8 GHz/700 MHz, 4.9 GHz and 2.3 GHz.

In 2019, Huawei dispatched the business' first Blade AAU, which coordinates Sub-3 GHz and 32T32R M-MIMO to address the issue of amazingly restricted recieving wire spaces in certain business sectors, empowering disentangled sending of single-radio wire 5G M-MIMO. This year, Huawei delivered Blade AAU Pro, which underpins 64T64R M-MIMO and Sub-3 GHz full-band. The arrangement accompanies the special "straightforward" reception apparatus innovation which rearranges organization and subsequently decreases costs.

For business sectors in which high-transfer speed TDD is difficult to find or the limit load is weighty, Huawei dispatched the business' first FDD M-MIMO, which generously improves cell ability to three to multiple times that of 4T4R organizations. The imaginative metamaterial dipole plan and tiny without pim channel innovation empower FDD M-MIMO to have a plentifulness width of under 500 mm and designing details comparable to TDD M-MIMO.
"Huawei's wide array of mid-band M-MIMO solutions and advanced software algorithms can help operators build a mid-band high-bandwidth foundation network for ubiquitous connectivity that delivers optimal user experience," Yang added.

How "N" Capabilities Simplify Deployment and Offer Key Benefits

While running basic services on high-bandwidth mid-band network bands, operators can also develop differentiated advantages by using other spectrums, such as those assigned for FDD or Super Uplink. But this poses challenges such as fragmented spectrums, diversified channels and sectors, and varying spectrum lifecycles. "To innovate 'N' capabilities, we need to simplify deployment while maintaining diversity and order," said Yang.

At MBBF 2020, Huawei released its highly integrated Blade Pro portfolio for FDD applications. This portfolio includes the industry-acclaimed ultra-wideband RRU, which slashes the number of required devices by two thirds by integrating three low or three intermediate FDD bands into one box, greatly simplifying deployment. It also supports dynamic power sharing on multiple bands, making this RRU extremely energy efficient. The Blade Pro flexible channel solution, powered by the industry's first digital software-defined antenna (SDA) and 8T8R RRU, is perfect for various scenarios due to its exceptional flexibility. It supports multi-TX, multi-sector coverage to deliver large capacity and 2 x 4T4R or 4 x 2T2R on one module to cover traffic lines or serve tubular tower sites.

Pole sites can close coverage gaps, offload traffic, and enhance the uplink in cases where macro base stations can provide only basic, incomplete coverage. Huawei also launched a series of simplified solutions to supplement 5G coverage. Easy Macro 3.0 is the industry's first application that carries FDD 4T4R and TDD 8T8R in one box, and it also supports simplified deployment of UL/DL decoupling. Book RRU 3.0 realizes both TDD and FDD 4T4R. For indoor coverage, the LampSite EE suite provides B2B capabilities, such as D-MIMO, Super Uplink, and high-precision positioning, to accommodate differentiated services in varying scenarios.

"1+N" to Autonomous Driving Network

Efficient O&M is a huge challenge in building "1+N" target networks. One challenge can be effectively targeting capabilities for B2B and maintaining 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G simultaneously. Another challenge is balancing user experience and energy consumption or on-demand slicing and spectral efficiency. Fully optimizing capabilities such as latency, bandwidth, uplink, and downlink is also difficult. AI-assisted autonomous driving of networks will be the optimal way to address the challenges O&M poses in the 5G era.

Through continuous innovation, Huawei has developed a new series of solutions powered by its MBB Automation Engine (MAE) autonomous driving network. The 5GtoB suite enables intelligent and precise planning, simplified provisioning on demand, and proactive network O&M. It realizes a perfect alignment with industry Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements, adaptive deployment in complex scenarios, and real-time SLA monitoring and fault prediction, facilitating digital layout of the 5G B2B industry. The 5G WTTx suite provides reliable service provisioning check, precise network capacity warning and capacity expansion guidance as well as network evaluation and line management, greatly improving the O&M efficiency of 5G WTTx services. PowerStar, with the help of AI, implements intelligent carrier management based on traffic, reverse mobility load balancing (MLB) energy saving based on energy efficiency, and hierarchical energy saving based on key performance indicators (KPIs). It greatly reduces network energy consumption through coordinated energy saving between multiple frequency bands and radio access technologies. Test results on commercial live networks reveal that PowerStar brings "1+N" energy efficiency and optimal user experience, reducing energy consumption by 15% and increasing network traffic by 10%.

5G promises a bright future. The mobile industry needs to build more powerful networks and create opportunities in the coming golden decade of 5G. Huawei is ready with "1+N" simplified 5G networks and a complete range of solutions.
