Huawei completes multi-mode, LTE to GSM interoperability test

Telecom Lead Asia: Huawei has completed a multi-mode, LTE
to GSM ANR (Automatic Neighbor Relations) interoperability test.


Huawei said the LTE-to-GSM ANR IOT reduces manual
configuration for neighbor relations by 90 percent, improve handover success
rate, and reduces network management and optimization costs for operators.


Multi-mode ANR supports the automatic management and
optimization of neighbor relations for networks featuring multiple modes and


In 2011, Huawei completed an earlier version of the
LTE-to-UMTS multi-mode ANR IOT with chip major Qualcomm. This more recent
iteration enables LTE systems to automatically manage neighbor relations for
GSM NCLs (Neighbor Cell List) and NRTs (Neighbor Relation Table), enhancing
user mobility experience when moving from an LTE network to a GSM network.


Huawei launched the SingleSON solution to help carriers
efficiently manage multi-mode and multi-layer networks to realize the
self-planning, self-configuration and self maintenance of the network and
reduce the cost of operations and maintenance.


Operators are deploying the SingleSON solution in their
network to realize automatic operations and maintenance. In 2011, Huawei
launched the SingleSON ANR feature for commercial use on an LTE network in
Cologne, Germany, which saw the ANR feature’s first launch on a commercial
network anywhere in the world.


Huawei conducts first commercial LTE Category 4 field trial in


Huawei has conducted the world’s first successful execution
of an LTE Category 4 field trial on a commercial LTE network in Europe.
The field trial demonstrated excellent performance with download data rates of
up to 150Mbps.


The trial is an LTE industry milestone as it helps meet
the requirements of fast data traffic growth in an era of mobile broadband and
brings an unparalleled service experience to end users.
