gear maker Huawei has launched the world’s first LTE-A (LTE-Advanced)
inter-band carrier aggregation (CA) solution at the Mobile World Congress 2012
The company said that the solution will improve the
utilization of discontinued spectrum resources and increase user peak rate and
At the Mobile World Congress 2012, demonstrations
of Huawei’s LTE-A inter-band CA solution showed inter-band carrier aggregation
at 800MHz and 2.6GHz with peak throughput of over 225Mb/s.
The company added that the solution is expected to
revolutionize user experience by allowing networks to meet bandwidth
requirements of data-heavy applications, marking an industry milestone and
demonstrating Huawei’s leadership in field of LTE-A innovation.
Huawei has long partnered with leading global
operators in the fields of LTE/LTE-A. Huawei’s leading end-to-end advantages
help operators build efficient, sustainable, and profitable mobile broadband
networks, as well as bring people a wonderful service experience,” said Ying
Weimin, president of Huawei GSM&UMTS
According to recent reports from the 3rd Generation
Partnership Project (3GPP), Huawei has contributed more than 260 approved
LTE/LTE-A core specifications since 2010, comprising an industry-leading 20% of
all approved contributions. Huawei’s dedication to sharing its technological
innovations continues to play a fundamental role in the development of the global
According to the company, inter-band CA is the most
difficult to realize of the three forms of LTE-A CA. Given existing spectrum
allocation policies, inter-band CA not only dramatically increases spectrum
resource utilization, but also helps operators flexibly combine bandwidth and
solve spectrum discontinuity to increase user peak rates and experience.
With this solution, operators enjoy greater returns and
spectrum assets will appreciate in value.
Recently, Huawei announced that its SingleMetro series router NE40E and ME60 have completed IPv6
transition tests, including Dual Stack (DS) and DS-Lite tests.
