Telenor to deploy Huawei’s end-to-end IP microwave solution for LTE backhaul

Telecom Lead India: Huawei and Telenor have entered into a three-year strategic cooperation framework contract to deploy Huawei’s second generation E-Band and full outdoor (FO) microwave backhaul technologies.

Telenor Group is one of the leading mobile operators in the world. With close to 150 million mobile subscribers, Telenor has a leading position in the Nordic region and a strong footprint in Central and Eastern Europe and Asia.

Having completed a base station IP-based revamp, Telenor  plans to deploy LTE networks on a large scale, using Huawei’s end-to-end IP microwave solution for LTE backhaul. This solution enables high bandwidth, smooth evolution, quick deployment, and easy management for LTE backhaul networks.

Huawei’s microwave solution is built on a universal IP platform including RTN 900 series, a flexible microwave platform, RTN 310, a zero-footprint all outdoor microwave solution, and RTN 380, a second generation carrier-grade E-Band all outdoor microwave solution.

“Huawei has forged a long-term strategic partnership with Telenor in the microwave field. We will continue to focus on customer needs and innovate in microwave solutions, helping our customers gain commercial success in the mobile broadband field,” said Jack Wang, president of Huawei Transport Network Product Line.

Huawei has deployed LTE backhaul networks for many global operators including: Vodafone D2 (Germany), O2 (Czech Republic), T-Mobile (Austria), and STC (Saudi Arabia).

According to a recent report from Dell’Oro, Huawei ranks no. 2 in the global microwave market, as of Q3 2012.
