Huawei presents Dual 200 C-band Massive MIMO AAU

Huawei Zhou YuefengHuawei announced its 200W and 200MHz Dual-200 C-band Massive MIMO AAU at the 2017 Global Mobile Broadband Forum in London.

The device can reduce the cost of C-band deployment and maximize site and spectrum resources to improve wireless network capacity and user experience.

The Dual 200 C-band Massive MIMO AAU is designed to meet the challenge of rapid development of mobile Internet for MBB network capacity, and to build the ability to evolve towards 5G.

Huawei said the launch of the “Dual 200” is expected to accelerate the pace of C-band deployment worldwide.

“Dual-200 Massive MIMO AAU showcases Huawei’s leadership in 5G-oriented multi-antenna technology. It will further accelerate C-band deployment around the globe, helping operators continue to build leading edge networks,” said Zhou Yuefeng, chief marketing officer of Huawei Wireless.

The latest Huawei Massive MIMO product uses Huawei’s RF chip and antenna array technology to improve coverage.

The power amplifier technology can achieve 200W power, promising 60 percent higher power than previous generation devices.

C-band will be the mainstream band of 5G NR, with abundant spectrum resources. Operators will have more than 100MHz bandwidth. This product has a capability of 200MHz bandwidth, which doubles the capability of the last generation.

It will support operators’ future C-band spectrum combinations, with a single module to complete the C-band deployment. This saves site space and reduces network construction costs. This product enables the peak rate of a site to reach up to xGbps and up to 10+Gbps for 5G NR, which meets the future needs of large-capacity services.

Huawei Massive MIMO products have been deployed in more than 40 countries, including Japan, China, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia.

Softbank Japan tested TDD Massive MIMO and multi-carrier aggregation using 40MHz in 3.5GHz, to realize the downlink throughput of 1.4Gbps.Huawei Jiang XiangzhongHuawei released a new generation of 5G-oriented base station designed for network deployment in multi-band, multi-RAT, and multi-service scenarios in the future.

“This new type of base station will become the golden base station in the 5G era. It can help operators quickly and economically deploy a highly competitive network in the 4.5G/5G era,” said Jiang Xiangzhong, president of Huawei’s SingleRAN Domain.
