#1 Upgraded MetaAAU with ELAA

By combining advanced software and hardware, such as extremely large antenna array (ELAA) and the AHR algorithm, the new ELAA-upgraded MetaAAU can achieve excellent coverage with optimal energy efficiency, and ultra-low power consumption under a light load. Compared with conventional AAUs, the upgraded MetaAAU can provide the same coverage with 50 percent less power consumption, while during idle hours, its power consumption can be slashed to less than 10 W.

#2 MetaAAU with the industry’s largest bandwidth of 800 MHz

Huawei will launch the 800 MHz MetaAAU featuring the industry’s largest bandwidth for discrete spectrum scenarios. The ultra-wideband MetaAAU can cover full C-band, enabling simplified deployment of 3400 MHz to 3800 MHz, as well as 3800 MHz to 4200 MHz in the future.

Huawei will launch Meta BladeAAU by innovatively integrating Meta and Blade technologies. The Meta BladeAAU allows all sub-6 GHz bands to be deployed on a single pole. Its active part is upgraded to MetaAAU, achieving optimal energy efficiency and performance for TDD bands, while its passive part is upgraded to 2L8H to support on-demand optimal configuration of sub-3 GHz.

#3 Lightest macro base station M-MIMO

Huawei’s new 32T32R M-MIMO module for macro base stations weighs only 12 kg. It can be installed with only one person and carried with one hand. This helps increase operators’ network construction efficiency.

#4 Ultra-wideband 4T4R RRU

Huawei’s ultra-wideband FDD RRU series maintains the industry’s lowest power consumption. Huawei’s ultra-wideband 4T4R remote radio unit (RRU) supports simplified deployment of all FDD bands and all radio access technologies (RATs) while slashing energy consumption by 20 percent. The RRU features built-in PIM interference cancellation technology and SingleCell to improve edge user-perceived rate by 20 percent.

#5 Ultra-wideband 8T8R RRU

Ultra-wideband 8T8R RRU can simultaneously boost network capacity and coverage, improving user experience by 40 percent. In medium- and heavy-load scenarios, the Power-Boosting technology enables 100 percent dynamic power sharing between carriers and between RATs, allowing the same performance at 30 percent lower power consumption. Power-Adapting supports on-demand power scheduling to achieve equivalent basic power consumption for 8T8R and 4T4R RRUs.


Huawei’s FDD M-MIMO has been commercialized around the world, as it is able to increase capacity by five times. The FDD BladeAAU is a combination of FDD M-MIMO and advanced transparent antenna technology. It achieves optimal sub-3 GHz coverage and ultimate capacity while supporting single-pole deployment.

#7 LampSite 5.0

Huawei’s LampSite 5.0 supports TDD+FDD multi-band, multi-RAT combination. Its high integration design reduces weight and volume by 25 percent, as well as site power consumption by 40 percent. With the help of industry’s unique distributed M-MIMO, it translates interference to gains and brings 4-fold network capacity, achieving ubiquitous gigabit experience. It has become the top choice for scenarios such as airports, railway stations, and shopping malls.


Signal direct injection feeding (SDIF) is Huawei’s unique advanced antenna technology. It saves a large number of feeders and cables, and improves amplitude and phase precision while significantly reducing impedance loss, boosting overall antenna RF efficiency. Huawei’s SDIF technology is designed for all antenna scenarios and series to meet band- and region-specific configuration requirements, bringing about a 20 percent increase in the energy efficiency of all bands.

#9 MAGICSwave

The new 2T products that support conventional bands (with 800 MHz bandwidth) allow more carriers to be aggregated. The new 2T products supporting E-band provide 25 Gbps capacity. And thanks to higher transmission power and intelligent beam tracking antennas, their transmission distance is 50 percent longer than the industry’s best.

#10 IntelligentRAN

Huawei IntelligentRAN brings intelligence to the radio access network (RAN) and provides three major functions: iPowerstar, iHashband, and iFaultcare. The live network test results have demonstrated that the iPowerstar doubles the energy saving effect compared with conventional solutions, while the iHashband improves user experience by 30 percent, and the iFaultcare boosts troubleshooting efficiency by 40 percent. IntelligentRAN will bring various intelligent applications to more scenarios and enable in-depth collaboration between all bands and all scenarios.
