Telecom network vendor Huawei will launch the industry’s first and fastest 2.5 GHz 4×4 MIMO CPE (multiple-input multiple-output customer premises equipment) solution in the first quarter of 2016 in the U.S.
Huawei’s 4×4 MIMO CPE solution is the industry’s first 2.5 GHz CPE capable of achieving throughput up to 220Mbps. When deployed in conjunction with 2 carrier aggregation, the CPE boasts the fastest peak cell rates in the market of over 400Mbps.
Tim Mao, senior vice president of Wireline Sales, Huawei, said: “Fixed wireless provides a cost-effective alternative to broadband operators with its quick deployment and easy plug-and-play installation paradigm.”
Huawei is expected to launch a 3.5 GHz version of the 4×4 MIMO CPE and additional advanced LTE technologies, including downlink 8×8 MIMO, 4-carrier aggregation and 256QAM in the near future. These new technologies significantly increase spectrum efficiency and provide peak connecting rates of up to 1 Gbps.
