Huawei’s new LTE modem promises 1 Gb/s and triple FWA capacity

Huawei_boothOffering 1 Gb/s speed and triple FWA capacity, Huawei has launched the world’s first 8×8 MIMO LTE outdoor CPE B3368.

The CPE enables operators to quickly deploy 4G FWA services and provide fiber-like services over LTE networks while maximizing both spectral efficiency and the value of LTE networks.

Thanks to the higher performance features offered by B3368, operators can extend broadband services to more homes and enterprises without deploying new base stations, maximizing the network value.

The product will find applications in smart home, 4K, and AR/VR services that demand higher broadband rates ranging from 10–20Mb/s to 25–100Mb/s.

B3368 supports all FDD and TDD bands, 4CC CA with a maximum bandwidth of 80 MHz, and 256QAM. By combining the powerful functions, this product supports a peak rate of up to 1 Gb/s.

Tripled spectral efficiency and provisioning capabilities: B3368 supports up to 8×8 MIMO and 4-SRS antenna selection.

Together with Huawei’s leading Massive MIMO base stations, B3368 delivers tripled capacity over MBB base stations. Service provisioning capability is also tripled, reducing per-line costs by 60 percent.

Zhang Yiqu, director of Huawei’s WTTx Domain, said, “4G/5G FWA services are also ushering in an era of Wireless Fiber. Wireless Fibers will contribute to further widespread usage and development of fixed broadband.”

By September, 2019, more than 230 4G FWA networks have been deployed globally.

“Huawei’s LTE CPE B3368 will enable operators to increase home broadband speeds in developed countries while increasing the availability of affordable home broadband in developing countries, bridging digital divides among families, and achieving the goal of ‘Broadband for All, Wireless First,’” Yiqu added.
