TELUS deploys Huawei LampSite small cell solution to deliver 1 Gbps speed

Huawei LampSite small cell for TELUSTELUS, a telecom operator in Canada, has deployed Huawei LampSite small cell solution to deliver 1 Gbps speed in both indoor and outdoor networks in Vancouver.

Earlier, Telenor, which has telecom operations in Asia and Europe, has installed Huawei LampSite small cell solution to enhance customer experience.

The deployment of the small cell solution from Huawei ensures TELUS customers to move between indoor and outdoor locations without noticing a change in network quality, especially when using wireless applications that demand higher speed and data requirements.

“TELUS is committed to offering our customers ultra-fast, reliable and innovative mobile services through our agile and intelligent network of the future. Our ‘5G Living Lab’ in Vancouver is paving the way for Canada’s future in the digital economy,” said Ibrahim Gedeon, chief technology officer of TELUS.

TELUS has deployed technologies including 5-channel carrier aggregation (5CC), 4×4 multiple-input, multiple-output radio access (4T4R MIMO) and 256 QAM modulation to provide speeds in excess of 1 Gbps in the outdoor live-testing environment.

These advanced network technologies provide TELUS customers best-in-class speed, coverage, and quality of service to support data-heavy applications such as video streaming, big data applications and next-generation Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

TELUS is optimizing indoor small cell wireless services in areas where significant pedestrian traffic can create network congestion, including hotels, office buildings, arenas and public outdoor sites.

Recently, in combination with the 5CC, 4T4R and 256 QAM technologies, Huawei’s LampSite system achieved a throughput of over 1 Gbps. With 80 per cent of cellular data traffic now indoors, this achievement represents another valuable step in providing fast and reliable service to regularly crowded areas.

“TELUS continues to deploy Huawei’s innovative small-cell solutions to support their heterogeneous network and achieve data rates exceeding 1 Gbps with the Huawei LampSite solution,” said Ritchie Peng, president of Huawei Small Cell Product Line.
