Three operators use LampSite to deploy multi-operator indoor digital network

Huawei LampSite small cell for TELUSHuawei announced that three telecom operators including EE and O2 have deployed the first multi-operator indoor digital network using the LampSite Sharing solution in the UK.

The indoor small cell system shared by three mobile operators delivered better mobile broadband experience to their customers compared to a legacy distributed antenna system (DAS) and proved a successful way to enhance 4G indoor mobile coverage in the UK.

LampSite Sharing is a high capacity, multi band, multi operator solution for facilitating emerging business models from neutral hosts and operators. The solution has low TCO compared to traditional DAS and is ready to evolve to future 5G networks. Huawei said LampSite Sharing helps operators and neutral hosts transit to an indoor digital small cell era.

Engineers took three days to deploy the LampSite Sharing system in the exhibition area at ExCel and provided a sharing solution for the three operators across multiple bands and carriers.

Huawei’s Virtual 4T4R feature provided max download speeds up to 270 Mbps with 20 MHz carrier. Huawei’s OSS platform (U2000) provides real-time management and visibility of all components of the solution. Traditional DAS cannot provide this functionality.

“We look forward to helping operators and neutral hosts to more efficiently solve the problem of indoor coverage quickly with our indoor multi-operator sharing solution and bringing a high quality indoor MBB experience to end users,” said Peng Honghua, president of Huawei’s Small Cell Product Line.
