Globe Telecom has joined hands with Huawei to provide in-building wireless service solution in its headquarters in Bonifacio Global City.
Huawei’s in-building wireless service solution is expected to address the need for dedicated seamless indoor coverage and location-based services and applications, Globe Telecom said on Tuesday.
Globe Telecom will deploy hybrid fiber and RF coaxial distributed antenna system (DAS) to provide high-capacity multi-technology mobile broadband services in The Globe Tower. The design provides seamless coverage in all areas of 28-floors of The Globe Tower including lifts, and parking areas.
“To guarantee an optimal network performance and seamless customer experience, Globe has adopted an industry-leading in-building solution using Huawei’s industry-leading software defined radio (SDR) wireless access technology,” said Gerhard Tan, head of Globe’s Radio Network Engineering.
The use of SDR multi-frequency and multi-technology allows the delivery of wireless service on 2G, 3G, and LTE in Globe assigned frequencies in the 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz bands. IBS solution will accommodate future wireless access technologies such as LTE Advanced.
The IBS solution enables Globe employees and visitors to benefit from up to 70 Mbps data download speed.
The IBS solution implemented in The Globe Tower can also be deployed to provide indoor mobile broadband services in similar enterprise buildings and/or high-rise residential buildings. ( Huawei powers Globe Telecom’s fiber optics project in Coron )
