Huawei announced that it successfully deployed and verified the capabilities of its E-Band microwave equipment during a comprehensive LTE test network in Chengdu, China.
The results of the test demonstrate the high service-bearing capability and market-readiness of Huawei’s E-Band microwave equipment.
E-Band is a newer extremely high-frequency type of microwave band (80GHz) that supports multiple Gbit/s transmission bandwidths, meaning it is able to meet the considerable service backhaul requirements on LTE networks. Huawei’s E-band microwave equipment enhances e-band microwave utilization as it offers a large capacity, is easy to install, and requires virtually no space in equipment rooms.
A series of performance and pressure tests on a network with high LTE data usage has proven the high performance and advanced features of Huawei’s E-band microwave equipment. Three months of successful operations during the extreme Chengdu summer heat and rain demonstrated the reliability and stability of the E-Band microwave prototype equipment. Tier 1 operators, including Telenor, Vodafone, and Italian Telecom, praised the advanced technology and high reliability of Huawei’s E-Band microwave equipment.
