Huawei Technologies announced the launch of what is touted as the world’s first LTE eNodeB and said it is geared up for a mass commercial deployment.
On adoption of eNodeB, operators will be able to cut back on the expenses in operation and smoothly evolve to next-generation networks without much additional investment, said Huawei.
“It is a great milestone in the development of LTE technology. Based on our fourth-generation base station platform, this LTE eNodeB will enable operators worldwide to offer to high-quality LTE services immediately and accelerate the maturity of LTE industry,” said Mr. Wan Biao, President of Wireless, Huawei.
Bundled with the capacity to support a downlink rate of up to 150 Mpbs in commercial LTE networks, eNodeB, when combined with 64QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) and MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology and 2T2R (two transmitters and two receivers) capabilities, the offering can boost the use of the ultra-wide bandwidth of LTE networks, said the company.
According to Huawei, higher-speed connection can provide end-users with unmatched mobile data services like high-definition VOD (Video-on-Demand) and high-simulation video conferencing as well. And its SON (Self Organizing Networks) solution can enable automatic configuration and optimization of new cells in an LTE network.
