Huawei announced its 5000 series base station at the Mobile World Congress 2017 event in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei says that "Innovative technologies empower mobile operators to build a 5G-oriented network." The future-proof base station provides up to 10 times the support capacity of existing base stations as well as 30 percent better performance and 20 percent OPEX savings. With its new-generation 5000 base station, Huawei leads the industry in technology innovation, user experience, and commercial success.
The radio unit of the 5000 series is build up on leading Power Amplifier (PA) technology and comes with the modular design. It achieves the highest level of integration in the industry with best-in-class performance and high output power. It supports flexible multi-channels such as 4T4R, 8T8R and 64T64R (Massive MIMO) capabilities, thus significantly improving spectrum efficiency, network capacity, and throughput. Such innovations will benefit operators building efficient, agile, and more economical systems. Such networks have ten times the capacity to meet future mobile broadband (MBB) traffic growth.
An Jian, president of Huawei Wireless Network Marketing and Solution Sales, said, "Huawei is dedicated to solving operator challenges and meet their demands. Broadband traffic will continue to surge with the emergence of new and diversified applications. The innovative 5000 series base station provides powerful performance and future-proof design to help operators building leading ultra-mobile broadband networks. This accelerates the exploration of business opportunities, meets demands of evolution from 4.5G to 5G, and achieves commercial success."
The 5000 series base station baseband modules use new-generation baseband signaling processing chipsets and new architecture design to support Multi-RAT and Massive MIMO technologies. Huawei is one of the global company pushing hard at the next-generation 5G network.
In China, the company is leading the way by successfully completing all the initial tests related to the 5G network. Recently, Huawei said that they have done with the '5G Field Performance Testing' and is the first brand to achieve this feat. Also, Huawei is pushing other operators to start developing the 5G infrastructure.
