Telenor has completed the largest commercial deployment of Huawei’s Blade Site wireless base-station solution in India, says a release from the company. The company claimed that it has rolled out 10000+ new sites across Telenor’s six circles between November 2015 to April 2016, which is said to be the fastest ever deployment of the blade site solution in the country.
“Telenor is committed to extending benefits of the affordable mobile broadband network to enrich lives of our customers. By deploying Huawei Blade Site solution we have not only accelerated the speed of installation of a new network but also increased coverage and improved network quality experience within the available resources. The swapped sites have shown higher spectral and power efficiencies that have helped us reduce our operational expense,” said Tanveer Mohammad, chief operating officer, Telenor (India) Communications.
The Huawei Blade Site solution enhances network capacity, providing users with a better mobile broadband experience. It supports flexible combinations of Baseband Unit (BBU), Radio Frequency (RF) and power modules, provides Global System for Mobile (GSM), Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) and LTE three-mode concurrent operations, delivering operators an effective solution to deploy at complex sites.
This will improve Telenor’s existing network. Telenor currently has 52.4 million subscribers. The new network can support latest mobile technology including 4G/LTE services to deliver high-speed Internet.
“Huawei and Telenor Group will build on our strategic partnership to achieve greater business success through the scaled commercial deployment of Blade Site solution,” said Sun Fuyou, President, Huawei Southeast Asia region.
“Blade Site solutions help operators to access site resources easily, improve the user experience and achieve commercial success. Huawei will always focus on customer strategy and pain points to help customers achieve greater success.”
Huawei’s Blade Site solution has been successfully deployed in 90 commercial networks in 40 countries.
