Huawei Helps Telcos Build Better Networks for Less with the Industry's First Multi-layer Networking Solution

Feb 25, 2017

[Barcelona, Spain, February 25, 2017] Right in time for this year's Mobile World Congress, Huawei launched a new multi-layer networking solution that will revolutionize network deployment in the mobile broadband era. This breakthrough solution enables wider coverage and frees up finite site resources, while delivering significant gains in network capacity, coverage, and performance. With multi-layer network technology, operators can deploy their networks for less and take user experience to a whole new level.

In the digital era, mobile subscribers continue to demand more out of networks, placing telecom operators under increasing pressure to build networks that deliver high speeds, seamless connections, and a more diverse range of services. "Working with telcos of all shapes and sizes around the world, we've seen everything—and we've been fortunate enough to really dig into the heart of the challenges our customers face," said Dr. Margaret Hu, President of Huawei's Wireless Network Marketing Department. "So we've designed our multi-layer network solution around these challenges, unlocking the potential of their sites while significantly lowering the cost of network deployment. Results so far have been excellent. We look forward to partnering with more operators to commercialize this solution and make better, more reliable MBB a universal reality."

Challenges with site acquisition and deployment, compounded by weak and fragmented urban coverage due to the insufficient macro site capacity, remain a barrier to meeting user demand for strong mobile broadband performance. Multi-layer networks provide a practical solution to this problem, enabling a more targeted approach to network planning and deployment.

Huawei's multi-layer network solution combines the connective power of macro, pole-mounted, outdoor micro, and indoor sites to help absorb network traffic and push performance beyond the constraints of macro sites alone. Furthermore, by leveraging pole resources for site deployment, the multi-layer network solution resolves issues that arise from insufficient numbers of traditional macro sites. Existing poles substantially accelerate site deployment, and new pole resources can be centrally planned, making resource allocation more flexible and utilization more optimal.

MWC 2017 will take place in Barcelona, Spain from February 27 to March 2.
