Turkey’s leading communication and entertainment technologies company Turk Telekom and Huawei, were awarded with “Multi-band Antenna Innovations for Nationwide 4.5G Network in Turkey” Project in Global Telecom Business Summit which has been hosted regularly since 2007. New multi-band antenna solution will be used both for Turk Telekom’s 4.5G frequencies integrally and for new generation technologies. To address challenges such as where to find space on already crowded towers and how to deal with antenna size limitations, Huawei and Turk Telekom released the innovative 4.5G multi-port antenna solution. Newly generated antenna solution offers many solutions to operators such as support for new technology implementations like MIMO, easy deployment, environmental compliance. This solution facilitates the deployment of 4.5G networks and provides high network performance even when tower space is limited and antennas are of small size. Furthermore, this solution supports band-specific electrical downtilt adjustment, which enables quick deployment of commercial 4.5G networks.
Coşkun Şahin, CTO of Türk Telekom said:"As being the most reliable partner of Turkey’s digital revolution, we took another important step with this project that was granted the most innovative award of the world. We are proud of the attention of the world’s biggest generators to the new antenna solution and their desire to generate it. I would like to thank Huawei for this partnership. We will continue to initiate these kind of innovative solutions with our excellence in technology know-how and investment force.”
