Huawei Launches 5G Simplified Solution

Feb 26, 2019

[Barcelona, Spain, February 26, 2019] Huawei released the 5G Simplified Solution at Mobile World Congress 2019. Huawei is dedicated to taking complexity and creating simplicity. 5G Simplified Solution can help operators build 5G network with superior performance and user experience, simplified and fast deployment and low operating cost.

Chaobin Yang, president of Huawei 5G Product Line, announce the Launch of 5G Simplified Solution

The speed and scale of 5G development is beyond expectations

5G has a faster deployment pace than other RATs in terms of commercial use. It is the first time during the past nearly 40 years that, 5G networks and terminals for large-scale commercial use are simultaneously mature. It takes 10 years for 3G worldwide users to reach 500 million users, 5 years for 4G, and will be 3 years for 5G.

5G will develop in larger-scale, and wider-ranging. It is estimated that, in 2019, over 50 countries will allocate 5G spectrum resources, over 60 operators will deploy 5G on a large scale, and over 40 types of commercial 5G terminals will be available. 5G will develop several times or even dozens of times faster than existing RATs, with a larger deployment scale and more users to experience 5G. The first wave of 5G commercialization will cover a third of the global population, greatly exceeding the scale of 3G or 4G.

Huawei has obtained more than 30 commercial contracts and delivered over 40,000 sites. It is an urgent need of operators to reduce the cost per bit of the network while providing the eMBB ultimate experience to the consumer.

It has become an industry consensus that large-scale deployment of Massive MIMO. Currently 95% of commercial shipments are Massive-MIMO(64T64R and 32T32R).

Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei's 5G Product Line, claimed that "We are setting a new record in the history of mobile communications. 5G will develop in a fast-paced, large-scale, and wide-ranging way. 2019 is expected to be the year of 5G large-scale commercialization, and Huawei 5G Simplified Solution will help operators build 5G network with superior performance and user experience, simplified and fast deployment."

The 5G Simplified Solution enables simplified site

The 5G Simplified solution is oriented to diversified deployment scenarios such as traditional macro, antenna limited, street hotspots, and indoor. It contains serialized 5G Massive MIMO, Book RRU, LampSite, etc. The most innovative of these is the blade AAU.

5G Blade AAU supports all RATs and frequency bands, and integrates active and passive antennas. Blade AAU greatly simplified the antenna, efficient use of site resources and help operators reduce high site operating costs. It meets the installation requirements of the existing sites with its height of 2 meters. Blade AAU makes the 5G boutique network deployment extremely convenient. Due to the integration of low-frequency antenna operators can easily complete 2G/3G/4G modernization and build a Multi-RATs network with the best experience to realize MBB low cost.

In conjunction with the blade AAU, Huawei also launches an outdoor blade BBU, which is combined with blade power to form a 5G super blade site. The super blade site has the characteristics of full outdoor and modularization. It can make full use of the existing site resources, reduce the dependence of the 5G deployment on the site resources, realize the “one pole one site”, free the equipment room and air-conditioner, and greatly reduce the site operating cost.

The 5G Simplified Solution enables Simplified architecture:

At the beginning of 5G deployment, when operators choose the 5G network architecture, they generally face the choice of NSA (non-standalone) or SA (standalone). In addition to the consideration of the network architecture itself, the operators also concerns whether the NSA and the SA terminal can simultaneously access a 5G network.

From a network perspective, the radio access network to the core network, 3GPP defines a complete standard interface. The 5G base station support both NSA and SA architectures. The same core network platform can also support 4G EPC and 5G Core at the same time. From the perspective of the terminal, the NSA and SA terminals can access the same 5G network at the same time, and complex signaling and data processing are left to the network for processing.

Therefore, NSA or SA is no longer a dilemma for operators. The same 5G network, the two architectures coexist harmoniously, and the NSA base station can be smoothly evolved to the SA base station through software upgrade.

2019 is expected to be the year of 5G large-scale commercialization. Huawei's 5G Simplified Solution can meet the deployment requirements of various scenarios and build a simplified network to provide an ultimate experience.

MWC 2019 runs from February 25 to 28 in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei is showcasing its products and solutions at booth 1H50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1, booth 3I30 in Hall 3, the Innovation City zone in Hall 4, and booth 7C21 and 7C31 in Hall 7.
