Research of User Experience Centric Network in MBB Era
Research of User Experience Centric Network in MBB Era

User experience in MBB era is mainly the experience of man-to-machine interaction. The most critical indicator of user experience is the service waiting time. Network construction goal in MBB era is to build a network with excellent user experience, and the measurable standard is the service waiting time. Study shows that service waiting time with excellent user experience is in about 3 seconds.

3 Seconds Network
3 Seconds Network

Consumption growth in data traffic raises new challenges on the network MBB, as a result Huawei proposes a new solution to meet these challenges: 3 Seconds Network. This solution can measure the most important indicator of user experience and network performance of MBB era. It is possible to map the user experience requirements to the network construction target.


This article analyses the challenges faced by operators in the MBB era. To solve these problems, Active Antenna Unit (AAU) solution and its benefits are introduced. After that, it proposes the operators when and where to deploy AAU.
