Mobile Internet is now penetrating into every aspect of our daily lives. It has now grown into a main interface between us and the world, and promote the mobile industry to flourish. The vision of "everyone on mobile, everything with wireless, and every industry plus wireless" is becoming a reality.
In order to tackle future business and network challenges and build commercial competitiveness, 5G era target networks must incorporate LTE evolution and 5G new radio (NR). More specifically, theses future-proof networks must support long-term evolution, while featuring the evolution of all spectrum, the convergence of all radio access technologies (RATs), and the development of all services. Huawei launches the SingleRAN Pro solution to help operators deploy 5G target networks, explore new business possibilities, and create a "fully connected", intelligent world.
All-in-One: 5G Ready to Maximize Network Potential
The unified hardware platform supports 5G and is downward compatible with 2G, 3G, and 4G. With such compatibility, operators can rest assured that their hardware investment will not be wasted. Sites will not only support multiple RATs but also multiple bands and multiple antennas. In addition, "1+1" antennas and multi-band 4T4R radio frequency (RF) modules maximize resource efficiency while lowering maintenance costs.
Agile Architecture: Same Software Architecture for Deployment in Diverse Scenarios
SingleRAN Pro boasts agile architecture, allowing operators to deploy a flexible network for on-demand resource allocation. This is reflected in three parts.
a. Scenario-based deployment: Operators can flexibly choose between distributed RAN (D-RAN) or centralized RAN (C-RAN) deployment based on the abundance of fiber optic cables.
b. Flexible spectrum resource allocation: CloudAIR is featured to enable flexible, dynamic, demand-based spectrum allocation. CloudAIR also expedites the rollout of new technologies and increases spectral efficiency.
c. Evolution: During 5G deployment, software upgrade is supported by all evolution paths from the non-standalone (NSA) network structure to the standalone (SA) one.
Automation: Intelligent Wireless Networks to Help Cut Operators' OPEX
Operators' networks becomes intelligent owing to the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI). This approach offers the following three benefits.
a. O&M will become increasingly easy and efficient with hardware and software plug and play (PnP) and automatic fault recovery.
b. Network potential will be further unleashed, boosting network performance.
c. Automation enables agile service provisioning, saving operators previous troubles.
