Entel Bolivia picks Huawei's TubeStar base station for urban rollout

Thursday 21 June 2018 | 10:12 CET | News

Specially designed to reduce site TCO in urban areas, Huawei said Entel picked the TubeStar service in view of the high price of site acquisition in the country. TubeStar stations require far less site area (2 square meters) than traditional macro sites while allowing RF, baseband, transmission, and battery units to accommodate in a tiny vertical space.
