Telus, Huawei deploy HetNet at 5G Living Lab

Thursday 24 November 2016 | 10:10 CET | News
Telus and Huawei achieved another significant milestone in their journey towards 5G with the successful deployment of a Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) in the heart of the 5G Living Lab in Vancouver. HetNet is one of the key building blocks for 5G and combines multiple types of cells to enhance both coverage and capacity in crowded areas and inside buildings where outdoor signals do not reach. The network enables transitions between cell types to ensure uninterrupted streaming of ultra-high-bandwidth applications as devices move throughout the network.
