Telus, Huawei deploy small-cell platform that supports 1Gbps

Tuesday 14 November 2017 | 16:05 CET | News

Huawei and Telus deployed an innovative small-cell platform to deliver speeds exceeding 1 Gbps in both indoor and outdoor networks in the downtown-Vancouver “TechCity 5G Living Lab”. This new deployment ensures customers will be able to move seamlessly between indoor and outdoor locations without noticing a change in network quality, especially when using wireless applications that demand higher speed and data requirements.

In the outdoor live-testing environment, Telus deployed a suite of technologies including 5-channel carrier aggregation (5CC), 4x4 multiple-input, multiple-output radio access (4T4R MIMO) and 256 QAM modulation to provide those peak speeds in excess of 1 Gbps. The operator said that these advanced network technologies provide its customers with high speeds, coverage, and quality of service to support data-heavy applications such as video streaming, big data applications and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Recently, in combination with the 5CC, 4T4R and 256 QAM technologies, Huawei’s LampSite system achieved a throughput of over 1 Gbps, believed to be among the fastest small-cell speeds to date by any operator globally. With 80 percent of mobile data traffic now indoors, this achievement represents another valuable step in providing fast and reliable service to regularly crowded areas.

Earlier in 2017, Telus and Huawei announced the successful live deployment of a 3GPP-oriented network. Since, Telus also announced that it successfully tested other technologies vital to 5G, such as Licensed-Assisted Access (LAA).
