Huawei Outlines Vision for LTE in Asia Pacifc
As the pioneer of innovative LTE solutions and a leader in global LTE commercialization, Huawei today unveiled its "No-Edge" vision for the future of LTE at LTE Asia 2012.
The "No-Edge" network concept aims to open up high-growth market opportunities for operators and support their efforts to ensure a seamless user experience by enabling then to build efficient, sustainable and profitable mobile broadband networks that offer simple, fast, and high-quality connectivity to their customers.
"Multi-mode data cards, mobile WiFi, and smartphones that support LTE FDD and TDD dual mode became available in 2012 and they reduce the burden operators face from the explosion of mobile broadband. Huawei is committed to advancing the LTE industry and we are excited about the benefits that our 'No-Edge' vision will bring to our customers and theirs," said Lim Chee Siong, Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei South Pacific.
The principle behind Huawei's "No-Edge" network concept is the utilization of various LTE, LTE-Advanced and innovative future-orientated technologies - such as CoMP, Adaptive Inter Cell Interference Coordination, Advanced Receiver, Interference Rejection Combining and Turbo Equalizer - in order to realize ultra broadband, zero-waiting and ubiquitous connectivity.
Last year, Huawei was awarded a five-year contract valued at S$280 million, to provide the turnkey LTE solution for M1. This includes the installation of macro base stations, distributed base stations and Evolved Packet Core (EPC), for M1’s island-wide next generation network.
M1 recently launched its nationwide 4G LTE network on 15th September along with new mobile plans. We also went around Singapore to test out its 4G LTE network.
