Huawei Releases GigaRadio Whitepaper

SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwired - Jun 29, 2016) - Huawei released their GigaRadio whitepaper on the eve of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2016. The key message of this whitepaper is that GigaRadio will empower future-oriented wireless network evolution and help operators notch up new business successes as a new generation solution. This whitepaper describes the innovation course and key technologies of GigaRadio, and expresses that GigaRadio can enable Gbps-level user experience everywhere as well as 5G-oriented smooth network architecture evolution.

GigaRadio was proposed by Huawei at the MWC 2016, as a new standard of network construction with a focus on future network evolution. It is another landmark of innovation for this company, following its innovations in distributed base stations, SingleRAN and Blade Site.

In the next five years, various video applications will become popular. VR/AR, 4K live broadcasting, UAV, the ultimate selfie and driverless vehicles will become widely used in daily life. Videos are expected to contribute to more than 80% of the traffic volume granted by mobile service packages by 2020.

At the same time, people are more and more interested in the ultimate network experience, including a higher peak rate, consistent experience anytime anywhere and indoor-outdoor seamless experience. The whitepaper covers a series of 4.5G-empowering solutions that can satisfy the requirements of single-user Gbps peak rate, single-module Gbps throughput, single-site xGbps capability and indoor-outdoor consistent Gbps-level user experience.

Operators are now confronted with increasing network capacity pressure and ever-growing experience improvement demands. How can they substantially improve the capacity of a single site with minimal network investments to meet the requirements of doubling yearly capacity while ensuring better experience? With scarce and expensive spectrums, how can network capacity be doubled to maximize the value of the current spectrums available to operators? How can the operators continuously and effectively reduce capex and opex to improve their profitability? How should multi-RAT and multi-technology networks be deployed to provide consistent user experience while retaining continuous evolution capabilities?

The GigaRadio whitepaper provides adequate and convincing answers to these problems by introducing next-generation base station products and a series of advanced solutions.

Main points of the whitepaper:

  • GigaRadio provides Gbps capacity and experience. Compared with 4G technologies, GigaRadio enables six-fold system capacity, eightfold peak rate and ten-fold cell edge rate.

  • The GigaRadio innovative spectrum solution doubles the spectral efficiency.

  • The GigaRadio innovative performance solution improves overall network performance by 30%.

  • GigaRadio increases the integration degree by 200% and cuts down power consumption by 30%, reducing the opex by 20%.
