Huawei’s cluster antenna solution allows for more flexibility in telcos’ business planning
[Nov 7th, 2019]

Huawei has unveiled its new cluster antenna solution for Africa ahead of ICT showcase, AfricaCom, which will take place in Cape Town from 12-14 November.

This solution allows for more space-saving on cell towers by highly integrating antennas.

This cluster antenna solution supports 1710-2690 MHz high band 4T4R evolution. Each antenna is capable of achieving full band coverage of 2G, 3G and 4G at one time.

David Chen, Director of Marketing & Solution Sales for Huawei Southern Africa Region says, “This is a solution that gives carriers more flexibility in terms of network planning and upgrading, especially as site acquisition has increasingly become a constraint for them to quickly deploy telecom infrastructure.”

Due to non-standardised processes, lack of uniform institutional frameworks, and various unaligned procedures, site acquisition which usually takes a long time is increasingly hampering the development of telcos. Future networks will be centered on user experience and layered and heterogeneous network construction based on business requirements. 5G, for example, will require higher base station density.

Huawei’s cluster antenna has a more compact design and lighter total weight, which simplifies installation and maintenance. This increases its adaptiveness to new types of sites including street light poles and billboard poles, which might be an efficient options to meet the future needs for higher base stations density.

Huawei has been deeply involved in the antenna industry for 15 years, boasting the largest R&D team in the industry. With its in-depth understanding of mobile broadband network, Huawei is able to overcome operators’ “Site Space/Load Limited”, and enable them to reduce Total Cost of Operation TCO and shorten Time to Market TTM.

AfricaCom is Africa’s biggest telecoms and technology event takes place annually in Cape Town, South Africa. At this year’s 3-day event, Huawei will showcase its end-to-end 5G ability, innovative tools to facilitate the industry’s digital transformation and explore new opportunities that have emerged with new technologies.
