HEBEI, China -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, together with China Mobile, today announced the successful deployment of the world’s first LTE TDD 8T8R Active Antenna Unit (AAU) in Hebei, China. The newly improved AAU simplifies installation and has improved the cell edge download rate by 55% in field tests.

Huawei’s AAU series integrates the antenna unit and the remote radio unit (RRU) in one box, removing the need for operators to install two units separately. This improved installation efficiency reduces ongoing maintenance costs and the level of site space required.

Huawei AAU products are now available globally for LTE TDD-enabled operators. For LTE FDD-enabled operators, Huawei has successfully deployed its AAU solution in over 10 countries including the UK, Germany, Singapore, and Russia.

China Mobile, the leading LTE TDD operator, was the first to deploy Huawei’s LTE TDD AAU with a total of 10,000 Huawei 4T4R AAU units in 2013. Once 8T8R AAU was rolled out, China Mobile adopted this solution in Hebei province and plans a large scale deployment in the near future.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
