SHENZHEN, China -- According to Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, 2013 was the most significant year for LTE development worldwide to date. More than 110 commercial LTE networks were launched, with multiple new data optimization technologies reaching maturity and seeing deployment. At the forefront of these developments, advances in antenna technologies for flexibly handling additional spectrum bands and enabling remote electrical tilt (RET), configuration and maintenance, took a substantial step forward.

2013 represented a milestone year for Huawei’s antenna business, with more than 1.65 million Huawei antennas now deployed in over 155 countries for 360 operators on six continents. This high growth is attributed to breakthrough deployments in China, Russia and European countries, including the UK and France. In China, Huawei’s multi-band ultra broadband antenna solution is being used to help build the country’s new LTE network.

According to ABI Research, a leading market research and market intelligence firm, LTE is creating significant opportunities for mobile carriers, leading to a need for them to carefully consider their LTE antenna options to meet their long-term goals on capital expenditure. In a recently released report LTE Antenna Design The Performance of Your Network, ABI analyzed the antenna marketplace and evaluated vendor companies within an “Innovation” versus “Implementation” matrix. All major LTE antenna vendors were evaluated in terms of innovation and technology capabilities including ultra-wide band support for multiple spectrum bands, multiple input multiple output (MIMO), electric tilt, antenna dipole design, passive inter-modulation (PIM) minimization, and active antenna system (AAS). Huawei achieved high scores across all categories and, according to ABI, accounted for 20.7 percent of global LTE antenna shipments in 2013, ranking it second globally.

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.
