Huawei Deploys In-Building Mobile Offering With Vodafone
READING, UK -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced it has deployed ‘Lampsite’, as its in-building mobile coverage solution at the company’s UK headquarters on a live Vodafone UK network.
Prior to the deployment, despite very good macro coverage available outside the building, signal penetration indoors had been limited, resulting in poor network coverage and capacity. Following the deployment, mobile subscribers now enjoy data speeds of up to 10 Mb/s even during busy office hours, higher voice quality and virtually no dropped calls. The building where LampSite has been successfully activated totals 12,000 square meters over four floors and receives up to 1,100 employees and visitors a day.
The development of the LampSite solution deployed in the Huawei UK headquarters was a joint effort between Vodafone and Huawei technology innovation teams. The LampSite system is designed to be extremely scalable and flexible, and is easy to deploy and manage – so in-building networks can be deployed in a few days instead of a few months. LampSite also offers operators the capability to provide their subscribers with a best-in-class user experience indoors that can also help enterprises increase business productivity with more seamless mobile communication.
