SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced the industry’s first LTE TDD wireless backhaul solution, ‘eRelay’, designed to address small cell transmission challenges, and ease constraints on transmission resources when small cells are deployed.

In response to the explosive growth of mobile broadband network traffic, operators worldwide have begun to deploy small cells in hotspot areas to enhance overall network capacity. Many of the small cell deployments in these hotspot areas are hampered by a lack of transmission resources. Operators globally are now focused on meeting these transmission demands and addressing the flexible deployment challenges facing small cells.

Huawei’s formulation of the eRelay solution is based on the analysis of micro base station deployments. It utilizes SingleRAN’s unified hardware platform, advanced LTE technology, 256 high-order QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) and MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) technology, providing wider bandwidth and greater transmission capacity. Working in the same way as microwave transmissions, eRelay is a cost-efficient solution that uses NLOS (Non-Line of Sight) transmission, and is also able to support PtMP (Point-to-Multipoint) transmission.
