SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (“Huawei”), a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it has launched the world’s first LTE eNodeB ready for large-scale commercial deployment. This LTE eNodeB is able to fully support a downlink rate of up to 150 Mbps in commercial LTE networks.

By adopting 64QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) and MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology with 2T2R (two transmitters and two receivers) capabilities, Huawei’s latest LTE eNodeB is able to maximise the use of the ultra-wide bandwidth of LTE networks. Higher-speed connection can provide end-users with unprecedented mobile data services such as high-definition VOD (Video-on-Demand) and high-simulation video conferencing. The SON (Self Organising Networks) solution of this eNodeB is able to automatically configure and optimise new cells in an LTE network. With this solution, operators can reduce the expenses in operation and smoothly evolve to next-generation networks without much further investment.

Mr. Wan Biao, President of Wireless, Huawei, said: “It is a great milestone in the development of LTE technology. Based on our fourth-generation base station platform, this LTE eNodeB will enable operators worldwide to offer to high-quality LTE services immediately and accelerate the maturity of LTE industry.”
