Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst – Mobile Networks and 5G, Heavy Reading

Leon Zhang, CMO of 5G Product Line, Huawei

With 5G networks are live around the world, the industry is looking to the next phase of deployment and performance. For equipment vendors, this means the need to innovate in software and hardware is relentless. In this webinar Huawei will present its latest innovations from its commercial 5G RAN portfolio. Among the topics to be discussed are:

  • Latest C-Band Massive MIMO – these new RU products capable of 400 MHz bandwidth, with 320Wats of output power and automatic beam adjustment, are now available in a hardware package that weighs just 25KG
  • Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) -- to rapidly increase 5G NR coverage using low-band spectrum. Millisecond switching allows DSS to improve spectrum resource utilization (vs. hard spectrum allocation) and maintain 4G user experience
  • 5G Super Uplink – based on work with Chinese operators, Huawei will present ideas to improve NR uplink capability
  • 5G Site Design – site costs and aesthetics are extremely important. The correct product design enables operators to build sites that are faster to deploy, have a lower physical footprint, consume less power, and are visually discreet

Join Heavy Reading Principal Analyst Gabriel Brown and Huawei’s Dong Zhang on December 18 to learn more on the status of 5G technology innovation as well as ecosystem development around the globe.
