At this year’s Mobile World Congress, Huawei will launch its 3 Star 2.0 series. This series of site solutions are a step further in innovating form and function.
Each solution improves performance while streamlining site design, deployment, and O&M to help operators and tower vendors effectively reduce their TCO.
With the evolution from LTE to 5G and the application of high frequency bands, site issues are mainly related to acquisition and deployment. As a leading ICT solutions provider, Huawei is dedicated to continuous innovation and has proposed simpler sites for connectivity of everything.
This concept aims to resolve issues in site acquisition, planning, design, and deployment in the 5G era. In its pursuit for excellence in simplicity, Huawei enables operators to rapidly deploy sites and welcome a fully connected digital world.
RuralStar 2.0 is the first site solution. It supports simultaneous access to GSM, UMTS, and LTE, and further extends coverage while being designed to reduce overall costs. Pole structure is improved to decrease weight and facilitate shipment. The concrete base is no longer required, so deployment is easier. Three hops are now supported for up to 60-km transmission. Remote intelligent monitoring makes O&M a breeze.
PoleStar 2.0, the second solution, advocates the new concept that everything can be a site. The solution uses scenario-specific pole sites for easier acquisition and faster addition in urban areas. A Golden Eye provides 3D insights, making network planning easier in hotspots. The non-line-of-sight large-bandwidth backhaul enables fast deployment of 5G without using fiber optic cables.
TubeStar 2.0 is the third solution. It supports sharing between operators, simplifying site deployment and reducing site TCO. Space is reserved for massive MIMO installation to facilitate site evolution towards 5G and capacity expansion.
MWC 2018 will be held from February 26 to March 1 in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei will showcase its products and solutions at booth 1J50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1, booth 3I30 in Hall 3, and the Innovation City zone in Hall.
