Huawei introduced an enhanced version of its enterprise LTE (eLTE) broadband trunking solution, which launched last year and has been deployed in various vertical industries, including government, energy, transportation and smart grids around the world. Huawei's eLTE supports downlink rates of up to 100 Mbps and uplinks at up to 50 Mbps.
The enhanced version, named eLTE 3.1 Broadband Trunking Solution, supports a broad set of eLTE services, including broadband trunking video surveillance. It supports multiple frequency bands, including 400M, 800M, 1.4G, 1.8G, 2.3G for broadband trunking, and 400M ~ 5.8G for broadband access services.
The solution is interoperable with Huawei's Telepresence and TETRA systems and supports audio and video communications between 14U core network which supports 31 to 1500 sites, 2U core network which supports 2 to 30 sites, emergency communications vehicles, rapid deployment system, and visual dispatch.
"As the first vendor in the industry to adopt LTE technologies in the enterprise domain, Huawei has demonstrated deep understanding of customers' needs. With in-depth experience in the industry and upcoming technology trends, we are pleased to introduce the eLTE 3.1 broadband trunking solution," said Mr. Norman Frisch, Director of Marketing, Huawei Enterprise Wireless Solution Sales Department. "Aimed to develop smarter cities with eLTE, the new eLTE 3.1 broadband trunking solution will feature multiple frequency band support, flexible networking and strong adaption in harsh environments, enhancing overall operational efficiency of enterprises."
Huawei also noted that ,as of December 2013, it has signed 46 contracts with customers to design innovative eLTE network solutions to address specific application scenarios for the public sector, transportation, energy, and other industries globally. For instance, Huawei supplied an eLTE-based urban rail transportation solution for Zhengzhou Metro in China. The solution features highly reliable bilateral radio transmission channels for train-to-ground voice, data, and video transmissions, improving the overall communication and operational efficiency of rail transportation.
