Huawei Shows its Unified LTE Solution at Mobile World Congress

Huawei Technologies demonstrated the world' s first unified frequency-division duplex and time-division duplex (FDD/TDD) long-term evolution (LTE) solution last week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

In January 2009, Huawei was awarded the world' s first LTE commercial contract by TeliaSonera, the largest telecommunication operator in Scandinavia and the Baltic countries. Huawei was also selected by Telus and Bell to deploy North America' s first LTE-oriented HSPA network in Canada in 2008. As of today, Huawei' s LTE research has made more than 2,100 contributions to LTE and system architecture evolution, and the company owns ten percent of all LTE patents.

At the event, Huawei also showcased its enhanced SingleRAN solution, which now includes three elements -- Uni-equipment, Uni-site and Uni-operation -- that allow operators to deploy and evolve their networks with greater ease.
