Huawei Introduces Packet Microwave System for North America

Huawei unveiled its Packet Microwave System RTN 900 series optimized for Ethernet and IP, and able to provide a throughput of up to 1 Gbps per carrier frequency.

The new RTN 900 series for North American includes the RTN 910 and RTN 950 products, which integrates advanced packet compression technology to increase throughput per carrier frequency from 400 Mbps to 1 Gbps. This is achieved by optimizing the overhead associated MAC, VLAN, MPLS and IP protocols. In addition, this series supports MPLS tunneling technology which simplifies provisioning and allows seamless interoperability with Metro Ethernet networks.

Huawei also introduced a series of small cell solutions: the BTS3202E for LTE, the BTS3902E for UMTS, and the BTS3702E and BTS3701B for WiMAX. Huawei said these products enhance its SingleRAN solution, and capitalizes on advancements in areas including smaller cell technology, Self Organizing Network (SON) and the LTE radio air interface.
