China Mobile Deploys Huawei 4G Base Station on Mt. Everest

China Mobile has deployed a Huawei 4G base station on Mount Everest at an elevation of 5,200 meters (the summit is 8,848m).

Huawei’s GSM base stations have been in service at the Mount Everest base camp since 2007. Huawei has already delivered 4G solutions to other parts of the region including EPC, integrated equipment rooms, BTS, microwave transmission and 4G devices.

David Wang, President of Huawei Wireless Networks, said: “Bringing 4G to Mount Everest marks an important milestone in global LTE TDD development. We are very excited to make this possible, and look forward to working with more operators worldwide to bring high-speed mobile broadband services anytime and anywhere.”
