Huawei released their GigaRadio White Paper on the eve of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2016. GigaRadio was proposed by Huawei at the MWC 2016, as a new standard of network construction with a focus on future network evolution. It is another landmark of innovation for this company, following its innovations in distributed base stations, SingleRAN, and Blade Site.
The key message of this white paper is that GigaRadio will empower future-oriented wireless network evolution and help operators notch up new business successes as a new generation solution. This white paper describes the innovation course and key technologies of GigaRadio, and expresses that GigaRadio can enable Gbps-level user experience everywhere as well as 5G-oriented smooth network architecture evolution.
In the next five years, various video applications will become popular. VR/AR, 4K live broadcasting, UAV, ultimate selfie, and driverless vehicles will become widely used in daily life. Videos are expected to contribute to more than 80% of the traffic volume granted by mobile service packages by 2020.
At the same time, people are more and more keen for the ultimate network experience, including a higher peak rate, consistent experience anytime anywhere, and indoor-outdoor seamless experience. The white paper covers a series of 4.5G-empowering solutions that can satisfy the requirements of single-user Gbps peak rate, single-module Gbps throughput, single-site xGbps capability, and indoor-outdoor consistent Gbps-level user experience.
Operators are now confronted with increasing network capacity pressure and ever-growing experience improvement demands. How can they substantially improve the capacity of a single site with minimal network investments to meet the requirements of doubling yearly capacity while ensuring better experience? With scarce and expensive spectrums, how can network capacity be doubled to maximize the value of the current spectrums available to operators? How can the operators continuously and effectively reduce CAPEX and OPEX to improve their profitability? How should multi-RAT and multi-technology networks be deployed to provide consistent user experience while retaining continuous evolution capabilities?
The GigaRadio White Paper provides adequate and convincing answers to these problems by introducing next-generation base station products and a series of advanced solutions with these main points:
- GigaRadio provides Gbps capacity and experience. Compared with 4G technologies, GigaRadio enables sixfold system capacity, eightfold peak rate, and tenfold cell edge rate.
- The GigaRadio innovative spectrum solution doubles the spectral efficiency.
- The GigaRadio innovative performance solution improves overall network performance by 30%.
- GigaRadio increases the integration degree by 200% and cuts down power consumption by 30%, reducing the OPEX by 20%.
