[London, United Kingdom, November 21, 2018] During the 2018 Global Mobile Broadband Forum, Huawei released a new CloudAIR3.0 solution, which provides multi-dimensional convergence, in-depth sharing, and thorough cloudification of air interface resources to help operators ensure smooth LTE/5G-oriented evolution of full spectrum.
This solution brings the following benefits to customers' networks: 1. Multi-mode (GULM) sharing enables fundamental networks featuring all RATs and wide coverage to be deployed in small bandwidth scenarios. 2. Multi-band and multi-RAT joint scheduling improves network efficiency. 3. LTE and 5G new air interfaces deployed together dynamically share the same spectrum resources, accelerating 5G full-band deployment.
Since the launch of CloudAIR1.0/2.0, commercial progress has been sped up. CloudAIR has been applied on 100 commercial networks worldwide in 2018, with the number of deployments expected to exceed 200 in 2019.
"Huawei never stops innovating, and the CloudAIR solution will continue to evolve." Ma Hongbo, Huawei SingleRAN SPDT Manager highlighted. CloudAIR will enter its 3.0 phase to support more flexible resource sharing between LTE and 5G NR. This helps operators improve spectral efficiency and accelerate 5G deployment on the entire network.
Together with industry partners GSMA and GTI, the 2018 Global Mobile Broadband Forum hosted by Huawei was held in London, UK on November 19–21, 2018, and attended by global operators, regulators, and vertical operators. Industry partners, as well as media and analysts gathered to shape the future of the mobile industry.
