Huawei and Saudi Telecom have developed the world’s first SuperLink network solution and installed it in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. The latest product delivers extraordinary performance and stability in terms of network operations.
The SuperLink solution mainly aims to improve network services in the region. As the name reflects, it comprises a single-link bandwidth of 10Gbps and provides advanced and high-frequency rates in 5G coverage.
Further, the excellent product supports a single antenna which saves 67% of the antenna area and 70% of the equipment. Also, the SuperLink network solution is the first product of Huawei and Saudi Telecom which uses a multi-frequency antenna and 4-in-1 CA ODU carrier collection.
To be mentioned, a multi-frequency antenna includes a variety of frequency bands. For instance 6GHz, 7GHz, 8GHz, 13GHz, 15GHz, and more. With the help of this mechanism, operators get relief from using a separate antenna every time while receiving a new frequency.
In addition, the 4-in-1 CA (Carrier Aggregation) ODU (Outdoor Unit) combines four components in one piece of equipment. Thus, it decreases the number of external units by 75%. Besides, it contains higher modulation functioning elements and large bandwidth that increases the single ODU capability by 500%.
With such elements, the Superlink solution can offer a network with efficient performance for minimal costs.
SuperLink solution will speed up 5G development
The Vice President of infrastructure at the Saudi Telecom Company (STC) – Eng. Bader A. Allhieb believes that the unique network solution will accelerate the 5G evolution in Saudi Arabia. Moreover, it will end the long-distance network coverage issues in suburban areas.
So far, Saudi Arabia has been using E-band bearers for distant places. However, the traditional solutions didn’t prove much effective for users. Hence, Saudi Telecom decided to collaborate with Huawei and deploy some meaningful products in the region.
On the flip side, Huawei said that it will continue to innovate new technologies that can contribute to the 5G evolution across the world.
