On 18th October Huawei launched its SingleBAND intelligent multi-frequency fusion solution at the 2021 Global MBB Forum. This solution integrates two innovative technologies to achieve the best overall network performance and contribute to the 5Gigaverse ecosystem.
Huawei SingleBAND solution offers edge cutting attributes such as flexible frequency decoupling, full-band multi-beam, three-dimensional coordination, and intelligent base stations. It mainly targets to increases the spectrum’s value. Let’s explore the two concepts on which the Huawei SingleBAND solution is based.
Multi-frequency Integration of One Network Concept:
As well known, 5G will demand more frequency bands alongside versatile bandwidths. It’ll increase the coverage performance between TDD and FDD bands. In addition, the multi-frequency integration on one network using efficient coordination of multi-frequency network resources will be able to achieve mutual assistance between multiple frequency bands.
As mentioned earlier, there are two innovative technologies applied to this solution. The first one is flexible decoupling of all frequency bands to help ubiquitous gigabit experience. Meanwhile, the second one is a full-band multi-beam three-dimensional coordinated scheduling to increase the capacity of the entire network. A brief description of both is given below-
First Innovative Technology:
The first technology is flexible decoupling that carries 5G NR uplink services using the Sub-3G spectrum. It enchanted the overall TDD uplink and downlink coverage. To be more precise, the supplementary uplink carrier bandwidth of 100MHz delivers a higher uplink rate 1.1Gbps for each user. In addition, the average user experience gain is recorded by 30%.
Second Innovative Technology:
The second technology that has been integrated into this solution is multi-antenna. It helped in realizing multi-user pairing through a single frequency band. Moving ahead, the full-band multi-beam three-dimensional coordinated scheduling has improved the network capacity by 25%.
Intelligent Base Stations: Upgrade of Regular Multi-Frequency Technology
The intelligent base stations are able to forecast the air interface signal strength, spectrum efficiency, beam, and other conditions. It brings accuracy and an increase in traditional multi-frequency characteristics. Moreover, a total of 20% progress has been seen in the multi-frequency network’s average user experience.
At the event, Huawei SingleRAN Domain President- Jiang Xudong commented, there is no end to innovations. Huawei proposes the SingleBAND intelligent solution target to conquer the current challenges of complex networks in the 5G epoch.
