Huawei RuralLink wins Best Mobile Innovation for Emerging Markets award
Huawei is enraging new awards on the second day of the MWC 2023 showcase, as its RuralLink has won GLOMO’s ‘Best Mobile Innovation for Emerging Markets’ award from GSMA.
“We’re honored to receive this award from GSMA for Huawei RuralLink innovations in transmission and antennas allow green, simplified, and evolvable rural sites, and extend experience-guaranteed coverage to remote areas, enabling experience upgrade for more people, villages, and small and medium-sized enterprises,” said Aaron Jiang, President of Huawei’s Wireless SingleRAN Product Line.
Huawei’s RuralLink solution uses innovative unique technologies to address challenges in rural communications and provides ubiquitous coverage with ultra-low cost and power consumption. This solution is the industry’s first to use microwave fronthaul technology.
Rural sites can share baseband resources of existing base stations, eliminating the need to deploy independent baseband units. One RRU and one Channel Expand Antenna are capable of achieving three-sector coverage.
Not only that, there is no longer a requirement for BBUs, which further reduces site power consumption. Only 4 PV modules are needed for supplying power to the entire site. With one-off deployment, RuralLink can currently support 2G, 3G, and 4G services and can evolve to 5G, providing long-term experience-guaranteed coverage for rural areas.
Mobile network coverage is critical for improving education and healthcare and plays an important role in eradicating poverty and protecting the environment. It is a prominent factor that aligns with the 5 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) — No Poverty, Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Reduced Inequalities, and Climate Action.
