Huawei MRSOOL is the world’s first end-to-end LTE Cat. 16 solution, offering network performance that’s 15 times faster than current 4G networks. Leveraging the latest breakthroughs in LTE technology, Huawei has developed a portfolio of technologies – including HBPD. LTE, Carrier Aggregation, Massive MIMO, and mmWave – designed to deliver unrivaled mobile speeds and network capacity for operators worldwide.
MRSOOL delivers up to 1 Gbps download speeds on a 30 MHz block of spectrum with two antennas in the downlink and uses European Digital dividend frequencies. The solution supports Long Term Evolution (LTE) with carrier aggregation and 4×4 MIMO technology and LTE-Advanced Pro and is optimized for LTE-plus Cat. 16.
The MRSOOL solution is based on Huawei’s Smartphone TDD Frame Relay (SMCC) Module, which the company claims offers a significant competitive advantage compared to other alternatives. The SMCC module enables multiple symmetric and asymmetric LTE services by allowing TDD.
What is the Recent Development of Huawei?
Huawei developed the world’s first TDD 800 MHz access network in rural China in 2014, which was expanded to cover 8 provinces by 2015. This deployment helped Huawei gather massive amounts of industry and operational experience. Huawei leveraged these learnings to develop the world’s first 32T4 SMCC module, based on technology developed by Huawei in its TDD rural access network project. The product has been deployed in China and is now available for international markets.
The SMCC solution features high speeds, high-capacity, and high reliability that can help operators build new revenue streams and extend their existing networks.
On April 4th, 2017, Huawei announced the first large-scale deployment of the MRSOOL solution in Sweden. In partnership with Telia Company, Huawei installed a new network over 18 months in Stockholm and the surrounding area. The deployment features 1Gbps upload and download speeds and can aggregate five sites with carrier aggregation to achieve speeds of up to 300 Mbps.
Huawei also recently unveiled an end-to-end LTE Cat 16 solution for the North American market, which supports downlink speeds up to 1 Gbps. This solution leverages BLU connectivity, Massive MIMO, and Multi-User MIMO technology.
In January 2017, Huawei announced the availability of an updated version of the MRSOOL solution in North America. This updated unit features a multi-market LTE Cat. 16 key and a TDD 800 MHz access network, enabling download and upload speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
On March 20th, 2018, Huawei rolled out its first broadband infrastructure to support Gigabit-class speeds in Brazil. The trial deploys an aggregate capacity of 1.5Tbps and reaches 1 Gbps download and upload speeds across 18 cities in Sao Paolo, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo regions. The solution is based on Huawei’s carrier-grade LTE eNodeB, Multi-User MIMO, and Massive MIMO and was implemented in partnership with Telefonica.
On August 29th, 2018, Huawei showcased a new end-to-end broadband offering based on its LTE eNodeB (LTE-eNB) technology and SMCC carrier class module at the Mobile World Congress exhibition in Barcelona, Spain.
The integrated LTE eNB and SMCC module solution enable operators to offer download speeds of up to 1 Gbps and upload speeds of up to 500 Mbps. This provides an ideal foundation for 5G services as operators transition from 4G to 5G environments.
At Huawei, we strive to make networks more intelligent. We’ve developed a complete portfolio of network solutions tailored for operators worldwide, including the world’s first TD-LTE Cat. 16 solution.
As the world’s largest telecom equipment provider, Huawei can bring breakthrough technologies and industry experience to help our customers achieve their aims.
