[Bangkok, Thailand, November 10, 2014]: Huawei together with AIS, the leading mobile operator in Thailand, announced the deployment of the Huawei innovative Active Antenna Unit (AAU)-based Easy MacroTM solution in Thailand. The solution will be deployed across the AIS network aiming to build the best Mobile Broadband (MBB) network in Thailand and enhance their user experiences.

We are delighted to work with Huawei, one of our main suppliers. Their commitment to developing leading technologies and focusing on innovation supports us to meet our goals.”
