[Jakarta, Indonesia, November 3, 2014]: Huawei showcased its latest LTE TDD solutions, including the new LTE TDD Relay, during the second annual Indonesian ICT Carnival and LTE Summit 2014, hosted by The Ministry of Communication and Information of Indonesia.
Huawei’s new Relay solution works as a wireless backhaul based on Time Division Duplex (TDD) that can be easily installed to reduce the challenges and significant costs related to fiber deployment for operators. The solution is also able to realize Point to Multi Point transmission, even on Non-Line-of-Sight scenarios, and will support demand for in-depth coverage as it enables coverage extension for macro sites. For countries with limited transmission resources, such as Indonesia, Relay solution delivers more benefits to operators in wireless network deployment. Recently, the first Relay solution trial was completed in Lianyungang, an eastern coastal city in China. By using Relay, the coverage was extended to an island 30 kilometers away in the Yellow Sea where fiber transmission is impossible. The test results verified the stability of wireless transmission over 45 kilometers and the download throughput almost reached 50Mbps.
In addition to the Relay solution announcement, Huawei also showcased other LTE TDD solutions, including the Adaptive Antenna Unit (8T8R AAU), Easy Macro, and LampSite. These solutions have been validated across China’s commercial network, passing regulatory testing and are expected to be deployed to overseas carriers soon.
The Indonesian ICT Carnival and LTE Summit 2014 was attended by representatives from The Ministry of Communication and Information of Indonesia, the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Jakarta, as well as leading global operators such as China Mobile, GSMA, Qualcomm, Telkomsel and service providers. Commenting on the Topic of the summit, LTE TDD, Dr. Riant Nugroho, Organizing Committee Head of the Indonesian Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (BRTI) remarked that the LTE TDD industry witnessed a huge leap in 2014 and that he believes LTE TDD will see significant development in Indonesia in the future.
