Huawei announced that it has successfully deployed the first multi-operator indoor digital network using the LampSite Sharing solution in the UK with EE, O2, and one other mobile network operator
The advanced indoor digital small cell system shared by three operators delivered an excellent MBB experience to their customers compared to a legacy distributed antenna system (DAS) and proved a successful way to enhance 4G indoor mobile coverage in the UK.
With growing demand for indoor mobile broadband and innovative applications such as 2K/4K video and mobile gaming, a seamless and high-speed indoor coverage is highly important. What’s more, a better connected indoor life is an essential part of a smart and safe city. To achieve this, UK operators and neutral hosts are trying innovative solutions.
LampSite Sharing provides an easy-to-deploy and easy-to-manage solution with a high capacity, multi band, multi operator solution while facilitating emerging business models from neutral hosts and operators. The solution has low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) compared to traditional DAS and is ready to evolve to future 5G networks which has long been requested by neutral hosts, said Huawei.
In addition, Huawei’s innovative Virtual 4T4R feature provided max download speeds up to 270 Mbps with a 20 MHz carrier.
