MTC Namibia has partnered with Huawei to put the 4T6S solution (as a part of the SingleRAN Pro solution) into large-scale commercial use.

The area selected to benefit from this solution is the central business district of Windhoek. This move is a conscious decision to efficiently improve network capacity and overall user experience while helping to slash site power consumption and total cost of operation.

According to Huawei, the broad deployment of this solution will help MTC Namibia to continuously widen its lead in the MBB market, while supporting its network strategy of prioritizing the best possible capacity, coverage, and quality of service.

The huge influx of tourists and people flowing throughout the city generates ultra-high data traffic and brings abundant business opportunities to MTC's mobile networks. To cope with the situation, MTC Namibia decided to deploy Huawei's latest 4T6S solution and perform capacity expansion at 1.8GHz, 2.1GHz bands in advance. The updated network is sure to handle the onsite heavy traffic and provide premium user experience.

After the 4T6S is deployed, resource congestion is greatly eased and the transmission data rate is considerably faster, claims Huawei. With the average upload and download time shortened by 52%, subscribers can now access more benefits and perks brought by such mobile networks. In addition, MTC Namibia and Huawei have provided customized services for small and medium-sized enterprises, leading to 79% growth of traffic in the area. Subscribers' long suppressed traffic requirements have been released.
