Huawei, today released its newest hexa-band antenna on 700/850-900MHz that is designed to support carriers to rapidly deploy higher capacity LTE networks. Unveiling this at the Antenna & AAU (Active Antenna Unit) Summit for Asia Pacific regional carriers in Bali, Huawei said that the new antenna system adopts its "Dipole Reuse" technology which supports more bands without requiring size modifications, resulting in a reduction in width of 50% compared to a traditional hexa-band antenna, thus allowing easy deployment and reduced wind loads. The hexa-band antenna also supports multi-band network via flexible MIMO, providing higher network capacity and satisfies the needs of various application requirements. In addition, it also supports Multi-band and ultra band that are reserved for the addition of future LTE bands in order to satisfy fast LTE deployment requirements.

Huawei noted that with the rapid development of the mobile broadband market in Asia Pacific, the number of smart terminals is increasing, creating a challenge for network capacity. The slower release of newer spectrum, such as the 700MHz, would required carriers to rethink on how to rebuild the antenna system, added Huawei.
