GigaRadio – Key Technologies & Future Evolution – Huawei White Paper
There is an accelerating technology shift to Mobile Broadband (MBB) networks across the world. MBB connections accounted for almost 50% of total connections in 2015. This number will increase to more than 70% by 2020. Huawei expect the number of MBB users around the world to reach 6.7 billion by 2020, while each user is expected to use as much as 5 GB of data per month. Meanwhile, there is already a need for wide scale development of an Internet of Things (IoT). By 2020, there will be some 3 billion cellular IoT connections worldwide.
Innovation never stops to meet the MBB increasing demands. Huawei introduced Distributed Base Station (DBS) solution in 2004 and since then, Huawei have developed a trend in the industry by coming up with major innovations in base station technologies every four years. Huawei introduced Software Defined Radio (SDR) based SingleRAN base station in 2008, Blade Site solution in 2012 and Innovative GigaRadio in 2016 to meet the needs of the modern day MBB network requirements.
