​The Mobile World Congress 2017 has seen a plethora of innovations and exciting announcements.

Huawei has launched a number of products, including its 5000 series base station, which utilises innovative technologies to empower mobile operators to build a 5G-oriented network.

The station is built for the future with up to 10 times the support capacity of existing base stations, in addition to 30 percent better performance and on top of that, 20 percent OPEX savings. The company affirms that with its new-generation 5000 base station, Huawei leads the industry in technology innovation, user experience and commercial success.

The radio unit of the 5000 series is a modular design, based on leading Power Amplifier (PA) technology.

Huawei asserts it achieves the highest level of integration in the industry with best-in-class performance and a high out power. It supports flexible multi-channels such as 4T4R, 8T8R and 64T64R (Massive MIMO) capabilities.

Furthermore, the 5000 series base station baseband modules use new-generation baseband signalling processing chipsets and new architecture design to support Multi-RAT and Massive MIMO technologies.

According to Huawei, these innovations be of huge benefit to operators by enabling them to build efficient, agile and more economical networks with 10 times the capacity to meet future mobile broadband traffic growth.

Huawei president of wireless network marketing and solution sales, An Jian says the company is dedicated to solving operator challenges and meeting their demands.

“Broadband traffic will continue to surge with the emergence of new and diversified applications,” Jian says.

“The innovative 5000 series base station provides powerful performance and futureproof design to help operators building leading ultra-mobile broadband networks. This accelerates the exploration of business opportunities, meets demands of evolution from 4.5G to 5G, and achieves commercial success.”
