The company says the trial demonstrates the capability of its No-Edge Network concept in enabling high mobile download speeds. “The results showed that uplink CoMP can effectively double data rates at cell edges for a single user, improving network performance in terms of coverage, spectrum efficiency and throughput,” said Huawei’s Ying Weimin.
“This is a key milestone for the LTE industry,” he said Weimin. “Our No-Edge Network concept utilises various LTE, LTE-A and other new technologies to realise ultra-broadband, zero-waiting and ubiquitous connectivity. This results in an enhanced experience and brings users the benefits of speed, quality and simplicity.” Huawei has secured over 100 commercial LTE/EPC contracts worldwide and has launched 45 commercial LTE networks.
In a separate announcement it said that its 100G network now spans more than 50,000 kilometres, “a distance longer than the circumference of Earth”. The company’s 100G networks serve more than 40 carriers in over 30 countries, including the world's most extensive 100G network for Russia's largest fixed network carrier, Rostelecom.
According to a recent report from consultancy firm Ovum, Huawei currently leads 100G deployment with a 39% market share.
