Chinese vendor Huawei has been selected by Chile’s Entel Group to roll out a nationwide GSM/UMTS/Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband network for the telco’s Peruvian subsidiary Nextel. The network will cover nearly all of Peru and will make use of Huawei’s Active Antenna Unit (AAU) solution for integrated radio units and multi-band antenna products. According to Huawei, the AAU solution ‘facilitates rapid site deployments, and provides site space savings of up to 75% on rooftops, towers and poles.’
