Huawei deploys LampSite Sharing solution for UK cellular trio at London event

22 Nov 2017

Chinese vendor Huawei has announced the deployment of what it claims is the first multi-operator indoor digital network using the LampSite Sharing solution in the UK, doing so with EE, O2 UK and one other unnamed mobile network operator (MNO) during the global Mobile Broadband Forum (MBBF) event at the ExCel, London. In a press release, Huawei said that the advanced indoor digital small cell system shared by the three MNOs delivered an improved mobile broadband experience to their customers when compared to a legacy distributed antenna system (DAS), and proved a successful way to enhance 4G indoor mobile coverage. The vendor said it took only three days to deploy the LampSite Sharing system in the exhibition area at ExCel and provided a sharing solution for the three operators across multiple bands and carriers. In addition, Huawei’s Virtual 4T4R feature enabled the provision of maximum downlink speeds of up to 270Mbps with a 20MHz carrier.
