Huawei demos 1Gbps capability, claims it’s Malaysia’s fastest indoor speed

- Indoor networks account for 70% of mobile traffic
- Small cells resolve blind spots and congestion
ICT solutions provider Huawei Technologies Co Ltd said it demonstrated 1Gbps connectivity at the recent Malaysia Small Cell Industry Summit in Kuala Lumpur, claiming it was Malaysia’s fastest indoor speed.
Today, indoor networks account for 70% of mobile traffic, the company said in a statement.
Compared with outdoor networks, indoor coverage in Malaysia is often very poor, due to the traditional indoor network system which has been in place for a decade and is not able to cope with the fast growing demands for mobile broadband, it said.
Furthermore, it is a challenge to deploy a traditional indoor network system, and the process to obtain the necessary installation permits can be tedious and lengthy, it added.
Huawei said its digitalised small cell is designed to address this issue, particularly in busy areas where mobile traffic can get congested.
Huawei’s centralised radio access network (C-RAN) architecture makes capacity expansion and deployment easier, the company claimed. Cells can be dynamically split to meet capacity requirement, and new technologies can be easily attached via a software upgrade.
Huawei said its small cell solutions have been commercially deployed and implemented in over 100 countries.
