ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s cellular company Ufone 4G and Huawei have unveiled commercial deployment of world’s first Microwave Super Hub solution, demonstrating Huawei’s innovative feature of intelligent dynamic power control at large traffic hub sites.
According to a statement on Wednesday the genesis of the Super Hub stems from the challenges linked with the dense link deployment at hub sites driven by growing cellular demands, the shortage of existing spectrum resources and the complexities involved in maintaining and acquiring new frequency bands / equipment, all of which led to challenges in high degree of spectrum reuse and scalability.
It said that the cutting-edge solution boosts spectral efficiency by allowing for the reuse of the same frequency at a remarkable 20° separation: a phenomenal improvement over the existing industry standard of 90° separation. With this closer spatial reuse of same frequency channel, Super Hub drastically enhances spectrum efficiency more than 4 times at different sites.
Ufone 4G and Huawei achieve outstanding results
Through verification and joint testing Ufone 4G and Huawei achieved outstanding results. The Super Hub solution saved 50% of the spectrum, optimizing link interference at Hub sites by 100%, meanwhile all the KPIs were observed stable as per the design requirements.
Jafar Khalid, Group Chief Technology and Information Officer, PTCL & Ufone 4G has expressed optimism in the Super Hub’s abilities, saying they are proud to have successfully deployed the world’s first Super Hub solution in their mobile network and having achieved excellent results.
He said this innovative solution will help Ufone 4G release more capacity from existing spectrum resources to meet the exponential increase in mobile backhaul demand.
This strategic deployment of the Super Hub aligns with Ufone 4G’s commitment to continually pursue pushing the boundaries of technological innovation.
The Super Hub stands as a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration propelling the industry towards new heights of efficiency and performance.
