Sets new record by swapping over 10000 base stations in six months
NEW DELHI, JUNE 07, 2016: Telenor has completed the largest commercial deployment of Huawei’s Blade Site wireless base-station solution in India. Between November 2015 to April 2016, more than 10000 new sites were installed across Telenor’s six circles with the solution. This is the fastest ever deployment of the blade site solution in the country.
Telenor India selected Huawei Blade Site Solution to be future ready and meet the growing demand for improved voice and data services from its customers. Telenor currently has 52.4 million subscribers. The new network can support latest mobile technology including 4G / LTE services to deliver high speed Internet.
Commenting on the milestone, Tanveer Mohammad, chief operating officer, Telenor (India) Communications said, “Telenor is committed to extend benefits of affordable mobile broadband network to enrich lives of our customers. By deploying Huawei Blade Site solution we have not only accelerated the speed of installation of a new network but also increased coverage and improved network quality experience within the available resources. The swapped sites have shown higher spectral and power efficiencies that has helped us reduce our operational expense.”
The Huawei Blade Site solution is based on deep understanding of customer requirements. It supports flexible combinations of Baseband Unit (BBU), Radio Frequency (RF) and power modules, provides Global System for Mobile (GSM), Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) and LTE three-mode concurrent operations, delivering operators an effective solution to deploy at complex sites. A multi-band multi-RAT wireless base station has become the standard for network construction, and the Huawei Blade Site solution efficiently utilizes the limited site footprint to enhance network capacity, providing users with a better mobile broadband experience and help Telenor build a more valuable mobile broadband network.
“Huawei and Telenor Group will build on our strategic partnership to achieve greater business success through the scaled commercial deployment of Blade Site solution,” said Sun Fuyou, President, Huawei Southeast Asia region. “Blade Site solutions help operators to access site resources easily, improve the user experience and achieve commercial success.
