Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has announced the release of the industry's first LTE small cell router, the Huawei ATN 905, which will help small base stations obtain high-rate media access across a variety of scenarios, in turn allowing operators to extend their backhaul network coverage.
Over the past 2-3 years, many of the service providers in the GCC have moved to the implementation phase after trailing small cell technology on their home systems. While many of these technologies were previously suited to 2G/3G networks, service providers’ simultaneous evolution to LTE will create further demand for solutions like the Huawei ATND 905.
The ATN 905 helps meet the challenges of deploying large base station routers into small base stations as a result of site and installation requirements. The new router supports any media access, including Fiber, GPON and xDSL, to offer additional resources for the existing network. The ATN 905 also supplies power through Ethernet ports to overcome the many issues associated with powering small base stations, and also enabling plug-and-play and remote service deployment to ease operations.
As a member of the ATN series Huawei's base station router solution, the ATN 905 can provide an end-to-end IP RAN mobile backhaul solution with existing ATN products. With its rich-clock features and complete protection schemes, the ATN 905 also supports the customized requirements of service transmission on small stations.
In addition, the ATN 905 OAM (Operations, Administration and Management) functions can be used to monitor Ethernet faults, allowing operators to quickly locate faults in VIP private line services.
Within the last year, Huawei has pioneered a number of industry firsts within the global LTE market as well as partnering with leading GCC operators in planning, deploying and optimizing LTE mobile broadband networks.
