Huawei unveiled the upgraded OceanConnect IoT Platform which now supports Connected Vehicle systems; the eLTE-IoT Solution which has new capabilities to improve performance; and the new eLTE-DSA Solution.
The upgraded eLTE-IoT Solution uses technological innovation to improve its performance. The solution covers a radius of 10 km with 10 percent stronger signals. Its communications latency is reduced by 50 percent and the maximum standby time is extended to 10 years.
The eLTE-DSA solution, newly unveiled by Huawei at CEBIT, uses Discrete Spectrum Aggregation (DSA) technology to create a large bandwidth spectrum through the convergence of small spectrums.
DSA technology can flexibly select and aggregate them to bring several valuable features. The solution supports the flexible aggregation of all the 280 spectrums around 230 MHz; Huawei will also promote the application of DSA in other frequencies in the future.
The company said eLTE-DSA also improves the coverage radius by 40 percent and the air interface latency is reduced to 20ms.
Huawei has moved to second place in 2017 from third place in 2016 in the global enterprise network equipment market in 2017, according to Gartner. Cisco is the enterprise network equipment market leader.
