Huawei BladeAAU Pro thus integrates both active and passive antennas, enabling various frequency bands and radio access technologies to be deployed on the same antennas. Huawei’s BladeAAU technology allows simultaneous operation on multiple frequencies and ensures the installation of 5G modules at higher positions on existing poles. With its full-band support and huge bandwidth, it helps operators shorten deployment time and is flexible enough to adapt to different scenarios and operating conditions.
“5G development around the world is treading into unknown territory. Huawei strives to provide innovative products and solutions for global operators to address the challenges faced in 5G business and explore more scenarios for 5G innovation and application, ultimately achieving business success,” said Wang Haitao, CEO of Huawei Switzerland.
Swiss IT company Sunrise UPC, in charge of the 5G network rollout, is forced to retain incumbent 2G, 3G, and 4G base stations, which poses a major logistical problem due to the limited antenna space, but also a security risk due to increased wind resistance and disturbing tower bearing. Although most base stations in Switzerland are set up on a single pole, a building permit is required for any adaptation of the sites where they are located, which can take months or even years. All of this makes it significantly more difficult to adjust to the new 5G construction.
Alexander Lehrmann, Director of New Business Development and Innovation at Sunrise UPC, added that his company looks forward to further innovating with Huawei to advance 5G business development across a variety of new spheres, including smart construction, smart agriculture, smart healthcare, and smart venues.
With its products and services, Huawei is present in more than 170 countries and used by a third of the world’s population. It has suffered a huge blow from sanctions and has fallen below fifth place globally in mobile phone sales, but still holds the leading position in the infrastructure market. Huawei’s global network is built on 20 years of expertise in the telecom sector and the company is dedicated to providing the latest technological breakthroughs to consumers around the world.
