Huawei released the SingleRAN Pro solution, including 5G microwave. That officially launches the CA ODU and modular antenna of 5G microwave, kicking off a new journey of full commercial use of 5G microwave.

Huawei's 5G microwave solution, the industry's first, features ultra-high bandwidth, ultra-low latency, and smooth evolution. It also boasts 5G-oriented features such as the innovative CA ODU, modular antenna, SDB, ultra-low latency IF board, and high-power ODU. It effectively meets bandwidth and latency requirements of 5G networks and reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) of network construction. This helps customers quickly recover their investments, and reduces fiber laying requirements. By improving mobile broadband coverage, more users can enjoy 5G services in the future.

The CA ODU is the industry's first dual-channel CA ODU. Using a new-generation chip, it provides four times the transmission capacity of a traditional ODU by integrating four channels into its hardware. Using CA ODUs reduces the number of required ODUs, reduces tower space by up to half, and reduces tower-climbing costs involved in capacity expansion.

High-bandwidth microwave technology reduces TCO and is easy to deploy. Moreover, innovative modular antennas can be used to upgrade legacy antennas by simply replacing modular components and reusing the dish. This allows capacity to be doubled through single-to-dual polarization, and inter-band frequency changes can be implemented. Using modular antennas reduces installation costs by 60% and shortens the upgrade time by 80%. Since the start of 2018, Huawei's 5G microwave technology has been verified and deployed by multiple operators.
