China Mobile Shanghai and Huawei deployed the world’s first 4.9 GHz commercial LampSite network in Shanghai, China. Now for first time that a bandwidth of 200 MHz on the 2.6 and 4.9 GHz bands and distributed Massive MIMO have been simultaneously implemented in digital indoor networks. With the peak rate over 3 Gbps, it satisfies the network requirements to provide premium service experience at areas where traffic demand and user density are high.
This deployment was completed at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC). In 2019, nearly 60,000 people attended this event. The latest 4.9 GHz LampSite units supporting a bandwidth of 100 MHz were adopted to work together with the incumbent 2.6 GHz band to ensure a bandwidth of 200 MHz through carrier aggregation. This enhances the coverage of indoor networks at places like stadiums, airports, and railway stations, to deliver premium experience to mobile users.
China Mobile Shanghai has been a leading telecom carrier in developing 5G networks and to date, it has constructed more than 13,000 5G sites. It has been working with Huawei to explore innovative solutions to ensure excellent mobile user experience in various scenarios. 4.9 GHz is an ideal option for telecom carriers to enhance coverage in indoor hotspots, ensuring premium experience for toC services. This band is also important to ensure 5G coverage in high-quality toB applications.
China Mobile Shanghai will continue to work with Huawei to accelerate the deployment of 5G sites to deliver the continuous coverage required to ensure premium service across the city.
