Huawei’s successful network test shows they are a force to be reckoned with in the 5G race.

Companies could see a reduction in investment costs and improved customer experience thanks to an advance in 5G decoupling over an end-to-end network from Huawei and BT’s EE.

Huawei showcased a 5G deployment with 5G New Radio and LTE co-site deployment to separate uplink and downlink (UL/DL) on different bands at the Global Mobile Broadband Forum in London on Thursday.

C-band coverage and UX is improved through use of LTE/4G bands carrying 5G uplink data.

The decoupling enables C-band and 1.8GHz co-site deployment with the same coverage.

In 5G C-Band deployments uplink coverage can be severely limited compared to downlink coverage owing to higher bands and greater power gaps between sites and terminals, according to the companies.
