Huawei to unveils new 5G air interface technologies

DUBAI, February 26, 2015

Huawei is set to unveil a series of new 5G-oriented air interface technologies at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015.

The GSMA event will run from March 2 to 5 in Barcelona, Spain.

The innovations revolving around 5G are driven by exponentially increasing appetite for mobile Internet and the Internet of Things (IoT), which are expected to dominate by 2020 and beyond, and are expected to deliver the ultimate user experience based on traffic growth of 1,000 per cent, said a statement.

In order to fully develop 5G technology, revolutionary air interface techniques, networking techniques, and network architectures are prerequisites. Of all these emerging techniques, next-generation air interface is most essential and fundamentally significant, it said.

Due to having heavily invested in next generation technology research, Huawei’s 5G research and development (R&D) team has achieved remarkable breakthroughs in 5G air interface, virtualized radio access, as well as new RF technologies.

Among the new air interface techniques proposed by Huawei, the self-adaptive and software-defined air interface designs, namely the non-orthogonal access technology based on Sparse Code Multiple Access (SCMA), and Filtered-Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (F-OFDM) are the most remarkable, said the statement.

Huawei has tested the validity of its conceptual prototype. The results proved that the new air interface design can effectively improve spectral efficiency, increase connectivity, and reduce latency, thus facilitating the deployment of customised scenarios applied to the Internet of Things (IoT) and for high bandwidth-consuming scenarios such as virtual reality.

Another achievement that will be revealed by Huawei at MWC 2015 is its 5G air interface architecture, which has proven capable of supporting the full duplex prototype technology featuring multi-path fading cancellation and large bandwidth.

The test results showed that this entirely new duplex mechanism is able to improve spectral efficiency by 200 per cent, laying a solid foundation for future unification of TDD and FDD spectrums. - TradeArabia News Service
