Huawei has been named a leader in GlobalData’s H1 2024 5G market report, “5G RAN: Competitive Landscape Assessment.” This is the sixth consecutive year that Huawei has received this recognition since GlobalData began releasing this report in 2019, highlighting Huawei as a market leader in 5G RAN products and solutions.

The report assesses the competitiveness of 5G RAN equipment vendors across five aspects. Notably, energy efficiency is a key aspect of assessment. Huawei's portfolio was ranked as the leader in all five aspects. This reflects Huawei's long-term efforts to deliver superior performance and experience, simplified deployment, efficient and green O&M, and smooth network evolution.

Huawei’s Market-Leading Product Suite

The report ranks Huawei's AAU products ahead of competitors in portfolio diversity, module output power, and compactness. Huawei's full series MetaAAUs achieved scaled deployments globally to deliver optimal coverage and energy efficiency with the smallest possible site size.

The company's FDD Massive MIMO products, which are compact and easy to deploy, support single-band, dual-band, and tri-band configurations, delivering 10-fold larger capacity and 10 dB better coverage than 4T4R. The solution has been deployed on more than 100 networks around the world and is the only solution that has been commercially adopted on a large scale.

Huawei's RRU products are rated higher than competitors in terms of output power, supported frequency bands, and compactness. Huawei's tri-band 8T solution supports 1.8 GHz, 2.1 GHz, and 2.6 GHz based on true wideband technologies. It works alongside FDD beamforming, tripling spectral efficiency and improving coverage by 7 dB, ultimately consuming 30% less energy than 4T4R.

Huawei's BBU products outperform competitors in capacity, type, number of MIMO layers, and narrowband IoT. These advantages facilitate the medium- and long-term evolution of operator networks.

Multi-level Technology Integration

Huawei's innovative energy-saving technology, 0-bit 0-watt, is supported at the equipment, site, and at network levels. All of Huawei's AAUs, RRUs, and BBUs support 0-bit 0-watt, enabling 99% in-depth energy conservation, whilst also supporting on-demand wakeup.

This energy design has been widely adopted on operator networks at the equipment level. At the site level, the main equipment works with site power supplies to ensure 0-bit 0-watt capabilities.

At the network level, the RAN Intelligent Agent provides on-demand, intelligent scheduling of resources to create dynamic site-specific energy policies based on fluctuating traffic demand.
