Known for its ultra-long distance and high-speed coverage, the first commercial application of a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network covering 3.6 ~3.8 GHz has been deployed in Ozaworice, Poland. The enterprise-LTE (eLTE) broadband-access system, developed by Huawei, promises to provide efficient operational communications for governments. It also promises to provide optimal connectivity in emergency incidents and harsh environments. The network has been tested in a variety of application scenarios across multiple industries including government, energy, oil fields, and airport and subway systems.
eLTE is the first 100-Mb/s professional broadband solution based on LTE technology to address the demands of private networks in vertical industries. The fourth-generation (4G) wireless system combines carrier-grade resilience with features that can be set up, operated, and maintained with less effort than that required for traditional wireless solutions. With 20 MHz of bandwidth and 2x2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), eLTE can support downlink data rates to 100 Mb/s with uplink data rates hitting 50 Mb/s. Its coverage ranges to 100 km even in demanding environments, such as deserts and flood-prone areas.
eLTE also offers public-mobile-radio (PMR) functionality for tasks including push-to-video, real-time video surveillance, and video streaming. Because eLTE is fully scalable, it can provide security enhancements and emergency/rescue communication for government authorities and enterprises regardless of size or location.
Deploying the network in a rural area like Ozaworice will help to bring that community strong and stable Internet access. The base stations provided by Huawei can be easily installed onto a pole or wall, eliminating the need to build extensive telecom equipment rooms. Further reducing installation challenges and costs is the eCSN600 core network, which offers 40-Gb/s throughput while measuring just 14 U high.
