[Barcelona, Spain, February 26, 2019] Huawei deployed the 5G LampSite Pro and the latest commercial 5G CPE Pro to provide 5G coverage in the Huawei exhibition hall during Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019. 5G LampSite Pro was used to form the 5G Digital Indoor System (DIS) for the demonstration. The live results showed a peak downlink rate of above 1 Gbit/s on the C band, 100 MHz bandwidth, and 4T4R technology. This is the first time that Huawei has deployed and demonstrated the 5G DIS indoor coverage network with commercial 5G terminals during MWC, which means that 5G indoor coverage is entering the commercial fast lane.

Operators generally believe that airports, railway stations, stadiums, shopping malls, subways, and campuses are key 5G scenarios. With the deployment of 5G LampSite Pro in multiple scenarios, such as Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station in China, its excellent 5G experience has been widely recognized by operators and has also enhanced the confidence in deploying 5G digital indoor coverage networks. Huawei took the lead in completing the third phase of 5G tests organized by the IMT2020 (5G) Promotion Group in China last year and started deployment in multiple scenarios. The commercial progress of Huawei 5G LampSite Pro is always in the leading position in the industry. This time, Huawei brought 5G LampSite Pro to MWC 2019, aiming to enable global carriers and partners to experience the most-advanced 5G DIS coverage network.
The 5G CPE Pro used by the demonstration is a commercial terminal officially released by Huawei Consumer BG at MWC 2019. Users do not need to pull network cables to enjoy wireless broadband with ultra-optical fiber rates. Huawei 5G CPE Pro provides a test rate of up to 3.2 Gbit/s, which can be used to download a 1 gigabit ultra-HD movie in three seconds. In addition, users can easily add smart products that support the Huawei HiLink protocol to the network to enjoy smart home life. Consumers will be provided with new broadband experience in various scenarios, such as home, office, and enterprise private line.

“Huawei continues to invest in 5G technologies and provides the best products and solutions to help operators build 5G networks quickly and efficiently,” said Ritchie Peng, President of Huawei Digital Indoor System. “Huawei 5G LampSite Pro is the leading 5G indoor coverage product in the commercial process and has been deployed in multiple scenarios in China. During MWC 2019, Huawei uses the latest 5G CPE Pro terminal to provide a rate of more than 1 Gbit/s. This proves that Huawei’s E2E 5G indoor coverage network has been put into commercial use.”
MWC 2019 runs from February 25 to February 28 in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei showcases its products and solutions at booth 1H50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1, booth 3I30 in Hall 3, the Innovation City zone in Hall 4, and booths 7C21 and 7C31 in Hall 7.
