Telenor Selects Huawei for LTE-Ready Microwave Backhaul

Huawei and Telenor Group have entered into a three-year strategic cooperation framework contract for IP microwave technologies. Under the contract, Huawei’s second-generation E-band and full outdoor (FO) microwave will be widely deployed.

After completing a base station IP-based revamp, Telenor Group plans to deploy LTE networks on a large scale, and will use Huawei’s end-to-end IP microwave solution for LTE backhaul. The solution will enable high bandwidth, smooth evolution, quick deployment and easy management for LTE backhaul networks. Huawei’s microwave solution is built on a universal IP platform that includes the RTN 900 series, a flexible microwave platform, RTN 310, a zero-footprint all-outdoor microwave solution, and RTN 380, a second-generation carrier-grade E-band all-outdoor microwave solution.

“Huawei has forged a long-term strategic partnership with Telenor in the microwave field. We will continue to focus on customer needs and innovate in microwave solutions, helping our customers gain commercial success in the mobile broadband field,” said Jack Wang, president of Huawei transport network product line, in a press release.
