Huawei has announced a new generation of a 5G-oriented base station at the 2017 Global Mobile Broadband Forum in London for network deployment in multi-band, multi-RAT, and multi-service scenarios in the future.

This base station features a new generation of high-capacity BBU5900, multi-band RRU, large-bandwidth and high-power C-band Massive MIMO AAU, and high-power cabinets. 

Huawei base station has an antenna "1 + 1", with one multi-band antenna or AAU covering Sub2.6G and the other covering Massive MIMO; RF "2 in 1". A single RF module supports high-power 4T4R on both 1.8 and 2.1GHz bands; BBU baseband box "6 in 1", with 6 modes (GSM, UMTS, LTE FDD, LTE TDD, NB-IoT, 5G NR) in 1 box.

The transmission capacity of the new BBU can reach 50Gbps, to meet the co-site deployment requirements of multiple bands, multiple modes, and large-bandwidth Massive MIMO. A series of multi-antenna RF modules support 4T4R, 8T8R, and 64T64R, to guarantee the ultra-speed service experience in the 5G era.

The higher-power cabinet will work with the new BBU to accommodate larger-capacity baseband and control boards in the future and support evolution towards 5G.
