Huawei will provide infrastructure and technical support to Teletalk for deploying 5G network
State-owned telecom operator Teletalk has partnered with leading global ICT solution provider Huawei to roll out 5G in Bangladesh.
Huawei Bangladesh will provide infrastructure and technical support to Teletalk for deploying 5G network and to be launched on December 12, reads a press release.
Huawei is leading the 5G technology standard with superior chipset, algorithm, and products.
A signing ceremony between Teletalk and Huawei was held at the Teletalk office a few months back. Under this contract, Huawei is to provide the industry-leading and globally acclaimed technology to Teletalk for ensuring a seamless 5G experience.
Through pervasive R&D since 2012, Huawei developed highly efficient hardware and software algorithms to optimize TCO (Total cost of operation) for diversified application and deployment scenarios.
The unique values of Huawei ran products, namely AAU (Active Antenna Unit) will significantly improve the competitiveness of Teletalk in the 5G era.
Huawei’s 64T64R MIMO enabled AAU offers several industry-leading benefits that are highly suitable for a densely populated country like Bangladesh.
Chief among those values are – Lowest form factor and weight, high power efficiency, and low wind load.
In between, joint testing with Teletalk in several sites in Dhaka city revealed the exciting result of >1.5 Gbps peak throughput and 7~10 millisecond latency for a single user.
Bangladesh can utilize this speed in digitalizing the industries and bringing more value to individuals.
Kevin Xu, chief technical officer of Huawei Bangladesh said: “4G has changed lives; 5G will change the society. And we are happy to be a part of this key initiative towards that journey. We shall partner with Teletalk to build the necessary infrastructure for a superior 5G network. Initially we have been chosen to provide more than 65% of initial 5G sites. Huawei has been working in Bangladesh for Bangladesh to build a fully connected, intelligent nation for more than 21 years and we will responsibly continue this journey.”
Huawei has been investing in 5G R&D since 2009. Subsequently, in 2017 and 2018, Huawei invested almost $1.4 billion into 5G product development. The company carried out more than 5,000 5G tests in 2020 across a wide range of industries, including mining, manufacturing, and seaports, with about 1000 commercial contracts signed.
As of now, 700 telecom operators are working to establish 5G technology around the world. Huawei is providing technical support to 83 operators among the 184 who have successfully launched 5G already.
