China Unicom, Huawei deploy 1,000 5G Super Uplink sites

China Unicom Beijing and Huawei report they have deployed Super Uplink at more than 1,000 commercial sites in Beijing as part of their joint 5G Capital project launched in April 2020.

Chinese state-owned telecommunications operator tested 5G Super Uplink on its commercial networks in 2020. It then started to deploy the service at a smaller scale in May 2021.

Ma Hongbo, president of Huawei’s SingleRAN product line, said, “TDD + FDD networking will find its way into networks around the world, and 5G Super Uplink is a key example, showing that the collaboration between TDD and FDD is essential for the development of better 5G quality. Huawei is pleased to have helped China Unicom Beijing to deploy Super Uplink on such a scale, in more than a thousand locations, and will continue to support China Unicom Beijing in its vision of continuously building high quality 5G networks. These networks will serve as references. for all operators who wish to develop 5G. “

In a statement on its website, Huawei said that “The 5G Super Uplink was a key innovative step in the 5G Capital project and is expected to help China Unicom Beijing build high-quality 5G networks.”

 5G Super Uplink dramatically improves uplink capabilities by utilizing 3.5 GHz TDD and 2.1 GHz FDD coordination, high and low band complementation, time and frequency domain aggregation, and resource planning at the level of millisecond, meeting the high demands of services such as video download and HD live streaming.

“To prepare for the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, each site’s networks must be able to deliver ultimate experiences that remain constant, inside and out,” Fan Liqun, head of the 5G co-construction and sharing work team at China Unicom Beijing, said.

“5G Super Uplink is up to this task, and its large-scale commercial deployment at 1,000 of our sites is another major milestone in the innovation of the 5G Capital project,” he added.

China Unicom Beijing will continue to innovate with Huawei and apply the right 5G technologies in commercial markets. to better serve our customers and improve their experience.
