True Launches a Large-scale Deployment of 4.5G Network Using Huawei 4T4R Solution

Thailand — Thai operator True has deployed a 4T4R commercial network using Huawei’s SingleRAN 4T4R technology. As an important element of 4.5G, the 4T4R service improves spectrum efficiency, doubles network capacity, and enhances cell-edge signals, which extends network coverage, True says. True’s deployment of 4T4R networks is currently under way. Over 6,300 4T4R sites have been deployed by end-June.

According to True data, compared to traditional 2T2R networks, the downlink throughput of 4T4R at cell edge with commercial devices has increased by over 38 percent, while the uplink throughput grew by 50 percent.
