Called Easy MacroTM, the solution improves network capacity and provides an improved user experience to subscribers.

Chinese telecom solutions provider Huawei, together with AIS, a Thailand-based mobile operator, has announced the deployment of the Huawei Active Antenna Unit (AAU)-based Easy MacroTM solution in Thailand.

The solution will be deployed across the AIS network, with an aim to build the best Mobile Broadband (MBB) network in Thailand and enhance user experiences.

Over the last few years, MBB has developed rapidly in Thailand, mainly driven by the high penetration of smartphones and tablets. Aiming to achieve rapid expansion of the existing network, Easy MacroTM improves network capacity and provides an improved user experience to subscribers.

Easy MacroTM simultaneously supports both Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) and Long-Term Evolution (LTE) technologies on multi bands. It is small in size, but has macro site output power capabilities - all these matched the requirements of AIS, said Huawei in its media statement.

An unnamed executive from AIS said, "Deploying Huawei Easy MacroTM solution across our network in the major cities will support our capacity needs as we bring Mobile Broadband to the people of Thailand. We are delighted to work with Huawei, one of our main suppliers. Their commitment to developing leading technologies and focusing on innovation supports us to meet our goals."

To date, Huawei AAU solutions have been deployed across more than 37 worldwide commercial networks including, China, Peru, Egypt and countries in Europe.
