At the 13th Global Mobile Broadband Forum (MBBF) held in Bangkok, Thailand, Ma Hongbo, President of Huawei Wireless Network MAE Product Line, and Jiang Xudong, President of Huawei SingleRAN Product Line, released the wireless intelligent solutions (i-series solutions) based on the IntelligentRAN architecture. The i-series solutions are brand new intelligent solutions for multiple scenarios, including iFaultCare, iPowerStar, iHashBAND, and 5GtoX Suite. They inject intelligence into wireless network services, experience, and O&M, helping operators achieve intelligent service operations, intelligent network optimization, and intelligent and simplified O&M, and speeding up the evolution to wireless autonomous networks.
Ma Hongbo, President of Huawei Wireless Network MAE Product Line, said, “Since the launch of IntelligentRAN at MWC 2022, Huawei has had extensive communication with industry partners in the wireless intelligence field for joint innovation. The i-series solutions are a further interpretation and implementation of the IntelligentRAN concept. Huawei and operators will continue to innovate and create more scenario-specific wireless intelligent solutions, and work with industry partners to move towards a 5G intelligent world.”
The i-series solutions, based on the innovative IntelligentRAN architecture, are industry-leading technical solutions in network O&M, performance, energy saving, and service scenarios, helping operators reach L4 autonomous networks.
- The iFaultCare solution introduces the prediction capability to network O&M, helping operators shift from responsive O&M to proactive O&M. This solution focuses on network fault scenarios and predicts potential problems and risks through intelligent analysis and modeling, contributing to a 22% decrease in cell service interruption time.
- The iPowerStar solution uses intelligent algorithms to achieve “one site, one policy” by managing energy saving in time, space, frequency, and power domains while ensuring stable network performance. It also empowers multi-objective optimization for energy saving, helping operators build networks by striking the optimal balance between performance and energy consumption. Compared with traditional energy saving solutions, which provide around 15% energy savings, iPowerStar provides energy savings of 30%.
- The iHashBAND intelligent multi-band solution, against the backdrop of evolution to full-band 5G deployment, adheres to the concept of multi-band convergence on one network and incorporates the virtual grid-based network prediction capability for smart carrier selection and carrier aggregation. It unleashes the potential of multi-band networks and greatly improves uplink and downlink user experience in multi-service scenarios. Compared with traditional solutions, iHashBAND improves average user experience by 30% without changing spectrum resources or hardware.
- 5GtoX Suite solution integrates intelligence into toC, toH, and toB services, enabling more agile service rollouts and a more stable service experience. It extends simulation from traditional coverage-oriented single-dimensional simulation to SLA-oriented (latency, rate, and capacity) multi-dimensional simulation, substantially improving simulation planning accuracy and reducing planning costs by 80%.
Jiang Xudong, President of Huawei SingleRAN Product Line, said, “Huawei has been continuously investing in and exploring NE intelligence, and will continue to improve intelligence capabilities of base stations based on the IntelligentRAN architecture, paving the way for full-band 5G networks with optimal network performance and energy efficiency.”
The 13th Global Mobile Broadband Forum is hosted by Huawei, with support from our industry partners GSMA and GTI. It offers an opportunity for the mobile and adjacent vertical ecosystems to reconnect, rebuild, and reimagine a fully connected, intelligent world. Topics to be discussed range from harnessing the full potential of 5G, to advancing the mobile future, including the latest developments of 5G-Advanced, intelligence, and green 5G.
