Huawei And China Mobile Build 5G Base Station On Mount Everest
China Mobile and Huawei have jointly taken 5G connectivity to a new height upon the completion of the world’s highest 5G base station on the altitude of 6500 at the summit of Mount Everest.
Huawei is a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices.
Together with the launch of the Gigabit optical fibre network at the attitude of 6,500 meters, Huawei enables China Mobile to run its dual Gigabit network on Mount Everest.
Huawei revealed on its website that the 5G network on Mount Everest will provide communication services for the 2020 Mount Everest re-measurement.
The new feat is significant as it marks the 60th anniversary of the first successful arrival at Mount Everest from the northern slope, and the 45th anniversary of China’s first official accurate measurement and announcement of Mount Everest.
The ground-breaking establishment on Mount Everest once again proves that 5G technology connect Mankind and the Earth harmoniously, Huawei insists.
Huawei says it has offered its end-to-end solutions in the construction of China Mobile’s Everest dual Gigabit network, where base stations were built in Mount Everest Base Camp at the attitude of 5,300 meters, the Transition Camp at 5,800 meters, and the Forward Camp at 6,500 meters.
“Huawei’s 5G AAU and SPN technologies are applied at these base stations, where network maintenance and optimization are done by a dozen of network specialists who station 24/7 in regions at altitudes of 5,300 meters and above to ensure smooth network operations,” the company said.
Huawei’s 5G AAU is highly integrated in a compact size, making it easy for deployment and installation.
It fits particularly well for infrastructure in extreme environment such as Mount Everest.
In this project, a network in the “stand alone plus non-stand alone” (SA+NSA) mode connects five 5G base stations, according to the technology giant.
Meanwhile, the 5G fast and huge-capacity connectivity is achieved by Huawei’s Massive MIMO technology supporting lightning speed and large bandwidth.
