Huawei launches eLTE SmartCampus solution for the enterprise
The Chinese vendor targets port management, mining and manufacturing companies
Chinese vendor Huawei has released its eLTE SmartCampus to target enterprises in the port management, mining, and manufacturing sectors.
Huawei’s wireless smart campus solution is designed to support automated production, intelligent logistics, and more efficient management.
The Chinese vendor also highlighted that companies willing to evolve towards Industry 4.0 needs to accelerate their digital transformation through the implementation of reliable communication networks that can support a full range of critical services throughout the production, manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, management, and dispatch stages of their workflows.
“Huawei’s eLTE SmartCampus applies 4.5G wireless communication technology to the construction of enterprise campus networks. It is designed to help enterprises of all shapes and sizes build an integrated smart network with industrial-grade reliability, which will enable them to evolve towards automated production, intelligent logistics, and more efficient management,” Peng Jianhua, President of Huawei’s Enterprise Wireless Domain, said.
Huawei also said that its new eLTE SmartCampus solution supports up to 200,000 narrowband IoT connections per square kilometer, with a total coverage of up to 10 kilometers. This enables the transmission of vast amounts of data that, through the power of big data analytics, can be used to inform the automation of production processes, the Asian firm added.
With Huawei’s eLTE SmartCampus solution, each cell on a wireless network can support 120 wireless connections. This helps ensure high-quality connections for vehicles running at speeds of up to 160 km/h, enabling functions like electric work orders, mobile scanning of QR codes, and vehicle information reporting.
Huawei also said that the new smart solution has been verified in commercial use in major ports and mining sites across China.
Prior to this release, Huawei launched its eLTE Broadband Trunking solution for the public safety domain. At this year’s Hannover MESSE expo, Huawei’s Enterprise Wireless group has also released the eLTE SmartGrid solution for electric companies.
