Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, hosted a three-day LTE Technology Road Show that ended on September 3. Visitors were able to tour the Huawei LTE truck and attend presentations to garner a greater awareness of LTE technology. Huawei’s LTE Road Show in the Philippines was part of a six-city Asia-Pacific tour that is scheduled to go through the end of the year.
LTE, or Long-Term Evolution, describes the evolution of mobile technology that delivers to users the benefits of faster data speeds and new services by creating a new radio access technology that is optimized for IP-based traffic. In addition it offers operators a simple upgrade path from 2G and 3G networks. The Huawei LTE Road Show helped the Philippines’ mobile industry get better acquainted with Huawei’s LTE technology and gain a better understanding of its potential and its business advantages.
Visitors to Huawei’s LTE Technology Road Show had the opportunity to experience the latest mobile broadband solutions offered by Huawei through live demos, interactive gaming, high-definition (HD) video streaming, and a showcase of Huawei smartphones powered by Android. Huawei experts also conducted interactive technical workshops onsite that outlined the latest technology updates, showcased cutting-edge products and services, and explained upcoming market trends in mobile broadband solutions.
Yang Hua, President of Huawei Technologies Philippines, said, “LTE has been described as a ‘next-generation, beyond 3G’ technology. It effectively creates a new radio access technology that’s optimized for IP-based traffic and offers operators a simple upgrade path from 3G networks. As mobile technology continues to evolve, users will benefit from faster data speeds and new services.
“By bringing Huawei’s LTE Technology Road Show to the Philippines, we were able to showcase Huawei’s involvement in the evolutionary development of mobile technology, and to give visitors a way to experience the possibilities that LTE technology can bring, such as interactive gaming and HD video streaming on the go.”
