How Huawei is helping Africa get ready for 5G
Huawei’s 5G Power solution will enable African MNOs and towercos to meet the increased power requirements of 5G
Huawei have a full suite of services for towercos and MNOs, from energy solutions to small cells, digital indoor solutions and managed services. Huawei is of course also a world-leading 5G innovator, accelerating development of next generation mobile networks. While Lesotho has a small active 5G network, development of 5G in larger African countries has been slower, but Huawei expects 5G rollout in South Africa, Morocco and Egypt by 2021, plus significantly more 5G deployments by 2023. This interview covers Huawei’s expectations for 5G in Africa and how towercos and MNOs must optimise power management to accommodate the extra load.
