Huawei has launched an LTE lab in Tokyo that will serve as an incubator for LTE technologies and a training facility for the implementation and commercialization of the next-generation wireless technology. The centre will allow the Chinese vendor to offer Japanese mobile operators state-of-the-art testing, product innovation and training facilities for next-generation solutions.

Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today announced that it has launched a Long Term Evolution (LTE) lab in Tokyo, Japan. The lab will both serve as an incubator for LTE technologies and a training facility for the implementation and commercialization of the next-generation wireless technology. Huawei's research and development teams will also be able to work with Japanese operators to conduct rigorous tests on LTE systems before delivery.

Operators and industry partners in Japan are now further able to deepen their understanding of LTE and experience the potential of Huawei's latest LTE and System Architecture Evolution (SAE) solutions through the innovation and technology showcase at the LTE lab in Japan.

Yan Lida, Representative and Managing Director of Huawei Japan said: "We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers in Japan the latest in LTE testing technology, and at greater convenience, as they partner with Huawei to ready their networks for commercial deployment of LTE solutions. By providing the best environment for innovation and training, we hope that we can contribute to our Japanese customers' R&D efforts in this exciting field, and ultimately, to their continued business success."

The facility offers a full suite of the latest testing facilities and a real-world environment in which tests such as peak throughput, latency, multi-users, quality of service (QoS), handover, Element-level Management System (EMS) operation and Self-Organizing Network (SON) can be conducted. The lab's downlink data rate at application layer can reach 140 Mbps through a single remote radio unit (RRU) with 20 Mhz bandwidth. It is also equipped with Huawei's fourth-generation DBS3900 base station and the latest versions of commercial LTE software and test terminals.
