[Tunis, Tunisia, May 31, 2018] A test of ‘All Business Connected@LTE’ technologies, including 4T4R, Carrier Aggregation, and 256QAM, jointly performed by Tunisie Telecom and Huawei saw a single user peak throughput of 706.14 Mbps acheived on a commercial network - a record-breaking high for Tunisia. This outstanding performance reinforces Tunisie Telecom's resolution to build a large-scale 4T4R network with Huawei in 2018 to deliver an optimal LTE experience for all of their subscribers, as well as create the fastest network in the country.
Tunisie Telecom is dedicated to providing the country's fastest data rate and best user experience. Thanks to their efforts, the number of LTE subscribers in Tunisia continues to increase, and with the dataflow of usage (DOU) per user having reached 4GB, traffic volume is also expected to increase by 370% in 2020. Key technologies of ‘All Business Connected @LTE’ (including 4T4R, 3CC CA, and 256QAM), can help operators provide the fastest LTE user experience possible. 4T4R increases network capacity by up to 80% without adding extra spectrum or sites, greatly improving spectral efficiency. 256QAM is also a proven technology that can effectively increase peak data rate by 33%.
Fadhel Kraiem, CEO of Tunisie Telecom, said: "Tunisie Telecom is keen to invest in more innovative technologies to offer the best user experience. I am glad that this test is a huge success, achieving all expected results. Spectrum resources are fully utilized to ensure that our network is more efficient. In addition, large-scale 4T4R network deployment allows us to be fully prepared for an evolution towards a new 5G era. We will continue to partner with Huawei in pursuing innovation to provide subscribers with a superb experience in Tunisia."
"Huawei is committed to helping operators achieve business success by providing a diverse range of advanced solutions that can adapt to their strategies," commented Saeed XIA, General Manager of Huawei Tunisia. "Huawei 4T4R solution has been extensively deployed worldwide. We believe that this solution perfectly complements Tunisie Telecom's network development strategy and is an important tool to help maintain a leading competitive edge."
