Huawei releases IntelligentRAN Wireless Architecture

Huawei has unveiled IntelligentRAN , its new wireless network architecture This architecture is designed to help carriers build autonomous networks using service operation intelligence , experience optimization and simplified O & M .

Huawei ’ s Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Wireless Solutions , Gan Bin , explained how key technologies were incorporated into the architecture to support ADN over wireless networks .
“ Intelligence improves wireless networks greatly by supporting correlative data analysis and predictions to make decisions more adaptive ,” he said .
“ This is where IntelligentRAN comes in . It will enable networks to realize zero service waiting , consistent experience , zero network faults , and optimal experience and energy efficiency . Using Mobile Intelligent Engine ( MIE ), it will better co-ordinate data , models and decisions between base stations and networks , paving the way to wireless intelligence .”
5G has caused a huge increase in the number of personal , industry and home applications available in the wireless market . As these services increase , network performance requirements are similarly diversifying in terms of coverage , capacity and latency . to ensure optimal experiences . They now look to user-centric networks for resource configuration and simplified O & M to operate with optimal experience and energy efficiency .
Huawei ’ s new IntelligentRAN allows intelligent air interfaces to use key technologies such as smart grids , scheduling dictionaries and channel graphs . With these tools , they can intelligently configure air interface resources and achieve optimal user experience and capacity .
Service prediction with IntelligentRAN also guides non-real-time spectrum and channel selection on the network side and real-time symbol scheduling and transmit power configuration on the base station side . This significantly reduces energy consumption across the entire network .
In addition , IntelligentRAN enables intelligent SLA site planning , where parameters are dynamically configured , and models can be adjusted flexibly in response to service changes .
Networks with IntelligentRAN also benefit from intelligent O & M . They can self-learn the features of faults to improve fault detection accurately and root cause analysis . This replaces passive responses with proactive maintenance , bringing us a step closer to zero-fault wireless networks .
Intelligent minimum drive tests ( MDTs ) can also work with Massive MIMO to build an all-round high-precision map for network performance . This provides more accurate guidance for network planning , optimization and VIP user assurance .
IntelligentRAN uses collaborative power control to considerably reduce electromagnetic radiation intensity while ensuring optimal multi-band performance . This feature will help meet the power restriction requirements now found in some countries .
Gan explained how important Huawei believes this new architecture will be for sustainable development efforts .
“ IntelligentRAN enables autonomous networks ,” he said . “ It will empower industries , accelerate industry transformation , and promote sustainable development of the mobile industry and a digital world . We hope to work with operators and industry partners to better fulfil this goal .” p
Interference between cells , a long-standing problem in mobile networks , is also hindering operators ’ attempts to provide consistent experience . And , as traffic increases , so will energy consumption .
To cope with these challenges , operators are increasingly relying on intelligent wireless networks to quickly roll out services while using the best frequency band combination
