Etisalat Misr and Huawei have announced to complete the world's first live traffic application of the microwave solution "super dual band" with throughput more than 6Gbps in mobile backhaul in Alex region, Egypt.

Microwave transmission, a key solution on mobile backhaul networks throughout the years, struggles to meet the need for multi-Giga bandwidth at long distances. Etisalat Misr with Huawei Super Dual Band microwave solution have achieved 6.19Gbps over a relatively long distance (3.37km) link in Alex region, applying state-of-the-art features (EPLA, AM and QoS) that stretch the benefits from the E-band equipment.

"The growing capacity requirements for 3G and soon the LTE services raise high requirement for mobile backhaul solution in Egypt; we require innovative solutions on wireless backhaul technologies. The combination of E-Band and traditional microwave frequency spectrum is one of the good directions," said Khalid Murshed, CTO of Etisalat Misr.

"Huawei has started microwave cooperation with the Etisalat Misr since 2006, and we are honored to be Etisalat Misr's microwave transmission partner," said Alex Xu, Huawei North African vice president. Etisalat Misr and Huawei will jointly focus on potential microwave innovation technology looking forward to LTE. Xu added, "We think this new wireless transmission solution will highly improve the customer experience in the mobile broadband service."
