Huawei has announced India’s first Artificial Intelligence (AI) based Massive MIMO optimization technology in the Vodafone Idea network.
AI enabled Massive MIMO enables Vodafone Idea to add automation capabilities to its network, greatly improving optimization efficiency, boosting cell capacity and enhancing end-user experience of the network.
Speaking at the occasion Vishant Vora, Chief Technology Officer, Vodafone Idea said, “We are consistently deploying futuristic, next generation technologies to enhance the capacity and efficiency of our network. Adding AI capabilities to India’s largest deployment of Massive MIMO for enhancing user experience is a further testament of our commitment to create a future-proof network for the digital era.”
Jay Chen, CEO, Huawei India said, “We are delighted to partner with Vodafone Idea in making them ready for the 5G-led future. The deployed solution will enable Vodafone Idea to enhance their pre-5G Massive MIMO network. Huawei remains committed to supporting Vodafone Idea to fulfil their ambitions to maintain and strengthen their network offering in the Indian telecoms industry.”
The Massive MIMO AI solution uses random forest algorithm for modelling and prediction, collecting and analyzing data to optimize MIMO performance.
Vodafone Idea has been consistently unlocking spectrum efficiencies and user experiences by applying a number of 5G ready technologies like Massive MIMO and CloudAIR Dynamic Sharing of Spectrum in 4G network. Today the Vodafone Idea network has India’s largest and world’s third largest Massive MIMO deployment.
