[Hannover and Essen, Germany, June 26, 2020] The winners of the iF Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award have been announced. Huawei’s BladeAAU Pro has won both prestigious design awards for its excellent design. It is the only base station product that has been celebrated with both awards, showing that Huawei’s industrial design and equipment engineering capabilities as well as the overall strengths of the products are recognized in the industry.
BladeAAU integrates active and passive modules into a single enclosure to ensure high integration while delivering powerful performance, enabling operators to deploy 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G technologies on a single pole. Since the launch of its first generation in 2019, it has become the first choice of global operators for building networks in unipolar scenarios.
Unveiled in October 2020, BladeAAU Pro is a next generation product in this series. It takes both integration and performance to new heights.
- Upgraded active antennas with increased channels from 32 to 64 to provide higher capacity.
- Improved passive antennas with further improved port specifications to enable all band deployments in the future.
- Improved performance but with the same dimensions, and support for separate and integrated installations to ensure flexibility to adapt to various scenarios.
The BladeAAU series has been put into large-scale commercial use in many countries. For example, he helped operators in Switzerland simplify site acquisition and rapidly deploy 5G networks. In China, it has helped operators extend wireless coverage and improve the 5G user experience by supporting increased mounting height.
As the judges commented, the Blade AAU Pro can be easily and flexibly installed and can be serviced with just one tool. In addition, the clear design impresses with a well-thought-out color palette.
Ma Hongbo, president of Huawei’s SingleRAN wireless networking product line, said, “Winning both the iF Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award shows that Huawei’s simplified design concept is recognized in the industry. It also reflects Huawei’s technical and technological design expertise. the innovation of base stations. Huawei will continue to innovate to enable operators to quickly and affordably deploy high-quality 5G networks.
