LTE: Huawei announced New MSA technology to improve performance in almost 30% for LTE Advanced.
Huawei has announced a new proposal for the LTE-Advanced Multi-Stream Aggregation (MSA) technology standard for increase in data rates at the cell's edge. According to the company, a key component of Huawei's "No-Edge Networks" concept, MSA technology coordinates macro cells to improve user data rates at the cell's edge and also between heterogeneous networking scenarios to improve peak rates and simplify mobile management to ensure a consistent user experience.
The concept behind Huawei's MSA technology is that the user is always able to receive downlink data and aggregate downlink data streams from a cell or cell group with the best signal quality. A similar method applies to uplink data, where the user always transmits uplink data to a cell or cell group with the best signal quality. The uplink data streams are aggregated on the network side.
Company further outlines that MSA technology is especially suitable for macro-micro HetNets and reduces the number of handovers. It's expects MSA technology to improve system performance at the cell's edge by almost 30%.
