Huawei’s Solution & Retelit’s Benefits
High Performance
In contrast with most conventional requirements,
Retelit uniquely required the core network to
control the QoS profile for each end user.
Normally this would have dictated additional
research, design and development as well as
added cost.
Fortunately for the operator, Huawei’s built-in
Authentication, Authorization, & Accounting
(AAA), WASN and BOSS work with standard
protocols to permit highly flexible authentication
and accounting methods, coordinating with the
existing Retelit software system to provide more
available solutions for the operator.
Huawei’s, DBS3900 now provides Retelit with
the highest PAE in the industry, with multicarrier
and 4T/4R. Throughput and coverage fully meet
Retelit’s requirements and deliver a better end-
user experience.
