VIVA Bahrain has implemented Huawei’s 9-sector solution using the triple-beam antenna technology. This solution delivers approximately 2.7 times the performance of a regular mobile tower and capacity to absorb traffic demand, offering higher quality telecommunications services whilst enhancing VIVA’s customers connectivity at events or locations where data demand is extremely high.
VIVA's first successful deployment of Huawei’s 9-sector solution was done during the ‘2016 F1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix’ race, where VIVA subscribers enjoyed connectivity to the Kingdom’s fastest and widest mobile network. This was the first stage of a full roll out planned of this technology in different locations across Bahrain where installation of new tower sites has limitations.
The 9-sector solution, using the industry-leading triple-beam antenna technology, improves the network's capacity to 2.2~2.7 times of the original 3-sector site and capability of absorbing traffic, achieves excellent KPI performance, and creates more economic benefits for operators.
