The Huawei Products and Solutions Launch was recently held in London. During the event, Huawei launched its RuralStar Pro solution. This solution integrates baseband, radio frequency (RF), and wireless backhaul functions into one base station, significantly reducing site deployment costs. RuralStar Pro makes it possible to provide voice and mobile broadband services to remote villages with a population smaller than 500.
According to a GSMA report, nearly 750 million people worldwide still have no mobile network coverage, while 3.5 billion people don’t have Internet access. The majority of these people live in remote areas with limited access to networks and electricity, and where it is expensive to build infrastructure. Traditional solutions need 8 to 10 years to recover their costs, so telecom operators are unwilling to roll out networks in remote areas.
Innovation never stops. The RuralStar Pro solution Huawei launched at the event is another example of the company’s commitment to technological breakthroughs. Through the use of high-integration chips, this “all-in-one” solution integrates baseband, RF, and wireless backhaul functions into one, reducing site dependence on infrastructure. RuralStar Pro requires only two solar panels to power the entire site, significantly reducing power consumption and lowering the weight of the base station to nearly 550 kilograms. The civil engineering work required is also reduced, ensuring simplified site delivery.
These new features allow for more simplified network equipment and decreased infrastructure costs, significantly reducing the cost of RuralStar Pro. The return on investment (ROI) period for operators also remains within 3–5 years, while providing mobile broadband services to rural areas with a population smaller than 500. RuralStar Pro moves a further step towards improving the lives of people in remote areas by enabling remote education, inclusive finance, telemedicine, and other digital social services.
“Due to low ROI in the rural network market, operators and equipment vendors have been very cautious with their investments”, said Hao Yingtao, President of the Wireless Site Domain of Huawei’s Wireless Network Product Line. “Huawei is committed to bridging the digital divide and promoting digital inclusiveness, and has never stopped investing in connecting the unconnected.”
“Through technological innovation, RuralStar Pro can effectively reduce power consumption, simplify sites, and reduce network construction costs. It will play a huge role in improving the accessibility of rural networks. Huawei will continue innovating and doing its utmost to bring digital to every corner around the world.”
Huawei has been committed to bringing digital to every person, home and organization for an intelligent world. In 2017, Huawei launched RuralStar, its innovative rural network solution. This solution transforms microwave or satellite transmissions used in traditional rural network solutions into relay remote node (RRN) wireless backhaul, towers into simple poles, and diesel generators into clean, green solar energy. These transformations reduce network deployment costs by more than 50%. RuralStar makes it possible for operators to profit from rural networks that serve remote areas with a population of over 1,000. This greatly encourages operators to tap into the rural network market.
At the Mobile World Congress 2019, Huawei launched RuralStar Lite, yet another innovative rural network solution. Fitted with four solar panels, RuralStar Lite greatly reduces power consumption. The solution allows all equipment to be installed on a pole, eliminating the need to build fences or install cabinets. The combination of these advantages significantly reduces site deployment costs. In villages with a population of 500 to 1,000 people, RuralStar Lite keeps operators’ ROI period within 3–5 years.
Huawei’s three rural network solutions, RuralStar, RuralStar Lite, and RuralStar Pro, guarantee profitable deployment in different rural network scenarios. Since 2017, when the first RuralStar solution was launched, the RuralStar series has been deployed in over 50 countries, providing connectivity to more than 40 million people worldwide.
LG NAMED GM INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR

Motorola Software Supports Coronavirus Patient Recovery in Brazil
As coronavirus continues to impact communities around the world, many healthcare professionals seek innovative ways to care for those infected. When patients do recover enough from COVID-19 to be discharged from the hospital, they often face a long and challenging road to wellness. Dealing with lingering symptoms, uncertainty about future immunity, and wildly disparate living situations, recovering patients need ways to be monitored and supported. Custom-designed technology can help.
To assist in the recovery phase of coronavirus, Motorola teams quickly developed a software solution to monitor COVID-19 patients after they leave the Unicamp Hospital de Clínicas in Campinas, Brazil.
Upon discharge from the hospital, the patient receives a card with a QR Code and the registration number of the doctor responsible for the remote monitoring. When scanned, the code opens a customized browser in the patient’s smartphone—meaning no special app needs to be installed.
For 14 days, the patient will answer five simple questions about their state of health, recording symptoms and biometrics such as temperature, amount of coughing, tiredness, and shortness of breath during the previous 24 hours. After the patient completes the questionnaire, their information is logged into the hospital system. If any coronavirus symptoms are detected or if there are any concerns, the data is sent directly to the doctors, who will get in touch with the patient for further instructions.
“Since this is a new disease, many people feel insecure about the possibility of their condition getting worse,” said Plínio Trabasso, the epidemiologist responsible for the COVID-19 monitoring system at the Unicamp HC. “Therefore, having a doctor monitor their progress – even at a distance – and having an open channel to the hospital without the patient having to leave home increases their feeling and their degree of safety.”
Motorola COVID-19 patient recovery software
The measure offers the patient greater convenience and helps promote social isolation to reduce the potential for contagion in the community.
Since the implementation of the solution, monitoring has become faster and more efficient. Before deploying the new software, a hospital attendant had to call each one of the patients every day to ask the basic questions and then send responses along to the doctor. Now, the doctor receives their patients’ questionnaires in real time and hospital attendants do not need to contact patients daily.
“As soon as the solution is fully implemented and working perfectly, it may be extended to other public hospitals and may even be used to monitor patients with different diseases,” said Edilson Silva, Software Development manager in Motorola’s “Dogfooding” team.
Edilson’s team is responsible for testing Motorola’s innovations amongst employee and volunteer populations—getting real-world feedback to inform their work. They are skilled at iterating and customizing new solutions to meet customer needs. The Dogfooding team’s approach to problem solving is readily applicable to the complex and ever-evolving challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Motorola’s solution to monitoring recovering COVID-19 patients at home is just one example of how the company is responding to global needs during the coronavirus pandemic. While this donation is only in use in Brazil, the software will continue to be evaluated, improved, and hopefully implemented in other public hospitals to support the efforts of healthcare providers.
