    Huawei designed these RF (radio frequency) units for base stations to be exactly 15kg, to cater for a network roll-out for Vodafone in Germany. Huawei said that if the unit had weighed any more than 15kg, more than one employee would be required to install it under Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) laws, and this would ultimately add to the cost of deploying the new network.
