ZTE MF287 LTE Router Available as 3Neo for 3 Austria

The Austrian network operator 3 has once again added a new 4G LTE router to its product range: the 3neo by the Chinese manufacturer ZTE. At first glance, the design of the router looks unusual and definitely not like a usual wireless router. Technically speaking, the 3neo router comes from the factory model ZTE MF287, which has an LTE Cat6 modem for up to 300 MBit/s in the downlink and up to 50 MBit/s in the uplink. As a special feature, there is an integrated rechargeable battery, so you can use the 3neo as mobile router when on the go.

The design of the 3neo is unusual, but also has the connections to be found at the back, like the ZTE MF286 and Huawei E5186. On the side there is a LED light bar for the status display and on the top there is a LED light ring for the display of the network mode. Both the LTE antennas and the WLAN antennas are permanently integrated in the device and are not visible from the outside.

 

The modem of the 3neo can use LTE of category 6 and reaches up to 300 MBit/s in the downlink and up to 50 MBit/s in the uplink. Of course the router is also downwards compatible with the older 3G/UMTS technology, and up to 42.2 MBit/s in the downlink is possible. If desired, the mobile radio reception can be improved by an external LTE antenna, the required connections are hidden under a cover on the back.

In addition to the two connectors for an external antenna, there are also four RJ-45 Gigabit LAN connections as well as an RJ-11 telephone connection. Also the connection for the power supply is on the back, the plug for 12V/5A is also suitable for operation on an external battery/Powerbank, but unfortunately no MicroUSB connection for power supply has been installed. The built-in rechargeable battery in the 3neo / ZTE MF287 has a capacity of 3020 mAh and is supposed to allow an operating time of up to 4 hours without power supply.

ZTE MF287 3neo (2)

The WLAN in the 3neo runs on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, the router can supply up to 64 devices at the same time. As a convenience function, for example, a guest network function as well as a WLAN timer is available. The connection is to be set up quickly thanks to QR code and “3Home” app for the smartphone without complicated password input.

 

Availability

The 3neo LTE router is now available in Austria. However, the 3neo LTE router has a netlock, so it can only be used with SIM cards from 3 Austria. If you want the unlocked 3neo, you may check www.4gltemall.com and the unlocked version of 3neo would be available in future time.

Huawei Presents B618 LTE Cat11 Router

The fourth mobile LTE radio generation is becoming more and more powerful, with LTE Advanced Pro and 4.5G, respectively, currently experiencing a new leap in speed. Some 4G smartphones and mobile hotspots already support LTE category 11 or higher, while LTE Cat6 with 300 MBit/s in LTE router models was the highest of the feelings. A few weeks ago, Huawei presents a new 4G LTE Router, the model number is Huawei B618, which supports LTE of category 11 with up to 600 MBit/s in the downlink and 50 MBit/s in the uplink.

Huawei B618 B618S B618s-22d (1)

Huawei B618 Appearance

 

The Huawei B618 router visually resembles the design of the Huawei E5180 and can therefore be designated as its successor. The device is square and quite “high” built, on the front there are various LEDs as well as a WPS button. On the back there is a power button, two RJ-45 Gigabit LAN ports (one of which can also function as a WAN port), as well as a USB 2.0 port. There is also an RJ-11 connection for an analog telephone or fax machine as well as the connection for the external power supply. Under one cover are two connectors for an external antenna. There is no battery for mobile use.

Huawei B618 B618S B618s-22d (2)

Huawei B618 Technical Specifications

The modem in the Huawei B618 works with LTE Cat11 and achieves data rates of up to 600 MBit/s in the downlink as well as 50 MBit/s in the uplink. Which LTE Advanced Pro / 4.5G features are supported exactly is still unknown, but in any case, Triple Carrier Aggregation is on board. This allows the Huawei B618 to bundle three different frequency ranges with a maximum of 20 MHz each. To get to 600 MBit/s is enough but not the same, as the 256QAM modulation controls the modem in the downlink. Alternatively, the support for 4 × 4 MIMO would be conceivable whether the B618 can do this, but is currently not clearly identified.

 

The WLAN module allows connection to up to 64 devices at the same time in the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz band. The maximum data rate is 867 Mbps (802.11 ac), the WLAN antennas are fixed in the Huawei B618 and cannot be exchanged.

 Huawei B618 B618S B618s-22d (3)

Until now, the Huawei B618 only appears in Poland at Play (February 2017), where it is marketed in conjunction with the “4G LTE ULTRA” offer. As mobile radio networks continue to grow, however, it is likely that the Huawei B618 LTE router will also find their way to other countries and to other providers, which is often the case with Huawei LTE router models, however, user should pay close attention to the supported features and frequency bands, as Huawei can often optimize the routers for the respective provider and remove individual functions such as the telephone function. The B618 router available model number Huawei B618s-22d in Poland at Play seems to be unbranded and it may be suitable for the other market in Europe as it supports all important LTE band 1, 3, 7, 8, 20.

 

Telekom Speed Stick V LTE Stick

Solider successor of the Speed Stick III

 

Now from an unspecified reason, the Telekom changes the model name with each generation between the two manufacturers Huawei and Alcatel. The first Speed Stick came from Huawei, later model from Alcatel, so now Huawei was on train again. In any case, the Speed Stick IV has not been a really big hit. The Speed Stick III was the best model in the range, now the Speed stick V dominates. The former is for detached in the shop and will no longer be available.

 

first impression

First, it is noticeable that Huawei continues to focus on shrinkage rate. The Speed Stick V is 4 millimeters smaller than Version III and with only 24 grams of even 25 percent lighter. And also the height has been reduced by the same length. Here Huawei has unfortunately saved considerably on material.

 

 

 

Technical Data

 

Under the Telekom logo hides the Huawei model with the serial identifier E3372, specifically E3372s-153. However, the LTE stick is not compatible with the device category 6 (CAT6).  The Hisilicon chip allows for connections up to 150 Mbps download rate on category 4 (CAT4).  If with the LTE category 6, the life cycle of the stick back should be far more than 1 year. Thus it can be assumed that there will be an extra Surfstick for LTE-Advanced. Another positive feature relates to the network compatibility. The Speed Stick V supports LTE on the frequencies 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. If 4G network is unavailable, it is possible to switch to GPRS, EDGE, UMTS or HSPA. This is done as always automatically and is based on the next best alternative available locally. In this regard, there are no changes to the Speed Stick III.

 

As usual, Huawei E3372 is also possible to be used as storage, if a microSD is implemented in the slot. The card may be up to 32 GB. The customer can switch an external antenna for reception optimization. And there are 2 CRC-9 ports ready on the side. And the SIM card is on the standard format (2FF). So if you have a micro SIM, it requires an adapter. And there is not SIM lock as usual.

 

 

Availability

The Speed Stick V is available at online store www.4gltemall.com. With the Speed Stick V, user can get good network support as a successor of Speed Stick 3. In our opinion, this is currently one of the best sticks on the market.

Netgear Presents Nighthawk M1 Gigabit LTE Mobile Router

Netgear introduced the Nighthawk M1 LTE Hotspot –the world’s first Gigabit LTE router a few days ago. The Netgear M1 with model number MR1100 has a Qualcomm modem with LTE Category 16  and reaches speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s in the downlink under correspondingly developed mobile radio networks. Up to 150 MBit/s can be achieved in the uplink. Also the other technology of the M1 hotspot is very up-to-date, for example, there is a Gigabit RJ-45 LAN port, dual band WLAN-ac and a removable battery. The Nighthawk M1 is currently available only in Australia by Telstra.

Netgear Nighthawk M1 MR1100

Netgear Nighthawk M1

The Netgear Nighthawk M1 MR1100 differs significantly from the other Netgear LTE Hotspots in the “AirCard” series. The Nighthawk M1 router is in square shape, about 10cm wide, 2cm high and 240g heavy and offers in the center a 2.4 inch round color display. The core feature is Qualcomm’s modem, which supports 4.5G or LTE Advanced Pro with LTE Cat16 (up to 1 Gbit/s downlink and 150 Mbit/s uplink). These high speeds are supported by the 4 × 4 MIMO, 4-Band Carrier Aggregation technologies and 256QAM modulation, but the mobile network must support these features in order to reach the maximum bandwidth. The hotspot of course also works in mobile networks using, for example, only 2 × 2 MIMO and 64QAM.

Netgear Nighthawk M1 MR1100 4GX Gigabit LTE Mobile Router

Technical features

The connection from Nighthawk M1 to the terminals is optionally via USB, LAN or WLAN. For the USB connection, you can use the supplied USB Type C charging cable, and for the data connection, the USB type C connector is used, not the full-size USB connection (the latter is only for the Powerbank function). Alternatively, the RJ-45 Gigabit LAN connection can also be used for the internet connection. Most users will probably use the WLAN, and up to 20 devices can be connected to the router at the same time. The WLAN works in dual-band operation on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz on request, WLAN-ac is of course supported. In addition, Netgear Nighthawk M1 has again integrated the “WiFi Offload” feature, which can be used as an Internet access (also known as WLAN extender/WLAN repeater).

Netgear Nighthawk M1 MR1100 4GX Gigabit LTE Mobile Router

The Netgear Nighthawk M1 Hotspot has a 5040 mAh battery and supports the Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0 technology. With the help of a QC 2.0 capable power supply, you can charge the battery up to 75% faster than with a regular power supply according to Netgear. The operating time has been further improved by the strong battery compared to the predecessor AirCard 810, with one battery charge, the Nighthawk M1 can keep working for a full day (around 24 hours).

 

Netgear Nighthawk M1 MR1100 4GX Gigabit LTE Mobile Router

Unfortunately, the Netgear Nighthawk M1 LTE mobile router is not compatible with the Netgear DC112A docking station, although it is not available for so long. With the DC112A, one can connect Netgear LTE hotspots such as AC785, AC790 or AC810 and thus turn into a full-fledged stationary LTE router. After all, the Nighthawk M1 with the integrated RJ-45 LAN port offers an alternative and is also suitable for stationary use.

Availability

Currently, the Netgear MR1100 Nighthawk M1 Hotspot is only available in Australia with the local mobile network operator Telstra. According to the information from somebody who was able to watch the Nighthawk M1 at the CES in Las Vegas, the Netgear M1 Gigabit mobile router would be available for more carriers in Europe.

Netgear Nighthawk M1 MR1100 4GX Gigabit LTE Mobile Router

 

Since many carriers over the world haven’t provided the 1 Gbit/s on all networks, the full LTE Cat16 performance of the Netgear Nighthawk M1 will not be available for the time being. Even though, considering the strong battery as well as the RJ-45 LAN connection, user can benefit even in slow mobile radio networks!

 

Huawei E5785 LTE Cat6 Hotspot Released

We had introduced the four recommended 4G LTE Cat6 mobile hotspots previous, here now a new mobile hotspot with LTE cat6 (downlink speed up to 300Mbps) released by Huawei. If you are looking for a mobile LTE Hotspot with LTE Cat6, you get a new option. The manufacturer Huawei offers the device named Huawei E5785. The LTE router with battery is technically strongly related to the predecessor model Huawei E5786, but offers a replaceable battery. In the download the E5785 MiFi reaches up to 300 MBit/s, in the upload up to 50 MBit/s.

Huawei E5785

The Huawei E5785 is available in black and white and has a small display on the front, which displays status information such as the reception and the data volume consumed, but the display cannot be operated. We also introduced the predecessor sister model Huawei E5787 mobile WiFi, which is still the only router in the Huawei range that has a touchscreen display. The battery of the Huawei E5785 offers a capacity of 3,000 mAh and can easily be changed by the user. According to the manufacturer, approximately 12 hours of operating time are possible with a full battery charge.

Huawei E5785 (3)

The Huawei E5785 provides a micro USB port for charging and data transfer. In addition, there are two connections for an external LTE antenna(Check Huawei E5785 external 4G antenna). The WLAN module works on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, up to 16 devices can be connected to the hotspot at the same time. Whether a WLAN Extender function was installed, is not known yet. The Huawei E5785 MiFi is operated either via a browser web interface or via an app from Android and iOS devices. Some basic settings can also be selected directly on the device, using both the menu button and the power button directly on the E5785.

 

Huawei E5785 (1)

Availability of the Huawei E5785

So far, the Huawei E5785 LTE Cat6 Hotspot seems to be available in Europe only in Poland, with the providers Play and T-Mobile. The exact model number for the Polish market is E5785Lh-22c; the Huawei E5785 is also easily usable in other European countries due to the support for LTE 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz (band 20, 3, 7). However, you should be careful with other E5785 model numbers in Asia and the Middle East, which may support other frequency ranges. We will update more information about the Huawei E5785 later.

Huawei B310 4G LTE Router Review

Every year, Huawei would present some new 4G Router to meet the market demand. Now we have the new 4G router B310 and we will have a review about this new router in the article.

With the Huawei B310 Router, you can share your data plan using Wi-Fi or Ethernet. And it has other functions which are very useful for many people, we will introduce the features in this review.

Design

Here we can find the LTE CPE B310 that has a very simple design, so it is pleasant to use with the furniture at home, and it occupies very little space. The equipment material is totally plastic like any other router or similar devices such as Huawei B593 and Huawei B890 Router.

 

HUAWEI B310 4G Router wifi (1)

On its front, we find four illuminated icons that indicate the status of the router. The first one (from left to right) indicates that the B310 router is power on, the second shows the status of the connected network (3G, 4G … etc) using colors, the third indicates the status of the Wi-Fi network, the forth indicates the status of the Ethernet connector and finally we have the operator’s signal bars.

 

At the top we find the power and WPS buttons, the latter is to allow compatible devices to connect to the Wi-Fi network without entering the password.

 

At the back we will find the two external antennas, below we will see the current connector, the Ethernet port and a telephone line connector. We also see a cover, which when removed will allow us to insert our SIM card (mini SIM format) at the side.

 

HUAWEI B310 4G Router wifi (5)

Ethernet / LAN / WAN

The main function you will find on this router is precisely the ability to share your 4G, 3G or 2G data connection via Ethernet or WiFi with many connected users. The WiFi range could cover around 200 meters. The connection is super easy, just connect the modem of your internet provider via Ethernet cable to the Huawei B310 and configure it according to the type of connection that your provider uses.

As an additional feature, the router will also offer you the possibility of cloning a MAC address, if necessary.

HUAWEI B310 4G Router wifi (7)

 

WiFi

Per my personal experience, I usually have to use Wi-Fi extenders at my home, but with the Huawei B310 Router, it was unnecessary to have the extender, so the WiFi coverage from B310 CPE is really trustful. Also, the speed I had turned out to be very good and with a low ping when connecting.

In terms of configurations, the B310 router is capable of broadcasting up to 4 Wi-Fi networks and each can adjust the frequency channel manually, having channels 1 through 11.

HUAWEI B310 4G Router wifi (3)

As for security, you can decide whether to leave the name of your Wi-Fi network visible or not, in addition to being able to select a WEP, WPA2-PSK or WPA/WPA2-PSK password. If you want even more security, you can filter up to 10 quotas using the MAC address of each device.

 

Security

The Huawei B310 router turned out to be pretty perfect, in fact I thought it was something simpler, but I was very wrong. Here we can configure a firewall, filter by MAC and IP address, even virtual servers to protect our devices.

You can also open ports easily, apply DMZ configurations, enable UPnP, adjust NAT, filter by domain names or apply Dynamic DNS.

HUAWEI B310 4G Router wifi (6)

Phone Function

Something that totally differentiates from the other 4G routers is the possibility of being able to connect a fixed telephone and make & receive calls using the mobile network of your operator.

You pick up the handset and the Huawei B310 router itself will tone your fixed network phone, being ready to call any phone number, as long as your mobile operator allows it. It’s as if you were making a call from a cell phone, but here you do it from a landline. You can also receive calls in it, and if the landline has a viewfinder, you can see the number of the person who is calling the number assigned to you by your mobile operator.

HUAWEI B310 4G Router wifi (2)

This function proves to be quite useful for those who want to have internet and telephone in a single device. With the Huawei B310, you will have Wi-Fi internet and fixed network telephone to call and receive calls.

Conclusion

There are many 4G Routers in the market and we had the opportunity to try several models, but I personally like the Huawei B310 router much more than the others, since I found it quite useful in terms of functions.

The first thing I liked was its Wi-Fi coverage, which reaches up to 200 meters, which in my case was more than enough to keep me good signal throughout my house without WiFi extender.

HUAWEI B310 4G Router wifi (4)

The external antennas that this router brings, served me enough to improve the reception of the signal from the operator, as this LTE CPE B310 makes the signal is received much more intensely than what you currently receive on a smartphone, which ensures you a very good service.

I personally used Vodafone 4G network and shared it via Wi-Fi in my house, reaching speeds in excess of 50Mbps, which I found remarkable. And since I do not have a fixed telephone at my house, I took advantage of connecting one to this router. The latter is very useful for people who do not have a fixed Internet and telephone service, in addition to saving a lot of money in the monthly fixed charge, having the freedom to choose the plan yourself which suits you.

Considering the full practical functions for users, we would certainly recommend it as an excellent alternative.

Availability

The Huawei B310 4G Router is available locked with network providers, but you can also get the unlocked units from www.4gltemall.com . With unlocked one, you can change your network provider if you are unsatisfied with the networks or services. And you can even take the unlocked Huawei B310 Router to other countries or areas and work with the compatible network providers. And actually, the Huawei B310s-22 has many brother models such as B310s-927, B310As-852, B310s-518 etc. They are for various LTE network providers and compatible different network frequency bands. So before you buy the router, choose the right one for your location and your network provider.

Conclusion

For some users, the absence of an LCD is not good, since it is compensated by various indicator lights; the Huawei E5771 presents a rather nice aesthetics and especially a huge battery that offers an excellent practical function.

With the powerful network compatibility (not totally) and at an affordable price of $ 189, the Huawei E5771 is a good compromise, knowing nevertheless that it offers neither the category 6 to 300 Mbps nor WiFi ac 5 GHz. If you want a 4G mobile WiFi router with screen or with the latest LTE category 6 carrier aggregation technology, you may check the Netgear Aircard 790s or Huawei E5786 or E5787. They are the latest new models with advanced technology, but it’s a pity, they don’t have the large battery as E5771.
