Huawei B593 = Telekom Speedbox LTE

 

As usual, the routers for Telekom and Vodafone are in difference label. To identify the devices, the appearance of the router is usually slightly modified (eg, color or some ports) and the logo of the mobile provider is customized for respect providers. The Speedbox LTE is in black color like Speedport LTE, while Vodafone B2000 is in white. But actually, they are the same model from HUAWEI B593, more accurately, the model number is B593u-12 LTE CPE.  From the label on the back of the router, we can see the details.

 

 

Improvements

 

The previous model Speedport LTE still belongs to the first Generation of LTE routers which were available in late 2010. Unfortunately, accordingly to the feedback from users, the Speedport LTE is not successful 4G equipment. LTE terminals were still scarce; therefore it had to be functional. The new version Speedbox LTE finally brings long overdue with new features and improvements.

 

First, the Speedbox is also backward compatible with 3G and 2G networks. This is important in case LTE is not available around. This features help Speedbox automatically revert to the next fastest standard. Previously, customers had to unfortunately live with a total failure, because the fall-back function was not anticipated at the Speedport. In addition, the router B593u-12 now dominates the LTE frequency bands at 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz. The predecessor was only designed for LTE800, ie designed for rural areas. The maximum data rate of HUAWEI B593u-12 is doubled to 100 Mbit/s downstream and 50 Mbit/s for upload. Beyond is a new USB port and connection for phones. Both analog telephone and VOIP should be possible.

 

 

 

Since, as already mentioned, the old Speedport is only capable of a wireless standard that Telekom provides far from two different modes. When choosing between the “Speedport LTE” and “Speedport HSPA”, the router Speedbox will choose depending on which standard is more available to the customer. This features is smart for the users who are not familiar with 4G Routers.

 

 

Availability

The Speedbox is available in the Telekom retail stores and online store www.4gltemall.com without LTE contracts. Many users prefer unlocked Speedbox, or more honestly, they would choose the factory model HUAWEI B593u-12 because they are just logo or appearance difference, functions are all the same and original factory model is SIM free for any operators.

Technically speaking, the Huawei B390s-2 is in the B1000 series. In the industry it is common to “brand” hardware from original manufacturers but with their own logo on the appearance. Also the appearance may vary slightly from the “original”. The integrated 4G-LTE modem B1000 is only compatible with the LTE band around 800 MHz. More specifically, it can on the band of 832 MHz – 862 MHz send (upload) and in the band of 791 MHz – 821 MHz receive (download).The supported bandwidth is 10 MHz. So the router is only unique for rural use up to 50 Mbit/s and is not suited for urban use. The chipset is “HiSilicon” (Hi6910), which is HUAWEI own chipset.

 

 

Telephone:

Unfortunately, the router does not have a PBX. In the LTE tariffs from Vodafone, there is no telephone available, which is of course no problem. However, the provider also offers complete packages with phone line and optionally with fixed flat rate. Customers who order the version with telephone, will note get the B1000. Alternatively, a pure LTE router together with a conventional DSL router is supplied, which is named Vodafone B2000. The Vodafone B2000 is upgraded from B1000, which is not only better in network coverage, but also the functions and performance.

 

LAN & wireless network properties:

The B1000 provides 4 LAN ports and of course Wi-Fi functionality for setting up a home network. The wireless network provided can be operated with standard 802.11b and 802.11g. With up to 54 Mbps integrated into the network, it can therefore support a maximum of 32 devices wirelessly (eg, laptop, internet radio). The latest “N” standard is not supported yet, which is a shame. Neither dominates the B1000 the spark in WLAN operation at 5 GHz. The LTE B2000 Router provides significantly more. And WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption is possible options.

 

 

 

Extras:

The Vodafone B1000 is curiously almost twice as heavy as the technically virtually identical Telekom Speedport LTE. The weight is 900 grams, if user worry about the place to lay this device, here are the exact dimensions: 177 x 193 x 34 mm (width x height x depth).
