Netgear AirCard 810s Review

Netgear is known as a leader in the world for mobile connections and has distinguished itself in this field producing various portable 3G/4G devices, which are highly appreciated by users. In the series of wireless aircards, Netgear presented aircard 781s, 782s, 785s, and 790s and the Sierra wireless’s aircard 760s, 762s an 763s. And Netgear doesn’t stop here. New models with upgraded technology become available as time goes.



We got the new modem Netgear AirCard 810S for a long time and we present our views today. It is a Wi-Fi router with the possibility to use with 3G and 4G by your SIM card (in the format mini). On the top, we find a single physical button to switch on and to awaken the display. Once turned on the front screen you will light up and from there you can manage almost all settings, thanks to a convenient touch panel or the two keys (always touch) present alongside.

What’s more, the presence of two connections for external antennas and a removable battery (the SIM card holder is located under it) are very useful for users. If the Netgear aircard 810s is working at some places with weak signal, it’s better to connect 4G LTE MIMO antenna with two TS-9 connectors to improve the signal and surfing performance. The removable battery can provide an option for users to use spare battery.

Signal reception on both 3G and 4G are excellent for long trips by train, and the signal was stable for a long time. We have many devices connected to our Netgear AC810S router using the password supplied, but it can be changed with ease. The display gives you lot of information simultaneously: the connection status, remaining battery power, the network name, password, data consumed since the last reset of the counters and days remaining to next renewal.

After enter in the web interface, we can see three columns: WiFi, Messages and Settings. The first allows us to change the Wi-Fi network settings, such as name, password, or even activate the network in 5 GHz(2.4 GHz as default ) or a network for guests. You can also check which devices are connected. And it also presents WPS and the ability to increase or decrease coverage.

 

The settings for the Aircard 810s portable router can also control the brightness and screen timeout, the network preference, APN, and airplane mode. What most surprised us, however, is the autonomy of this device. With 2-3 connected devices and an normal mobile use, we found a decrease of about 10% battery every hour spent, which is a pretty good result.

This modem Netgear Aircard 810s, is now available at www.4gltemall.com with unlocked version and various accessories such as external antennas. The price is a little bit high, but it is understandable considering that the aircard 810s as a top range of portable 4G modem. With good battery life, good stability performance, information-rich display and connectors for external antenna, Netgear aircard 810s is still one of the best portable 4G routers. Only the high price and lightweight plastic body are disappointing for potential users.

 

Huawei P10 and P10 Plus Difference

At the end of February 2017, Huawei presented the two new smartphones Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus at the MWC. Only a few days later, the two phones are already available at first dealers. We already had the opportunity to take the Huawei P10 in our hand and to test briefly, in this article I would like to describe our first impression of the Huawei P10 and, of course, a short overview of the technical data. In addition, we share the images from Huawei about the new phone, in which it presents you the details of the Huawei P10 and also the differences between P10 and P10 Plus!




Huawei P10

The Huawei P10 would be available soon in the colors black, blue, silver and gold. We could see the gold version; this version left a very positive impression. The body is completely gold, a visible frame is not available through the metal design. The display glass is slightly rounded to the sides, which makes the device very handy. It’s in extremely strong similarity to the Apple iPhone 7, which is the first expression when hand the phone. But this should not be a disadvantage, because like the iPhone, the P10 can convince with its case on full line and even offers some advantages: there is a 3.5mm headphone connector and the camera is completely integrated in the case. Nice detail: the power button is red colored like the predecessor Huawei Nova and looks particularly beautiful in connection with the gold case.

The internal memory of the Huawei P10 is 64 GB and can be expanded with a MicroSD memory card, the memory measures 4 GB. As a processor, the HiSilicon Kirin 960 is used, the same model is already used in the Huawei Mate 9. Of course, again, a fast LTE modem is on board, according to Huawei, LTE in category 11 is supported, ie up to 600 MBit/s in the downlink and up to 50 MBit/s in the uplink.

The battery of the Huawei P10 is 3,200 mAh large and cannot be changed by the user, which is very common for current flagship smartphone. Huawei supplies a power supply with quick charge function so that the battery can be recharged very quickly. As a connection for charging and data transfer, USB Type C is used, wireless charging function is not available in the Huawei P10.

Huawei P10 Plus

The Huawei P10 Plus is larger than the P10: 153.5 x 74.2 x 6.98 mm are the dimensions, compared to 145.3 x 69.3 x 6.98 mm for the P10. Moreover, it is about 165 grams heavier than the P10. The reason for the larger dimensions is the 5.5 inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixels, while the P10 “only” offers a 5.1 inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixels. The processor is the same as the P10, but the memory is somewhat larger with 6 GB and also the internal memory space is 128 GB twice as large as the P10.

The 12 megapixel dual camera of the Huawei P10 Plus is slightly better than the P10, which applies to both the front and the rear. So the P10 Plus has a f1.8 aperture, so more light should be on the sensor than with the f2.2 aperture of the P10. The 8 megapixel front camera of the P10 Plus also offers an autofocus, but the P10 is only a fixed focus. As with the predecessor model Huawei P9, the camera was developed in cooperation with the German company Leica. In a first test, the quality of the P10 camera in bright environments was very good, but in dark environments, the effect is not as good as expected.

Below are the main difference between Huawei P10 and P10 Plus:

According to Huawei, the P10 is commercially available from March 15, 2017, but a few providers are already delivering it. You can get more information about the P10 and the P10 Plus on the Huawei website or the distributor on www.4gltemall.com .

 

Huawei B525 4G LTE Cat6 Router Review

More and more network providers in the world are upgrading their LTE network to LTE-advanced with carrier aggregation technology. Consequently, LTE terminals are demanded by the carriers and end users. As we had introduced before, the Huawei E5186 LTE router is the world’s first LTE-advanced router for LTE Category 6, and it was available in the market for almost two years.

Here now, huawei release a new LTE Cat6 router, the model number is Huawei B525. Supporting LTE Cat6 up to 300Mbps download speed, huawei B525 4G Router could connect easily with up to 64 users at top speed to the internet. So Huawei B525 router could be always accessible for you and your friends in office or at home for high speed internet access. The B525 router can be connected using a wireless LAN or Ethernet cable.

 

As we know, the Huawei B525 is already available for the network provider “Play” and “Telenor” in Europe. And the specific variant model number is Huawei B525s-23a. From the model, we can’t tell which LTE frequency bands are supported by the B525 router. But as a sub-model for European market, we suppose it should support LTE Band 1/3/7/8/20/32/38(800/900/1500/1800/2100/2600MHz,TDD 2600MHz). The router is also backward with 2G and 3G network.

From the appearance, we suppose the Huawei B525 comes from the Huawei B315 and of course get upgraded on technical specifications. In addition to 4 RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports, there is one RJ11 phone port. On the back, two connectors for external LTE antennas are covered by a cap. The connector type is SMA. Here we have two external LTE antenna for Huawei B525 as below. The powerful antennas ensure the best possible reception.

Netgear Nighthawk R7000 AC1900 – thanks to LTE-Advanced

With the AC1900 Codename “Nighthawk”, you get an all-round carefree package for modern broadband connections. By using a micro SIM card equipped with a LTE data tariff, LTE speeds of up to 300 Mbit/s can be achieved in the download and a maximum of 50 Mbit/s in the upload. This corresponds to LTE-A of category 6 (CAT6). In order to realize these bandwidths, two-band carrier aggregation with up to 40 megahertz is used. The equipment of the used LTE bands is for the use in European areas without gaps. The most important 4G frequencies in Europe, 800 Megahertz, 1,800 Megahertz and 2,600 Megahertz, are supported by the Nighthawk. If the LTE reception is not sufficient, backward bands can also be used on 3G (UMTS). Here the band 1 (2,100 Megahertz) and 8 (900 Megahertz) are used.

Netgear Netgear R7000 provides powerful hardware

The hardware platform of the LTE router reads quite usable. For example, a 1 gigahertz clocked dual-core processor is working inside the device with 256 MB of RAM. In addition, 128 MB Flash-ROM was integrated. In addition to the connection via WLAN, four LAN ports can also be used for the network connection. In addition, there is an additional port for connecting a cable or DSL modem. A 1.5 meter long Ethernet cable is included to get started. Unfortunately, external LTE antennas cannot be connected.

The cable-connected connection possibilities for end devices such as USB sticks and printers were implemented with 1x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0. WPA and WPA2 with PSK provide the necessary security during data transfer with the WLAN connection, as well as two firewalls (SPI and NAT). An LED on the Nighthawk signals the current operating status. The WPS button for an uncomplicated and fast connection from the terminal to the router is also on board, in addition, the AC1900 is VPN-capable.

Maximum 1.9 Gbit/s bandwidth and open source

 

What is special in the Netgear AC1900 Router is the possibility to use both an LTE connection as well as cable-bound Internet. Due to the combination of WLAN frequencies 2.4 GHz (with 256 QAM support) and 5 Gigahertz, WLAN ac is theoretically possible up to 1.9 Gbit/s. The high data rate is achieved by combining WLAN at 2.4 and 5 GHz, beamforming technology and triple MIMO via the well-visible paddle antennas. The use of two Internet connections, in this case LTE/UMTS and fixed network, prevents a connection termination. If the 4G signal is weak, the fixed network takes over, the cable-bound interface is interrupted, the mobile radio jumps in. Further safety functions, System optimizations or setting possibilities can be supplemented by programmers thanks to Open Source. You can find the firmware for the AC1900 R7000 “Nighthawk” and other routers.

Five 4G/LTE Outdoor Antennas to Recommend

Since more and more LTE broadbands are used with the wireless network upgrade, many people complain that they had weak signal at their location, so their 4G routers, 4G USB dongles or 4G mobile hotspots can’t show the best performance, i.e. they can’t provide the fastest possible speed for surfing. As the top professional supplier of the 4G mobile braodbands, we 4GLTEMAll.com concered on what our customers concern. To solve this problem, it’s better to let the network carrier to deploy the cell tower so as to get better network coverage. However, in most cases, the carrier would not do as you wish. Then you’d better to take an external LTE antenna to improve the signal. Today, we would like to recommend five 4G LTE outdoor antennas.

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. ZTE MF287 3neo (4) 3neo LTE router

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. ZTE MF287 3neo (3)   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. ZTE MF287 3neo (1)

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

The Germany operator Telekom offers the 5th version of the stick-series now named Speed Stick V. The new model is distinguished by a number of improvements. It is a worthy successor of the Speed Stick III. We show what the device can do and what advantages it offers compared to earlier versions.

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.

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.

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). What’s more, there are two TS-9 connector in the M1 hotspot for external LTE antenna. If you are looking for a 4G/LTE external antenna for Nighthawk M1, we have one to recommend: http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-antenna-two-ts-9-connector.html

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).

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.

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!
