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.

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.

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.

 

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.

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.

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.

GCT GDM7243Q Semiconductor

GCT GDM7243Q chipset is often used on 2X2 MIMO for telecom, which has few advantages, but its availability makes it possible to use 4X4 MIMO in near future.

Huawei B5328 interfaces

In this version Huawei B5328-155, it has a single Gigabit Ethernet port and the WiFi band is only on 2.4 GHz, which seems not enough for a high-end router, and the 4 x 4 mimo technology is only highlights.

After the Algerian Internet users who have the possibility to use this B5328 router via the operator MOBILIS, Vodafone also carries out tests in 4X4 MIMO on its 4G network. And it seems that the operators in German, Switzerland and Austria are in discussions with Huawei.

Huawei B5328 accessories

Here now, the latest 4G LTE Router is Huawei E5186, which is LTE Category 6(Rel 12). After Huawei presents the B5328 LTE CPE, we would expect more similar 4G LTE Routers available in near future. Of course, the routers would do their best performance after the network carriers upgraded their networks.

Huawei E5175

Very few people know the Huawei E5175 LTE Router perhaps because it’s also not listed in Huawei official site. And we also don’t get any information about the router available for any network providers. Perhaps it’s just a test model? We can’t get the answer.

huawei-e5175-e5175s-22-lte-cat6-router

The appearance of Huawei E5175 is similar to Huawei E5186, especially the interface ports, almost copying from E5186. It’s said Huawei E5175 is presented earlier than E5186, but it’s about to end of life. The Huawei E5175 technical specifications are the same as that of E5186 router.

Vodafone B4000

If you are familiar with Huawei wireless gateways, you may know the Vodafone B4000 is the customized Huawei E5186. The predecessor model Vodafone B3000 comes from Huawei B593s-22. On the Vodafone router, the Huawei logo is changed to Vodafone. And the firmware is customized for Vodafone. Other features and functions are completely the same as Huawei E5186.

vodafone-b4000

So if you don’t like the Vodafone brand, Huawei E5186 could fully replace Vodafone B4000. If you want to know more details about Vodafone B4000, click here: http://www.4gltemall.com/vodafone-b4000-4g-lte-cat6-wifi-router.html

 

ZTE MF286

ZTE is always following the steps of Huawei and presents similar products to huawei. So the appearance of ZTE MF286 somewhat looks like Huawei E5186. The interfaces in MF286 are the same to E5186. The chipset of ZTE MF286 is Qualcomm WTR3925 and MDM9230. But Huawei E5186 is on its own chipset. The highlight of ZTE MF286 is that there is an inserted battery with 3000mAh, which means user can take MF286 outdoor or on the go. Other features are similar to E5186. We usually say ZTE is copying Huawei, but we also see the innovation in ZTE products.

ZyXEL LTE4506 

Unlike the three LTE routers above, the ZyXEL LTE4506 is in the shape of cube, which looks like Huawei E5180 LTE Cube. LTE4506 can support up to 32 wireless users. There is a micro-USB connector for charging and a Gigabit LAN port, for connecting wired devices. Frankly speaking, the design of the ZyXEL LTE4506 is cool, if you want to know more details about it, click here:

We believe there will be more LTE Cat6 router available in near future, but currently the above the five LTE routers are the best for LTE advanced networks with CA. There is no doubt that Huawei is dominating this LTE advanced technology. In the above routers, Huawei E5186 is the most popular and mostly recommended. But before you get the right one, check the network compatibility first with your carriers.

Huawei Presents B5328 4 X 4 MIMO LTE Router

Around the end of 2016, Huawei offers the world’s first commercial LTE router B5328 with 4 × 4 MIMO antenna technology. The B5328 LTE Router offers significantly higher data rates in a correspondingly equipped network than devices with 2 × 2 MIMO antenna technology. The Huawei B5328 is the successor to the popular Huawei E5186 LTE Router. In the free trade, the Huawei B5328 is currently not available; however, interested network operators and service providers can order the device on request and thus make available to their customers.

Based on the GCT’s GDM7243Q, the only LTE-A chip commercially available that offers 4×4 MIMO capability, enables Huawei B5328 LTE CPE with higher data rates and throughput while using limited bandwidth (“double speed” with the same limited bandwidth), which is a scarce commodity for network operators.

By integrating the receiver with four antennas and equipping the base station with four transmitters, mobile operators can maximize the use of their spectrum. Huawei B5328 is the successor to Huawei E5186 4G LTE Router. With GDM7243Q chipset, Huawei B5328 cpedelivers LTE Category 5/6/7 throughputs with double speeds enabled by 4X4 MIMO technology, and supports Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and eMBMS (LTE broadcast) as well as other advanced features.

The Huawei B5328 was already introduced in December 2015, but so far only supplied to very few operators, as most LTE networks currently set to 2 × 2 MIMO antenna technology and the B5328 router has no appreciable advantage in such networks to the predecessor model Huawei E5186 Router. You can buy the B5328 for example in Tunisia with the provider mobilis.

Some European network operators have already carried out tests with the Huawei B5328, for example the Czech Vodafone. Vodafone has achieved test with 4 × 4 MIMO antenna technology and Carrier Aggregation around 300 Mbit/s in the downlink.

The Huawei B5328 has no telephone function in the currently available version B5328-155 and has only a single RJ45 Ethernet connection on the back. The WLAN module works only on 2.4 GHz (WiFi 802.11 b/g/n), the exact speed I could not find unfortunately. Basically, the B5328 appears not to be a high-end router in the face of quite meager facilities, while the previous Huawei E5186 LTE CPE had a much greater variety of functions (Wi-Fi 802.11ac and 4x Gigabit Ethernet).

The Huawei B5328 LTE router will also come to the market in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. As we know, the China Mobile will also use this device for the upgraded LTE-Advanced TD-LTE network. From today’s point of view, there is not much to be in favor, as network operators rely on 2 × 2 MIMO antenna technology, higher modulation (256QAM) and frequency bundling to increase the speeds in their LTE networks. Currently, the Huawei E5186 is still dominating the market for 2 X 2 MIMO LTE networks.

Power over Ethernet, or PoE for short, is the magic word that counteracts the cable dialect. The technology makes it possible to transfer power via a LAN connection in addition to the network signal. This allows the LB1111 to be operated without a connection to a commercial outlet. If you want, you can optionally access the included power supply. The 4G network is connected by means of a micro- SIM card and can provide bandwidths up to LTE Category 4. There is also an appropriate tariff required – up to 150 Mbit/s downstream and up to 50 Mbit/s in upload implemented. In addition, all essential in Europe are frequencies (800 MHz, 1,800 MHz and 2,600 MHz) supplied. If no LTE connection is available, the modem can also access 3G (HSPA+) with up to 42Mbps. In an emergency, GPRS is used. If the signal is bad at certain location, the two connectors for external antenna are available to improve the signal.

Huawei E5170 LTE Cube Test

The market appeared an interesting new modem / router Huawei E5170s-22. It is interesting in that it can be used on both fixed and mobile internet connections and in all 2G, 3G and 4G LTE networks. The Huawei E5170 Cube consists of two parts. The lower part of the docking connector for wired LAN. The upper part of the battery serves as a WiFi hotspot for up to 32 devices.

After unpacking Huawei E5170, we can see the simple shape with blue backlight which looks really nice. The front parts are LED indication to display 2G, 3G, 4G signal, wifi, battery charging, SMS messages. On the side of the main body and behind the upper part, there is its own power supply (for battery charging) and two CRC9 connectors for external antenna connection. The lower part of the docking connector includes RJ-45 (Ethernet port) to connect a LAN and power connector.

When you start, I had attached a small wideband external antenna with the E5170 Cube. (I’m in the area where no external antenna to get a LTE signal). Huawei E5170 automatically connects to the Vodafone LTE network although the signal is weaker than a 2G network. After disconnecting the external antenna, the cube switches to unusable 2G networks. Just to test the SIM card from another operator, I put the T-Mobile card and to my surprise, E5170 modem with external antenna connected to LTE network from T-Mobile.

In conclusion, we can say that Huawei E5170 very elegant (compact) resolved a combination of fixed and mobile 4G router. You can simply take the upper part (hotspot) on you trips and use over WiFi for up to 32 devices. Huawei E5170 performs better than my favorite set of ZTE 4G USB modem + router. And the LAN option and built-in antenna for mobile use, the LTE Cube E5170 provide the most possibility for users to connect with network conveniently. It’s recommend in our opinion!
