Vodafone GigaCube – Huawei B528 LTE Router Released

A few days ago, Vodafone has officially presented the GigaCube to public with data tariff plan. The Vodafone GigaCube comes from the Chinese manufacturer huawei and the original model is Huawei B528. As the successor to Huawei E5180 Router, the Huawei B528 LTE router follows the design of E5180 cube but different in details. Of course, the technical features are upgraded as the technology develops. Technically, the Huawei B528 can reach speeds of up to 300 Mbps in the downlink (LTE Cat6), but Vodafone limits the GigaCube data rate to 150 MBit/s.



Huawei B528 Specifications

The Huawei B528 has not been sold in Germany; Vodafone is the first network operator to offer the router here. The focus is clearly on the case design in smart white plastic. But technically, the router is quite up-to-date thanks to the LTE Cat6 modem, Gigabit Ethernet and WLAN ac as the following data sheet shows.

Huawei B528s-23a LTE Router
Dimensions  105 x 105 x 181 mm
Chipset  HiSilicon Balong 722
Mobile communications LTE Cat6 (300/50 Mbit / s), UMTS with DC-HSPA +, GSM / EDGE
Frequency bands  LTE FDD: B1, B3, B7, B8, B20, B32. LTE TDD: B38
Connection Interfaces 1x Gigabit LAN (RJ45), 1x RJ11 (VoIP), 2x external antenna, MicroSIM slot
WLAN standard  IEEE 802.11b / g / n / ac (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz, 2 x 2 MIMO), up to 867 Mbps
Package Content  Huawei B528, power supply, RJ45 LAN cable, quick start guide

What interesting is that the Web Interface is probably not from Vodafone, but in the original Huawei design. The Voice over IP telephone function with the RJ11 connection should function basically, that user could use the Huawei B528 to call over the LTE network with the Vodafone GigaCube data tariff. For more practical performance, here you should wait for first user reports.

First router for LTE Band 32 (1500MHz)

Very interesting in the data sheet is also the indication that the Huawei B528 supports the LTE band 32. This is the frequency range around 1500 Megaherz. Vodafone had bought the radio spectrum in 2015 in this area and could use the tape in the future as a “supplementary downlink” to increase the capacity in the LTE network. Currently, Band 32 has not been used in Germany and there are also hardly any end-user devices supporting LTE 1500 or Band 32. The same is true for LTE Band 38, also this is so far not used in Vodafone, but is supported by the Huawei B528.

Even if the Huawei B528 router can theoretically achieve download speed up to 300 MBit/s and the Vodafone network offers even up to 500 MBit/s in the downlink in some places: the GigaCube, as customized Huawei B528 LTE router,  allows a maximum of 150 MBit/s in the downlink. Actually, Huawei had provided another LTE Cat6 router named Huawei E5186 or Vodafone B4000, which can also reach peak download speed to 300mbps. If you can’t wait the availability of GigaCube B528, you may consider E5186 OR Vodafone B4000.

 

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.

 Vodafone K5160 K5160-H Connect USB Speed 6 (5)

LTE CAT4 stick

 

For a long time, Vodafone only has the predecessor Vodafone K5150 for sale, which are already LTE category 4 dominated. With the new K5160 Stick, Vodafone operates more facelift, but LTE CAT6 is still in vain. With LTE Cat6, up to 225 Mbps could be reached. But we can only achieve with a CAT6-device, which so far only the Vodafone R226 offers.

 

 

 

 

From the basic information here, the Vodafone K5160 is similar to Telekom Speed ​​Stick 5. Since Vodafone unfortunately does not specify, it is strongly expected that it also is a E3372s-153 from Huawei. Therefore be supported at least 5 LTE frequency bands – LTE800 more specifically, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. In particular, the former and the latter is essential for Vodafone customers. In addition, the 4G Stick naturally offers backward compatibility with GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA, HSUPA and HSPA+ networks. Thus, surfing the 3G network, after all, also up to 42 Mbps fast.

Vodafone K5160 K5160-H Connect USB Speed 6 (6)

External antenna

The “Connect USB speed 6” (K5160) has 2 ports for operation with an external LTE antenna . As jack comes Type CRC-9 used. MIMO 2 × 2 is also supported accordingly. You can get the indoor and outdoor antenna for Vodafone K5160 from the above link in the blank.

 

Installation and App

The key installed during initial operation on your computer, the “Vodafone Mobile Broadband App” (VMB). Here the settings can be made and users can request information for the connection, such as connection time spent, surfing volume etc. User can download the app from the Windows Store for Windows 8 & 10.

 

 

Availability

Amazingly, the Vodafone K5160 is not directly offered. If you like this 4G LTE Stick, you can get unlocked Vodafone K5160 from www.4gltemall.com . Actually, if you don’t need the customized version from Vodafone, you can directly get the Huawei E3372s-153, which has all the features of Vodafone Connect USB Speed 6. The difference between them is the logo and customized firmware for Vodafone. Other functions are completely the same.

Huawei E3372 LTE Stick Test

Those who want to buy a date LTE stick, will certainly choose the Huawei E3372. The stick is very convenient to get on the Internet. Since the Huawei E3372 was launched in the 2014 Autumn, there has been no review for this new LTE Stick. In recent years, Huawei has brought few new LTE sticks monthly on the market and I thought more interesting models with LTE Advanced Cat6 will surely come on the market soon. Here we already have the LTE router Huawei E5786 and the Huawei E5186.

Now I had the opportunity to test the Huawei E3372 and see more details. The full report of LTE stick test is in this article.

Appearance
As I have already indicated in my introduction, there is no special feature on the Huawei E3372 LTE stick. However, in comparison with older devices, the E3372 is a low-cost model. Huawei is likely to have very low production costs and the LTE stick is also available at very reasonable prices. The direct predecessor Huawei E3276 (also known as Telekom Speed Stick LTE III), for example, had the similar technical data as the E3372, but E3276 has a rotatable USB port, which was very convenient. The E3372 has a compact design and also has its own advantages.

 

The Huawei E3372 is made entirely of plastic, but looks quite stable. No accessories are included with the stick. Only a Quick-Start Guide and Safety Instructions are hidden in the little box.

LTE Cat4 Modem
The modem in the Huawei E3372 allows speeds of up to 150 MBit/s for the downlink and up to 50 Mbit/s for the uplink based on LTE category 4. In the test, I have achieved approximately just 140 MBit/s for download. The latencies were under 20 milliseconds in the LTE network. In the uplink, I could reach about 40 Mbit/s. Of course, the data rate will vary depending on usage and reception situation.

Of course, the Huawei E3372 can also work with UMTS networks including DC-HSPA+ with up to 42.2 Mbit/s in the downlink and 5.76 Mbit/s in the uplink when LTE network is not available. And the GSM and EDGE networks are supported. The LTE modem could support the frequency ranges of 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 megahertz (both FDD LTE), making it well suited for use in Europe. If you use it in America, it can be only conditionally recommended. In UMTS, it supports dual band (900/2100MHz) and in GSM supports Quadband.

 

If you want to improve reception and data rates, Huawei E3372 could connect an external antenna. Under two covers, there are two CRC-9 ports available to fasten a MIMO antenna. Below is the suitable antenna for Huawei E3372 recommended.

Appliances and Software
The Huawei E3372 is designed to operate on the notebook or desktop PC. User just need plug the LTE stick to a free USB port. After a brief driver installation, the drive already connects to the Internet. The connect software does not need be installed due to “Huawei HiLink”. The complete operation and configuration is performed via the browser, just as you would know from an ordinary DSL router or a MiFi router .The Huawei E3372 automatically recognizes the operator based on the inserted SIM card and takes an appropriate configuration ahead, so you make no further settings.

 

To operate the Huawei E3372, you need a standard mini SIM card in 2FF format, which is currently the largest available SIM-card format. Micro or nano-SIM card with an adapter to go but also easily and adapter can cause the stick no harm. By the way, users can also insert a microSD memory card and use the E3372 as USB memory stick.

 

Operating the Router
The Huawei E3372 LTE Stick can basically be operated on a wide variety of router models. Here it is important to distinguish: I have tested in my test version “E3372h-153“, which works significantly less router models than the version “E3372s-153“. So small differences exist between h and s. I was able to operate my E3372h successfully with the Dovado Tiny AC  and a Dovado GO. With AVM Fritzbox 7490, the stick did not work.

 

Telekom Speed Stick LTE V
Telekom also offers the Huawei E3372 for about a year, named “Telekom Speed Stick LTE V”. It is the 5th generation LTE stick at Telekom as the name suggests.

 

Conclusion
The Huawei E3372 is no doubt a good LTE Stick! Although it doesn’t support current LTE Advanced Cat6 technology for very high data rates, the LTE Cat4 modem makes the stick cut a good figure. The receive and transmit performance is well above average and the latency satisfyingly low. Actually, there is no LTE cat6 stick available now.

Technical Specifications

 

The ZTE MF823 from Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor ZTE, replaces the current model MF821D from O2. All thing should be mentioned that ZTE MF823 is not the best USB stick when the ZTE MF825 is also in its product range. It supports LTE category 3 (max. 100 Mbit) and therefore with all networks from O2. In any case, the mobile service provider can offer data connections on the basis of category 4, which allows data rates up to 150 Mbps. It supports the LTE frequencies at 800, 900, 1800 and 2600 MHz – for operation in European countries. Likewise, the MF823 could also support DC-HSPA+ (to 42.2 Mbps), UMTS and GSM networks.

 

 

Unlike the Speed Stick 4 by Telekom, the stick fortunately has two connectors for an external antenna – optional to improve reception. Like almost all other models, user can insert a MicroSD memory card of up to 32GB of storage space for data of all kinds.

 

 

Others

Users do not have to install an extra software for the MF823, which would be auto connect to network. It is controlled conveniently from the browser via the web interface. It is enough to enter the following IP in the browser: http://192.168.3.1. The interface shows all important data at a glance. And you can see, how much volume you have already used in the current billing month. The stick is also compatible with the IPv6 protocol. According to the manufacturer ZTE, the MF823 uses about 1/4 less power than even the previous generations. It’s special for operation on a laptop or tablet. We are also pleased that quite modest dimensions of the model. At just 13 mm in height and 26 grams, it is one of the shallower representatives of its kind. It is alleged that the world’s smallest LTE data modem. Important to mention would be that there is no SIM lock, so the drive can be used with Contract card of other network operators.

 

Conclusion

The ZTE MF823 for O2 can provider users at an acceptable price for mobile Internet. With slim size and decent network support, it could be good partner for laptop. It’s available on www.4gltemall.com . But if you want to find better models, the Speed Stick III or the Huawei E3276, may be good options, but they are also more expensive.

 

Telekom Speedstick V LTE Stick Review

The German network carrier Telekom offers the Speed Stick V now, it’s the 5th version of the stick-series. The new model is distinguished by a number of improvements. This is much anticipated – it is a worthy successor of the Speed Stick III. We will show what the device can do and what advantages it offers compared to earlier versions.

Successor of the Speed Stick III

The Speedstick V should be named Speedstick IV, but we found it missed and IV and directly to V. Perhaps there is a model between the Speedstick V and III. 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 – this status is now taking over the 5. And it will no longer be available.

 

First impression

First, it is noticeable that Huawei continues to focus on the size of the sticks. 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. Unfortunately, Huawei also rationalized the articulated steering away. Actually, this is often helpful when using the laptop, so we rather see it as a deterioration. Solving space issues then creates only the use of an extension cord. In terms of design, optics and processing’s are unfortunately some drawbacks that affect not only the noble silver edge and slightly curvy concept of its predecessor. Here Huawei has unfortunately saved considerably on material. In this price range you must not ask for anything more. We hope that these savings will no established line at Huawei. But what ultimately counts are the intrinsic values.

 

 

 

 

Technical Data

Under the Telekom logo hides the Huawei model this time with the serial identifier E3372, specifically E3372s-153. Again the LTE stick is not compatible with the category 6 (CAT6). In other words, he has mastered yet a LTE-Advanced. The Hisilicon chip allows for connections up to 150 Mbps download rate on category 4 (CAT4). That’s not so tragic, because it is expected with the launch of the new Super-LTE network eventually only in a few months. Why the Telekom is not equal to CAT6 is nevertheless remains questionable because the life cycle of the stick back for sure 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. In the event that no 4G is available, it is switched to GPRS, EDGE, UMTS or HSPA. This is always done automatically and is based on the next best available alternative locally. In this regard, so there are no changes to the Speed Stick III.

 

As usual, it is possible the Surfstick also be used as storage medium, if a microSD is implemented in the slot provided for it. The card may be up to 32 GB in size. The customer can switch an external antenna for reception optimization. There are 2 CRC 9 ports ready on the side.  Here on the standard format (2FF) will continue to set. So if you have a micro SIM, requires an adapter. There is no SIM Netlock as usual.

 

Availability

The Speedstick V is now available on www.4gltemall.com without any contract. In our opinion, it’s on of the best stick now on the market.

 

 

 

 

Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 Review

When we got the Huawei E5730s mobile WLAN router last year, some customers ask when we can get the 4G device like Huawei E5730s. Now we get the new one with Ethernet port, the model number is Huawei E5770. Huawei named it “Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro”. If you know Huawei E5730s, you may know the similar functions of Huawei E5770.

Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro is the upgraded model from Huawei E5730S. It supports 4G networks while E5730 only supports 3G networks. The design of Huawei E5770 looks cool. The wallet design of the Mobile WiFi Pro is fashioned with a leather texture and ornamental plating mid-frame. The E5770 is compact enough to fit in pocket, and it’s also been fitted with an array of built-in innovations.

Like other Huawei 4G mobile WiFi, there is a 0.96 OLED screen on the top front, which can show the network mode, network strength, SMS, battery status and consumed data. Beside the screen, the Huawei logo is printed. On the top side, there is a cover beside the screen. Open the cover, we can see the USB input and output port. And there is an Ethernet port. The USB input is to charge the Mobile WiFi Pro. And the USB output is to charge other electronics.

 

Huawei E5770 is designed with protected and hidden ports, and is also built with Ethernet/3G dual link and the flexibility to support WAN/LAN auto redirect – all so you can stay connected without any problems while you travel. The Ethernet port is the key feature of Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro. Through the Ethernet port, Huawei E5770 can finish three functions:

  1. Transfer the internet connection to WiFi
  2. Transfer 4G connection from SIM to WiFi
  3. Transfer 4G connection from SIM to Ethernet connection

What’s more, Huawei E5770 could support peak download speed to 150mbps on 4G LTE networks. The upload speed could also reach 50Mbps. To have better internet connection speed, Huawei E5770 mobile WiFi Pro should soon replace Huawei E5730s. It would be a perfect partner for international travel on 4G.

 

Another key feature of Huawei mobile WiFi Pro is the battery. The battery has capacity of 5200mAh, which is much larger than usual smartphones. So the Huawei E5770 can be seen as a mobile power bank for other mobile terminals such as mobile phones, tablets or iPods. It can work effortlessly up to 20 hours straight and stand by for over 500 hours.

Like other Huawei E5 Mobile hotspot, Huawei E5770 could support up to 10 wireless devices to access internet. User can insert a micro SD card to 32GB. Mobile WiFi Pro’s big storage means it’s now easier than ever to share files between your devices. It helps you quickly and easily “share” photos, apps with your friends through the same mobile Wi-Fi.

 

To sum up, Huawei E5770 combines 3 main functions (Mobile hotspot, power bank, Ethernt router) to one. It’s a special and very practical mobile pocket router. If you usually need wireless network outdoor, Huawei Mobile WiFi Pro E5770 would be a perfect partner.
