China Three Network Providers Get 5G License for Test

A few days ago, Chinese three major network providers (China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom) gained the 5G frequency band license for the national-wide test. China Telecom has obtained 5G test frequency resources with a total bandwidth of 100MHz from 3400MHz to 3500MHz; China Mobile has obtained 5G test frequency resources in the 2515MHz-2675MHz and 4800MHz-4900MHz frequency bands, in which the 2515-2575MHz, 2635-2675MHz and 4800-4900MHz frequency bands are new frequency bands. The 2575-2635MHz frequency band is the re-cultivation of China Mobile’s existing TD-LTE (4G) frequency band; China Unicom has obtained 5G test frequency resources with a total bandwidth of 3MHz from 3500MHz to 3600MHz.

 

Network Carrier 5G Frequency Band
China Mobile 2515MHz-2675MHz(N41), 4800MHz-4900MHz(N79)
China Unicom 3500MHz-3600MHz
China Telecom 3400MHz-3500MHz

This is the final test before the 5G in China will be commercially launched in 2019. As planned, the 5G will be launched for commercial trial in June 2019 and after application test, 5G network will expand the coverage more widely in larger scale at the end of 2019. And in 2020, 5G will become common and the cell phone will have 5 telecommunication modes.

 

Huawei 5G Router for mmWave and C-band Released

At the Global Mobile Broadband Forum, Huawei announced the first modem routers (“CPE”) for the new 5G cellular standard. The company has two devices in preparation, one for the C band (frequency range between 3.5 and 5 gigahertz) and one for the millimeter wave range between 26 and 28 gigahertz. Although the two 5G routers still have some drawbacks such as an enormous energy consumption to fight, yet it is likely to be the first commercially available 5G devices.

Huawei 5G router for C-band feature

Compared to a current LTE router like Huawei B618 , the Huawei 5G router for use in the C-band between 3.5 and about 5 GHz is quite large and heavy, but the first 5G devices are safe to handle.

According to the manufacturer, the Huawei 5G router should be equipped with two RJ45 Gigabit LAN ports and WLAN 802.11ac (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz). The 5G C-Band Router is backward compatible with the 4G LTE standard and comes with a 2T4R antenna configuration, which means: data can be received on four antennas while sent via two antennas.

 

Huawei 5G router for mmWave feature

The Huawei 5G router for the millimeter-wave frequency range between 26 and 28 gigahertz is visually hardly distinguishable from the sister model for the C-band. But there is one important difference: millimeter waves can hardly or never enter buildings, so a line of sight to the 5G transmitter is required. This is done by an outdoor unit (ODU) integrated with the entire modem technology.

The indoor unit (IDU) features all the connections and the WLAN technology. The indoor and outdoor units are connected via LAN cable, the power supply of the outdoor unit is realized via Power over Ethernet (PoE).

 

 

High energy consumption from the Huawei 5G router

As can be seen on the data sheets shown above, both Huawei 5G devices have an enormous power consumption, at least under load. The C-band model consumes up to 120 watts, while the mmWave model even up to 146 watts. So when the 5G router working, the power consumption is more like a gaming notebook rather than a router. For comparison: common LTE routers such as the Huawei B715 LTE router consume up to 12 watts during heavy load, ie one-tenth of them.

However, Huawei emphasizes that only the first generation of the 5G modem will have such high energy consumption. It is also likely that commercially available 5G routers will have a newer chipset and thus lower power consumption.

 

Huawei and Three UK Release 5G Router for Home

It’s said that the 5G networks would be launched in many countries and areas, so as the next generation of 5G mobile phones. As an important application, 5G router would be also an important part for 5G connection and surfing. The UK provider Three released its first 5G home access point from the Chinese network equipment supplier Huawei. Three UK owns 100 megahertz of radio spectrum in the range around 3.7 GHz and expands its 5G net with this spectrum. Huawei can provide both the network technology and the appropriate terminals for 5G.

 

5G can be used for a variety of purposes, but fast Internet for the home is probably the first application that will be introduced over a large area. With the 100 MHz wide spectrum that Three UK has available for 5G, it is theoretically possible to achieve up to 2 gigabits per second – which is about twice as fast as the currently most powerful LTE connections. What is more interesting than the top speed is the average speed, which should be at 1 gigabit per second. Compared to LTE, that’s a big step forward. A 5G connector can not only easily replace a VDSL supervising connection, but even achieves speeds previously only possible with fiber optic connectors.

 

Although Huawei already presented the first 5G router in 2017, it is now being used in practical use for the first time. It is the 5G router model for the so-called C-band, ie the frequency range between 3.4 and 3.8 gigahertz. Externally, the router is inconspicuous therefore and does not differ from an ordinary 4G LTE router. The router would certainly not win a design prize, but the technology dominates.

 

The Huawei 5G C-Band Home Router can also use LTE in addition to 5G, as shown in the datasheet below. Wi-Fi is supported at 2.4 and 5 gigahertz. There are two Gigabit LAN ports on the back, plus some LEDs and a SIM card slot. Whether or not eSIM is supported, Huawei didn’t tell. The power consumption is up to 120 watts – 10 times as much as a normal LTE router!

 

 

Even the 5G available in near future, you cannot buy the Huawei 5G router, presumably, the 5G router will only be available via some specific providers in some countries. But we suppose there will be more and more 5G modem routers available as time goes.

Netgear Nighthawk M5 – World’s First 5G Mobile Hotspot Released

Recently, the US mobile operator AT&T launched the first mobile 5G hotspot which comes from the Netgear. The 5G device is named Netgear Nighthawk M5 Fusion, which receives and transmits data via an integrated 5G modem and then forwards the Internet connection via LAN and WLAN to other devices. The new hotspot includes a Qualcomm X50 modem, the first consumer 5G modem. 5G is supported in the millimeter-wave range by 26 GHz, in this frequency range, the provider AT&T launches the 5G expansion in the US. Whether the range between 3.5 and 3.7 GHz is supported by the modem, which is used in many other regions of the world for the launch of 5G, is currently not known.

AT&T didn’t confirm other specs for the Nighthawk M5 Fusion (we got the name from an image title on AT&T’s press site), but we think it also has a Qualcomm X20 modem for gigabit-plus speeds on LTE.

 

The announcement by Netgear and AT&T was made in late October 2018 as part of a 5G test in Waco, Texas. The 5G network technology gets from Ericsson. AT&T plans to launch the 5G network in at least 12 US cities by the end of 2018, and by early 2019, 5G will be available in 19 US cities.

 

The Nighthawk M5 Fusion looks like Netgear existing Nighthawk M1, and the revealed product image of the new Netgear Nighthawk M5 5G hotspot shows the Nighthawk M5 in cuboid design and with a large display on the front. There are no other technical details yet, so it is unclear how long the battery life will be in 5G operation and what connections the device offers. Neither AT&T nor Netgear have provided information on the maximum speed.

 

The M5 Fusion model from the Nighthawk series will probably be among the world’s first commercially available 5G router and it’s also should be the first Netgear 5G Router & ATT 5G Router. It’s said it would be available in 2018 for the launch of the AT&T 5G network in the US. Details of the technical equipment were not released yet, but the Nighthawk M5 should be the successor of the Netgear Nighthawk M1. We will keep updating the news and detail specifications about Nighthawk M5.

5G & 5G Applications and Features

The hyperlinked community of 5G revolutionary technology is soon a reality. It means a huge number of things connected to the network, high speeds, minimal delays, increased reliability, and brand new opportunities for using the web.

 

What is 5G?

 

5G will give us two main types of communication solutions: The first gives us a mobile broadband network with higher capacity and improved user experiences. The other main type provides a 5G network that will allow special online solutions for many different purposes with different functionality requirements. There will be billions of things connected to the web, for very fast response times, and for increased security and reliability.

 

The big difference between the 5G and previous generations is that the 5G is designed to provide networks and services to various industry and community-driven devices, as well as services and networks for the smartphone.

 

What are the 5G applications?

 

In addition to mobile broadband, 5G will be offered as fixed broadband access to households and businesses in areas without fiber networks. Broadcasting of radio and television will also be facilitated. Emergency services will have their own safe and effective solutions for crisis situations, including coordination of communication with audio, video, maps, positioning, first aid, drones management, etc. Enterprises, government agencies and households will be able to create their own “private” networks of sensors and machines that can be controlled and controlled via the network. Vehicles will be connected and combined for safer and more efficient traffic congestion. In the health sector, 5G could be used for telemedicine for diagnosis and treatment of patients wherever they are. Within the energy sector, 5G could be used for measuring and controlling production, distribution and consumption in more environmentally friendly and cost-effective ways. Within the food industry, 5G will enable more efficient and environmentally friendly production and distribution with the use of sensors that monitor and quality assure the entire food chain from sea, field and farm to the dinner table.

 

5G is expected to be a driver in the digital transformation of the future ICT community, such as smart and smart sensor and communication solutions, autonomous transport solutions and emergency networks. Individuals will experience new and improved digital services on their smartphone delivered over 5G. These services will be much faster, more accessible and safer than today’s services. Private individuals will also benefit from sensor and communication solutions for smart cities, autonomous transport solutions and emergency networks. Other 5G services will exploit the available rate and improve the security of virtual or custom reality transfer, for example to “hospital in ambulance” or firewall support systems.

 

When does 5G come?

 

From the start, 5G will gradually be built on top of the 4G network. 5G technology is standardized in two phases, in 2018 and 2019 with international approval in 20201 2, but it is difficult to determine when 5G is widely available.

 

5G is being developed and piloted in Europe, Asia and the United States. During the Olympics in South Korea, it was tested among other things. 360-degree TV services and use of 5G based robots. Commercial development is expected to start in 2020 as needed, but there will not be a massive deployment that we have seen for 3G and 4G. In the coming years, international research and innovation within 5G will focus on evaluation of 5G.

 

The 5G will come with a number of new and unique features, compared to the 4G network which we have become accustomed to. Three key examples of areas that will delight in 5G, so-called industry verticals, are autonomous transport solutions, the energy sector and the media industry. A thoughtful transport solution may be the intersection of cars (“platooning”) with communication between the cars and from the cars to the network, which requires extremely low latency and strong robustness. This will make it possible to synchronize cars and traffic signals for optimal driving speed and density of cars under all conditions.

 

However, for the energy sector, a massive IoT system with large amounts of sensors that still provide new information and data for monitoring, control and mainframe analysis can be critical.

 

Within the media world, it would be possible for consumers to have access to a 5G high-speed network that enables high-quality streaming in real time, preferably with an AR experience as well.

 

 

 

What are the 5G features?

 

There are especially five features of 5G that provide great potential for new applications, helping drive the hyperlinked community and enable much of the revolutionary technology we hear about otherwise:

  1. Skid network

5G enables operation of a more flexible and programmable network. This becomes possible through the use of new technology for logical or network slices. Various logical networks will be created at the top of this extremely flexible infrastructure and will provide as diverse devices on the network as the application requires. This means in practice that it will be perceived as services with very different needs, such as healthcare, industrial areas and autonomous vehicles, each having their own network, within the same network – tailored to their needs, and without compromising each other.

  1. Robustness and Quality Guarantees

This segmentation also enables guaranteed service quality (QoS) to be provided to different industries, services and applications – which are especially important for critical functions (such as health and emergency services, transportation and industrial production) and also make it safer to become more digital. It ensures robustness in the network, which allows services with zero tolerance for outcomes, errors and delays, to deploy web-based services and systems in a completely new way.

  1. Extremely low delays

5G will offer much lower delays in the network than before, some estimating down to 1ms. In a 4G network, the delay is about 25 ms. As mentioned above, this will be especially important for self-propelled cars – which can communicate for both safer and more efficient transportation, when a car knows that the front of the car slows down in what it does, one is both secured against a potential collision and can Avoid cuts in synchronized motion. Also in health, low delays can be considered as essential, for example, using remote-controlled robot surgery – which you will not have any delays but have near perfect response time from machine and patient at a hospital to the doctor who controls the operation from another hospital. 5G offers ultra reliability in these delays for Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC).

  1. Possibility of massive volumes of things connected to the net

The 5G technology will also enable a large number of things connected to the network, called massive machine type communication (mMTC). We already see that most people have a smartphone, but the vast growth of connections is sensors, machines and things that are connected to the network – so-called Internet of Things or the Internet of Things (IoT). These things also have very different needs: some will exchange tiny amounts of data and ensure long battery life (as a parking sensor dug down in the asphalt) while others, like a self-propelled car, have plenty of power but will transfer large amounts of data to cloud. Should all the technology now expected within the broad IoT concept be used, one must have a network that can handle such massive volumes of things on the same network. It offers 5G, which enables one million connected stuff on the same network per square kilometer.

  1. High speeds

The least radically different from 4G to 5G, yet remarkable, is the development of the speed of the network we will be able to offer. This is not only necessary to meet the strong growth in data traffic in the web as we already see, as more content requires large amounts of data. An example here is if more and more are going to stream 4K quality video. It also means that brand new applications are emerging. For example, far more advanced features and operations can be done in the “cloud” because data is transmitted quickly in the web and does not need to be stored or processed locally. This allows mobile devices to become more advanced, and do more demanding things than we have been used to.

 

Some of these properties will also be incorporated into the 4G network, which is constantly evolving (so-called 4,5G). This means that they will be available also where there is no 5G coverage, but you will still use 4G. It is therefore a continuous development of the 4G network as well, which will be in the process of digitizing society. The 5G will allow brand new applications for the technologies we already have, and be necessary to utilize the technologies we expect to come. The practical consequence of this is that if we are ready to take advantage of all the opportunities offered by new technology, we rely on better digital infrastructure than we currently have.

Samsung SFG-D0100 5G Home Router Pass through FCC Approval

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States has recently completed compatibility testing of the first 5G router, which will be used by customers using the wireless Internet connection. The Samsung router with the designation SFG-D0100 will be available in the offer of the American operator Verizon. This equipment works in the 5G mmWave 28 GHz millimeter. The 5G terminal “SFG-D0100” made by Samsung Electronics (Samsung Electronics) passed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on April 30, 2018. FCC ID is A3LSFG-D0100.

The frequency of the mobile network is certified at 27.50 to 28.35 GHz. Radio waves from the 28 GHz millimeter range have the same strong propagation suppression. This means that the range of the base station is small. However, engineers working on 5G solved this problem using beamforming technologies. This means that both the base station and the client’s device can form, by means of the antenna system, a directional antenna radiation pattern aimed at the direction chosen by the system. The Samsung 5G router uses for this purpose 2 antenna systems, of which each of them consists of 32 small antennas. Each system radiates on a different polarity, so data transmission takes place in 2 × 2 MIMO mode. On the other hand, the very high frequency allows us to occupy the 800 MHz wide channel (here we aggregate 8 blocks of 100 MHz each). Samsung SFG-D0100 is the model number of the unreleased terminal.

It is customer premises Equipment (customer premises equipment: hereinafter referred to as CPE) for indoor use. It corresponds to the millimeter wave (mm Wave) of the 28 GHz band which is considered as the leading candidate frequency band of the fifth generation mobile communication system (5G) from the frequency certified by FCC.

 

 

In the United States, Verizon Wireless plans to commercialize 5G for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) in 2018, and Samsung Electronics has decided to deliver communication equipment to Verizon Wireless in 2018.

The SFG-D0100 is likely to be a 5G indoor CPE provided by Verizon Wireless’ 5G. In FCC, labels and terminal diagrams are released. From the label we know to manufacture in South Korea (South Korea), China, Vietnam factory.

Huawei 5G Router

More and more countries are starting the 5G trial since 2018, even though 5G commercial networks have not yet been launched, many people are keen to know the latest new 5G routers and some network carriers want to get 5G routers for network test purpose. Huawei, as the 5G standard maker and the top network equipment vendor for worldwide network providers and end-users, is, of course, dominating the 5G trend. Based on the success on 4G Router, Huawei 5G router is also attracting many potential users.

Huawei had presented the world’s first 5G chipset to the public since the beginning of 2018 at MWC and based on this 5G platform, Huawei released two new 5G CPEs: Huawei 5G CPE mmWave and 5G CPE sub6GHz. Just like the Huawei 4G Routers, the two Huawei 5G Routers also support difference 5G frequency bands. Actually, Huawei also released a new Huawei 5G Router named Huawei B818 on official site. Here now we can’t tell which one is the best 5G router because the details specifications about the three Huawei 5G routers are very limited.

Five LTE Advanced Pro Modules to Recommend

With the development of LTE wireless technologies, more and more networks are evolving from LTE advanced to LTE advanced Pro. LTE Advanced Pro (LTE-A Pro, also known as 4.5G, 4.5G Pro, 4.9G, Pre-5G, 5G Project, and so on) is a marker of the 3GPP release 13 and 14, which is a natural evolution of Long Term Evolution (LTE) with speed up to Gbit/s level, which incorporated numerous new technologies that would be used in 5G standard, including 256QAM, Massive MIMO, LTE-Unlicensed, LTE IoT, and others to progressively evolve existing networks into 5G standard.

LTE-A Pro aims to significantly increase the data speeds and bandwidth available for mobile communications. It will also bring a much wider range of connected devices and platforms under a single standard. LTE-A Pro seeks to improve and optimize the capacity, performance, functionality and efficiency of LTE-A, as well as to further reduce latency, to provide a better user experience. It will also enhance the LTE platform for the delivery of new services to new markets as we move towards IoT with 5G.

The key attributes that will define LTE-Advanced Pro are:

> Data speeds in excess of 3Gbps (LTE-A: 1Gbps)
> 640MHz of carrier bandwidth (LTE-A: 100MHz)
> Latency: 2ms (LTE-A: 10ms)

 

Since very few LTE Advanced pro devices are available in the market, the LTE vendors are already presenting their LTE advanced Pro modules to the public and below the five LTE advanced Pro modules are recommended if your terminals are demanding high-speed internet access:

Huawei Launch World’s First 5G Chipset and 5G CPE

Huawei launched the world’s first 5G Chipset and first 5G CPE at MWC 2018 in Barcelona yesterday. According to Huawei official sayings, the 5G chipset model is Balong 5G01, which makes Huawei the first company offering an end-to-end 5G solution through its network, devices, and chipset-level capabilities.

As the world’s first commercial terminal device, Huawei 5G Router supports 3GPP 5G Standards with Huawei developed 5G chipset Balong 5G01, which it labeled as being the world’s first commercial 3GPP 5G chipset supporting download speeds of up to 2.3Gbps across sub-6GHz and millimeter-wave (mmWave) spectrum bands. The 5G CPE comes in a sub-6GHz model and an mmWave model, Huawei announced. This device marks a milestone as Huawei sets the stage for the next generation of wireless connectivity.

 

The HUAWEI 5G CPE has two models, low frequency (sub6GHz) 5G CPE and high frequency (mmWave) 5G CPE respectively. The HUAWEI low frequency 5G CPE is small and lightweight, compatible with 4G and 5G networks, and has proven measured download speeds of up to 2Gbps – 20 times that of 100Mbps fiber. This provides an ultra-fast experience, allowing users to enjoy VR video and gaming experiences, or download a TV show within a second. The HUAWEI high frequency 5G CPE is available in indoor and outdoor units.

“mmWave technology will be an important tool in ensuring widespread deployment of 5G technology in Canada. Huawei’s 5G solutions and terminals will enable 5G coverage over a neighbourhood or small community cost effectively, while providing more convenient and high-speed home broadband Internet access services.” said Dr. Wen Tong, Huawei Fellow, and CTO Huawei Wireless, “This friendly user trial will drive the global 3GPP unified 5G standard and build a solid foundation for the 5G early commercialization.”

 

5G technology will underpin the next leap forward for our intelligent world, where people, vehicles, homes and devices are fully connected, delivering new experiences, insights and capabilities,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group. “Since 2009, Huawei has invested US$600 million in research and development into 5G technologies, where we have led the way with innovations around network architecture, spectrum usage, field verification and more. From connected vehicles and smart homes to AR/VR and hologram videos, we are committed to developing a mature 5G ecosystem so that consumers can benefit from a truly connected world that transforms the way we communicate and share.”
