B2000 = Huawei B593

 

Following the Vodafone B1000, B2000 is with improved hardware based on support from the Chinese manufacturer Huawei. The appearance of B2000 looks like the ” Speedbox LTE “by Telekom, they are both from the original model Huawei B593u-12. With the demand from the operator, they adapted to the design for the respective mobile provider and logo. Thus, the B2000 from Vodafone comes in a white gown, while Telekom is focusing on noble black.

 

 

 

More power with LTE

 

First, the positive features with improved LTE attract eyes. While the B1000 “only” supported up to 50 Mbit/s, the B2000 now offers full support of up to 100 Mbps download speed and 50 Mbps upload transmission. The data is based on perfect network reception conditions. Huawei has also broadened the network support on Vodafone B2000. Instead of only on the LTE800 band, the B2000 can now also be used for LTE 2.6GHz (1.8 GHz would possibly be available after later firmware update). With backward compatible with 3G or 2G networks, when LTE is not available, it switches to HSPA, UMST, GSM or necessary. But for the B1000, this feature was not yet operational. Two external antennas can be connected via SMA connector to B2000 in case that the local reception conditions are not sufficient. A new feature is the telephone support, which is not supported by B1000.

 

 

Telephone and WLAN

 

Vodafone B2000 is the first time to bring telephones connection. If using B1000 Router, you had to combine with a DSL router to set up an LTE phone system or analog. B2000 LTE Router also supports VOIP, there are 2 RJ11 telephone interface. Local wireless networks can now be operated with the contemporary 802.11n WLAN standard with the B2000. That means up to 300 Mbps transfer rate could make true. Unfortunately, B2000 Router is lack of support the 5GHz band, but WEP encryption, WPA and WPA2 and 4 LAN Ports are available.

The supported bandwidth is 10 MHz. So\ the router is uniquely determined only for rural use. The chipsetHiSilicon Hi6910” was installed.

 

Telephone:

 

Unfortunately, the router does not have a PBX. For Germany Telekom, this feature may be a disadvantage. Because in LTE tariff “Call & Surf via Funk “is an analog telephone port (optional ISDN) including fast network speed. So you need no additional hardware.

 

 

LAN & WLAN:

 

For the construction of the home network, 4 LAN ports can be used at the LTE speed port B390s-2. If you prefer to connect wirelessly, user can rely on the WLAN standards IEEE 802.11 b/g, which allows up to 54 Mbit/s data transfer rate. The latest “N” standard is unfortunately not supported, nor as 5 GHz Wi-Fi. This should hopefully be supported with the upgraded model. The HUAWEI B593u-12 provides as significantly Higher speed to 100Mbps. And the encryption method can be chosen between WEP, WPA and WPA2 as usual.
