The AX3 series router supports Wi-Fi 6 and demonstrates Huawei’s cutting edge technology and 5G – with a prominent role in the development of Wi-Fi 6 standards. With its technology, Huawei has facilitated seamless collaboration between routers and other chip-level devices. It delivers powerful Wi-Fi 6+ connectivity when used with Huawei devices.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

As the connecting hub for Huawei’s revolutionary 1 + 8 + N all-scenario smart life strategy, the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 runs on the Huawei Harmony operating system, and features financial-level HUAWEI HomeSec TM security safeguards, providing users with an intuitive, lightning- fast, stable, and secure Wi-Fi 6 connection at all times.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

HUAWEI Wi-Fi 6+: Breaking down barriers with dynamic narrow bandwidth

HUAWEI WiFi AX3 series routers come equipped with Huawei’s exclusive Gigahome processor and Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset. With the Wi-Fi 6 standards as the basis, Huawei has incorporated multi-chip collaborative technology, so as to ensure that the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 offers “Wi-Fi 6+” at a doubled network speed, alongside enhanced wall penetration capabilities, when used with other Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

The Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset made this solution possible, by improving the frequency bandwidth up to 160 MHz, as well as realizing on-demand automatic packet fragmentation in narrow-band mode via dynamic narrow-band technology. This has the effect of stabilizing the working brand frequency bandwidth at 2 MHz, for a wall-penetrating network signal that does not stall. Or simply put, users can enjoy faster network near the device, and more stable connections from further distances away.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

The quad-core version of the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 series also provides support for Huawei Share. Simply by tapping an unlocked Android phone with NFC enabled against the router’s NFC detection area, users can connect directly to the Wi-Fi network without having to enter a password. This feature is particularly handy for catering to house guests, or hotel and restaurant patrons, saving them the time, hassle, and awkwardness associated with asking for and entering a complicated password.

In addition to the exclusive dynamic narrow-band technology, the quad-core version packs four independent signal amplifiers (two for the dual-core version), enabling Mesh networking for multiple Huawei routers, and supporting wireless, wired, and hybrid wireless + wired networking modes that expand network access to every nook and cranny in a household or business.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

The HUAWEI WiFi AX3 Pro is the first home router to run on Huawei’s proprietary Harmony operating system. Taking the factors that slow down wireless network speed into account, it optimizes the routing system from the app layer, driver layer, and kernel layer, and establishes a two-year aging test model to ensure its long-term stability.

The HUAWEI WiFi AX3 quad-core version also incorporates HUAWEI HomeSec TM security protections. An independent security zone (TEE-trusted execution environment) has been built into the Gigahome quad-core chip, and the TrustZone security solution has been constructed from the microkernel for Harmony OS. This solution has obtained the Evaluation Assurance Level-5 (EAL5) certification from Common Criteria, a globally recognized IT product certification organization, further attesting to the product’s financial-level security safeguards.

Huawei’s commitment to eliminating network lag in the Wi-Fi 6 era

Because of its deep understanding of 5G technologies, Huawei has become a major contributor to the Wi-Fi 6 standard. Huawei experts have chaired five Wi-Fi standard working groups, for example, Dr. Osama Aboul-Magd, is the chairman of the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard working group. Additionally, Huawei has submitted 240 new Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) proposals, accounting for 15% of all proposals, which is more than any other device manufacturer. Huawei has also introduced many advanced 5G technologies into Wi-Fi 6.

Thanks to its long-term investment in Wi-Fi 6, Huawei not only offers products that support the Wi-Fi 6 standards, but also integrates unique chip collaboration technologies using its self-developed Gigahome Wi-Fi chips. This enables a range of Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices to deliver an optimal user experience.

Huawei WiFi AX3 (Duad-core)

As well as being a leader in Wi-Fi 6 technology, Huawei is proposing a mid- to long-term strategy for building a seamless smart life for consumers in the next 5 to 10 years, based on the “1 + 8 + N” strategy which focuses on five major scenarios. In this strategy, Wi-Fi routers play a crucial role as connection centers, providing a simple, high-speed, stable, and secure Wi-Fi connection vital for enjoying a high-quality smart life, which is Huawei’s long-term objective.

Huawei has invested tens of millions of dollars in developing dedicated chips for routers. Through the combination of software and hardware at the bottom layer of chips, Huawei has eliminated more than 80% of problems related to frame freezing, delays, and disconnections. In addition to the AX3 series, Huawei will continue to use the Gigahome chipsets on later products. Huawei has also built a Wi-Fi capability center in Wuhan which houses the most rigorous testing environment in the global router industry, meaning that Huawei products can be tested rigorously before becoming available to consumers.

Huawei WiFi AX3 Price and availability

Huawei WiFi AX3 will be available in the market at the end of July. However, Huawei didn’t leak about the price of the Huawei AX3 WiFi router. We will keep updating.

 

 

 

Huawei Released a New 5G Router – 5G CPE Pro 2

A couple of days ago, Huawei launched Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 – the next generation of smart router in the 5G Series Huawei CPE Pro. The new router supports a variety of 5G frequency bands, which is more than any other similar 5G router on the market. The router offers innovative 5G Super Uplink technology and Wi-Fi 6 standard and has been designed with a compact design that is 30 percent smaller than its predecessors Huawei 5G CPE Pro. The unit’s features are a breakthrough for the market and are expected to have further impact on, for example, mobile broadband, HD live broadcasting, video conferencing and telemedicine.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 Specifications

The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 carries the cutting-edge 7 nm Balong 5000 chipset that comes with dramatically enhanced capabilities, and offers support for both 5G NSA and 5G SA networking. The Balong 5000 is the first chipset in its series to support 200 MHz bandwidth and carrier aggregation technology, doubling theoretical 5G peak download speed over that on the first-gen CPE Pro, to a staggering 3.6 Gbps.

In addition to inheriting the four 5G TDD frequency bands (n41 / n77 / n78 / n79) which are already supported by the first-gen CPE Pro, the Huawei CPE Pro 2 has added support for seven more 5G FDD frequency bands (n1 / n3 / N5 / N7 / N28 / N38 / N40). This expanded range transcends the capabilities of other 5G devices, fully meeting the needs of global operators.

Up to this point, 5G coverage has been hampered by an inherent flaw. Although the TDD bands provide for fast connections, their coverage area is rather small. Conversely, FDD bands feature broad coverage, but low bandwidth and thus limited speeds. As a remedy, Huawei has developed its “5G Super Uplink” technology. 5G Super Uplink fully leverages the advantages of TDD and FDD, which are complementary to each other in high and low frequencies, as well as time and frequency domains, boosting uplink speed and coverage to new and unforeseen heights. Therefore, services that are highly dependent on uplink performance, such as HD live broadcasting, telemedicine, and video conferencing, are expected to receive a shot in the arm with the widespread rollout of 5G Super Uplink technology.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 – Supporting WiFi-6+ technology

The HUAWEI 5G CPE is fully compliant with the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard, which is tailored to facilitate optimal 5G high coverage. The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 is capable of connecting with up to 128 devices, and supports MU-MIMO technology and concurrent transmission with multiple devices, as well as exclusive dynamic narrow bandwidth technology that can bolster a Wi-Fi 6-supported Huawei mobile phone with scorching data speeds and broadened Wi-Fi coverage.

 

The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2, which is one third smaller than its predecessor, adopts new silent cooling fans that are capable of dynamically adjusting their operating speed to account for the current temperature. Running at just 30 dB, 10 dB lower than the normal ambient noise level, fans are far quieter as well, while improving cooling efficiency by 50 per cent and reducing the router’s surface temperature by 5 ° C. Reinforced by an effortlessly efficient heat dissipation system, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 is equipped to handle the high loads associated with continuous 5G operation.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 Price and availability

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 will be available on the market later this spring. Regarding the retail price of Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2, Huawei didn’t announce in the debut. We will update the price once it’s available to buy.

Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi E6878-370 Review

Huawei presented a new mobile 5G routers to the public with the latest 5G smartphone – Huawei Mate 30 5G and Mate 30 Pro 5G. The device with the name Huawei E6878-370 was already announced in early 2019 at the MWC, but apparently Huawei has changed the design again and they look like different models.

The Huawei E6878 is a little bit big and heavy compared to other mobile hotspots, but it’s still easy to hold in one hand. This is probably mainly because the new Huawei 5G WiFi Router has integrated a 8,000 mAh battery. In power-hungry 5G operation, the battery should provide very good battery life.

 

The Huawei 5G pocket WiFi can also be used as a power bank, but in addition to the USB type C port, a full-size USB port is also available. Even wireless reverse charging is supported by the router.

On the front of the Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi E6878, there is a small display. Unfortunately, the display is very heavily mirrored; in the bright light you could hardly see it. The operation and configuration can also be done via the Huawei Mobile WiFi app or via a browser web interface.

There is a slot for a SIM card and two buttons on the side. Unfortunately, the battery is not replaceable by the user, while the competitor Netgear all mobile router models have standard replaceable batteries. However, the Huawei E6878-370 not only has the fast battery charging function with up to 40W (Super Charge), but also the 8000 mAh strong battery can charge other electronic devices.

The chipset of Huawei E6878-370 5G Mobile WiFi is a HiSilicon Balong 5000. Of course, the 5G modem is backwards compatible with 4G/LTE, 3G/UMTS and 2G/GSM. According to the official sayings, Huawei E6878-370 could achieve download speed up to 1.65Mbps and upload speed up to 250Mbps. This speed is much faster than the speed from the predecessor Huawei E5788, which can already achieve 1 GBit/s downlink.

 

However, the Internet connection via WiFi 6 is unavailable, which was introduced to be available. Of course, the 5G WiFi router is also backwards compatible with older WLAN standards. Unfortunately, the Huawei E6878 is not equipped with RJ45 Ethernet LAN port, so you have to rely on the USB port, if no Wi-Fi can be used or may.

The Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Hotspot will be available to buy at the end of 2019 in various global markets. If the 5G networks will not be available in short time at your location, you may check the budget 4G mobile WiFi Huawei E5788.
