Speed up to 300 Mbit/s

Theoretically, the Alcatel HH71 supports download rates of up to 300 Mbit/s. Uploading via the mobile data network is possible at a speed of up to 100 Mbit/s. However, as with all devices of this type, these are only theoretical values.

 

Technically, the Alcatel HH71 supports LTE Cat 7 and the LTE bands 700, 800, 900, 1800, 1500, 2100 and 2600 MHz. Reception can be improved by connecting up to two external LTE antennas (TS-9 connector). The prerequisite for reception is that a 4G SIM card is inserted.

 

WLAN for at home

The name “LINKHUB LTE cat7 Home Station” already shows that the Alcatel HH71 router is primarily intended for use at home. It can be used wherever there is no broadband connection and the Internet is to be supplied via the LTE cellular network. It also fits that the 4G LTE WiFi router has no integrated battery, so it is always dependent on a socket nearby. The Alcatel HH71 is therefore not a mobile router that can be used anywhere as a WLAN hotspot. Instead, it opens up a WiFi connection at home. It supports IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with the two frequencies 2.4 and 5 GHz. Up to 32 devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, laptops and more can connect wirelessly to the LTE router. The multi-antenna technology 2 × 2 MIMO ensures a stable connection and good reception. There is also a LAN port that can theoretically be expanded via a hub. It also has an RJ11 port for connecting a telephone. However, some variant models may has not the telephone port.

Simple design

Visually, the rounded Alcatel HH71, which is only available in white, is simple. The connections already mentioned are located on the back. At the front there are four status LEDs arranged vertically one above the other for power, WiFi, network and signal. With dimensions of 145 x 100 x 89 mm, it doesn’t take up much space either. The weight is 325 g for the HH71VM and 330 g for the HH71V1. However, it does not play a decisive role in a device designed for domestic use.

 

 

 

Inside the Alcatel HH71 is the Qualcomm MDM9240-1 platform. It is supported by 2 GB of RAM and 2 GB of ROM. Alcatel offers its own app for setup and administration. Among other things, they can be used to view the status of the connection and the connected devices, change the SSID and password and much more.

 

Other competitors

Many other manufacturers already presented many 4G LTE WiFi routers to the market, such as Huawei B528, Huawei B618, Huawei B525, Huawei E5186, ZTE MF286, ZTE MF275R, ZTE MF288 etc…Their functions are very similar, the main difference is on the appearance and design. Some of them may have better price.

“5G for everyone”

realme wants to help ensure that 5G arrives at the masses and everyone can afford a 5G smartphone. The realme 5G cell phone is therefore particularly cheap with a sales price of well under 300 euros without a contract, but still offers considerable features for its low price.

 

The chipset of the new realme 7 5G is the MediaTek Dimensity 800U. As is well known, the SoC has a 5G modem on board that supports the new cellular standard including DSDS. It transmits on the twelve most important 5G bands. Two Cortex-A76 cores with a clock rate of up to 2.4 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores with up to 2 GHz work as the CPU. The MaliG57 GPU is responsible for the graphics output. Depending on the variant, there are also up to 8 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM.

 

6.5 inch display

The realme 7 5G’s display measures 6.5 inches and takes up 90.5 percent of the front of the device. The update rate is a high 120 Hz, which enables particularly smooth scrolling. Additional features include a 5,000 mAh battery that can be charged with up to 30 watts via a Dart Charge charger. In this way, the battery is 50 percent full again after just 26 minutes. Also on board are a fingerprint sensor and a selfie cam with 16 megapixels. On the back there is a quad camera with up to 48 megapixels and a 119 degree ultra wide-angle lens.

 

The realme 7 5G is scheduled to go on sale on November 27, 2020. However, it can already be pre-ordered now. According to realme, the recommended retail price for Europe is 399 euros. But if you buy the realme 7 5G between November 27th and 30th, you can benefit from the Black Friday Real Deals.

 

 

 

Siemens Presents Industrial 5G Router MUM856-1

Siemens has presented the first industrial 5G router that can be used to connect local industrial applications to the public 5G network. The Siemens 5G router is named Scalance MUM856-1.

Scalance MUM856-1 is coming in 2021

The new 5G router Scalance MUM856-1 should be available in spring 2021. Thanks to the new device, users can remotely access machines, controls and other industrial applications via the public 5G network. In this way, simple remote maintenance of these applications is possible. Here, users benefit from the well-known high data rates that 5G enables.

Sinema Remote Connect, a management platform for VPN connections, also enables customers to conveniently and securely access systems or machines remotely. This even works if they are also integrated in other networks.

Growing demand for remote access

Siemens is serving a booming market with the new 5G router. In industry, the demand for solutions for remote access to machines and systems is constantly increasing. In order to overcome the usually large distances between user and machine, the public cell phone network is used. Participants can even be located in other countries and service technicians can access machines to be serviced from anywhere via mobile radio.

 

5G will therefore play an important role for industry – not only for private campus networks. The public 5G networks are also important for remote access and remote maintenance solutions. Therefore, a rapid 5G expansion is essential important. The new cellular standard enables significantly faster transmission rates, as is possible with UMTS and LTE. This is especially true at the edges of radio cells and in rural areas, where lower speeds are achieved in favor of larger cells. If 5G is not available, the new Scalance MUM856-1 can also use 4G and thus ensure operation without a 5G network. In addition, the device also supports integration into private local 5G campus networks. Siemens is currently testing this application in its own automotive test center in a standalone 5G test network, where driverless transport systems are connected via 5G.

Smarter and Smaller than Huawei 5G CPE Pro

Comparing with the Huawei 5G CPE Pro, the 5G CPE Pro 2 has smaller dimensions but better specifications. They are both based on Balong 5000 chipset, but Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 supports WiFi 6 and provides double of peak download speeds than that of Huawei 5G CPE PRO. In addition, Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 supports more 5G & 4G network frequency bands:

 

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 supports:

* 5G Band: n1/n3/n5/n/7/n28/n38/n40/n41/n77/n78/n79/n80/n84

* 4G Band: B1/3/5/7/8/20/28/32/34/38/39/40/41/42/43

 

Huawei 5G CPE Pro supports:

* 5G Band: n41/n77/n78/n79

* 4G Band: B1/3/5/7/8/18/19/20/28/32/34/38/39/40/41/42/43

 

 

 

 

Latest WiFi 6 standard

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 supports latest WiFi 6 standard. The device thus transmits with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax, supports the two common frequencies 2.4 and 5 GHz and 2 × 2 MIMO. According to Huawei, the WiFi peak download speed can reach 2976 Mbps. The theoretical download peak speed can reach 2402Mbps on 5GHz and 574Mbps on 2.4GHz.

 

Like the predecessor Huawei 5G CPE Pro, two LAN ports (RJ45) with gigabit speed are available for wired connections. One of them is also a WAN port. There is also an RJ11 telephone connection on the back. And there is a USB port. However, the connectors for external antennas are missing in the Huawei 5G CPE router.

 

 

As a stationary router to use at home or in a office, there is no integrated battery in the 5G WiFi router. The Huawei 5G CPE PRO 2 is therefore dependent on a nearby socket to get continuous power supply. The dimensions of 94 x 94 x 178 mm cannot be distinguished optically from its predecessor. If you need a router with antenna connector, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro now is in good price. If you need better performance in a good signal area, Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 is good to consider.

Up to 300 Mbit/s download rate

The “Huawei B535 4G Router 3 Pro” contains the Huawei balong chip, an LTE CAT 7 modem. It supports downloads with up to 300 Mbit/s and uploads with a maximum of 100 Mbit/s. However, these are of course only theoretical values ​​and in practice are usually significantly lower depending on the network environment. The Huawei LTE Router supports almost all LTE frequencies represented in Asia and Europe. Bands B1, B3, B7, B8, B20 and B28 are specified by the manufacturer. Unfortunately there is no information about carrier aggregation combinations.

 

If no LTE network is available, the Huawei B535 Router alternatively switches to 3G/UMTS network. Here it is on the bands B1 and B8. Older standards such as GSM or 2G are not available as an alternative. Since the LTE network is already very well developed for most network operators worldwide, this should not be necessary either. The prerequisite is an inserted SIM card in micro format in the existing card slot.

No WiFi ax

To improve reception, the Huawei B535 WiFi router can be equipped with an external cellular antenna. Two connections are available for this. There is also a WAN/LAN port on the back as well as three additional Gigabit LAN connections. Various LEDs are lined up on the front to tell various connection status information, such as 4G, WLAN, LAN, signal strength and power.

 

Up to 64 devices can be connected wirelessly to the Huawei B535 4G Router 3 Pro via the B535’s WLAN network. The device transmits on the common frequencies 2.4 and 5 GHz, but does not support the new WLAN ax / Wifi 6. There are 802.11ac/a/n 2 x 2 and 802.11b/g/n 2 x 2 MIMO. The maximum wireless transmission rate via the dual-band WLAN antenna is 1,167 Mbit/s.

 

 

No integrated battery

In addition to the LTE router itself, the package content also includes the mandatory power supply unit and a stand to place the device. The power supply plug port is also on the back of the LTE router. The device does not offer an integrated battery, so there must always be an electrical outlet nearby.

 

The 219 x 138 x 25.6 mm large and approximately 325 g heavy LTE router, is primarily intended for home use. Installation is easy and takes place via the compatible Huawei SmartHome app. A multilingual quick start guide is also included for commissioning and clarifying questions. Among other things, support for password-free access to HiLink devices, changing WLAN names and much more is possible via HiLink Smart Home. Other features include SMS service, firewall, PIN protection, MAC address filtering, Wi-Fi encryption, VPN tunnel and VPN penetration, IP penetration, IPv6 and IPv6 / IPv4 dual stack, multi-APN, WeBUI, Administrator maintenance, HOTA and more. However, there is no telephone function.

 

 

Actually, similar to B535 4G Router 3 Pro, Huawei had presented many similar 4G LTE WiFi Router to the market, such as Huawei B612, Huawei B525 and Huawei E5186 etc… They had different appearance and design, but functions are very similar. They are good for home or office networking. If you are interested in Huawei 4G Router, you may select one from them.
