AVM FRITZ! Box 6850 5G Router Will be Available Soon

AVM announced a 5G router – the FRITZ! Box 6850 5G in 2019. The device never came on the market, instead a version with LTE modem – the FRITZ! Box 6850 LTE – was released in 2020. In the course of the summer of 2021, the 5G version of the FRITZ! Box 6850 should finally come onto the market. AVM has already mentioned technical details, but the company has so far been silent on the price.

Gigabit speed over LTE and 5G

Inside the AVM FRITZ! Box 6850 5G, a Qualcomm modem works, which supports speeds of up to 1.3 Gbit/s when downloading via 5G and up to 1 Gbit/s when downloading via 4G/LTE. The modem can also use 3G/UMTS, but the UMTS networks are currently being switched off in Germany, so that this technology is irrelevant, at least in this country.

The following frequency bands are supported according to AVM:

  • 5G: n1, n3, n5, n7, n8, n20, n28, n38, n40, n41, n78
  • 4G / LTE: 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20, 28, 32, 38, 40, 41, 42, 43

According to AVM, the FRITZ! Box 6850 5G is fully compatible with the current 5G networks, for example DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing) is also supported. It is not clear from the information available whether the FRITZ! Box 6850 5G can also use 5G SA mode (standalone) in addition to 5G NSA (non-standalone).

Further Technical Specifications

The AVM FRITZ! Box 6850 5G is technically very similar to the FRITZ! Box 6850 LTE and the FRITZ! Box 7530. Both the shape of the housing and the technical data are almost identical. On the back there are two SMA connections for an external cellular antenna as well as four Gigabit LAN ports (RJ45) and a USB 3.0 interface. If you will buy the external 5G antenna for FRITZ! Box 6850 5G, we recommend this one: https://www.4gltemall.com/5g-external-antenna.html .

The FRITZ! Box 6850 5G is one of the world’s first 5G routers with an integrated telephone system and DECT function. There is also a TAE / RJ11 interface for an analog telephone.

The AVM 5G Router supports WLAN on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, the maximum speed is 866 Mbit/s in the 5 GHz band. Unfortunately, the new WiFi 6 standard is not supported.

Market launch in summer 2021

The AVM FRITZ! Box 6850 5G should appear in summer 2021, there is no price yet. As soon as it is available, the device will be tested.

Quectel Announces 2nd Generation 5G NR Modules

Quectel is a leading manufacturer of components for IoT (Internet of Things) devices. A few days ago, the Chinese telecommunication company announced new second generation 5G NR modules that conform to the 3GPP Release 16 standard and support sub-6 GHz or mmWave depending on the module.

 

Meet 3GPP Release 16 standard

The Chinese company Quectel Wireless Solutions has presented a range of new 5G NR modules for IoT products. These are second generation devices that meet the 3GPP Release 16 standard. The new releases are divided into the sub-6GHz modules Rx520F and the Rx520N series as well as the mmWave modules of the RM530x series.

 

The new 5G NR modules are based on the latest 5G modem RF systems Snapdragon X65 and X62 from Qualcomm, which were officially presented only yesterday. The new 5G modems meet the requirements of industries that rely on faster, mobile broadband and reliable communication options. The products are intended to help establish the new mobile communications standard quickly in many areas. You can exploit the advantages of mobile broadband in areas such as fixed wireless access, industrial IoT, mobile computing, telemedicine, private networks and more.

 

Sub-6 GHz and mmWave

The new 5G NR modules RG520F (LGA) and RM520F (M.2) for Sub-6 GHz from Quectel are based on the new Snapdragon X65, which supports up to 10 Gbit/s data transfer in the downstream. RG520N (LGA) and RM520N (M.2), on the other hand, rely on the slower Snapdragon X62. The two Quectel 5G modules of the second generation RM530F and RM530N modules (M.2) transmit with both 5G standards (Sub-6-GHz and mmWave ) and thus have dual connectivity. As Quectel has announced, the new 5G modules support all three combinations of sub-6 GHz TDD and FDD Carrier Aggregation (CA). This ensures high performance data, as a combination of the available 5G spectra is possible.

 

Quectel also lets you know that the new generation of 5G chips has received fundamental improvements. They deliver even higher reliability with minimal latency. This is particularly important in commercial use in industry and other areas.
