Huawei E5786


The Chinese manufacturer Huawei introduced the world’s first MiFi router E5786 for LTE-Advanced at the Mobile World Congress in February 2014. The E5786 should be the first mobile router with support for LTE CAT6. But the rival ZTE has a similar device called “ZTE Flare”. This seems at higher quality than the counterpart of Huawei.



LTE-Advanced Router


As already indicated, Huawei E5786 is the first LTE-Advanced equipment with Category 6(CAT6). The current LTE networks comply with category 3 and 4 (CAT 3/4), which take 100-150 Mbit/s for download speed, but with Cat.6, the speed of 300 MBit/s could be achieved for download, practically doubling the current level. However, these data rates will initially only be available in selected cities and probably seldom achieved in practice.


Portable CAT6 Wi-Fi router


The Mini-Router supports LTE to almost all popular bands. For example, 800, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. Of course, it dominated Carrier aggregation at cat.6 and can thus achieve up to 300 Mbits downlink and 50 MBit upload rate. Besides the supported earlier LTE categories, it supports as well as 3G and 2G wireless standards. The Huawei E5786 sets chip on Huawei Hisilicon with a HPM Cortex 9 processor while ZTE flare has a modern block Qualcomm Gobi 9 × 30 chipset in ultrathin 20nm technology.

Users can set up a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 other terminals to log in, and over all popular wireless standards (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac). Data can be exchanged internally with up to 300 Mbit/s via WLAN AC. The operation runs in the dual-band, so either to 2.4 or 5 GHz.





Negative falls on first, that the battery is not removable. The capacity is with 3000 mAh, practically high standard. This should make up 10 hours of online work or 500 hours standby.

As usual, the Operation can be carried out via the browser. Per QR codes, which can be displayed optionally on the display let you integrate quickly into smartphones network, which considerably facilitates the establishment. In addition, Huawei has a special app that can monitor and configure your wireless network. The interface informs the used traffic and provides the wireless data rate represents a graphical trend. There are connections for external antennas and a Micro SD slot. The antenna format is TS-9 here.


The Germany Telekom has the identical model in the form of “Speedport II mini” as an OEM version. The original Huawei E5786 was available on the online trade store . If you like the unlocked original version Huawei E5786, welcome to have a check.
