Four High Gain 4G Outdoor LTE Antennas to Recommend

More and more 4G LTE Routers and 4G USB modems are available in the market; many users would expect faster speed on 4G networks than that from 3G networks. However, due to far from the cell tower deployed by the network providers, the 4G/LTE signal coverage is very weak. Before the network providers do something to change the situation, users can connect an external 4G antenna to the wireless device to improve the signal so as to speed up the data transmission. And it’s better to use a high gain outdoor antenna rather than indoor 4G antenna.

 

To select a 4G external antenna, you need check how many antenna connectors there is on your device and the connector type. For example, if you are using Huawei E5186 4G LTE Router, open the cover on the back, you will find the connector for external 4G antenna. The connector type is SMA-female. In the 4G data transmission, two connectors are for the application MIMO technology. So you’d better choose an LTE Antenna with two connectors. To connect to the SMA-female, the right connector at the cable end of the antenna is SMA-male.

 

One more thing to consider is how long the distance between the router and the location where to install the antenna. The distance determines the length of the antenna extend cable. For example, if your Huawei E5186 router is near the window and you will install the outdoor LTE antenna just outside the window less than 10 meters. So you can select the extend cable of 10 meters. Somebody may suppose the longer the cable, the better to use. However, consider the longer of the cable, the gain would lose more. So the antenna cable is better in short. If your device is far from the installation point, you’d better select to use high-quality material in the cable so as to reduce the gain loss.

 

The good news is that the extend cable for the outdoor LTE antenna could be customized on www.4gltemall.com. So you don’t need worry about the cable. Below are recommended Outdoor LTE External antenna to use with 4G LTE Gadgets:

TP-Link Archer MR400 AC1350 4G LTE Router Review

Sometimes 3G/4G networks will broadcast a better connection than those from the ADSL network. TP-Link presents the new Archer router MR400, which is upgrading from the predecessor Archer MR200 AC750  Router, when ADSL access is not possible at home or on the move, the TP-Link Archer MR400 Router can take over to distribute the connection of 3G/4G mobile networks via WiFi.

With the MR400 Router, there is an Ethernet cable packed that can be used to wired one to four PCs via the dedicated ports. The 4G LTE router has a power button, reset or access to WPS for a fast connection and a button that allows to enable or disable the Wifi connection only. The location of the SIM card is easily accessible. Two adapters for Micro-SIM or Nano-SIM are provided; one click shows that everything is well engaged.

The MR400 Archer is light and rather pleasant at the design level. However, the black body seems to be a little textured and not glossy. It acts like a dust magnet and even with clean hands fingerprints appear from the first manipulation.

 

 

Interface connection

Once the SIM inserted and the router MR400 connected to the wireless network, the LEDs give the status on the connection of the device and the availability of the wifi. They are however quite discreet. The manual prompts you to first connect to the wireless network whose name (SSID) and password are listed under the router.

It is then necessary to access the interface of the router via an internet browser by entering the IP address 192.168.0.1 or tplinkmodem.net. Here it is possible to enter the default identifiers (admin / admin) to enter the interface. The password can be changed to the one per user’s preference. To configure from a smartphone or tablet is more easily, TP-Link also offers applications for iOS (download from Apple store)or Android(Download from Google Play).

 

Features and connection

A small assistant helps the user to configure the router in 3 simple steps, it was enough to leave the information by default. Before that you have to enter the PIN code of the SIM card. The interface indicates the path to follow to access it. Once the connection is tested and the wizard finished, we connect to the interface.

It is well designed and easy to handle if you speak English. The “Basic” tab contains a graphic representation of the network and the devices connected to the routers, the possibility of modifying the Wifi parameters, activating a guest network or a parental control function.

The “Advanced” tab contains everything that can be expected from a conventional router: NAT rules, security settings, bandwidth control to avoid eating too quickly his package or even what to connect to a VPN. An SMS section allows to send text messages without leaving the interface, it worked without difficulty.

 

The bandwidth test was very convincing with an excellent bit rate that makes us forget that we are connecting to a mobile network and not to ADSL. Of course the quality of connection depends on the presence of 3G or 4G antennas from the operator, but the result is more fluid than using the modem of the smartphone.

Below are the general specs for TP-link Archer MR400:

 

  • 4G LTE maximum network speed of 150 Mbit/s
  • 4G LTE maximum speed per network 50 Mbit/s
  • 4G: FDD-LTE Cat4 (800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz)

Conclusion

TP-Link regularly offers new firmware for the Archer MR400 Router on the support pages of its site. For now only English is available, on the other hand it is a pity to have chosen a body material that is certainly very flattering visually, but also very messy.

However, the TP-Link Archer MR400 router is doing the job well, and the configuration is very easy. The interface is quite simple to handle, even for those who do not speak English fluently and the application also allows some settings from a smartphone. In all, TP-link Archer MR400 is a good router for home or office.

Vodafone B1000 4G LTE Router

Vodafone B1000 is a new 4G LTE router for Vodafone. Behind the router, there is a stick indicating the model number of “B390s-2” and the manufacturer company Huawei. The noble, handsome white case houses an LTE modem router with WLAN. Following you will find all the important details including specifications, characteristics and overview about Vodafone B1000 4G Router.

Technically speaking, the Huawei B390s-2 is in the B1000 series. In the industry it is common to “brand” hardware from original manufacturers but with their own logo on the appearance. Also the appearance may vary slightly from the “original”. The integrated 4G-LTE modem B1000 is only compatible with the LTE band around 800 MHz. More specifically, it can on the band of 832 MHz – 862 MHz send (upload) and in the band of 791 MHz – 821 MHz receive (download).The supported bandwidth is 10 MHz. So the router is only unique for rural use up to 50 Mbit/s and is not suited for urban use. The chipset is “HiSilicon” (Hi6910), which is HUAWEI own chipset.

 

 

Telephone:

Unfortunately, the router does not have a PBX. In the LTE tariffs from Vodafone, there is no telephone available, which is of course no problem. However, the provider also offers complete packages with phone line and optionally with fixed flat rate. Customers who order the version with telephone, will note get the B1000. Alternatively, a pure LTE router together with a conventional DSL router is supplied, which is named Vodafone B2000. The Vodafone B2000 is upgraded from B1000, which is not only better in network coverage, but also the functions and performance.

 

LAN & wireless network properties:

The B1000 provides 4 LAN ports and of course Wi-Fi functionality for setting up a home network. The wireless network provided can be operated with standard 802.11b and 802.11g. With up to 54 Mbps integrated into the network, it can therefore support a maximum of 32 devices wirelessly (eg, laptop, internet radio). The latest “N” standard is not supported yet, which is a shame. Neither dominates the B1000 the spark in WLAN operation at 5 GHz. The LTE B2000 Router provides significantly more. And WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption is possible options.

 

 

 

Extras:

The Vodafone B1000 is curiously almost twice as heavy as the technically virtually identical Telekom Speedport LTE. The weight is 900 grams, if user worry about the place to lay this device, here are the exact dimensions: 177 x 193 x 34 mm (width x height x depth).

4G Broadband for 4G LTE Band 3 (1800Mhz)—Most Commonly Commercial LTE Spectrum

According to the most recent report of LTE network status from GSA, total 42 operators over the world had commercially launched LTE 1800Mhz as their next generation LTE network spectrum. Some of them may set this single band or as a part of multiple band deployment. In the total 113 commercial LTE networks, the band 1800 occupies 37%, which let it become the most popular and most commonly commercial LTE band.

And we also get the the spectrum of 1800Mhz is now available in follow 29 countries: Angola, Australia, Azerbaijan, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Mauritius, Namibia, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, South Korea, Tajikistan, UAE, and UK.

It would be lucky for those people who had a 4G USB Modem, 4G WiFi Router, 4G Tablet or 4G Smartphone, because if they go to these countries, they just need to change their SIM card, they can easy enjoy the local 4G Service. Of course, they have to make sure their devices are unlocked. Here now most of the 4G broadband could find unlocked one in the market.

In this case, what’s the best 4G USB modem and 4G WiFi Router for band 1800Mhz? It’s a good question for those who usually go to different countries, this information help them to get  devices for commonly use.

 

Per the past market record, HUAWEI and ZTE sales of 4G LTE terminal leads the 4G era. And the two Chinese vendors released the most 4G gadgets. Unlike 3G USB modem or 3G Router, 4G modem and 4G Router are not in high price range because very few people feel urgent to use 4G broadband to get 4G speed, the production of these broadband in low level. And the current economy depression slower down the promotion of 4G.

Now we back to the question, what is the best 4G USB modem for spectrum 1800Mhz? The writer think to give options is better to give decision, HUAWEI is the world top telecom equipment supplier and their modems and routers are stable functions, but its competitor ZTE is also not bad, with the reliable quality, ZTE can offer comparatively better price than ZTE. Just like to choose a smartphone between Apple and Samsung, if you want more fashion and more cool, choose Apple, but if you concern more about the price, SAMSUNG may be a better choice.

So we recommend HUAWEI E392 4G LTE Surfstick and ZTE MF820 4G USB modem for band 1800Mhz. But you may feel confused by HUAWEI E392 model number, you can check the previous blog about E392 frequency and you can choose the right one.

 

Regarding the 4G Router, it seems HUAWEI E589 4G Pocket WiFi and ZTE MF91 4G Pocket WiFi Router are perfect, but per our investigation, Sierra Wireless released its 4G pocket WiFi Router in large quantity, it’s now selling at lower price, Sierra Wireless 760s and 762s 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot. People can take them into consideration.
