LTE Cat4 and DC-HSPA+


The centerpiece of the Huawei E5373 is a cellular modem HiSilicon, a subsidiary of manufacturer Huawei. The modem supports all important for Europe frequency bands and allows data rates of up to 150 Mbit/s downstream and 50 Mbit/s upstream depending on the network. In practice, however, the rate could usually be well below the maximum. If LTE network is unavailable, the modem supports both GSM and UMTS networks, the two older wireless technologies. In the UMTS network, it also allows up to 42.2 Mbit s download and 5.76 Mbit/s upload speed if the data accelerator DC-HSPA+ are used.


On the body side of Huawei E5373, you can find two connections for an external antenna. The connector type is TS-9. When the device is in low data rates or unstable Internet connection, an external antenna is recommended. The two connectors are hidden under a cover.


Dual Band WLAN

Up to 10 units can connect to the E5373 LTE router simultaneously via WLAN. Another device may also take advantage of the Internet connection via the microUSB connector and the cable supplied. The manufacturer Huawei has opted for a module, which can send and receive both at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The 5 GHz band is particularly useful when the frequency range is overloaded on 2.4 GHz, which may often happen on large-scale events or in a residential area with many local residents.


6 hours operating time

The Huawei E5373 has a battery with a capacity of 1500 mAh. The energy storage unit is easily replaceable by the user, so if necessary, you can buy a second battery to extend the operating time. According to Huawei, one can expect a runtime of up to 6 hours of continuous operation, then the battery needs to be charged through the microUSB connector again.
