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.

 

 

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 Available to Buy

As the upgraded successor to Huawei 5G CPE Pro, the new and more powerful 5G Router Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 is available recently in the markets. The Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 comes with the model number H122-373, which was introduced in early 2020 and now is for sale in China and some European countries.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 Specifications

 

Like the predecessor, Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 is SIM unlocked for global use. Alternatively, the 5G router can also be purchased together with a contract or with a contract extension. The Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 is a high-quality and very well-equipped 5G router for stationary use. The chipset of the Huawei 5G router is the Huawei Balong 5000 chipset, combined with the Huawei Gigahome WLAN chipset. A special feature in comparison with other router models is the integrated active fan, and according to Huawei sayings, this should work very quietly.

 

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 supports various 5G NR frequency bands including bands n1/n3/n5/n/7/n28/n38/n40/n41/n77/n78/n79. According to Huawei, the theoretical maximum data rates of up to 3.6 GBit/s in download and 250 MBit/s in upload over 5G. When working on 4G LTE networks, 1.6 GBit/s can still be reached in the downlink and 150 MBit/s in the uplink. In addition, the 5G router even supports the 5G standalone standard.

 

The WiFi module in the Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 supports the latest WiFi 6 standard and can therefore easily forward the high mobile speeds to modern end devices. In theory, up to 2.4 Gbit/s are possible in the 5 GHz band and up to almost 600 Mbit/s in the 2.4 GHz band. The router can connect up to 128 devices at the same time. Since the Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 also supports WiFi mesh with “HiLink Mesh”, the WiFi network can be expanded accordingly if required.

 

Like the Huawei 5G CPE Pro, Huawei has also installed two RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connections, one of which also works as a WAN port if required, i.e. here you can connect the router to a DSL modem, for example. A PDF data sheet with the complete technical data of the Huawei H122-373 5G CPE Pro 2 is available for download from 4gltemall.com .

 

Here now, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 is available to buy but price is a little bit higher than the Huawei 5G CPE PRO. If you can’t wait to enjoy amazing 5G surfing speed, Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 will be a good option for you.

Huawei Released a New 5G Router – 5G CPE Pro 2

A couple of days ago, Huawei launched Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 – the next generation of smart router in the 5G Series Huawei CPE Pro. The new router supports a variety of 5G frequency bands, which is more than any other similar 5G router on the market. The router offers innovative 5G Super Uplink technology and Wi-Fi 6 standard and has been designed with a compact design that is 30 percent smaller than its predecessors Huawei 5G CPE Pro. The unit’s features are a breakthrough for the market and are expected to have further impact on, for example, mobile broadband, HD live broadcasting, video conferencing and telemedicine.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 Specifications

The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 carries the cutting-edge 7 nm Balong 5000 chipset that comes with dramatically enhanced capabilities, and offers support for both 5G NSA and 5G SA networking. The Balong 5000 is the first chipset in its series to support 200 MHz bandwidth and carrier aggregation technology, doubling theoretical 5G peak download speed over that on the first-gen CPE Pro, to a staggering 3.6 Gbps.

In addition to inheriting the four 5G TDD frequency bands (n41 / n77 / n78 / n79) which are already supported by the first-gen CPE Pro, the Huawei CPE Pro 2 has added support for seven more 5G FDD frequency bands (n1 / n3 / N5 / N7 / N28 / N38 / N40). This expanded range transcends the capabilities of other 5G devices, fully meeting the needs of global operators.

Up to this point, 5G coverage has been hampered by an inherent flaw. Although the TDD bands provide for fast connections, their coverage area is rather small. Conversely, FDD bands feature broad coverage, but low bandwidth and thus limited speeds. As a remedy, Huawei has developed its “5G Super Uplink” technology. 5G Super Uplink fully leverages the advantages of TDD and FDD, which are complementary to each other in high and low frequencies, as well as time and frequency domains, boosting uplink speed and coverage to new and unforeseen heights. Therefore, services that are highly dependent on uplink performance, such as HD live broadcasting, telemedicine, and video conferencing, are expected to receive a shot in the arm with the widespread rollout of 5G Super Uplink technology.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 – Supporting WiFi-6+ technology

The HUAWEI 5G CPE is fully compliant with the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard, which is tailored to facilitate optimal 5G high coverage. The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 is capable of connecting with up to 128 devices, and supports MU-MIMO technology and concurrent transmission with multiple devices, as well as exclusive dynamic narrow bandwidth technology that can bolster a Wi-Fi 6-supported Huawei mobile phone with scorching data speeds and broadened Wi-Fi coverage.

 

The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2, which is one third smaller than its predecessor, adopts new silent cooling fans that are capable of dynamically adjusting their operating speed to account for the current temperature. Running at just 30 dB, 10 dB lower than the normal ambient noise level, fans are far quieter as well, while improving cooling efficiency by 50 per cent and reducing the router’s surface temperature by 5 ° C. Reinforced by an effortlessly efficient heat dissipation system, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro 2 is equipped to handle the high loads associated with continuous 5G operation.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 Price and availability

Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 will be available on the market later this spring. Regarding the retail price of Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2, Huawei didn’t announce in the debut. We will update the price once it’s available to buy.

 

 

 

 

ZTE MC801 VS Huawei 5G CPE Pro

As the first 5G WiFi router, Huawei 5G CPE Pro is now being well-known by many customers worldwide and it has been available for a few months. As the competitor to Huawei, ZTE is also one of the important 5G vendors in the world and its new 5G router ZTE MC801 is available recently. For many users, they wonder which one is better between ZTE MC801 and Huawei 5G CPE Pro? And what’s the difference between Huawei 5G CPE Pro and ZTE MC801? Today, we will compare the two 5G wireless routers to provide some clue for the advantage and disadvantage from the two Chinese 5G vendors.

ZTE MC801 VS Huawei 5G CPE Pro Appearance Difference

From the ZTE MC801 review and Huawei 5G CPE Pro review, you may get some knowledge about the two routers. They both have cool and modern design. Below the images will show the design difference. The Huawei 5G CPE Pro looks similar to its predecessor model Huawei B618 4G Router. ZTE MC801 Router adopts the runway-type streamline design, which won iF Design Award 2019. The design looks really cool.

On front of the routers, they both have some LED indicators to show the connection status. Huawei 5G CPE Pro show the 5G, 4G and WiFi status with a button for Hilink while ZTE 5G Router MC801 shows the status of Network, WiFi, SIM, and Power. On the back, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro (H112-372) has two LAN ports(one also for WAN), one power button, two connectors for external antenna. The ZTE 5G CPE has two LAN ports, one USB Type C port and one WPS button. Unlike the Huawei 5G CPE Pro and the predecessor models such as ZTE MF275R, there is no connector for external antenna. So if you are located at somewhere with weak signal, ZTE MC801 may not be a good option because it can’t provide the possibility to connect external 4G or 5G antennas.

The two 5G WiFi CPEs both use NANO SIM cards. And the SIM card slots are located at the bottom of the router with the reset button. At the side of the SIM Card slot, the model number, IMEI number, WLAN name/SSID, WiFi key and IP log in address are listed. The difference is that ZTE MC801 tells the two WLAN SSID names for 2.4GHz and 5GHz, and ZTE MC801 tells the IP log in password (not admin as 4G WiFi routers). Huawei 5G CPE Pro don’t tell the IP log in password because it will be same as the WiFi connection password, which needs to be set up by the users. At the beginning, the WLAN network of the Huawei 5G CPE is open.

Summary

From the table, we can see they have different chipsets which deceide they support different network mode: Huawei 5G CPE Pro support 5G NR dual mode: NSA/SA while ZTE MC801 supports only NSA mode. Huawei 5G CPE Pro has two variant models now, while ZTE MC801 has only one model now. Perhaps there will be more variant models available in near future.

Huawei 5G CPE Pro has two connectors like other Huawei 4G WiFi Routers, but ZTE MC801 doesn’t provide the connector for external antenna, which is not good for many users. Per our experience, many of 4G router users may need external antenna to get better signal and faster surfing speeds.

They both provide the WiFi 6 and this would be the mainstream for 5G wireless devices. Huawei 5G CPE Pro provide the APP management option by Huawei SmartHome APP, however, ZTE MC801 has no this option. According to our check, ZTE MC801 settings can only be done through a browser. And it provides PC and Mobile settings option, which means, users can do the setup through web browser from a cell phone.

The ZTE MC801 price is higher than that of Huawei 5G CPE Pro, perhaps because the Qualcomm chipset is more expensive than Huawei Balong chipset. One thing we have to mention is that the ZTE MC801 is much heavier than Huawei 5G CPE Pro. We suppose this is due to the complex heat radiation system in the router.

 

Regarding the real performance of surfing speeds, we will take future test in near future.

 

Vodafone GigaCube 5G – Vodafone First 5G Router

Two months ago, Vodafone released its first wireless router that is compatible with the new mobile communications standard 5G. The new 5G wireless router converts the mobile Internet access into a WLAN hotspot, so that several smartphones, tablets and notebooks can connect with an Internet access. Like the predecessors Vodafone GigaCube and Gigacube Cat19, the manufacturer of the 5G router is also Huawei. The model is officially called Huawei 5G CPE Pro but for Vodafone under the name Vodafone GigaCube 5G.

 

According to Vodafone official sayings, data transmission rates of up to 2Gbps could be achieved in the 5G mobile network. This concerns the LTE access, over which most customers will initially be predominantly online, especially as 5G availability is still severely limited. The network operator does not reveal how fast users can surf via 5G. A footnote simply states that you can “surf faster” in the first 5G radio cells. Within the home network scores the bolide by using the WiFi-6 technology. This achieves data transfer rates of up to 4.8 GBit/s.

 

At the heart of the Vodafone GigaCube 5G is the Balong 5000 chipset, which is also used in the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G as a multi-mode modem. If the 5G network is not available, customers can also use the LTE, UMTS and GSM network for Internet access with the Vodafone 5G router.

Vodafone offers the 5G router along with the well-known GigaCube tariffs. “With speeds reaching up to 1Gbps,” said Vodafone at launch, “customers are able to access super-fast speeds and reliable Wi-Fi quickly. GigaCube is ideal for those waiting for their home or business broadband, who need a connection for a second home or who have a home office.”

 

It added: “The GigaCube can connect up to 64 devices at any one time and has a wifi range of 90 meters. Thanks to the low latency of 5G, this solution is perfect for small businesses who have multiple employees streaming or downloading at the same time. It is also particularly useful for businesses that don’t have a fixed location, or students and house shares.”

 

Here you can see the general Vodafone 5G GigaCube Specs:

 

  • Network:5G/LTE
  • Chipset: HiSilicon Balong 5000
  • Wi-Fi:11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax; 802.11 n22*2 MIMO for 2.4GHz and 02.11ax4*4MIMO for 5GHz

First 5G router in Germany

The Gigacube 5G was the first 5G Router widely available in Germany, although shortly before another network provider in Germany Telekom presented a 5G gateway named HTC 5G Hub.

 

From a purely visual point of view, it looks similar to the predecessor model called “Gigacube CAT19” at first glance. Instead of the Vodafone logo emblazoned on the front now, the Huawei logo, which is actually atypical for the routers from Vodafone. In addition, the striking big “5G” was stamped on the top. Also, the number of LEDs in the front has been greatly reduced from 8 to 3 pieces.

 

Data rate, models and 5G SoC

The Vodafone 5G Router is actually the “H112-370” model from Huawei. There is, of course, another version called “H112-372“, which differs in terms of Wifi and 5G/LTE equipment. At the heart of the Gigacube 5G is the Balong 5000 chipset, which was introduced in January 2019, The SoC in itself dominated some features, such as 5G in the mmwave area, but which were obviously disabled in part in the firmware. There are also various specifications for the maximum possible data rate. While Huawei speaks of a 5G transmission rate of 2.33 GBit/s in the download and 1.25 GBit/s in the upload, Vodafone gives 2.8 GBit/s (down) and 150 MBit/s (up).

 

Frequencies for 4G & 5G

The newest version controls all nationally and internationally relevant bands. Vodafone GigaCube 5G supports LTE FDD Band 700/800/900/1500/1800/2100 and 2600 MHz. In addition, the TDD band 3500 MHz is supported. At 5G, unfortunately, only one band is supported, the so-called n78 band which includes frequencies from 3.3 to 3.8 GHz. So it could be problematic if other bands are released in the future. If you want to use the 5G router supporting more 5G frequency bands, you may check the Huawei CPE 5G PRO H112-372 which supports additional 5G at n41, n77 and n79.

Connections & WLAN

On the back there are two Gigabit LAN ports, as well as a telephone connection. It describes how to connect a telephone anyway. It is also negative that the 5G model no longer has a USB port. The use as a media server is therefore not possible.

 

The Wifi module, on the other hand, is state of the art and comes with Wifi 6. This refers to the standard 802.11ax, which again promises significantly more data rate than the best ever ac standard. This means a maximum gross data rate of 11 GBit/s. In total, up to 32 users can be supplied with WLAN.

Heavier than the previous models

Conspicuously, the newest router has again increased significantly in weight. While the first model of 2017 still came with a slim 366 grams, the Gigacube CAT19 from the beginning of 2019 already weighed 620 grams. The Gigacube 5G brings it now to stately 765 grams on the scales and has thus more than doubled to the first version.

 

Antenna connections for better reception

Fortunately, Huawei has continued to build two TS-9 ports in the router 5G Huawei, which can be connected to two antennas to improve reception if required for both LTE and 5G reception optimization. Although the internal antennas already do excellent work, but especially in remote regions or in difficult conditions, additional antennas are often absolutely necessary.

 

Other features and innovations

By the way, the 5G router only holds Nano-SIM cards. The predecessors were all still designed for micro SIMs. By the way, Vodafone has by default disabled the PIN on SIM cards. Optionally, this can be set on the router again. The Gigacube 5G also supports Huawei VPN tunnel/VPN penetration, IP penetration, IPv6 and IPv6 dual stack and multi-APN.

 

 

Differences to the predecessor Huawei B818

The following table summarizes again the most important differences to the predecessor model Vodafone GigaCube Cat19.

HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro – Huawei’s First Commercial 5G router

At the Mobile World Congress, Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) presented the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro, a CPE (Customer Premise Equipment) unit that provides ultra-fast broadband speeds, as well as Dual-link functions. This new Huawei 5G Router is designed to achieve more robust “zero distance” connectivity between users and connected equipment. Powered by the Balong 5000, this 5G WiFi router is a breakthrough in the extension and accessibility of 5G technology for consumers around the world.

Developer by Huawei, the Balong 5000 is the world’s first 5G multimodal chipset modem. The power of this chipset allows the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro to be the first with support for 4G and 5G commercial applications in dual modes. It is the first chipset to have the capacity to complete industry requirements at maximum 5G download speeds. Its dual mode functions allow it to operate by default in 4G when the 5G coverage is not strong enough.

“Huawei’s dedication to its research and development has driven the advancement of technology and connectivity from the beginning, so we have made progress, as well as the leadership of the 5G sector from its early stages,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group. “We started our exploration and investment in 5G technology since 2009, and that is why today we are ready to welcome the new 5G era.” We are committed to the development of intelligent systems in all sectors.”

To ensure that the demands for access to networks and consumer connectivity are met, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro uses fiber-like technology with speeds up to 3.2Gbps in commercial networks, to be compatible with ultra high definition visual communications, as well as powerful multimedia interactions. Additionally, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro uses a dedicated video channel as well as video game acceleration channel technology, which means that the performance will be the best possible even in situations of multimedia in 8K resolution or in Virtual Reality games.

The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro sets the standards for mobile spaces, as it is compatible with Wi-Fi 6 technology, also known as 802.11ax. The Huawei WiFi Router allows next-generation Wi-Fi speeds and connectivity, and is designed to operate at the best speeds in any situation. Some extra benefits are: better data transfer speeds, greater capacity and efficiency. Thanks to all this, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro supports WLAN download speeds of up to 4.8Gbps, which is 15 times faster than the 300Mbps of Wi-Fi 4 technology (802.11n, 2 × 2 MIMO).

Designed to receive better signals, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro is the world’s first “small cross-polarized” type antenna that minimizes auto interference effectively. Thanks to its unique design of two crossed antennas, the standard anti-interference distance of 10mm between the antennas has been eliminated, reducing the size of the structure by 20%, and increasing the Wi-Fi coverage by 30%, in both directions vertical as horizontal.
