Huawei B525 VS Huawei E5186

As the top telecom equipment supplier, Huawei 4G Routers are very popular in many countries based on high quality and stable performance for internet connection. And we also find some huawei wireless routers have similar specifications, i.e they support same LTE category, same LTE download speed etc. For example, we found Huawei had presented the LTE cat.6 routers such as Huawei B525 (new model) and E5186 (old model). Those who want to buy Huawei 4G LTE cat6 routers may feel confused which one to choose because they are too similar. Today, we will have a look at what’s the difference between the two Huawei LTE routers.

Huawei E5186 and B525 are both 4G LTE Wireless router supporting LTE CAT6, which means they both could achieve LTE download speed to 300mbps and upload speed to 50mbps technically. As the old model, huawei E5186 had been available for almost two years and very popular in Europe and Australia. The Huawei B525 was just available from second half of 2017.

 

Here now in the market, the most popular model for the two Huawei routers are Huawei B525s-23a and Huawei E5186s-22a. They cover the most common LTE frequency bands in Europe, Middle East and Asia. With support of LTE band 32, B525s-23a is more up to date than E5186. However, they both work for LTE-A network and have Ethernet interfaces for WAN & LAN. And as the typical feature for 4G LTE Routers, they both have the SIM card slot. So they are both 4G WiFi Routers with SIM card slot and Ethernet port.

Appearance 

 

Huawei B525 is the most recent desktop LTE gateway from Huawei, which is in littler size than E5186. With the measurement of 163 mm x 52 mm x 226 mm, there are control, Wi-Fi, flag quality, organize mode and LAN/WAN marker at the front board of the B525. At the back interface of the B525, there are 4 x RJ45 ports for WAN/LAN, 1 x RJ11 port, 1 x USB port and power connector plug. Furthermore, there are additionally two connectors for external antennas. Regarding the Huawei E5186, the dimension is 194 x 177 x 64 mm, and there are control, arrange mode, WiFi, voice and flag pointers on the front board. Two SMA connectors for external antenna, 4 x RJ45 ports for WAN/LAN, 2 x RJ11 ports for VoLTE and phone, 1 x USB port for capacity and power connector plug are located in a line.

From the appearance, we could get little contrast from the B525 and E5186, one is with 1 RJ45 port, and the other is with 2 RJ45 port. If you prefer black color, Huawei B525 has black color available. Huawei E5186 has only white color available.

 

From the appearance, we can’t see what the real difference is. To be perfectly honest, for single client who needs to purchase Huawei LTE CPE, they both could do well. One could fully replace the other.

Technical Features

 

The band bolt is supported by Huawei B525, which can’t discover in LTE CPE E5186. That implies you could run the B525 to a particular frequency bands from the setup menu of web UI. This is a helpful element when the administrator wants to select preferred network frequency to surf internet. Huawei B525 supports L2TP VPN setting. At the point when L2TP VPN is enabled, the throughput execution will back off, the maximum speed can up to 50Mbps (subject to network environment). On this point, Huawei E5186 doesn’t have such feature.

 

 

For all Huawei LTE CPEs, there are diverse sub-variant models for various network frequency bands and carriers. For Huawei E5186, there are two adaptations accessible: E5186s-61a (Band 3/7/28/40) and E5186S-22a (Band 1/3/7/8/20/38).  The new model Huawei B525, provides the most well known sub-models B525s-23a (Band 1/3/7/8/20/32/38), in addition to Huawei B525s-65a (Band 1/3/5/7/8/19/20/26/28/38/40/41 FDD1700/1400mhz) and Huawei B525s-95a (supported LTE bands unknown now). From the sub variants, we can see that the B525 seems more powerful on the LTE bands support than that of E5186, which means Huawei B525 could be used more widely with more network providers.

 

Conclusion 

 

From the appearance and technical features, we can there are some difference between the Huawei E5186 and B525. However, for most users, the different features may not influence the usage of the Huawei LTE router. And even Huawei B525 is newer model with new features, the Huawei B525 price is not as good as Huawei E5186, which is also an important factor for users to consider. But if you need to purchase band 32 CPE, Huawei B525 is the right model. In summary, huawei B525 is newer with more feature and powerful, but with higher price. Huawei E5186 has decent functions for common use, if you don’t have specific requirements, the lower price may be attracting.

This E5186 router also allows you to have the latest WIFI standard, and in particular to be compatible dual band 2.4GHz and 5Ghz, the latest 802 ac is also supported.

It allows you to use an analog phone to make and receive calls from the inserted SIM card. This is crucial because operators are reluctant to use the SIM card only as a modem! It has a multilingual interface that you manage from your computer to configure your network quickly and easily (DHCP, VOIP, Firewall, consumption management etc), and it is also compatible with the mobile application Huawei Mobile WiFi for a configuration via smartphone.

You can share your 2G/3G/4G/4G+ connection in WiFi (WiFi support maximum up to 32 devices) or Ethernet (4 RJ45 sockets). In the package, there is an Ethernet cable, a user manual and an electrical adapter.

Huawei E5186 router has an on/off button which is easy to turn it off when you do not use it. Likewise, a WPS button (to connect wifi easily) is to enable/disable WiFi.

With the LTE advanced technologies, this Huawei E5186s-22a is currently not at high price comparing with the latest Huawei B618S-22d LTE router, which supports more advanced LTE technologies. Huawei E5186 4G Router is now in a really budget price, which will have good price and higher performance for faster surfing speed at home or office.

 

HUAWEI B315s-22 4G LTE WiFi Router Review

The Huawei B315s-22 is a 4G router for family use. Like its predecessor Huawei B593s-22, it allows sharing the 4G connection in WIFI with a valid SIM card from a network operator, and of course, the SIM card must has a data plan. Thus, in places where ADSL is of poor quality but 4G is available, it would be necessary to replace the ADSL and use the new Huawei B315s-22 with new contract from 4G network provider.

Configuring Huawei B315s-22

The configuration of this type of router does not pose any difficulty. It is normally enough to insert the SIM, start the router, connect to the address http://192.168.1.1 after having connected to the B315 router’s WIFI (name and wifi key available behind or below) and then launch the quick configuration in the interface (login name and password are both default as “admin”).

This router is also controllable using the mobile application HUAWEI HiLink available on android or ios. User can manage the router settings from smartphones and Pads.

Our Opinion about Huawei B315

The Huawei B315s-22 is an excellent 4G router. The main difference with the HUAWEI B593s-22 is that it has better 4G reception, it only has one RJ11 port, it does not support the SIP protocol and it does not allow the router to use only the 4G. Thus, if the 4G/LTE signal is not very powerful, it switches itself in 3G or worse in 2G. However, you can connect an external 4G/LTE antenna to change this situation. You can connect a phone using the RJ11 jack (you need a T/Rj11 adapter if you have an old handset) to make calls using the sim card number 06 or 07 (If it is not just a data card).

For most cases, the Huawei B315s-22 is enough for most users with the support of LTE download speed to 150mbps and upload speed to 50mbps. But if there is LTE advanced or LTE-A pro network available, it’s also better to try the latest Huawei E525, Huawei E5186 or Huawei B618 Routers. We suppose one of them would definitely meet your demand for home or office wireless network.

Huawei B525s-23a 4G LTE Cat6 Router Review

The manufacturer HUAWEI has launched the router B525-23a in 2017, and now the latest 4G router B525 is already available for some network providers in Europe, Middle East and Asia, which is to replace the same excellent predecessor router Huawei E5186s-22a.

Huawei B525 B525s-23a

The dimensions of Huawei B525 router are 22.6cm long, 16.3cm high and 5.3cm thick. Its weight is 370 grams. These features mean it’s not a portable pocket WiFi router. It supports the 4G+ LTE category 6 on the bands:  1/3/7/8/20/32/38 (800/900/1500/1800/2100/2600MHz, TDD 2600MHz). No 700MHz(Band 28), so check first whether this router is right for your areas before you pick up, i.e. your network providers broadcasts on the above bands, which will make sure you can use this new router normally without any problem.

Huawei B525 B525s-23a

The proposed WIFI is a/b/g/n/ac on dual bands 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz and supports up to 64 devices connected over 250m range. (Warning: these are the data of the manufacturer in optimal conditions; the range of the wifi depends on the thickness of the walls and other parameters.) At the back of the wireless router, there are 4 ports for LAN, of which 1 port is for LAN/WAN. An external 4G/LTE antenna can be connected via the 2 SMA ports. We recommend below two antennas for Huawei B525 for indoor and outdoor use:

Huawei B525 B525s-23a interfaces

An RJ11 port allows you to connect a phone on it to make calls via the inserted SIM card. (Provided you do not force the router only on the 4G so that it can switch to other voice frequencies and that your SIM package is not only in data) A USB 2.0 port connects a hard drive or printer. The SIM card must be in the MICRO SIM format.

It has a multilingual interface that you manage from your computer to configure your network quickly and easily (DHCP, VOIP, FIREWALL, consumption management etc) but is also compatible with the mobile application Huawei Mobile WiFi for a configuration via smartphones or Pads.

Huawei B525 B525s-23a label

 

The Huawei B525s-23a Router 4G has an on/off button which is to turn it off when you do not use it. Likewise, a WPS button (to connect wifi easily) and 5 LEDs will allow you to know the intensity of your 4G reception. This HUAWEI B525s-23a is the latest flagship of the brand’s 4G routing modems. At a relatively affordable price (compared to smatphones for example), you will be able to get rid of a deficient ADSL network and multiply your connection speed.

Regarding what’s the real difference between Huawei B525 router and Huawei E5186 router, we will check later. Actually, they are too similar technically, we don’t know why the new B525 is presented when the Huawei E5186s-22a is good enough for current LTE cat6 networks.

Huawei E5180 Cube for Congstar Homespot Test

At the IFA, congstar presented its first mobile phone tariff at the beginning of September, which also officially foresees the use of Telekom’s LTE network. However, the offer can only be used in a certain place, for example, to have a broadband internet connection in the caravan, at the campsite or in the student residence.

 

In the contract, congstar presented a WLAN Cube, also a suitable router manufactured by Huawei, which converts the LTE Internet access into a WLAN signal, which then makes it possible to provide internet for smartphones, tablets and notebooks with a wireless Internet access supply. A device can also be connected directly to the WLAN Cube using an Ethernet cable.

We have s the opportunity to test the homespot rate of congstar together with the WLAN Cube since last week. The SIM card must be inserted into the router slot. The WLAN Cube is then supplied with power via the included power supply unit. The PIN of the SIM card must then be entered. This works via the configuration menu of the router, which can be reached at address 192.168.8.1 via a connected smartphone, tablet or notebook. For future use, the SIM PIN can be stored so that it does not have to be entered again.

Congstar Homespot from Huawei E5180

 

The WLAN access data and the homespot model are to be found on the underside of the router, which in the original is called Huawei E5180. After initial commissioning, the SSID as well as the password can be customized. In addition, users have the option of switching from the automatic selection of the WLAN channel to manual selection. The WLAN Cube is supported only by the much heavily overloaded 2.4 GHz range. If you want to use a 5 GHz router, you have to check other models such as the latest Huawei B525 and Huawei E5186 wireless gateway. If you want to use your own router instead of the congstar WLAN Cube, you have to make sure that it has the LTE standard and the frequency ranges used around 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz.

 

However, the test also showed that congstar Homespot is not only working with 4G network. If LTE is not available at the desired location, the cube would work on 3G or 2G network automatically. We have switched the WLAN Cube, however, experimentally via the configuration menu to the GSM-only mode. Afterwards we were shown a strong signal.

 

In addition to the signal strength of the received mobile network, the configuration menu for the Huawei E5180 router also shows the current connection time and the transferred data volume. The WLAN status and information about the connected users are also available.

 

congstar as well as the manufacturer Huawei officially speak the E5180 Cube of a WLAN range of up to 250 meters. We have not achieved this value in practice. However, the signal is quite comparable to that of a classic DSL router like an AVM FRITZ! Box 7490. A mobile hotspot is much weaker. If, for example, a Huawei E5776 is only sufficient for supplying a small apartment or a hotel room, the congstar WLAN Cube can quite well cover a one-family house with wireless Internet access.

 

 

Speed Test Good

We have continuous operated the wireless hotspot over several days. Internet access was always reliably available. A restart of the router was not required to stay on reception. The two lights on the outside of the device, which on the one hand display WLAN availability and, at the very least, the current strength of the received LTE signal, is practical.

 

Over several days, we have examined the data transfer rates offered by congstar’s internet access. The provider itself provides up to 20 MBit/s in the downstream. This value was also achieved in the test, whereby the LTE signal strength also plays a role here. If only a medium reception level is displayed on the router, the data throughput also drops.

 

 

On average, we reached between 20 and 21 MBit/s in the downstream and 5 to 6.5 MBit/s in the upstream. The response times were between 17 and 25 ms. The congstar homespot therefore provided similar performance data, such as a VDSL-25 connection in the fixed network. Even the somewhat higher latencies compared to the fixed net do not make themselves noticeable with normal surfing, with the use of e-mails, fairs, etc. It may not be the case for gamers, who need the lowest possible ping times.

 

It should be borne in mind that our performance tests have only been carried out at the location in Hessian Spessart, which is registered as the usage address for the congstar Homespot. We also carried out measurements on different days and at different times of the day. The results were quite similar, with Telekom’s LTE-800 radio cell, which is available here, with a unrestricted data SIM generally providing data rates between 40 and 50 MBit/s in the downstream.

However, our results are not comparable to data rates and ping times at other sites. Depending on the number of users and the user behavior, depending on the network configuration and capacity, there can be significant differences. Above all, in cities it is quite possible that the well-developed LTE network of the Telekom has some overloading phenomena.

 

In summary, the Huawei E5180 congstar homespot is good for wireless supply at a house, but missing the 5GHz WiFi band. The Ethernet port is also good for desktop and the internet speed is also good for most cases.
