Telekom LTE Speedport B390S-2 4G Router

HUAWEI B392s-2 4G router is customized to provide LTE service for Gemany carries Telekom and it’s named “LTE Speedport“. The LTE Speedport B390s-2 is from the manufacturer Huawei. The classic appearance in black case is an LTE modem router with WLAN. Below is the specification and general review of HUAWEI B390s-2.

Behind the Speedport LTE, it’s indicated that the model brand HUAWEI and model number B390s-2. The integrated LTE modem (4G) is only capable of the LTE band 20 (800 MHz). The Uplink frequency is 832-862MHz and downlink frequency is 791-821 MHz. The supported bandwidth is 10 MHz. So\ the router is uniquely determined only for rural use. The chipsetHiSilicon Hi6910” was installed.




Unfortunately, the router does not have a PBX. For Germany Telekom, this feature may be a disadvantage. Because in LTE tariff “Call & Surf via Funk “is an analog telephone port (optional ISDN) including fast network speed. So you need no additional hardware.





For the construction of the home network, 4 LAN ports can be used at the LTE speed port B390s-2. If you prefer to connect wirelessly, user can rely on the WLAN standards IEEE 802.11 b/g, which allows up to 54 Mbit/s data transfer rate. The latest “N” standard is unfortunately not supported, nor as 5 GHz Wi-Fi. This should hopefully be supported with the upgraded model. The HUAWEI B593u-12 provides as significantly Higher speed to 100Mbps. And the encryption method can be chosen between WEP, WPA and WPA2 as usual.



Extra information:


The Telekom Speedport LTE is almost half as much as the technical, virtually identical to Vodafone B1000 4G Router. The weight is only 424 grams instead of 900 grams. The dimensions of the router are 195 x 169 x 64 mm (width x height x depth). Anyhow, it’s a reliable wireless router for building a home or office network.


4G LTE Router

An LTE Router is technically a wireless modem, so a small transmitting and receiving station, which is designed for the LTE wireless data technology.

Unlike the USB Stick, which can only have one device connected to the high speed data radio network, the router uses several computers simultaneously. LTE Router is in two versions, most of them use it as a stationary device, which allows you to build a home or office WiFi network, there are also mobile devices that provides the same services when travelling.

In some places over the world, the LTE network is first built in areas where there is no high speed internet at speeds exceeding one megabit per second. LTE is thus used only once as a steady replacement for fast internet access and in the second step as fast mobile technology. Therefore LTE router was firstly users as LTE modems as typical stationary applications.

LTE Router Telekom – Germany Forward World

It is therefore not too surprising that Telekom was able to present their LTE Router to public as the world’s first mobile operator. At theoretical maximum speeds creates the telecom router 50 megabits per second, when download data at 10mbps when sending (uploading). The PC or laptop to wireless via WLAN (standard 802.11b/g) or wired (standard: IEEE 802.3/802.3u) can be connected. The router is sold by Telecom under the name Speedport LTE, there are for the LTE Speedport B390 from the Chinese manufacturer HUAWEI.

At the Munich mobile operator Telefonica(O2), however, is a unit of Germany production in the sample phase, a Fritz Box by AVM Berlin. The LTE modem with a theoretical top speed of 100megabits per second and receive data at up to 50Mbit/s transmit data. LTE fritz box transmits in two frequency bands: 800Mhz and 2600MHz band. So the frequencies are provided in Germany to LTE.


Routers work their way up

Except for the special case of Germany, LTE is built around the world from the beginning as a fast mobile Internet access. Therefore, mobile radio modems as the stick in the other countries are the first choice. Routers, which are mostly used in a stationary come, much later on the market.


What should be considered when buying LTE ROUTERS?

A router is used for multiple computers at the same time to be given an access to the internet. Regarding the wireless data rate, the more subscribers logged, i.e. a transmission tower and the more participants at a base station, the slower the data transmission. These fluctuating velocity, which never reached the heights that are announced in the mobile advertising, the user of a router must then share with each other again. The more devices via the router is active, the slower the speed of each computer.

Those who want to obtain high speeds with LTE will take a USB Stick per unit, and then of course, a monthly fee occurs per device. Who wants to pay for the whole family or shared only a monthly subscription, can take a router, then of course move slowly, if at the same time invite the children on their computer music from the net.

A second criterion for the selection of the router is the question of whether it will be used stationary or mobile. If it is used stationary, it is enough perhaps, if he is only capable of wireless data LTE technology. But when on the move, it should absolutely dominate the other popular wireless technologies in Germany, data from the GSM network and UMTS network, IE GPRS, EDGE and HSPA on board.

If the LTE connection be reasonably equivalent DSL replacement, your router can be used as a telephone at the same time.


It would be useful for a router also with an external antenna connector, which can be used in peripheral locations of masts improve the weak radio signal. This then ensures a faster transfer. Such antennas are in the consumer Internet, sometimes in the shop of the LTE party.
