Huawei 5G CPE Pro Review

At Mobile World Congress 2019, Huawei introduces a 5G NR router named "5G CPE Pro", the device is designed to provide neat data throughput in the fifth-generation mobile network. Up to 6.5 Gbit/s can be realized in the download and thus puts the competitors Qualcomm in the shade for the time being. Not only the sub 6GHz frequencies, but also mmWave in the range of 26 to 28 GHz are supported. By Wi-Fi 802.11ax, the data packets come in the home network fast enough on the computer. Below table shows the detail feature and specifications of the Huawei 5G CPE Pro.

 5G router with high bandwidth


With the Balong 5000, Huawei introduced a chipset that takes the lead in terms of bandwidth. Up to 6.5 Gbps are available here in the download. It is noteworthy that not only the frequencies below 6 GHz are usable. Even in the mmWave range between 26 and 28 GHz, data can be exchanged and thus ensure the high speed in perspective. The 5G CPE Huawei is one of the fastest on the market.   As one of the first devices of its kind, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro also masters both communication possibilities of the fifth network generation. While many early implementations only offer non-stand-alone (NSA), the new CPE Pro is also capable of providing a data connection through standalone (SA). At the same time, however, it is also compatible with the old mobile network such as 4G LTE. If 5G is not available, the router 5G can automatically switch to 4G LTE networks.




Cool design

In the optical design, the Chinese manufacturer has given a lot of effort. Already the decision for white piano paint evokes memories of the manufacturer from Cupertino, which is responsible for the production of the iPhones. Upright and with rounded corners, it fits easily into the household. It provides information about the current status via three status LEDs. However, the Huawei 5G CPE pro has no built-in or removable battery, so it’s not for mobile.  

WiFi 802.11ax Available

For gross data throughput rates of up to 4.8 Gbps, the WLAN provides 802.11ax. It uses the MIMO technology, which transmits over several antennas in variable frequency ranges. Up to 160 MHz of spectrum can be bundled. This ensures that the external connection can be used accordingly.  


The 5G router is now open for sale in China. And Vodafone also presents this router with tariff. If your location has 5G coverage, you can get the 5G CPE Pro to enjoy amazing 5G speeds!   [embed][/embed]


Huawei 5G CPE PRO H112-372 Launched for China

China's telecommunication giant Huawei Technologies (Huawei) has announced its NR/LTE terminal "HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro (H112-372)" for China a few days ago. The Huawei 5G CPE is in white color and is a stationary wireless LAN router called Customer Premises Equipment (Customer Premise Equipment: CPE) compatible with the 5th generation mobile communication system (5G).

The communications modem will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Huawei Technologies and will be powered by the HiSilicon Balong 5000, which was developed by HiSilicon Technologies (Shenzhen Haijin Semiconductor) in China.   The new Huawei 5G WiFi router supports 5G NR frequency bands on (TDD) 4500 (n 79) / 3700 (n 77) / 3500 (n 78) / 2500 (n 41) MHz, and 4G frequency bands are also supporting, including LTE (FDD) 2600 (B7) / 2100 (B1) / 1800 (B3) / 1500 (B32) ) / 900 (B8) / 850 (B5) / 800 (B18 / B19 / B20) / 700 (B28) MHz, and LTE (TDD) 3700 (B43) / 3500 (B42) / 2600 (B38) / 2500 (B41) / 2300 (B40) / 2000 (B34) / 1900 (B39) MHz.
The NR method is a communication method specified to satisfy the requirements of 5G in the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) of the standardization organization, and the NR method and the LTE method cooperate with a standalone (SA) in which the NR method operates alone. There is a non-stand alone (NSA) that operates as a standard, and HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro can use both stand alone and non stand alone.   The communication speed is NR at 2.33 Gbps for downlink and uplink at maximum 1.25 Gbps, and LTE corresponds to LTE DL Category 19 and LTE UE Category 13 at downlink up to 1.6 Gbps / up to 150 Mbps.
The actual communication speed varies depending on the bandwidth operated by the telecommunications carrier, the up / down ratio, the speed control, and the cell tower distance.   The SIM card is single SIM and the size is Nano SIM (4FF) size. It also supports wireless LAN IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz). It has to mention that the 5G WiFi router supports 802.11ax, also called WiFi 6, which would provide much faster wireless data transmission.   
 Here now the Huawei 5G router is for sale in many e-commerce platforms and the Huawei 5G CPE Pro price is good. As we know, the Huawei router is unlocked and open for any compatible networks. From the supported freuquency bands, we can see the new 5G router can work in most of the countries over the world.
