HUAWEI E392 4G LTE Stick

The latest LTE stick E392 is from the Chinese manufacturer Huawei, as one of the most popular and best 4G modems, HUAWEI E392 is available for many operators worldwide. Based on reliable network compatibility, HUAWEI E392 is very good 4G Dongle for user. More about the strengths, key features and other relevant characters can be found below for E392 LTE Modem.

 

 

 

LTE features and characteristics of the HUAWEI E392

Manufacturer and type designation E392 (Huawei) Download rate 100 Mbit/s Upload rate 50 Mbit/s Supported LTE bands LTE 800/900/1800/2100 and 2600MHz backward compatible with: GPRS, EDGE, UMTS (2100/900 MHz), DC-HSPA+ / HSPA+ and HSDPA, GSM frequencies 850/900/1800/1900MHz (Quad-band) MIMO Support: MIMO 2x2 Connector for external antenna yes, 2 antenna connector( TS-9 is present) LTE category: LTE Category 3 (3GPP Release 8) modem Chipset MDM9200 Qualcomm Other Dimensions (LxWxH) (W x H x D) 14mm x 35mm x100mm and 40 grams USB standard USB 2.0 Memory card expansion Yes, MicroSD up to 32 GB Compatible Operating Systems Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS (10.5) Review E392 Review Manual PDF unfortunately not yet available online    

 

HUAWEI E392 Not available in Germany  

 

So far, Huawei is the major vendor for LTE and had supplied the major LTE network operators in Germany. Previously, HUAWEI had supplied the Speed Stick LTE for Telekom, and the K5005 for Vodafone, they are from the factory modem named Huawei E398. HUAWEI E392 is actually not a typo, it’s a newer model with a lower number than the older model E398.  The original HUAWEI E392 4G Stick (without logo of Vodafone or Telekom) so far is not available in Germany. Users could get it from 4gltemall.com . The compact USB stick is also LTE Category 3 USB Stick and could completely replace HUAWEI E398.      

 

The stick E392 supports casually pretty much everything that is common to worldwide radio standards. In LTE (4G), E392 stick supports the frequency bands 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. Here, in Germany rather LTE800, 1800 and 2600 are relevant. So the HUAWEI E392 could work with other European countries 4G networks. Also the 3G spectrum is almost completely covered. The E392 supports UMTS at 900,1900 and 2100 MHz in the standard DC-HSPA+/ HSPA+/ HSDPA and HSUPA. In the 2G networks users can access in the bands GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz (Quad-band).

 

Based on the LTE technology, the E392 could transmit data with both FDD and TDD. These are two different duplex methods. For FDD (frequency division duplex), which is common in Germany, there are 2 separate frequency bands to use to send and receive data simultaneously. For TDD (time division duplex), the sending and receiving transmitted on the same frequency band, but slightly delayed. FDD is to be found mainly in Asia. E-Plus also experimented with the technology, and this could perhaps bring in the future for use in Germany.    

 

 

Anyone who uses a mobile LTE deal can theoretically explore the full power of the stick. This is a 100 Mbps stick for the download and it can be transmitted with a maximum of 50 Mbps. The HUAWEI E392 has provided two slots (MIMO) for connecting an external antenna. This often brings significant advantages in weak reception areas. The expandability via microSD card (up to 32GB) is now practically available. At just 40 grams of weight is also quite easy to take in hand or pocket.    

 

Conclusion  

 

The Huawei E392 is the perfect travel companion based on the huge range of supported standards. Those who usually travel the world will never be disappointed.

Vodafone Launch LTE Category 4 Stick

Vodafone offers LTE network now speeds up to 150 megabits per second (LTE Category 4). The speeds are initially available in the cities of Dusseldorf, Munich, Dortmund and Dresden, but are offered in the coming weeks in other cities. It is important to note that the 150 Mbit/s can be achieved only through LTE2600, in the well-developed network LTE800 only about 50 Mbit/s are possible. The smartphone tariffs and data tariff through Vodafone Mobile Internet Flat 50.0 can use the higher speed at no extra charge.  

 

The hardware for Vodafone is from Chinese manufacturer Huawei. As the first smartphone with LTE Category 4 is the Huawei Ascend P2 in the Vodafone shops, the first USB surf stick with LTE Category 4 is the Vodafone K5150H, which is also manufactured by Huawei. Might come in the next few weeks to other smart phones and modems, it is speculated, that the iPhone 5S (or whatever it is called) already support LTE Category 4.

 

 

Many of the customers may of course ask the meaning of 150 Mbit/s whom you look at the availability and the rates. My opinion: on the one hand, it is for Vodafone a great marketing tool for some users, it is certainly important to be able, at least theoretically reach 150 Mbit/s. On the other hand, the total capacity will be increased so that more people get good data rates simultaneously. And since I see the true sense: in places where currently LTE2600 is used, is expected anyway with a heavy load of networks.  

 

 

In the coming days and weeks, the Huawei E3276 4G LTE Category 4 Surfstick will come available, and we will take a few tests on the Vodafone 4G network, so that data rates are achievable in reality. And we will have a clear review about the 4G LTE Category 4 network from Vodafone.

ZTE MF822 4G Modem VS ZTE MF823 4G Aircard

Since more and more people are using 4G network for their home or office, they improve the communication efficiency through high network connection speed. As one of the important telecom equipment sipplier, ZTE had releases many 4G Aircards for various operators. And more and more people know ZTE and ZTE 4G modems.    

 

ZTE MF822 and MF823 are two of the hot 4G dongles. ZTE MF823 is the world's slimmest 4G USB dongle. Due to the compacity requirement, the inner part of a 4G modem usually contains more contents so as to fulfill more functions and high demand for network. This feature makes 4G dongle in bigger body than 3G modems. ZTE optimized this feature and let MF823 in slim size, actually, some predecessor model of ZTE MF823 is also very big, many users feedback they don't like the big body..

 

 

 

 

ZTE MF823 4G USB Stick is now available for O2 contract, the O2 LTE USB 4G could support 4G LTE FDD bands 3/7/8/20 (800/900/1800/2600MHz), which is for Germany 4G network. However, the unlocked ZTE MF823 would in other European countries, such France, Portugal, UK, Switzerland, Netherlands and Finland. Most of the 4G network frequency bands are similar, which makes the roam of ZTE MF823 come true. What's more, ZTE Mf823 could work with most 4G operators in Asia and Middle East.    

 

By the way, unlike the first generation 4G dongle from ZTE, MF823 is in compact USB design, the USB can't rotate. The other model ZTE MF822 is one special one, it's a 4G USB Modem for North America. It could support 4G LTE frequency band 4 and band 7 (1700/2100/2600MHz), which is mostly deployed in Canada and USA. ZTE MF822 is already available for Canada operator "Rogers". To work with Rogers, the FCC certificate is necessary for the device. As we know, ZTE MF822 is the only model that combines 4G band 4 and band 7. So unlocked ZTE MF822 could work in Canada and also roam to work with some operators in USA. Frankly speaking, ZTE MF822 could also work with the operators in Asia and Europe who provider the LTE band 7. So MF822 is also powerful in the compatibility with global operators.

 

   

 

ZTE MF823 and MF822 are not brother models, but they are both LTE category 3 USB modem. They both support the peak download speed up to 100Mbps and upload speed up to 50Mbps. The speeds are amazing for the user to trip or surf outdoor, if you want unlock MF823 or MF822, welcome to visit http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-usb-modem/zte-4g-lte-modem.html .
