Huawei B593 B593U-12 4G LTE CPE Quick Setup

As the world's first 4G LTE CPE, Huawei B593 is now commonly used in many areas, but it seems Huawei B593 is used more at home or SOHO office. Even though it becomes more and more well-known, many users don't know how to set up this 4G CPE.  

 

 

The 4G LTE CPE is different from the 3G wireless router what we had used. There is no Port for Ethernet to input data. The CPE connects network via one SIM card Slot. And 4 Ethernet ports are outputting data for desktop. And two VoIP telephone ports and one battery charger port are lines with the Ethernet ports.  

 

 

Today, we have a brief introduction about how to quick setup the LTE CPE Huawei B593u-12.     First step is to plug the SIM card to Huawei B593; when you first get the device, you may don't know where to plug the SIM card, below the image will show the slot for SIM card.  

 

Then plug the power adapter and press the power button to start the device. After power on, the indicators on the front of Huawei B593 will start shinning. After few second, you could find the SSID in your PC, and then connect it through the WLAN Key on the back stick of the CPE.   After connected with the WiFi, land the home page http://192.168.1.1 and default password is admin

 

 

Then click the Setup and the management page will guide to Setup Wizard.

 

 

If the SIM card PIN is disabled, click next to Internet setting, users could choose the network mode and connection mode per users’ preference.

HUAWEI E3276 4G LTE Category 4 USB Surfstick Review

Today, we get the demo of Huawei E3276 4G LTE cat4 USB Surfstick. If we say 2012 is the beginning year of 4G LTE, 2013 should be the beginning of 4G LTE Category 4. LTE Category 4 develops from 4G LTE (also called LTE Category 3) and is more efficiency in data transmission. It could support 50% faster speed than 4G LTE Category 3 with peak download speed up to 150Mbps on FDD network. What amazing speed!  

 

 

The Huawei E3276 Cat4 LTE modem is the successor of Huawei E398 and E397, which are LTE category 3 USB modems. Huawei E3276 has been presented to public by many 4G operators all over the world. The Huawei E3276 we get is in white color, no operators' logo. It's in Huawei logo without original package box.

 

HUAWEI E3276    

 

The total design of Huawei E3276 is very cool, in vertical direction; it looks like a burning fire. On the front of Huawei E3276, there is Huawei Logo and beside logo, there is a LED indicator to tell users the connection status.

 

   

 

Just like Huawei E398, the Huawei E3276 is also in rotatable USB design, the difference between them is the there is a cap to stuck the USB for E3276, press the button, the USB could auto eject, so it's somewhat like the USB design of Huawei E397, but Huawei E398 doesn't have this feature.

 

   

 

The USB could be rotated to 2D total 180 degrees. It’s a user friendly design because it will save much space when connecting this dongle to PC, and it would help to get better signal strength.  

 

     

 

On the back of Huawei E3276, there is a stick, on which, we could see the model number Huawei E3276, Certificate information and place of origin.

 

   

 

At the below side of Huawei E3276, we could see the MicroSD card slot covers by a plastic cap. Open it, we can see there is a external antenna connector with the slot. And the other connector for pigtail is at another hole.

 

     

 

Push the back over towards to the direction to USB, the back cover could be removed from the body, and then the inner part could be seen. The Module of inner part is in plastic material, there is SIM card slot in the module. Above the module, there is the model nuber, IMEI number of Huawei E3276, and the S/N number. The model number is HUAWEI E3276s-150.

 

 

 

We get the information that HUAWEI E3276s-150 support 4G LTE FDD 800/2600MHz and 3G UMTS 900/1900/2100MHz with 2G GSM qual band 850/900/1800/1900MHz backward. And it has its partner model HUAWEI E3276s-151.  

 

In conclusion, the design of HUAWEI E3276 is cool and we believe the LTE cat4 dongle would give reliable high speed support for the users. Next time, we will have a test report for HUAWEI E3276 in near future.

HUAWEI E5372 150Mbps 4G LTE Cat4 Mobile WiFi Hotspot Review

We are glad to inform the wireless users that Huawei released a new 4G 150Mbps LTE mobile hotspot. The model is Huawei E5372 for LTE category 4. Today, let's have a look what the LTE cat4 mobile WiFi could bring us.  

 

The Huawei E5372 LTE Cat4 mobile WiFi was first presented to public a one month ago on MWC 2013. This time, it's in white color. In our memory, black color is the classic color for Huawei E5 Mobile WiFi. Per the official saying, Huawei E5372 is the smallest LTE cat4 Mobile WiFi. So even E5372 is in pocket size, it's still much smaller than its predecessors, such as Huawei E589 Mobile Pocket WiFi and Huawei E5776 LTE Cat4 Mobile Hotspot.      

 

There is a 1.45 inch TFT screen which will show the important information for Huawei E5372, it indicates the network signal strength, connection status, users connected, remaining battery, operator and SMS. There is only one button for power on and off. The one-button operation is very convenient for user, and it's friendly for user experience. These features are almost the same as Huawei E5776, the predecessor of Huawei E5372.  

 

 

We found the platform of Huawei E5372 is not Qualcomm chipset, it's Huawei own Hisilicon V7R1. But the battery of Huawei E5372 is only 1780mAh, which is only a little bit more than half of Huawei E5776 battery. The Huawei E5372 could be charged via USB through USB interface.      

 

Like other LTE Category 4 Mobile WiFi, the Huawei E5372 could support maximum download speed up to 150Mbps on FDD network and 112 Mbps download speed on TDD network. The upload speeds are 50Mbps for FDD and 10Mbps for TDD. And the Huawei E5372 supports WiFi 2 * 2 MIMO and WiFi. The WiFi spectrums are 2.4GHz and 5GHz. There are two external antenna connectors in the body of Huawei E5372.

 

 

 

There is another feature we have to mention that the Huawei E5372 could quick boot in 5 seconds, we are not sure whether the HiLink technology is applied in the LTE Cat4 mobile Hotspot, but the boot time is so short that it will highly improve the user's experience. Huawei E5372 is compatible with the usual operation system such Windows and Mac.  

 

We believe there will be many variant models for Huawei E5372, and we will review them in future. To check more new 4G LTE gadgets on www.4gltemall.com
