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.

LTE Surf Sticks

LTE Sticks are technically radio modems, meaning little combined transmitting and receiving equipment, which operate on different frequencies.

They can be connected via the USB ports to virtually any device such as a larger netbook, laptop or home PC. The sticks are in demand, such as to use abroad, or a change to a new and faster wireless data technology, and they are easy to replace. In addition to the relatively small size and low weight, this versatility and the slight changes are the greatest advantage of the sticks.

Even with the older data radio technologies of UMTS and GSM, sticks still dominates the modem market, other solutions such as built-in modem or modem card format to be used much less frequently. For the majority of users, LTE Surfsticks will be the solution that makes mobile internet the fastest and easiest access.

The new LTE Sticks come from the Far East, currently dominate the South Korean manufacturer Samsung, LG Electronics and Pantech market, China’s Huawei tries to win over new entrants.

So the first LTE Stick was Samsung GT-B3740, which is developed by Samsung in Vodafone Brand. The next stick from Swedish-finished network operator Telia Sonera is the GT-B3710 from Samsung. Meanwhile, there is B3730, which dominated alongside LTE is UMTS and HSPA, GSM and EDGE, as well as wireless technologies. The device sends in LTE mode on the frequency 2600MHz. It is also used in the Vienna LTE network of the Austrian mobile operator A1 Telecom Austria. The B3740 is likely to be an optimized version with a similar standard.

The second LTE stick comes from Chinese mobile phone supplier, HUAWEI, it is HUAWEI E398. The device was tested in the LTE network of O2 and is now available at Telekom from the second half of 2011. In Austria, it is the mobile operator A1 Telekom Austria offered on its website.

Global Supply of LTE Sticks

There are very few data sticks, which are with wireless data LTE technology, so pure LTE Sticks have others technologies backward, such as UMTS, GSM and CDMA 2000 network to send and receive. Overall, a clear trend is emerging to stick with multi-technology, pure LTE Data sticks are shunned by the mobile operators.

The Pantech UML290, originates from South Korea, and sells for US Verizon Wireless LTE network. It’s like the stick used in Scandinavia and Austria from Samsung, sends an older and slower wireless technology on board. In the case it is spread in the U.S. CDMA 2000, and therefore he receives on 800 Mhz and 900 Mhz. For LTE reception, it is in the range of 700 MHz road.

The second stick, Verizon Wireless LG VL600 of the South Korean manufacturer LG Electronics. With LTE, it’s in the 700 MHz band travelling with the frequency used the U.S. 3G CDMA 2000 technology, it can send and receive on the 800MHz and 1900MHz band. LG Electronics also has the LD 100 model that is used in Japanese LTE network of Docomo. It also speaks several wireless data technologies, besides LTE, there is UMTS and HSPA, plug for the Japanese to travel abroad, GSM and GPRS are also included. GSM will be gradually switched off in Japanese networks.

What to look for LTE Sticks

All LTE Sticks on the market are significantly larger than the surf sticks with pure UMTS or GSM technologies; they therefore require more space on your laptop. If two or more USB ports close together, this may lead to another USB ports blocked. Therefore a rotatable mechanism for raising the stick is very useful to save some space with a bent 90 degrees stick, and most of these sticks have rotate mechanism.

Pure LTE Sticks can only be used where LTE is available. Since the LTE network is expanding coverage in many areas, it would take many years for LTE network to cover every corner. Therefore in some areas, you have to use other technologies UMTS and GSM, and the associated wireless data technologies HSPA and EDGE, to dominate the modem.

Several sticks offer external antenna connectors; one is for the older mobile technologies and one for LTE. This is an important consideration when buying, LTE will be predominantly at home or hospital use, we recommend you might install an LTE external antenna.


How Can We Benefit from 4G LTE Network?

Firstly, LTE provides average download (30 Megabits) and peak (100 Megabits) speeds, which are much higher than the current ones. Also, a substantial increase in the speed of ascent (50 Megabits), so important especially for customers of the business segments, and for all information related to the use of cloud computing.

And let us not forget that it also means lower latencies (35 m/sec) network, which is essential for new services (network games, enterprise applications...) lte speed evolution

Frequency bands It is important to know about which bands will be operated. The first, 2600 Mhz is intended for coverage in areas of high population density, it has less penetration indoors, but acquired bandwidth will provide maximum speeds (surpassing the 100 Mbps of download).

The second, acquired band is located on 800 Mhz, frequency that will allow much better penetration indoors and cover larger surfaces, so it will probably go to coverage in rural areas. The size of the band acquired will allow a maximum speed offered by less than 50 Mbps service. The availability to radiate this band probably has to wait until 2015.

The first LTE device on the market

To access services over LTE, operator had selected the modem Huawei E589 (also named HUAWEI E589u-12), which is also compatible with the current network 3G. huawei E589 SPECS New services and applications of 4G LTE
