Around the end of 2012, HUAWEI released two new 3G HSPA+ Mobile WiFi Hotspot, someone may ask, why not 4G LTE HUAWEI E5776 or HUAWEI E589? Yes, the two 4G LTE Pocket WiFi are definitely hot with fast development of 4G networks.   Today, we will not talk about the 4G mobile hotspot because for most of users, the 4G Gadgets are in high price range; they cost too much to enjoy something new. Only technology geeks are trying to follow new products. We choose HUAWEI E5756 and HUAWEI E5151 as our today’s topic because there is something special with the two models. HUAWEI E5756 VS HUAWEI E5151 First, let’s look at HUAWEI E5756 42Mbps Mobile WiFi Hotspot. It’s like its predecessor HUAWEI E587, E586, E560, has the functions as E5, but supports 10 users to share WiFi network. With USB cable, one more device could access internet. And its peak speed reach up to 42Mbps under Dual cell HSPA+ technology. These features looks much like HUAWEI E587 42Mbps Mobile Hotspot, but HUAWEI E5756 have some special features such as it would work as a mobile power bank, which incorporates battery capacity of lasting 10 hours online usage. And it could output power to many devices such as iPhone, iPad, Android tablets or Smart phones. In case, if you are lucky to get HUAWEI E5756, you will get gadget with power bank and 3G WiFi router functions 2 in 1. What amazing! HUAWEI E5756 Application at a meeting By the way, we found HUAWEI E5756 could support IPV 6, which are not compatible with by most existed network devices. So with this powerful function and practical application functions, HUAWEI E5756 would be HUAWEI new flagship model in near future. HUAWEI E5756 Applicaton at airport Then let’s look at HUAWEI E5151 WAN LAN 3G WiFi Router, it has the basic function as 3G Pocket WiFi to supports 5 users to access internet, keeping working at 4 to 5 hours with changeable battery. Peak download speed via 3G is 21Mbps. The main difference and also its key features is that there is a Ethernet port at the side this device, which means, if you are outdoors, you could take it around to let it work as a portable router; when you back home or in office, it could get connected with the Ethernet cable, then it becomes a stationary router to offer wireless signal. HUAWEI E5151 is the best partner for businessmen   With Ethernet cable, HUAWEI E5151 could support peak download speed at 100Mbps. If you are abroad for business trip, it would be better to take this one, because you don’t need to find the shop to buy SIM card, if there is Ethernet cable for network, your multiple electronics could share network simultaneously. HUAWEI E5151 Application at a hotel to connect Ethernet cable They are both in simple design and easy operation, and released for different application, but they are user friendly. Customer could choose the preferred one and enjoy the easy experience of surfing internet. In our opinion, if you have many electronics or gadgets demanding continuous power supply, it’s better to take HUAWEI E5756 Mobile Power Bank Router, but if you are a businessman who usually goes to different countries or areas, it’s better to take HUAWEI E5151 WAN LAN WiFi Router.   If you want to know more option for mobile WiFi hotspot, please visit: .


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

4 e-Gamming

It is no longer needed at home game or the game console. The high speed offered by LTE along with low latency makes this technology very attractive to enjoy the online games. It binds to the new dynamics of game servers in network, free to customers of the need to have video consoles and games, entering mode subscription to these services in the cloud.

5. Services in high definition TV and 3D Videos

In the LTE environment, TV and video services reaches its greatest exponent. The powerful low latencies and bandwidth allow video club services, video streaming and high-definition and 3D TV broadcasting develop their potential to the maximum.

6 Immersive Communications

This category refers to completely virtual Telephone services. Solutions that facilitating labor mobility, management of meetings among multi-country teams, with a realism that contributes to the good results and good relations between persons of the team. This solution, completely virtual, allows you to delegate the management of the application in order to work with it from any computer in the network: laptop, tablet, from any place where a high performance network, such as the LTE network is available.

LTE online vedio meeting with high quality but without latency

We hope that all these details serve for you to hereafter, when the term 4G or LTE will begin to be extensively mentioned, have a much clearer vision of this new step in mobile communications.
