HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro - Huawei's First Commercial 5G router

At the Mobile World Congress, Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) presented the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro, a CPE (Customer Premise Equipment) unit that provides ultra-fast broadband speeds, as well as Dual-link functions. This new Huawei 5G Router is designed to achieve more robust "zero distance" connectivity between users and connected equipment. Powered by the Balong 5000, this 5G WiFi router is a breakthrough in the extension and accessibility of 5G technology for consumers around the world.

 

 

Developer by Huawei, the Balong 5000 is the world's first 5G multimodal chipset modem. The power of this chipset allows the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro to be the first with support for 4G and 5G commercial applications in dual modes. It is the first chipset to have the capacity to complete industry requirements at maximum 5G download speeds. Its dual mode functions allow it to operate by default in 4G when the 5G coverage is not strong enough.

 

"Huawei's dedication to its research and development has driven the advancement of technology and connectivity from the beginning, so we have made progress, as well as the leadership of the 5G sector from its early stages," said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group. "We started our exploration and investment in 5G technology since 2009, and that is why today we are ready to welcome the new 5G era." We are committed to the development of intelligent systems in all sectors."

 

 

To ensure that the demands for access to networks and consumer connectivity are met, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro uses fiber-like technology with speeds up to 3.2Gbps in commercial networks, to be compatible with ultra high definition visual communications, as well as powerful multimedia interactions. Additionally, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro uses a dedicated video channel as well as video game acceleration channel technology, which means that the performance will be the best possible even in situations of multimedia in 8K resolution or in Virtual Reality games.

 

 

The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro sets the standards for mobile spaces, as it is compatible with Wi-Fi 6 technology, also known as 802.11ax. The Huawei WiFi Router allows next-generation Wi-Fi speeds and connectivity, and is designed to operate at the best speeds in any situation. Some extra benefits are: better data transfer speeds, greater capacity and efficiency. Thanks to all this, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro supports WLAN download speeds of up to 4.8Gbps, which is 15 times faster than the 300Mbps of Wi-Fi 4 technology (802.11n, 2 × 2 MIMO).

 

 

Designed to receive better signals, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro is the world's first "small cross-polarized" type antenna that minimizes auto interference effectively. Thanks to its unique design of two crossed antennas, the standard anti-interference distance of 10mm between the antennas has been eliminated, reducing the size of the structure by 20%, and increasing the Wi-Fi coverage by 30%, in both directions vertical as horizontal.

Quectel EP06 LTE Cat6 Module

The Quectel EP06 is an LTE Category 6 module, which allows downstream speeds up to 300Mbps and upstream speeds up to 50Mbps. In Mini PCIe form factor, Quectel EP06 could be easily mounted in an LTE broadband Router with a port type such as ZBT-WE826T and MTK MT7623. Since more and more LTE advanced Pro modules available now, the EP06 card is in good price now based on the main features below:

 

 

2 frequency band aggregation in most regions (depending on model):

  • Support UMTS/HSPA+ besides LTE
  • Support GNSS, GPS with dedicated antenna port
  • Support DFOTA, eCall and DTMF
  • Support MIMO technology

 

 

Among which, the 2 antenna ports and the GNSS port are in Ipex format. There are several version of this card such as EP06-E, EP06-A, EP06-LA, EP06-APAC etc…

 

 

The Quectel EP06-E version could support following frequency bands:

  • LTE-FDD B1/B3/B5/B7/B8/B20/B28/B32
  • LTE-TDD B38/B40/B41
  • The 2AC aggregation available on:
  • B1 + B1/B5/B8/B20/B28
  • B3 + B3/B5/B7/B8/B20/B28
  • B7 + B5/B7/B8/B20/B28
  • B20 + B32
  • B38 + B38
  • B40 + B40
  • B41 +B41

 

 

Like other Quectel 4G LTE Modules, the EP06 module could be controlled by AT commands, which is documented by the manufacturer. A certain mastery of the subject is necessary, but if you have acquired your router box under OpenWRT or ROOter, it is that you have at least knowledge about it. And this will allow you to configure it with little opinions.  

 

The Quectel EP06 card is basically designed for the M2M industrial market, so it meets the standards of this market. In particular, it supports the firmware update via DFOTA from an FTP server for example.

Huawei Launched 5G Chipset and 5G CPE Pro Router

Huawei officially launched the multi-mode 5G chipset called Balong 5000 and was first used on the Huawei 5G CPE Pro router. The perfect combination of these two products will bring the world's fastest wireless connection speed not only on smartphones but also for larger spaces like houses, offices and other large spaces.

 

 

Balong 5000: Start for the 5G era   

 

The Balong 5000 chipset is expected to help Huawei formally open the era for leading advanced 5G technology. In addition, the Balong 5000 chipset also provides optimal support on a range of other 5G products, such as home broadband network equipment, car-mounted devices and 5G modules. Thus, Balong 5000 will help consumers have the opportunity to experience 5G completely new in many different usage situations.  

 

With a compact design (SFF) and a high level of integration, Balong 5000 supports 2G, 3G, 4G and even 5G on a single chip. This will minimize the latency and power consumption when transferring data between different modes, and significantly improve the user experience in the early stages of 5G deployment. Balong 5000 marked a big step forward for the Balong chipset series.

 

 

On the market, Balong 5000 is the first chip for download speed reaching 5G standard. In Sub-6 GHz band (low operating frequency, main frequency used for 5G), Balong 5000 can achieve download speeds up to 4.6 Gbps. In the mmWave spectrum band (high operating frequency, used for extended spectrum for 5G), Balong can achieve download speed of 6.5 Gbps - 10 times faster than the leading 4G LTE router in the current market.  

 

Besides, Balong 5000 is also the first chip in the world to support both independent network architecture (SA) and non-independent (NSA). With a non-independent form, 5G network architecture is built on 4G LTE network platform. Meanwhile, the independent form, as the name suggests, will have its own architecture. Balong 5000 can flexibly meet different requirements from users and operators in connecting equipment throughout the development stages of 5G.  

 

Moreover, Balong 5000 is also the world's first multi-mode chip that supports the V2X protocol (universal connection method), providing a reliable and low-latency solution for connected media. Huawei's 5G smartphones using Balong 5000 will be launched at the Global Mobile Exhibition (MWC) in Barcelona this year.  

 

Huawei 5G CPE Pro – Huawei First Commercial 5G Router  

 

Based on the Balong 5000, Huawei 5G CPE Pro router supports both 4G and 5G connections. With 5G network, a 1GB HD video clip can be downloaded in just 3 seconds. 8K format videos can also be played smoothly, without interruption. This set new standards for home CPE equipment. In addition, the Huawei 5G CPE Router can also be used for small and medium enterprises, with fast broadband Internet access speed.

 

 

  Applying new generation 6 Wi-Fi technology, Huawei 5G CPE Pro router can provides speeds up to 4.8 Gbps. This is the first 5G CPE to support Huawei HiLink protocol, bringing smart home ecosystem (smart home) into the 5G era.

 

As a pioneer in 5G technology, Huawei has started to research and develop 5G since 2009, currently the only company on the market that can provide all devices for 5G networks. Huawei has more than 5,700 engineers working in the R&D department, including more than 500 network experts. In total, Huawei has established 11 creative cooperation centers for the 5G solution globally.
