Five LTE Advanced Pro Modules to Recommend

With the development of LTE wireless technologies, more and more networks are evolving from LTE advanced to LTE advanced Pro. LTE Advanced Pro (LTE-A Pro, also known as 4.5G, 4.5G Pro, 4.9G, Pre-5G, 5G Project, and so on) is a marker of the 3GPP release 13 and 14, which is a natural evolution of Long Term Evolution (LTE) with speed up to Gbit/s level, which incorporated numerous new technologies that would be used in 5G standard, including 256QAM, Massive MIMO, LTE-Unlicensed, LTE IoT, and others to progressively evolve existing networks into 5G standard.

 

LTE-A Pro aims to significantly increase the data speeds and bandwidth available for mobile communications. It will also bring a much wider range of connected devices and platforms under a single standard. LTE-A Pro seeks to improve and optimize the capacity, performance, functionality and efficiency of LTE-A, as well as to further reduce latency, to provide a better user experience. It will also enhance the LTE platform for the delivery of new services to new markets as we move towards IoT with 5G. The key attributes that will define LTE-Advanced Pro are: > Data speeds in excess of 3Gbps (LTE-A: 1Gbps) > 640MHz of carrier bandwidth (LTE-A: 100MHz) > Latency: 2ms (LTE-A: 10ms)   Since very few LTE Advanced pro devices are available in the market, the LTE vendors are already presenting their LTE advanced Pro modules to the public and below the five LTE advanced Pro modules are recommended if your terminals are demanding high-speed internet access:

Summary

 

The specs table above shows the Optus 4G WiFi modem 800s is more advanced based on Qualcomm chipset and the support of LTE Category 9, which could achieve download speed to 450Mbps and upload speed to 100Mbps. With the 3 band Carrier Aggregation, removable battery and touchscreen, Aircard 800s seems better than Huawei 4G LTE E5786 MiFi. And they both support similar LTE Frequency bands. What’s more, the price of Aircard 800s is same as Huawei E5786 price. So if you would buy one 4G mobile hotspot from the two, Netgear Aircard 810s is recommended with higher configuration and better experience.
