Huawei has released its first 5G customer-premises equipment at Mobile World Congress 2018.
The company said this is the world’s first commercial terminal device supporting the 3GPP telecommunication standard for 5G.
Huawei said the self-developed Balong 5G01 chipset is at the heart of the device, which supports theoretical downlink speeds of up to 2.3Gbps.
“It supports 5G across all frequency bands, including sub-6GHz and millimeter wave to offer a complete 5G solution,” said Huawei.
The Huawei 5G CPE comes in two models:
- Low frequency 5G CPE (sub-6 GHz)
- High frequency 5G CPE (mmWave)
