Huawei unveils new 5G routers

Huawei has showcased its new 5G CPE devices at MWC 2019.

Powered by the Huawei 5G Balong 5000 chipset, the devices offer a theoretical maximum speed of 4.6Gbps, whereas their expected top speeds on a live network clock up to 3.2Gbps.

This means that a 1GB video clip can be downloaded in as little as three seconds, said Huawei.

Additionally, these devices use the latest Wi-Fi standard – Wi-Fi 6 – which allows for peak download speeds from the CPE of 4.8Gbps.

This is particularly effective for powering Huawei’s HiLink smart devices, as Wi-Fi 6 allows for multi-device access at up to four-times the speed of Wi-Fi 5.

Huawei’s 5G CPE devices cover a wide variety of scenarios:

  • The Huawei 5G CPE Pro is Huawei’s standard 5G CPE device, designed for home and small business use.
  • The Huawei 5G CPE Win supports power-over-Ethernet functionality, and is better geared for outdoor use – it is IP65 rated.
  • The Huawei 5G Mobile Wi-Fi device allows 5G mobile connectivity for users on the go, offering an 8,000mAh power bank and wireless charging.
