Huawei MS2372 — LTE Stick for the Industry

USB surf sticks with LTE modem were the first devices for the first LTE networks in 2011, with which you could use the new mobile network of the fourth generation. In Europe, for example, the Samsung GT-B3740, Huawei E392u-12 and the Huawei E398 were widely used. In the meantime, at the end of 2017, LTE surf sticks in the end customer sector hardly play a role anymore. Most customers want to use a LTE hotspot with WLAN and battery for mobile use and a “real” LTE router with LAN and WLAN function for stationary use as a DSL replacement. For industrial applications, Huawei now presents a new LTE stick: Huawei MS2372.  

 

 

Huawei MS2372 Applications According to the manufacturer, the Huawei MS2372 LTE USB dongle can be used, for example, in mobile sales terminals, in vending machines, in consumption meters or in medical device. These devices require a connection to the Internet for a variety of reasons and can be upgraded with the LTE Stick as needed. For example, a remote update of certain devices is possible or a vending machine can report transactions in real time to the central office. The Huawei MS2372 seems to replace the previous old model Huawei E220 modem, which was widely used in various terminals. To support different LTE frequency bands from various network carriers, Huawei also presents many sub-models like the Huawei E3276 LTE Stick to support these networks:  

 

Huawei MS2372h-517:

* LTE FDD B1/B2/B4/B5/B7/B12/B28

* UMTS B1/B2/B4/B5

* GSM:850/900/1800/1900  

 

Huawei MS2372h-153:

* LTE FDD B1/B3/B7/B8/B20

* UMTS B1/B6/B8/B19

* GSM 850/900/1800/1900  

 

Extended temperature range For the consumer market, usual LTE modems work only in a quite limited temperature range. For the MS2372, Huawei has significantly extended this temperature range, the stick works between -20 and +55 degrees Celsius. The Huawei 4G dongle requires a power supply of 5V / 700mA for operation and is quite compact at 88mm x 28mm x 11.5mm. The weight is just under 50 grams.  

 

LTE Cat4 with 150 MBit/s The maximum speed in the LTE network is around 150 MBit/s in the downlink and 50 MBit/s in the uplink. This corresponds to LTE category 4. In addition, the stick is backwards compatible with 3G/UMTS and 2G/GSM, including the data accelerators DC-HSPA+ and EDGE. The following frequency bands are supported by the model MS2372h-153 designed for the European market:  

  • LTE: B1/B3/B7/ B8/B20
  • UMTS: B1 / B8
  • GSM: Quadband (50/900/1800/1900 MHz)

 

On the side of the USB stick, there are two connections for external antennas under one cover.  

 

Control via AT commands The Huawei MS2372 LTE stick can be controlled via AT commands, in addition to the 3GPP TS 27.007 and 27.005 standards, extended Huawei AT commands are also supported. Availability The Huawei MS2372 would be available soon around the beginning of 2018. We would take test for this new Huawei 4G dongle and show our report on www.4gltemall.com.

Summary

 

 

From the specs table, we can see the Huawei B528 and B612 router are both LTE Cat6 routers which could achieve download speed up to 300Mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps. The main difference between the Huawei B612 4G router and Huawei B528 includes:  

 

 

  1. Appearance

If you had seen the two routers, you will know the Huawei B612 looks like a traditional Huawei router such as Huawei B593 or E5186. But Huawei B528 LTE router looks like a humidifier in cylinder shape, which looks cool and like a furniture.  

 

  1. Variant model

Huawei B612 Router has two variant models supports different LTE frequency bands. The Huawei B528 has only one variant model name B528s-23a, perhaps because it’s only available for Vodafone GigaCube. We are not sure whether there will be new variant model in near future.  

 

  1. WLAN feature

Huawei B612 can provide only WiFi on single band 2.4GHz for up to 32 wirless users to connect, but Huawei B528s-23 could provide WiFi one dual-bands and support maximum up to 64 wireless users. However, Huawei B612 adopts 4 x 4 MIMO technologies for wireless connection while Huawei B528 only supports 2 x 2 MIMO.    

 

  1. Interface

Huawei B612 has more interfaces options for users, but Huawei B528 has less interfaces. If your home or office has many devices and have to connect via Ethernet cables, the Huawei B612 may be better. They both have the external antenna connectors: Huawei B612 connector type is SMA-female while Huawei B528 antenna connector type is TS-9, like the Huawei B618 LTE Router.  

 

  1. Price

The prices of Huawei B612 and Huawei B528 are very close. So if you would buy one of the two routers, you may focus on the wireless functions and the interface functions.

 

 

 

See the difference list, you may have your conclusion about the two routers and will have trouble to buy the Huawei routers.

 

HTC Presents 5G Hub Router at MWC

At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, HTC has presented a new 5G router, ​​not a new smartphone, which is out of our expection. The 5G router comes with Android user interface and is equipped with a huge screen. The 5G router chipset comes from Qualcomm.

 

 

HTC 5G router Specifications

 

The HTC 5G Hub is equipped with a 5 inch touch screen on the front. The resolution is quite rough with 1280 x 720 pixels, but for a router such a huge screen is still almost over-sized anyway. HTC promises that the 5G router is with Android 9 operating system, and can also stream movies. The output can also be made via the built-in USB-C port on the back of a TV, so you do not necessarily rely on the screen on the router. With the microSD card slot, you can also play your own content such as photos and videos on the 5G hub.

 

 

The integrated modem comes from Qualcomm, it is the model Snapdragon X50v2. The processor uses a Snapdragon 855 with 4 GB of RAM. The internal memory of the 5G Hub is 32 GB, which is sufficient for the operating system and some apps. In addition to the USB Type C connector, there is also a RJ45 Gigabit LAN connector and a connector for a power supply. However, there is no connector for external antennas, so External antennas cannot be connected.   Wi-Fi is supported on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. In addition to the current WLAN ac standard, the upcoming WLAN ad / WLAN 6 standard is also supported.

 

 

 

HTC 5G Hub frequency ranges

 

The HTC 5G Hub can use 5G both in the mmWave frequency range between 26 and 28 GHz and in the C-band frequency range between 3.4 and 3.8 GHz. The C-band, also known as band n78, will be available in Europe. Whether the HTC 5g router also supports older mobile radio standards such as LTE and UMTS, is so far unclear. Since with the Snapdragon 855 a suitable modem is installed, but can be assumed.  

 

HTC 5G Router Availability Time and Price

 

HTC brings the 5G Hub in cooperation with various network operators on the market, among other things, the 5G router is also offered in Germany at Telekom. When and at what price is still unknown. Other providers of the HTC 5G Hub are Elisa (Finland), Sunrise (Switzerland), Three (England), Telstra (Australia) and Sprint (USA). At Sprint, the 5G Hub will be available in the second quarter of 2019.

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.

It’s obvious that the Huawei Mate X is the main role at the Barcelona event MWC2019. With the Mate X, Huawei also presented some 5G gadgets such as Huawei 5G CPE Pro and Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Hotspot. Although they are not very spectacular, the useful line of innovations naturally attracts intentions at the event.

 

HUAWEI 5G Mobile WiFi Hotspot

 

Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Specifications

 

According to Huawei, the Huawei 5G Mobile Pocket Wi-Fi router has built a Balong 5000 chipset platform modem, the maximum data rate can reach 4.6 Gbit/s, which is very faster than current 4G speeds. The new 5G device supports sixth-generation Wi-Fi networks (ax), with the use of which the speed of data exchange within the network reaches 4.8 Gbit/s. Due to this, a file of 1 GB can be downloaded in just 3 seconds, that is, almost instantly.

 

 

 

 

With the support of Wi-Fi 6 (ax) HiLink technology, owners of the new Huawei 5G portable WiFi router can communicate with multiple devices within the network any data as much as four times as fast as using Wi-Fi 5 (ac). The Huawei 5G WiFi Hotspot router has a large battery pack of 8000 mAh, and it provides about 7 hours of operation in the 5G network at the highest speed. When using networks 3G and 4G LTE, this figure is increased by 2 – 3 times.

 

Huawei 5G Pocket WiFi Battery

 

The Huawei 5G Mobile Wi-Fi Portable Router supports Qi’s fast charging technology and can also be used as a stationary access point – for this you need to connect the charger via a USB Type-C connector. Also, the manufacturer would provide the antenna connectors in the Huawei 5G pocket WiFi and also introduced a touch screen that allows you to control routers with different capabilities without having to enter the “admin” via a third-party device.

 

 

 

 

Huawei 5G Mobile WiFi Router Availability and Price

 

Since Huawei mobile WiFi hotspots are always popular in thousands of users worldwide, the latest Huawei 5G WiFi router would be no doubt a selling star. However, Huawei didn’t tell when they would be available. We predict it would be available around June, 2019. And the price would not be cheap because the 5G network construction over the world is still on the way. But we would keep updating the news of this new 5G WiFi router.

Samsung Presents Galaxy S10 in 5G Version

Yesterday, Samsung has also introduced a 5G version of the S10 series in addition to the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10+ and the Galaxy S10e: the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. The 5G Galaxy S10 is one of the world’s first 5G phones and is technically based on the Galaxy S10+. As soon as the first commercial 5G networks are launched, Samsung wants to be able to deliver the right device with the Galaxy S10 5G.

 

 

 

5G modem from Samsung or Qualcomm

 

Depending on the region in which the Galaxy S10 5G is delivered, Samsung uses either a 5G modem from themselves or Qualcomm. In North America, the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 modem will be used, in the remaining regions such as Asia and Europe, the Samsung Exynos 5100 modem. In 5G operation, both the C-band (frequency range between 3.4 and 3.8 gigahertz) and the millimeter-wave range between 26 and 28 GHz are supported. Standalone 5G cannot use the Galaxy S10 5G, it only supports non-standalone (NSA) 5G.

 

 

Both modems are so-called multimode modems and allow 5G connections as well as 2G, 3G and 4G networks. In 4G LTE networks, speeds of up to 2 gigabits per second are supported in the download and 150 MBit/s in the upload via LTE Cat20.  

 

 

High-end 5G Smartphone

 

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is technically very similar to the Galaxy S10+, but comes with a slightly larger 6.7-inch display. The resolution is 1440 x 3040 pixels identical to the S10+. Another difference is with the cameras. The S10+ has a fourth camera with a so-called “Time of Flight” functionality and additionally allows a “Multi Level Bokeh Effect”. In addition, the camera allows the measurement of objects.

 

 

Like the other Galaxy S10 models, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G supports WLAN 802.11ax, also known as WLAN 6, also supports up to 1.2 gigabits per second in the downlink and uplink. The internal memory is 256 gigabytes in size and, unlike the other Galaxy S10 models, it cannot be expanded by memory card. The RAM is 8 GB in size. Availability and Price As Samsung officially announced, the Galaxy S10 5G will be launched in the summer of 2019 in Europe but earlier in Asia. Prices and an exact availability date are not yet available. According to Samsung, the following providers want to introduce the S10 5G in their product contract:

 

  • Deutsche Telekom
  • EE
  • orange
  • Sunrise
  • Swisscom
  • TIM
  • Telefonica
  • Vodafone

 

Qualcomm Unveiled Snapdragon X55 5G Chipset

Yesterday, Qualcomm introduced the second generation of its 5G modem, the Snapdragon X55. The X55 modem can use 5G in a variety of frequency ranges and allows speeds of up to 7 gigabits per second. It supports both 5G standalone networks and 5G non-standalone networks. The Snapdragon X55 modem is also backwards compatible with LTE, UMTS and GSM (4G, 3G and 2G) in the initial phase of 5G.

 

 

 

As the successor to X50, the Snapdragon X55 modem is already Qualcomm’s second 5G modem. The X55 modem is prepared for 4G / 5G spectrum sharing, allowing network operators to easily switch from LTE to 5G. The supported frequency ranges range from the millimeter-wave range (above 26 GHz) to the frequency range below 6 GHz. The range between 3.4 and 3.8 GHz used in Germany and Europe to launch 5G is also supported by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55.  

 

 

The Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 modem is also up to date in the LTE network. With LTE Cat22, up to 2.5 Gbps can be used in the fourth-generation mobile network. The prerequisite for such high speeds is of course that the network operator uses sufficient spectrum and bundles this via carrier aggregation. Even the highest possible modulation and the use of 4 × 4 MIMO significantly increases the speed.

 

 

 

First commercial handsets with the new Snapdragon X55 5G modem will hit the market in late 2019, according to Qualcomm. For the first generation of 5G smartphones, which will probably appear in mid-2019, the modem comes a little too late. It might still be worthwhile to wait a bit and not to access the very first 5G smartphones, because the first generation of new mobile modems is experience quite energy hungry and quickly outdated.  

Timetable of 5G Mobile Cell Phones

From 2019 to 2020, the top 10 cell phone manufacturers will release 5G mobile phones intensively. Even though 2020 would be the first year for 5G devices to commercially use in large scale, many manufacturers are ready to release their 5G smartphones.

Huawei would present a new P series smartphone at MWC 2019, and in 2019, Huawei would bring P30 with back four cameras, which makes it be in the first batch of 5G cell phones. Before MWC 2019, Huawei had a communication conference to release some 5G base station, 5G chipset and 5G terminals, among which, Hisilicon Kirin 980 and Balong 5000 are the main chipsets for 5G terminals.

 

 

 

With P30, Huawei also brings its 5G folding cell phone, which would be presented to the public as Huawei first 5G cell phone and folding phone on 14:00 Feb 24 in Barcelona. In addition, we will also have the possibility to see the latest 5G version of Honor V20. And the Honor V20 5G Version may adopt the same solution as Huawei P30.

 

 

Oneplus 7 + Oppo R15 + Xiaomi Mix 3 5G Version – Early 2019  

 

As the 5G terminals members of Snapdragon series, OnePlus and Oppo have a good partnership with Qualcomm. Following the OnePlus CEO Liu Jiahu sent the first twitter in 5G network environment in October 2018, Liu Jiahu also said OnePlus would launch a 5G commercial phone in Europe in Qualcomm Snapdragon technology Summit in December. And there is the possibility to launch a completely new range of products, which means OnePlus may also go the double flagship road, like Huawei and Honor.   As one of the important manufacturers in China, OPPO had achieved the signal and data link on 5G network in August in 2018. It’s said the first 5G cell phone model number is R15, but not confirmed yet.  

 

Xiaomi had announced the first 5G phone would be based on Xiaomi Mix 3. The Mix 3 5G version would adopt the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and X50 modem baseband add-on platform to fulfill the 5G connection. The 5G phones with the Snapdragon platform have pure technologies and baseband support, which are also the first batch 5G phones available in the market.

Google Pixel 4 – 2019, HTC U13 – 2019  

 

Google Pixel series are special mobile phones for making friends, not for money. However, it has gained many fans in these years. Per the past schedule, the Pixel 4 would support 5G, but no more news to get now.   Regarding HTC, it’s said the HTC U13 would be the flagship. Even though HTC didn’t tell when the U13 would be available, but they confirm U13 would focus on 5G technology.

 

 

 

Apple iPhone

 

Apple is reluctant to follow the 5G mainstream in 2019, not only 5G technology is not pure, but also Apple doesn’t have strong 5G support from its partners. So if you want to buy an iPhone, don’t wait for 5G iPhone in 2019.     From the mentioned 5G phones, we can see some manufacturers are trying to use 5G phones to change the current market decline; some are just following the mainstream to see whether there are good opportunities. Whether 2019 would be the first year of 5G phone, we will see and the market will tell.
