China’s telecommunication giant Huawei Technologies (Huawei) has announced its NR/LTE terminal “HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro (H112-372)” for China a few days ago. The Huawei 5G CPE is in white color and is a stationary wireless LAN router called Customer Premises Equipment (Customer Premise Equipment: CPE) compatible with the 5th generation mobile communication system (5G).
The new Huawei 5G WiFi router supports 5G NR frequency bands on (TDD) 4500 (n 79) / 3700 (n 77) / 3500 (n 78) / 2500 (n 41) MHz, and 4G frequency bands are also supporting, including LTE (FDD) 2600 (B7) / 2100 (B1) / 1800 (B3) / 1500 (B32) ) / 900 (B8) / 850 (B5) / 800 (B18 / B19 / B20) / 700 (B28) MHz, and LTE (TDD) 3700 (B43) / 3500 (B42) / 2600 (B38) / 2500 (B41) / 2300 (B40) / 2000 (B34) / 1900 (B39) MHz.
The communication speed is NR at 2.33 Gbps for downlink and uplink at maximum 1.25 Gbps, and LTE corresponds to LTE DL Category 19 and LTE UE Category 13 at downlink up to 1.6 Gbps / up to 150 Mbps.
The SIM card is single SIM and the size is Nano SIM (4FF) size. It also supports wireless LAN IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz). It has to mention that the 5G WiFi router supports 802.11ax, also called WiFi 6, which would provide much faster wireless data transmission.
