February 24, 2020, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s customer business, released the world’s first Wi-Fi 6+ 5G router in Barcelona-Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2. It is also equipped with 5G and Wi-Fi 6+ Top2 connection technology, the theoretical peak download speed of 5G is 3.6Gbps, supports up to 11 5G frequency bands, and Wi-Fi 6+ dual-band concurrent speed of 2976Mbps.
Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 can condense the two most cutting-edge connection technologies in such a compact size, which is the silent effort of countless Huawei engineers. Today, Huawei officially issued a document reviewing the development history of Huawei mobile routing.
What is mobile routing? What is the CPE? What is the advantage of Wi-Fi 6+? Take a look.
Huawei Mobile Routing, as its name suggests, is a router that can convert 5G / 4G signals into high-speed Wi-Fi. Because it can not be restricted by the geographical factors of fixed-line broadband, you only need to insert a SIM card to access the Internet, so it is called mobile routing.
Taking into account the factors such as sparse population in overseas countries, high labor costs, and the difficulty of fixed-line broadband construction, Huawei has creatively launched the world’s first LTE Cat4 4G router with a peak 4G speed of 150Mbps and Wi-Fi 4 speed of 300Mbps. Just insert the SIM card of the local operator, you can easily convert the wide coverage 4G signal into a Wi-Fi signal for families to access the Internet.
For consumers living in remote areas or areas with poor 4G signal coverage, getting a stable Internet experience has become a headache. At this time, Huawei released the first 4G router with 4 x 4 MIMO, that is, 4 antenna technology.
Compared with 2 4G receiving antennas, the 4G peak speed of the 4 antennas is doubled, and the 4G signal receiving range is expanded by 40%, which effectively solves the problem of Internet access for consumers in areas with poor 4G signal coverage. At the same time, for the first time, Huawei adopted 2CC technology, namely carrier aggregation technology, to superimpose the speed of two 4G signals to further increase the Internet speed. The peak speed of 4G is 600Mbps, and the Wi-Fi 5 dual-band concurrent speed is 1167Mbps.
This generation of Huawei mobile routing has been significantly improved in product appearance. The white body and soft color make it easier to integrate into the home environment. More importantly, starting from this generation, Huawei Mobile Routing paid more attention to ID design, and built the router from a cold Internet device into a family partner that connects people with families, people with friends, and people with people.
2.The world’s first 4 x 4 MIMO TDD-LTE 4G router was launched in 2017
This generation of Huawei Mobile Routing supports the 3.5GHz TDD-LTE 4G frequency band for the first time on the basis of 4 4G antennas. This frequency band can be adapted to more global operator networks. Its 4G peak speed is 300Mbps and Wi-Fi 4 speed is 300Mbps.
Since then, Huawei Mobile Routing has also developed a rich series and models to meet the differentiated needs of mass consumers.
3.In 2019, the world’s first 5G dual-mode router Huawei 5G CPE Pro was released
CPE stands for Customer Premise Equipment, and the Chinese name is Customer Premise Equipment. Facing the 5G era, in order to distinguish between routers supporting 5G networks and 5GHz Wi-Fi bands supported by ordinary routers, Huawei used 5G CPE Pro to name 5G routers for the first time, and sparked industry competition to follow suit.
In 2019, Huawei officially released the world’s first 5G dual-mode router, Huawei 5G CPE Pro. For the first time, it supports two 5G networking modes, NSA / SA, and is equipped with a 7nm 5G chip-Barron 5000. The theoretical peak download speed of 5G is 1.65Gbps, and the dual-band Wi-Fi 5 concurrent speed is 1167Mbps.
Its ID is inspired by ancient Greek columns and creatively uses 5G butterfly antennas and X-type Wi-Fi antennas to further improve the 5G signal receiving range and Wi-Fi coverage. Its release officially announced that the family will fully enter the 5G era!
4.Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2, the world’s first Wi-Fi 6+ 5G router in 2020
One year later, Huawei released the Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 equipped with both 5G and Wi-Fi 6+ Top2 connection technology. It supports 200MHz bandwidth carrier aggregation technology for the first time, and the theoretical peak download speed of 5G doubles to 3.6Gbps. In addition, this generation of Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 supports up to 11 5G frequency bands and is suitable for global operators’ 5G networks. Its 5G super uplink technology effectively solves the problem of poor 5G signal coverage.
The extreme speed of 5G can only be fully exerted by Wi-Fi 6, relying on Huawei Wi-Fi 6+ technology, Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2 achieves a speed increase of 1x at short distances, and wears another wall at long distances. Wi-Fi 6+ The dual-band concurrent speed is up to 2976Mbps.
It is also Huawei’s first terminal device using a magnetic dipole Wi-Fi antenna. With this patented technology, its Wi-Fi signal is transmitted and received more uniformly at 360°, ensuring the consistency and stability of the Internet experience. .
Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2, while the performance is greatly upgraded, the volume is reduced by 1/3 compared with the previous generation, and the size is less than two cans of Coke. Together with the cooling of the silent fan, it can support the continuous work of 5G services, which will open a new era of home Internet access.
