The success of all technological advances, whether it be Industry 4 0, the Internet of Things or smart mobility, depends entirely on one thing - fast and reliable data transfer. While this can still be ensured across short distances with appropriate cabling, developments such as autonomous driving call for something more. One solution is future 5G technology. But despite many developers’ efforts, 5G networks still aren't fully up to scratch. After innumerable trials, the Chinese tech company Huawei has made an impressive breakthrough and is now launching its 5G CPE router - the first end device for the new wireless mobile standard.
Since 2009, Huawei has invested more than USD 600 million in the research and development of 5G technologies. Available in both indoor and outdoor units, its 5G CPE router features the specially developed Balong 5G01 chipset - the world's first commercial chipset to support the 3GPP standard for 5G, reaching possible downlink speeds of up to 2.3 Gbps. What's more, the device is designed to support all frequency bands including sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave), making Huawei the first company to combine network, device and chipset functions in one end-to-end 5G solution.
