Today at Mobile World Congress, Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) showcased the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro, the CPE (Customer Premise Equipment) that provides ultra-high speed broadband and intelligent Dual-Link features.
First unveiled last month at an exclusive launch event, the CPE is designed to achieve stronger, “zero-distance” connectivity between people and connected machines. Powered by the Balong 5000, this router serves as a breakthrough in 5G deployment and accessibility for consumer devices worldwide.
In delivering a superior experience, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro utilizes its proprietary Balong 5000—the industry’s first 5G multi-mode modem chipset. The power of the chipset enables the router to support Sub6G full-band coverage as well as a theoretical peak performance download rate of 4.6Gbps. The actual download speed of HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro on commercial networks reaches up to 3.2Gbps.
Additionally, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro also supports commercial applications of 4G and 5G dual modes. The dual mode elements allow for the device to default to 4G, should the 5G coverage not be strong enough.
The technology-packed HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro is the most compact device currently available in the market. Equipped with dual, highly-conductive heat sinks and a streamlined, aerodynamic design, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro can support long-term, high intensity workloads with no throttling. A hole at the bottom of the CPE creates a chimney effect, effectively cooling the device by convection and improving the heat dissipation efficiency by 30 percent.
The 5G network performance speed of the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro also improves by 60 percent. As demonstrated in the press conference, an HD video clip can be downloaded in three seconds – a 21-time increase in downloading speed as compare to 4G network (Cat 4).
In addition, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro supports HUAWEI HiLink protocol – a smart home interconnection platform that offers interconnection and interworking solutions between all types of smart devices. Through HUAWEI HiLink, consumers can connect to the high speed 5G network with just one click bringing the all-scenario, intelligent life experience to consumers.
The launch of HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro signifies that Huawei CBG is ready to launch 5G products and devices. Through the commercial deployment of HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro, Huawei will further enhance its competitiveness and leadership position to bring the best 5G all-connected scenarios to all users.
“The Balong 5000 will bring a brand new human and device interaction experience. The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro will allow consumers to enjoy and experience the high speed connectivity of 5G,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei CBG. “Huawei possesses the experience in chipset, device, cloud and network, allowing us to be a strong leader in the 5G era and bringing the best all-scenario smart living experience to everyone.”
During MWC 2019, Huawei also showcased two new Balong 5000-equipped products: HUAWEI 5G CPE Win and HUAWEI 5G CPE Mobile. Together, the new Huawei 5G products provide consumers with pervasive 5G connectivity.
With continuous investments in R&D for 5G development, Huawei’s global collaboration expands to multiple ecosystem partners, international trade associations, and beyond. With 5G research centers and partnerships worldwide, Huawei and its partners actively support a single standard for 5G to support a vision of shared innovation and the emergence of a mature 5G industry.
