Huawei E5787 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot

A new router successor to Huawei MiFi E5786 Hotspot has appeared on the market in early summer last summer, it is the Huawei E5787, also named Huawei E5787 Mobile WiFi Touch.


Huawei E5787


The Huawei E5787 Mobile WiFi Touch is a 4G+ category 6 router, allowing a download speed of 300 Mbps and a download speed of 50 Mbps. Always broadcasting WiFi 802.11ac, it broadcasts on the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz frequencies. It is of course backwards compatible with 2G and 3G and supports 802.11 b/g/n in addition to ac.



There are 2 main novelties for this E5787 compared to its predecessor Huawei E5786.  

  1. A large 2.4-inch screen is now in front, but most importantly, it is tactile and gives access to operating and configuration menus. This functionality gives it the nickname of WiFi touch. The screen of Huawei E5786 can only show the connection status and data consumption, if users want to operate the setting for WIFI and password, they have to log in the web page to setup.


  1. Unlike the E5786, the battery of Huawei E5787 is removable. This 3000mAh battery gives 12 hours of autonomy to this router. The battery of E5786 can’t be removed.

For the rest of the characteristics, we can find more features as below:

1. Capacity of 10 simultaneous Wifi users.

2. Possibility to connect a PC via the micro-USB port.

3. The two TS-9 connectors for an external antenna.

4. With nano HPM Cortex A9 processor, it supported 4G bands are:

* LTE FDD: 1/3/5/7/8/20 (800/850/900/1800/2100/2600MHz) Note: It still lacks the 700 MHz (B28).

* LTE TDD: 38/40/41 (2300/2500/2600MHz)

5. Dimensions of 109 x 58 x 7.5mm, therefore significantly thinner than its predecessor E5786. And the weight of 155g, it’s easy to take away when on the go. 6. One micro SD card slot, connected users could share files in the SD card plugged in.




We can find the metallic border that surrounds the case, which is the high-end smartphone way. Moreover, the Huawei E5787 router is available in different colors, such as Black, White, and Silver. You will have to wait a little to acquire it, because it is available only in rare countries, but no worries, you can get unlocked Huawei E5787 from www.4gltemall.com. You don’t need worry about the compatibility because it supports many LTE 4G bands. We will take the test for Huawei Mobile WiFi Touch E5787 in near future.

Huawei B5328 4 X 4 MIMO LTE Router News

Released in at the beginning of 2016, Huawei B5328 LTE Router is only distributed to few telecom operators who wish to offer it to their customers with a 4G offer till now. As we know, it’s now available only for the network provider Mobilis in Algeria, and other carriers such as China Mobile, Vodafone are trying to test their network with the new 4 X 4 Mimo technology.

Huawei B5328 Front logo and indicators


The particularity of this B5328 LTE router is that it is one of the few devices to offer a LTE-A 4X4 MIMO technology. Based on the GCT’s GDM7243Q, the only LTE-A chip commercially available that offers 4x4 MIMO capability, enables Huawei B5328 LTE CPE with higher data rates and throughput while using limited bandwidth (“double speed” with the same limited bandwidth), which is a scarce commodity for network operators.



chipset features:

* Supports FDD-TDD LTE Cat5/6/7

* Cat5 LTE with 4x4 DL MIMO: 300Mbps DL, 75Mbps UL

* Cat6 LTE with 4x2 carrier aggregation: 300Mbps DL, 50Mbps UL

* Cat7 LTE with 4x4 MIMO or carrier aggregation with 300Mbps DL,100Mbps UL

* Supports 4x4 DL-MIMO (4 layers) and 2X2 UL-MIMO (2 layers)

* 3GPP Release 10/11-compliant

* Supports eMBMS, OTDOA, TM8/9/10

* Single RF solution for FDD and TDD LTE

* Inter/Intra carrier aggregation (class C : 20+20MHz) for DL and UL

* Enhanced iCIC inter-cell interference cancellation

* Dual processor architecture: ARM Cortex-A7 with 832MHz clock frequency. Application CPU + Modem CPU (LTE)

* On-Chip VoLTE (HD-Voice)

* SoftAP for external WiFi client



GCT GDM7243Q Semiconductor GCT GDM7243Q chipset is often used on 2X2 MIMO for telecom, which has few advantages, but its availability makes it possible to use 4X4 MIMO in near future.


Huawei B5328 interfaces


In this version Huawei B5328-155, it has a single Gigabit Ethernet port and the WiFi band is only on 2.4 GHz, which seems not enough for a high-end router, and the 4 x 4 mimo technology is only highlights. After the Algerian Internet users who have the possibility to use this B5328 router via the operator MOBILIS, Vodafone also carries out tests in 4X4 MIMO on its 4G network. And it seems that the operators in German, Switzerland and Austria are in discussions with Huawei.


Huawei B5328 accessories

Here now, the latest 4G LTE Router is Huawei E5186, which is LTE Category 6(Rel 12). After Huawei presents the B5328 LTE CPE, we would expect more similar 4G LTE Routers available in near future. Of course, the routers would do their best performance after the network carriers upgraded their networks.

Five LTE Cat6 Home/Office Routers to Recommend

More and more people are enjoying the life with 4G LTE networks, which changes our lives invisibly. Even LTE is more and more popular; many customers are demanding faster surfing speed for large data transmission or online games. And the network providers are not stopping at the current LTE cat3 and cat4 networks. Many carriers are trying to upgrade the current LTE to LTE –Advanced to meet the customers’ requirements for better experience. With the upgraded LTE networks with carrier aggregation, customers can get much faster speed on LTE cat6 than current LTE cat4. Today, we would like to recommend a few LTE Category 6 routers for home or SOHO office.



Huawei E5186


Huawei E5186 is the world’s first 4G LTE Cat6 router for LTE advanced networks. With the carrier aggregation technology, users can access internet and surfing at 300mbps download speed and 50Mbps upload. The download speed is almost double faster than that from LTE CAT4, which could achieve download speed to 150mbps. To support various LTE frequency bands from different carriers, the Huawei E5186 CPE has two sub-models now as below:

* Huawei E5186s-22a: LTE Band 1/3/7/8/20/38 (FDD 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz, TDD 2600MHz) * Huawei E5186s-61a: LTE Band 3/7/28/40 (FDD 700/1800/2600MHz TDD 2300MHz)




Of course, the 3G DC-HSPA+/UMTS and qual-band GSM networks are backward compatible. The WiFi standard is 802.11a/b/g/n/ac on dual bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz). What’s more, the Huawei E5186 could support up to 64 wireless devices to access internet through WiFi. And there are four RJ45 ports for LAN, one of which is also for WAN. Two RJ11 ports are for telephone. One USB port and one SIM card slot are available. There is also possibility to connect external antenna to the E1586 router, on the back, there are two connectors for external antennas.   Huawei E5186 is a typical 4G LTE Router and as we know, it’s the best seller of LTE Cat6 router.

Huawei E5175


Very few people know the Huawei E5175 LTE Router perhaps because it’s also not listed in Huawei official site. And we also don’t get any information about the router available for any network providers. Perhaps it’s just a test model? We can’t get the answer.




The appearance of Huawei E5175 is similar to Huawei E5186, especially the interface ports, almost copying from E5186. It’s said Huawei E5175 is presented earlier than E5186, but it’s about to end of life. The Huawei E5175 technical specifications are the same as that of E5186 router.

If you want to know more details about Huawei E5175 4G Router, welcome to click here: http://www.4gltemall.com/huawei-e5175-4g-lte-wireless-gateway.html    


Vodafone B4000


If you are familiar with Huawei wireless gateways, you may know the Vodafone B4000 is the customized Huawei E5186. The predecessor model Vodafone B3000 comes from Huawei B593s-22. On the Vodafone router, the Huawei logo is changed to Vodafone. And the firmware is customized for Vodafone. Other features and functions are completely the same as Huawei E5186.




So if you don’t like the Vodafone brand, Huawei E5186 could fully replace Vodafone B4000. If you want to know more details about Vodafone B4000, click here: http://www.4gltemall.com/vodafone-b4000-4g-lte-cat6-wifi-router.html  




ZTE is always following the steps of Huawei and presents similar products to huawei. So the appearance of ZTE MF286 somewhat looks like Huawei E5186. The interfaces in MF286 are the same to E5186. The chipset of ZTE MF286 is Qualcomm WTR3925 and MDM9230. But Huawei E5186 is on its own chipset. The highlight of ZTE MF286 is that there is an inserted battery with 3000mAh, which means user can take MF286 outdoor or on the go. Other features are similar to E5186. We usually say ZTE is copying Huawei, but we also see the innovation in ZTE products.




If you want to know more details about ZTE MF286, click here: http://www.4gltemall.com/zte-mf286-4g-lte-cat6-router.html    


ZyXEL LTE4506 


Unlike the three LTE routers above, the ZyXEL LTE4506 is in the shape of cube, which looks like Huawei E5180 LTE Cube. LTE4506 can support up to 32 wireless users. There is a micro-USB connector for charging and a Gigabit LAN port, for connecting wired devices. Frankly speaking, the design of the ZyXEL LTE4506 is cool, if you want to know more details about it, click here: http://www.4gltemall.com/zyxel-lte4506-4g-lte-cat6-router.html




We believe there will be more LTE Cat6 router available in near future, but currently the above the five LTE routers are the best for LTE advanced networks with CA. There is no doubt that Huawei is dominating this LTE advanced technology. In the above routers, Huawei E5186 is the most popular and mostly recommended. But before you get the right one, check the network compatibility first with your carriers.

Netgear LB1110 4G LTE Modem Review

At IFA 2016, Netgear had presented the two LTE modems LB1110 and LB1111, and the LB1110 is finally arrived to the test around the end of December. The LB1110 is an external LTE modem with Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 connection, but other functions such as battery operation, WLAN or a telephone interface are deliberately omitted. The Netgear LB1110 requires an external power supply, the sister model LB1111 additionally has Power over Ethernet (PoE), ie the power can be supplied directly via the Ethernet cable. In this review, you can read more about the performance from Netgear LB1110 modem.





The Netgear LB1110 modem is packed in a small cardboard box. Besides the device, there is also a short LAN cable as well as the power supply (with adapter for Europe and British plug format). Furthermore, there is a brief guide, which should help for operation.  


The Netgear LB1110 is completely made of plastic and offers some green LEDs on the front for signal reception, network status and LAN connection. At first glance the modem looks solidly processed and it makes a good impression. With dimensions of 120 x 99 x 31 mm (W x D x H), it is quite compact and can also be attached to the wall if required.





Hardware & Speed

The Netgear LB1110 modem has a single RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet port on the back. Here, a single computer can be connected directly, or the connection to a router or switch can be established. Furthermore, you will find the connection for the power supply (DC, 12V, 1A), a reset button and a power button on the back.  


The Netgear LB1110 modem allows speeds of up to 150 MBit/s in the downlink and up to 50 Mbps in the uplink via LTE Category 4. In addition to the FDD LTE frequency bands around 800, 1800 and 2600 MHz currently in use in Europe, FDD LTE is also supported on 900 MHz and TDD LTE on 2300 MHz. UMTS is supported with the data accelerator DC-HSPA+, the theoretically maximum possible speed is 42.2 Mbps in the downlink and 5.76 Mbps in the uplink. Here, the bands are supported by 900 and 2100 MHz. As a fallback, the LB1110 modem can also use Quadband GSM.


Netgear LB1111 LB1111-100EUS


In the test, the Netgear LB1110 modem with SIM cards from O2 and Telekom was used; the tariffs had no limitation of the speed. With a good UMTS reception in the network from the Telekom, about 26 MBit/s in the Downlink were possible, with O2 it reached up to 21 MBit/s. LTE was considerably slower at O2 despite a good reception with only around 7 MBit/s - here the network was certainly overloaded. The ping times were 25 milliseconds on the LTE network and 40 milliseconds on UMTS. In the Telecom LTE network at 1800 MHz, some 130 MBit/s were possible. Depending on the location, reception and network load, these values ​​vary widely, this is completely normal.   The reception via the internal antennas is good and is clearly superior to that of most smartphones. Nevertheless, it may be useful to connect an external mobile radio antenna at some locations. The LB1110 has two TS-9 connectors on the rear panel. Netgear itself provides as a passive antenna, which is also suitable for mobile use.  




Software & Operation


The Netgear LB1110 can be operated from any browser. The web interface is encrypted with a password and the PIN code for the SIM card must be entered after switching on for the first time. On request, the router remembers the PIN, so you do not have to re-enter it every time. By the way, the SIM card is inserted in a small compartment on the back of the LB1110, a MicroSIM is required, but a Nano SIM with adapter is also OK.

Netgear LB1111 LB1111-100EUS


The web interface is available in several languages, looks modern, tidy and functional. The start screen displays the most important information, such as the reception strength and the data volume consumed. On request, a tariff can also be stored and thus the data volume can be limited, if necessary, the router even sends a warning SMS as soon as the volume has been used up. The settings can be used to configure various functions, for example, it is possible to set the router so that only the UMTS network or the LTE network is used. Also, it is possible in the settings to disable the LEDs on the router when they are not needed.  


LB1111 Power over Ethernet


With LB1110, there is the sister model Netgear LB1111. Compared to the LB1110, it looks identical and offers the same functions, but it also has Power over Ethernet (PoE, ie power supply over Ethernet cable). With a PoE-capable router or switch, it is possible to operate the LB1111 modem completely without an external power supply. This is especially interesting in buildings, where there is no socket near the modem.  With an ideal placement of the modem and the power supply via PoE, one could dispense an external LTE antenna in many cases.





Conclusion: Netgear LB1110


The Netgear LB1110 modem is convincing by good reception, good speeds and easy operation thanks to modern software. The connection is stable and the status LEDs are very easy to read. If you are looking for a good LTE modem with RJ-45 LAN connection and do not want further technology such as telephone and WLAN, the LB1110 is in any case well advised.  


The only fault: even if the maximum LTE speed of 150 MBit/s in the downlink and 50 MBit/s in the uplink would be absolutely enough, Netgear would have to face the competition from other similar faster modem such as Huawei E5771 and E5770, ZTE MF903. The similar models have inserted large battery and can work on the go. The only slightly more expensive models Netgear AirCard 790 and AirCard 810 hotspots are more powerful and support higher LTE networks.
