Huawei finally launches their 5G multimode chipset along with the 5G CPE Pro (the 5G device which powers the Balong 5000, among others) which will be formally introduced at Barcelona, Spain during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 event.
The 5G era
“The Balong 5000 will open up a whole new world to consumers. It will enable everything to sense and will provide the high-speed connections needed for pervasive intelligence.” says the CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, Richard Yu as he introduces the 5G’s leading device.
True enough, a 5G network provides the world’s fastest wireless connection for smartphones, but it doesn’t just limit itself to the hand-held phones themselves; rather, it extends towards broadband deices, vehicle mounted devices, and the 5G modules so that one can enjoy this type of high-speed service at home, in the office, or on the go.
The Balong 5000 supports 2G, 3G, 4G, and of course, 5G on a single chip and can achieve download speeds up to 4.6 Gigabytes per second (Gbps) with a sub-6 GHz (low-frequency bands, the main spectrum for 5G). It is also the first chipset to perform 5G download speeds to industry benchmarks.
As part of the many ‘firsts’ the Balong 5000 offers as the leading 5G device, it is also the first chipset that supports Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) network architecture. NSA architecture is built on top of 4G LTE networks, while the SA will have its own independent architecture.
The Huawei 5G CPE Pro
The company is the pioneer when it comes to 5G, commencing their research and development as early as 2009. It is currently the only company in the industry who can provide end-to-end 5G systems.
The 5G CPE Pro support both 4G and 5G (wireless) connections and delivers speeds of up to 4.8 Gigabytes per second. For example you want to stream an 8K video or download a 1GB video clip with a 5G network, you could watch the video smoothly without lags and the download period will be done in a manner of seconds.
The newly released chipset marks an era of a better future when it comes to the speed of wireless connection. What can you say about Huawei’s 5G devices?
