The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro was first revealed in January. Now, HUAWEI has officially launched their first 5G modem that also supports Wi-Fi 6 technology! Check out what it offers!
The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro
The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro is powered by the recently-announced Balong 5000 multi-mode 5G chipset. It therefore supports both 4G and 5G connections, as well as older 2G and 3G modes.
In addition to homes, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro can also be used by small and medium-sized enterprises for super-fast broadband access.
On a 5G network, HUAWEI showed that a 1 GB HD video clip can be downloaded within three seconds, and 8K video can be streamed smoothly without lag.
Its ability to achieve a peak transfer rate of 3.2 Gbps sets a new benchmark for home CPEs (Consumer Premises Equipment).
While those are the current transfer rates, its Balong 5000 chipset is rated for 5G download speeds of up to 4.6 Gbps at the sub-6 GHz spectrum, and up to 6.5 Gbps in the millimetre-wave spectrum. It also has a peak 4G download speed of up to 1.6 Gbps.

In addition to 5G, the HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro also supports the new Wi-Fi 6 technology. This allows it to delivers wireless speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps – 15X faster than WiFi 4 (802.11n).
It also has the world’s first “small, cross-polarised” antenna which has a unique two antenna crossing layout. This eliminates the standard 10 mm anti-interference distance between the antennas, reducing its overall size by 20%, while increasing WiFi coverage by 30% in both vertical and horizontal directions.
HUAWEI naturally threw in their HiLink smart home platform, which allows easier management of smart devices. You can even use it to build a mesh network, albeit only with other HiLink-compatible HUAWEI access points.
