4G LTE CAT11 Supported

The new LTE Cube Huawei B618 is a new 4G category 11 routers from Huawei. Category 11 (3GPP rel. 12) allows peak downstream rate of 600 Mbps and 50 Mbps in upload. The category 11 specifies the aggregate of 3 carriers (256 QAM) in download for a single frequency in upload.

4*4 MIMO Feature

4×4 MIMO has already been specified in the 3GPP Release 8. It means that with exactly the same resource blocks on the air interface, the base station transmits 4 different signals (or streams) via 4 transmit antennas to one user equipment (UE). To receive the signals and benefit most, however, the UE must be equipped with 4 antennas as well. In theory, this doubles the downlink throughput per resource block compared with 2×2 MIMO. The Huawei B618 could support 2*2 MIMO and 4*4 MIMO maybe.

Wi-Fi Feature and Management

The WLAN module of Huawei B618 allows connection to up to 64 devices at the same time in the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz band. The maximum data rate is 867 Mbps (802.11 ac), the WLAN antennas are fixed in the Huawei B618 and cannot be exchanged. You also could manage the Wi-Fi connections via mobile Wi-Fi app from Huawei. Connecting to a Wi-Fi network is done by simply scanning a QR code.
