Huawei knows a lot about the network business, so it's no wonder that local operators often rely on solutions from this company. Based on the LTE CatID 11(, the redesigned router B618s-22d is particularly future-proof. Up to 600 Mbit/s can be achieved in the download, in the upload a maximum of 50 Mbit/s is possible. To ensure good 4G reception, Huawei has integrated the multi-antenna technology 4 4 MIMO. However, if the LTE network is not available, the data can also be transmitted via HSPA with a peak bandwidth of 42.2 Mbit/s. Backward compatibility with 2G radio (GSM / GPRS) finally provides the last straw in mobile communications. Regarding the LTE frequency bands(, the Speedbox LTE IV covers all relevant frequency bands on B1, B3, B7, B8, B20.

Interfaces of the Speedbox LTE IV

A good LTE reception at the router is of course only half the task, the data packets must also be forwarded accordingly quickly and efficiently to the terminals. With the Wifi connection 802.11 ac, smartphones, tablets and notebooks can benefit from a fast connection. Thanks to dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), up to 1.9 Gbit/s are possible. Alternatively, an Ethernet connection is available via two Gigabit-capable LAN ports. In terms of USB, the Telekom has upgraded with his variant. The original model "Huawei B618s-22d" comes only with a USB port and high-quality telephone is also possible with this router, however, the Speedbox LTE IV gets with only two LAN ports. A telephone system does not exist, but the Huawei B618 router( is originally VoLTE- compatible and can handle VoIP. The Telekom Speedbox LTE IV has cut the telephone function.

Special features of the Speedbox LTE IV

If the reception is not sufficient, the buyer can use an external antenna solution. The SIM card slot is a bit out of date and comes in the micro-SIM version. If necessary, an adapter must be used. An integrated firewall provides the necessary security, and the router can be configured via a web interface.

The package description consists of a plug-in power supply, a LAN cable and a quick start guide. The maximum power consumption of the Speedbox LTE IV is 24 watts. The price of Speedbox LTE IV is not cheap now. If you want to get an unlocked device, we suggest you take the original Huawei B618s-22d with the WAN & LAN ports, and the USB & VoIP telephone ports.
