Including the world’s first single-chip multi-mode modem
As part of its efforts in pushing for 5G, Huawei introduced two new products: the Balong 5000 multi-mode chipset and the Huawei 5G CPE Pro modem.
The Balong 5000 is the world’s first single-chip multi-mode modem, which means it has 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G tech all in a single chip. Its small form factor reduces latency and power consumption when exchanging data between different modes, and will significantly enhance user experience in the early stages of commercial 5G deployment.
Comparing it to last year’s Balong 5G01, the Balong 5000 can achieve higher download speeds of up to 4.6 Gbps at sub-6 GHz frequencies and up to 6.5 Gbps at the mmWave spectrum. It also supports both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) network architectures for 5G, which means it can work with different 5G architectures.
Together with the Balong 5000, Huawei also introduced the 5G CPE Pro modem. It is the first commercial 5G modem that is made for homes and small to medium-sized enterprises. The new modem also adopts Wi-Fi 6 technology, giving it the capability of delivering speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps.
