During Huawei’s Consumer Business Product and Strategy stream, they introduced two of the world’s first WiFi 6+ capable routers, the WiFi AX3 and 5G CPE Pro 2.
The Huawei WiFi AX3 comes in either a dual-core or quad-core variant, with the latter offering stronger signals and Huawei Share compatibility. Both are capable of utilizing the latest dual-band (2.4GHz & 5GHz) WiFi 6+ standard using the Gigahome 650 chipset. The WiFi signal is also stronger thanks to the support of 160MHz frequency bandwidth and 6dB Power Spectrum Density (PSD) Gain. Controlling the network is Huawei’s Harmony OS, which tackles stability issues through systematic optimizations.
The Huawei 5G CPE Pro 2, on the other hand, is Huawei’s latest Consumer Premise Equipment, which features an upgraded Balong 5,000 modem capable of reaching up to 3.6Gbps DL speed. It supports dual-mode for both NSA and SA 5G connectivity, and support for 11 5G TDD/FDD frequency bands. Like the AX3, it can output WiFi 6+ signals capable of up to 2,400Mbps @ the 5GHz frequency, and 600Mbps @ 2.4GHz.
Huawei is yet to unveil the availability and pricing of its new routers, but the product pages are already up on Huawei’s official site.
