B2000 = Huawei B593
Following the Vodafone B1000, B2000 is with improved hardware based on support from the Chinese manufacturer Huawei. The appearance of B2000 looks like the ” Speedbox LTE “by Telekom, they are both from the original model Huawei B593u-12. With the demand from the operator, they adapted to the design for the respective mobile provider and logo. Thus, the B2000 from Vodafone comes in a white gown, while Telekom is focusing on noble black.
More power with LTE
First, the positive features with improved LTE attract eyes. While the B1000 “only” supported up to 50 Mbit/s, the B2000 now offers full support of up to 100 Mbps download speed and 50 Mbps upload transmission. The data is based on perfect network reception conditions. Huawei has also broadened the network support on Vodafone B2000. Instead of only on the LTE800 band, the B2000 can now also be used for LTE 2.6GHz (1.8 GHz would possibly be available after later firmware update). With backward compatible with 3G or 2G networks, when LTE is not available, it switches to HSPA, UMST, GSM or necessary. But for the B1000, this feature was not yet operational. Two external antennas can be connected via SMA connector to B2000 in case that the local reception conditions are not sufficient. A new feature is the telephone support, which is not supported by B1000.
Telephone and WLAN
Vodafone B2000 is the first time to bring telephones connection. If using B1000 Router, you had to combine with a DSL router to set up an LTE phone system or analog. B2000 LTE Router also supports VOIP, there are 2 RJ11 telephone interface. Local wireless networks can now be operated with the contemporary 802.11n WLAN standard with the B2000.
