With 11 x 7 x 7 centimeters and 250 grams in weight, the A1 Internet box 4G/LTE E5180 is portable enough to be used as a mobile LTE router. The micro-SIM card comes in a slot on the bottom of the unit. In addition to the technical specifications, the design attracts the eyes. It is probably no exaggeration to say that Huawei E5180 is the currently most fashionable LTE router in the world.
With the support LTE Category 4 and provided an appropriate collective as well as a developed network, Huawei E5180 Cube could achieve download speeds of up to 150 Mbit/s and 50 Mbit/s speeds for upload at 800, 1,800 and 2,600MHz. If no LTE network available, thanks to the support of DC-HSPA+, the E5180 Cube could reach download speed up to 42 Mbit/s. The only drawback that we could find in the router: It has incomprehensibly no connections or ports for external antennas. Therefore, one should keep a close eye on reception quality. If the signal is weak, you should move the location of the cube.
Up to 32 devices in the house can be supplied with the A1 Internet box 4G/LTE E5180 via WLAN. The connection is elegantly solved: By pressing the blue backlit lid of the box, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n is activated. Huawei promises a wireless range of up to 250 meters with a possible maximum speed of 300 Mbit/s.
At the same time, the cover also serves as a WPS button, with the click of a button easily and quickly WPS encryption is built (WPA and WPA2 are also supported). The A1 E5180 dominated UPnP (Universal Plug & Play) and is also protected by an integrated firewall.
For wired Internet connections, the E5180 has only one Ethernet port, here you would already want multiple ports. On the back there are the RJ45 output, the RJ11 port for an analog phone or fax machine as well as the connection for the 12-volt power adapter.
