Huawei launches 5G chipset and CPE device
Huawei has launched its 5G multi-mode chipset Balong 5000 along with the first commercial 5G device powered by it, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro. Balong 5000 chipset supports a broad range of 5G products in addition to smartphones, including home broadband devices, vehicle-mounted devices, and 5G modules.
“The Balong 5000 will open up a whole new world to consumers,” said the CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, Richard Yu. “It will enable everything to sense and will provide the high-speed connections needed for pervasive intelligence. Powered by the Balong 5000, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro enables consumers to access networks more freely and enjoy an incredibly fast connected experience. Huawei has an integrated set of capabilities across chips, devices, cloud services, and networks. Building on these strengths, as the leader of the 5G era, we will bring an inspired, intelligent experience to global consumers in every aspect of their lives.”
With a small form factor and high degree of integration, Balong 5000 supports 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G on a single chip. It reduces latency and power consumption when exchanging data between different modes.
Powered by Balong 5000, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro supports both 4G and 5G wireless connections. On a 5G network, a 1-GB HD video clip can be downloaded within three seconds, and 8K video can be streamed smoothly without lag. Huawei 5G CPE Pro can also be used by small and medium-sized enterprises for super-fast broadband access.
