HUAWEI B525-SWiFi Router 2.4/5 GHz 786 Mbps LTE

B525 with LTE Cat6
The Huawei B525 can reach up to 300 Mbps in the downlink and up to 50 Mbps in the uplink, making it one of the fastest LTE routers on the market alongside the Huawei B5328 and the Huawei E5186. This is made possible by Carrier Aggregation, with two frequency bands, each with a maximum of 20 MHz, being bundled by the router and mobile network. The supported frequency bands may vary on the Huawei B525, but the currently predominantly offered Huawei B525s-23 version supports at least 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz. The Huawei B525 is backwards compatible with UMTS and GSM.

WLAN ac and Gigabit LAN
For connection to end devices, four gigabit LAN interfaces (type RJ-45) are available on the back of the Huawei B525. In addition, WLAN ac is supported on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, with a maximum of 786 Mbps can be achieved. To improve the mobile reception, there are two SMA-type connections behind a cover. Here, if required, an external LTE antenna can be connected.

The Huawei B525 also has an RJ-11 phone interface on the back, which can be used for VoIP and cellular phone calls. VoLTE dominated the router but apparently not, so that one is limited to CS calls (for telephony, the device changes to the 2G or 3G network). However, with the telephone function it is to be considered: individual network operators can deactivate the function or let remove the RJ-11 interface completely, as it was to be observed already in the past years with other Huawei LTE rout models.
