Huawei unveiled the world’s first 5.5G router

Huawei unveiled the world’s first 5.5G router:With Huawei LampSite X, sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G wavelengths are combined to provide speeds of up to 10Gbps.

The LampSite X router from Huawei is unique in that it provides high-speed networking to expansive indoor compounds like airports and retail centres by utilising the 5.5G networking standard, which the company refers to as 5G Advanced.

Despite the fact that 5G has revolutionised public networking, issues with congestion and throughput remain, particularly in highly crowded locations.

However, LampSite X aims to be the improvement that many high-traffic areas may well welcome, offering speeds of up to 10Gbps for customers who connect with the network while consuming the least amount of energy feasible.

“The solution achieves 10Gbps experience and offers diverse capabilities, meeting consumer demands for a more premium indoor experience and realising more powerful digital productivity across various industries. It features the leanest design, simplest deployment, and lowest energy consumption.”

The 5.5G hardware itself weighs only 1kg and has a volume of under 1L, making it the smallest in the market according to Huawei.

In order to provide low energy consumption and great performance, a single LamSite X box also supports wideband wavelengths and all radio access methods. The company claims that what makes it exceptional is that it blends sub-6Ghz and mmWave 5G to accomplish its 10Gbps performance, which is particularly impressive for indoor operations.

With its fast speeds and low latency, Huawei is marketing this router for use in both consumer-focused and industrial environments, such as factories and business districts. The company promises that this router will increase productivity and efficiency.

But given the trade ban on the Chinese networking behemoth, LampSite X won’t be ready until the second half of 2024, and it’s unclear whether this technology will ever succeed in the US or Europe..
