Doubling access speed with dual 5G network convergence

June 28, 2021, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet, has rolled out its third-generation 5G Indoor CPE MC8020 at Mobile World Congress 2021.

ZTE previously revealed one of the world’s first 5G routers ZTE 5G Indoor CPE MC801 in 2018. The company’s second-generation 5G Indoor CPE MC801A was launched in 2019, winning the prestigious iF Design Award. Currently, the 5G Indoor CPE MC801A has been available in more than 30 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Product Highlights:

Supports both 5G SA and NSA modes, as well as Sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum bands.

Enables dual-path convergence of 5G and wired broadband with the exclusive zlink Boost technology, allowing dual gigabit access.

Employs the latest Wi-Fi 6 AX5400 access technology, delivering 200 percent faster access speed than that of the previous generation.

Adopts four-way omnidirectional high-gain antenna to provide a high-speed 5G network for up to 128 Wi-Fi users simultaneously.

To support the rapidly-growing need for live broadcasting, the third-generation ZTE 5G Indoor CPE MC8020 delivers high-quality 5G connectivity, tackles network congestion in complex scenarios, meets enterprise-level configuration requirements, and has consumer-friendly settings for easier smart home connectivity.
