What is the MiFi Router and CPE Router?

1.The definition of MIFI

MiFi is also called Mobile WIFI Hotspot. As a portable broadband wireless device, mobile MIFI integrates the functions of a modem, a router, and an access point. The built-in modem can access a wireless signal, and the internal router can supports 10 or more users simultaneously. The modem is used to receive wireless signal, and then share this signal to other devices through its built-in router, such as our tablets, notebooks, mobile phones and other devices that support WiFi.

Maybe people will ask why we don’t use mobile phone?

There are some advantages of a MiFi over a mobile phone as hotspot WiFi:

a.Battery life: MIFI can support 6-10 hours of continuous use ,200 hours of standby time. However, our mobile can’t do that. Mobile phone hotspots can be used temporarily or occasionally. The battery will be consumed in a short time.When the battery power is exhausted, we couldn’t use the phone to do important things.

b.Stable signal: smart phones are often go offline, and MIFI’s signal is stable, which will not affect the user- experience. When a call comes in, the network will be disconnected, which will affect the experience of other terminals. If the network is disconnected at a critical moment, it may also cause certain losses.

c.Super fast Internet speed: the internet speed of smartphones will be slow because they have too many applications to deal with.

d.Support multi-user connection: Mifi can supports 10 users simultaneously.

A high performance 4G mobile hotspot device, with supporting all AP (Access Point) functions. Wherever in office, at hotel or home, during travelling, or on the way to somewhere, MiFi can build up the high speed internet access freely. Unlocked XRF5241 is with 2150mAh removable battery and 2.4GHz 1*1MIMO Up to 150Mbps. Its Wi-Fi standard max supports 10 users simultaneously.

2.The definition of CPE

CPE is called Customer Premise Equipment. CPE is really a mobile signal access device that receives mobile signals and forwards them with wireless WIFI signals. It is also a way to convert high-speed 4G or 5G signals into WiFi or LAN port. The number of signal equipment that can support simultaneous Internet access is also large.

CPE is often deployed at the customer end of the FTTX home customer service, which is used to provide integrated access to services such as wired broadband, IPTV, and VOIP for home customers. The CPE is connected to the PON transmission network and downstream to specific business equipment to complete the connection between the access network and the user equipment. Cat4 LTE CPE, outdoor 5G CPE, and 5G indoor CPE are often widely utilized in rural areas, towns, hospitals, units, factories, communities and other wireless network access, which may save the value of laying wired networks. For most foreign countries, using the CPE router will be more convenient.

SmileMbb 5G Indoor CPE with 3.5 Gbps downlink supports 5G NSA/SA & 4G. And the XZC5552 supports both 4G / 5G networks and fix-line networks, so you will get more stable and fast Wi-Fi connection once you use it. It can bring consumers an ultra wide-band Internet access experience similar to optical fiber.

3.The difference between CPE and MIFI

Both MIFI and CPE convert LTE signals into WiFi signals, which is convenient for us to access the Internet wireless by mobile phones, pads and computers. But they also have some differences:

MiFi: a.small size, easy to carry (the size is equivalent to a credit card); b.with 2150mAh battery; c. support 10 users simultaneously;d.can be used anytime, anywhere.

CPE Router: a.large size; b.fixed placement; c.without battery; d.plug and play; e.support 32 users simultaneously.
