1. What’s the market prospect of 4G LTE CPE Router?
Although the 5G network is the general trend, the 5G technology and base station construction are not mature enough in plenty of areas. According to the research, quite a few regions including India, Indonesia, Chile, etc. are using the 4G network. Some countries like Yemen have not started adopting 4G. Even some undeveloped regions are still using 2G. Therefore, 3G/4G networks are playing an important role at present. In the following years, the demand for high-quality and low-cost 4G routers will increase.
According to the customer’s procurement situation and market research, the market for 4G CPE can’t be ignored. Every year, many operators bid for 4G LTE routers. The number of operators bidding is large and a project often requires hundreds of thousands or millions of units.
The 4G CPE takes the advantages of more traffic, faster network speed, better signal, lower cost and stronger networking. It can create a mobile sharing, free and unbounded network life for the public. The biggest feature of the 4G router is that it is completely free from the shackles of the network cable and carried flexibly. It would be the best choice for those who don’t want to subscribe to expensive broadband services or cost installation. People who always travel or are on business also can choose 4G CPE.
In addition, the 4G CPE router can be widely applied in other fields. Many distributors for security products and the FTTX industry, GPON/EPON ONU have also started to sell 4G routers. Because the market share of CPE is larger than that of optical fiber and many scenarios require the use of 4G LTE CPE.
2. Application of the 4G LTE CPE router
The IoT application of LTE CPE router IoT applications ranges from power distribution automation, CNC machine tools, thermal metering transformation, elevators and other large equipment remote monitoring in the industrial field to the self-service terminal networking, multimedia advertising remote release, and parking guidance in the commercial field. It also can be seen in daily life as the application of public bicycle systems, WiFi buses, water source monitoring, etc.
