Huawei E5186 VS Huawei B715 LTE-A Router

With the development of LTE networks, LTE Advanced is now becoming the mainstream. So the LTE-A WiFi Routers(https://www.4gltemall.com/4g-wireless-router.html) are more and more popular, which would provide faster speed than that on LTE category 3 or LTE category 4. Huawei E5186 is the world’s first LTE-A router and was very popular in 2016 and 2017. Now the new upgraded Huawei B715 router is available. In this article, we will compare Huawei E5186 and B715 router to see what the difference between the two routers is and which one is better.

Appearance and Interfaces

Since Huawei LTE CPE E5186(https://www.4gltemall.com/huawei-e5186-4g-cat6-802-11ac-lte-cpe.html) was popular in Europe and Australia in past two years, many people may know it well. Like many other Huawei stationary routers, there are few indicators on the front, such as Power, Mode, WiFi, Voice, Signal. And Huawei logo is in the middle front face. On the back, there are 4 LAN ports (one for LAN/WAN), two RJ11 Telephone port, and USB 2.0 port available. The power switch on/off button is also lined with the interfaces. Huawei Router B715 also has 4 LAN ports (One for LAN/WAN), but it has only one telephone port with the USB 2.0 port. They both use Micro SIM card size. The difference is that the SIM card of Huawei E5186 is located on the edge side while Huawei B715 router has the SIM card slot at the bottom. And they both have two SMA connectors for an external antenna. If you would buy 4G LTE Antenna with two SMA connectors(http://www.4gltemall.com/4g-lte-outdoor-antenna-2-x-sma-connectors.html), you can switch the internal antenna to external antenna in the web interface.

Specs and variant models

The predecessor Huawei B593 LTE router has more than 10 variant models. Unlike Huawei 4G CPE B593(https://www.4gltemall.com/huawei-b593-4g-lte-cpe-industrial-wireless-router.html), Huawei E5186 has two variant models: Huawei E5186s-61a and E5186s-22a, even though it’s available for two years. The Huawei B715 was presented to market since the end of 2017, so it has only one sub-model Huawei B715s-23c.
