Mobile World Congres 2022 is in full swing over in Barcelona, one of the many manufacturers who’ve done well is OPPO. As well as launching new charging standards, they’ve also launched a 5G CPE ready to overcome NBN connectivity concerns.
What is it
The OPPO 5G CPE (Consumer Premises Equipment) T2 is a 5G base station router for your home or business. It’s intended to get the best possible connection to your connected devices while hitting some other important markers. Obviously, the stability of your connection is going to be somewhat subject to your carrier coverage as well as the device.
The T2 is a new design — from the previous iteration — that dissipates heat effectively and is made from recycled materials. It doesn’t just relay 5G signal to your Wi-Fi devices but, can become your primary router to also deliver Ethernet connectivity. The transfer speeds that the T2 are capable of aren’t hindered by the internals of the router as it’s powered by a Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM X62 5G Modem-RF system, which OPPO has worked with Qualcomm to optimize.
Connectivity to the outside world is key, that’s why the T2 utilises Smart Antenna tech:
OPPO has introduced its latest O-Reserve 2.0 smart antenna technology, which monitors signals received by 8 antennas in real time and selects 4 of these antennas based on the gain strength and signal quality to form a downlink route.
It’s an interesting looking device that won’t stand out (in a bad way) among just about any decor. How it performs in the Australian landscape with our geographic connection challenges remains to be seen.
all optus , telstra and vodafone will not allow you to use third party 5G router
when you signup for a 5G home broadband you will be forced to use their shitty 5G home broadband router
like the nokia fastmile and the new Sagemcom 5G modem
