5G indoor CPE MC801A is ZTE’s second-generation 5G router, which has launched in MTN as its first 5G wireless router MC801A in South Africa.
In terms of appearance, MC801A won the 2019iF Design Award for its compact and exquisite appearance, unique "Nebula Ring" and streamlined runway design.
In the performance respect, MC801A uses Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 chipset. It is compatible with global 5G mainstream frequency bands, supports NSA and SA networks at the same time. Also, it supports Wi-Fi 6 technology, uses 4X4 MIMO antenna array, so that ordinary smart 4G terminals and Wi-Fi terminals can enjoy 5G high-speed service. Mesh routers can be flexibly expanded, and indoor Wi-Fi coverage can be enhanced to ensure that there are no dead ends in the room, allowing users to easily enjoy the 5G extremely fast Internet experience.
In addition, the MC801A version has a superior heat dissipation capacity, which is way better than the previous 5G MC801. The new system comes with a vertical chimney air duct, an aerodynamic self-accelerating heat dissipation, a built-in custom powerful radiator, and a core chip with thermal phase change material. Due to the improved system, as the company claims, the heat dissipation efficiency is increased by 10%.
