Very weighty packaging, I mean the weight of the whole set of products, hold in the hand very feel . Because the power supply has accounted for half of the weight to go!
Huawei H6 package contains a mother route and three daughter routes, two of which are the standard version and one is the Pro version. What is the difference between the standard version and the Pro version? This is one of the queries.
The model number of the parent route is WS8000, the model number of the standard version of the daughter route is WS8500, and the model number of the Pro version of the daughter route is WS8501.
The outer package also contains the following parameters.
802.11k and v are supported by default, and 802.11r can also be checked in the system, but this r has compatibility issues, so most of the current mesh does not support r. The system has this statement inside.
Take everything out of.
First look at the power supply ah, the output power of the power supply: 52.5V/1.75A. 90W output power. The actual measurement of this set of H6 are connected and then turned on, the special machine power 18W, only connected to a Pro a standard version is 14W. 3 panels 18W, not very high power.
The mother machine has a total of 6 LAN, all support POE power, that is, up to 6 sub routing. The standby power of the mother machine is 5.2W, and the standby power of the 6 subs is estimated to be 30W. The margin of this power supply is quite large, and you can connect more powerful POE devices. But I can’t find out what the maximum power supply for a single port is!
Power size of about 14x7cm, put the weak box is more space, weak power small, I guess this power and can not put. To consider connecting the outside of the weak box, if the weak box is large, do not worry about this problem.
The size of Huawei H6 mother machine is 19.3x8cm.
The total thickness of the mother machine plus the power supply is 6cm.
The interface panel on the mother machine, with a total of 8 network ports, contains 1 WAN port, 6 LAN ports, and 1 IPTV port.
There are two network cables, one is a flat network cable, the other small round cable is a spare bar. The left side of the subrouting below is the Pro version, it seems that the appearance is the same size.
Weight of the Sub-Route Pro: 166.5 grams.
Weight of the standard version of the subrouting.
The weight difference between the two is very little, 0.5 grams. The standard version is a bit heavier, why?
Because the sub routing Pro has a cooling fan inside, the standard version does not, because there is no fan so you have to use more passive cooling material. I guess.
Back side control.
By the way, the back of this network cable can be out, you can insert your own network cable. But the size of the crystal head can not be too large, otherwise it is difficult to plug in.
Each sub-route has an output LAN, which can be connected to a computer or TV or switch can be.
Two lines of double-sided tape on the back.
Why should I use double-sided tape to install?
Because this is held outside the network port panel, conducive to heat dissipation ah. Insert the crystal head on the panel.
I took a small piece of double-sided tape, to demonstrate the effect of sticking on.
See, there are wisps of air in the middle of the location, to facilitate air circulation to achieve better heat dissipation. If installed in the 86 box, it will be poor heat dissipation resulting in high temperatures.
I have said before when dismantling Huawei AX3 Pro , AX3 pro heat generation, hot. Huawei H6 is also a wireless solution with Ax3/Pro, so the heat will not be low.
I measured the speed for a while, the maximum surface temperature of the mother machine 47 degrees, the standard version is also 47 degrees, Pro version even if the fan is running the surface temperature of up to 49 degrees. If not so “external” design, heat dissipation is very problematic, will affect the stability.
Look at the description of the configuration is as follows.
Huawei H6 parent route is equipped with 256MB RAM, 256MB ROM, and Lingxiao quad-core 1.4GHz CPU. 6 Gigabit LAN ports, one Gigabit WAN port, and one Gigabit IPTV port are provided on the parent route.
The Huawei H6 daughter route is equipped with 128MB RAM, 128MB ROM, and a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU.
Then I dismantled AX3 and AX3Pro configuration is as follows
Therefore, the H6 parent CPU is Heisi Hi5651T, quad-core 1.4GHz; all sub-routes regardless of the standard version Pro version, the CPU is Heisi Hi5651L, dual-core 1.2GHz.
I did not see the disassembly before, but also can not determine whether the Pro version of the CPU Hi5651L. because the heat is really larger than the standard version.
H6’s wireless chip is also the Hi1152 of Hesi, Xiaomi 11 connected to it at a rate of 2402Mbps.
Pro version in addition to a fan, 2.4G and 5G have a separate FEM chip, a total of four, while the standard version only two, that is: either used in 2.4G, or 5G. The description on the details page is as follows.
Huawei AX3 5G no amplifier chip, then the standard version is also no 5G amplifier it? By measuring a bar in the downstairs D point location, to see if there is a significant difference in 5G speed will know.
Broadband Telecom 300 megabit, using Xiaomi 4C, Xiaomi 10, Xiaomi 11 to test the speed, these three phones represent Wi-Fi 5, Wi-Fi 6 @80MHz, Wi-Fi 6 @160MHz. to save time and trouble, I only record the downlink data and put it on the table for easy comparison.
Each phone was measured 4 times consecutively, so let’s roughly compare. The floor plan is below. Put the subrouting in the WiIFI location (second floor) in the figure below. Then three phones are placed on the first floor of the D point location for speed measurement. Only 5G is measured, not 2.4G.
The 5G speed measurement results are as follows.
The difference is obvious, an average of 30% increase in speed, proving that the standard version of the 5G is no independent amplifier, the two amplifier chips are placed on the 2.4G RF circuit.
But the standard version of the speed is also good, a little better than many operators wifi6 routing. This is unexpected, thought to make the volume of 86 panels, the signal will be weakened some.
If you want to add H6 subrouting later, perhaps the standard version is also very adequate. pro version of the fan also has noise ah, over time will accumulate dust.
The subroutes do not need any settings, you get all the wireless parameters in the system settings of H6, these subroutes will automatically synchronize settings when connected.
You can dual-band in one, 5G Preferred, or you can set different names for each of the two bands. I am very concerned about this wireless option.
No bridging mode.
Usually this routing, AC, POE-powered all-in-one is no bridging mode.
Why Huawei AX3 Pro is now out of stock, and the price has risen to more than $ 400? Because Huawei H6 ah, the AX3 Pro discontinued, take the chip to produce the H6. This is my association to the relationship, I do not know if it is true.
Huawei H6, you can treat it as AC + AP, the mother hen is the AC controller, the child route is the AP panel, the actual situation is indeed the same. The current support 2x2mimo 160MHz, only Huawei H6, the future H3C will have a 2 × 2 160MHz AP, IPQ5000 CPU plus a new Qualcomm 5G chip, which is the chip used in TP-LINK. The model number is not known!
Is the Huawei H6 worth buying? Each product has its own positioning and consumer group. If you think the above is suitable for you and can accept its price, it is right to choose it.
