Huawei’s outdoor CPE Lite won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 for its high-quality design, high integration, and simple and intuitive installation experience.

It is the second time in a row that Huawei outdoor CPE products have won this prestigious award, which is widely regarded as the “Oscar” of the design industry. This demonstrates the unwavering pursuit of Huawei’s outdoor CPE family in achieving a high quality and user-friendly design that enables perfect adaptation into its surrounding environments, as well as strong R&D commitment.

CPE Lite is Huawei’s latest mini customer premises equipment (CPE) designed for outdoor network scenarios. It enables cost-effective high-speed wireless access in a very compact form factor.

On top of its minimal, elegant notepad-sized appearance, the tensile build allows for excellent flexibility and adaptability, enabling it to perfectly blend in with modern urban environments. The miniaturized design encases tiny high-gain antennas and boasts highly efficient heat dissipation capabilities.

A floating ground design is also adopted to eliminate additional grounding and facilitate plug-and-play functionality, further enhancing industry-leading simplicity. In addition, new universal mounting brackets allow users to install the product on walls, poles, windows, or glass surfaces in just a few easy steps. This can be done without a professional installer, ensuring a simpler, more intuitive installation experience.

CPE Lite incorporates low-profile, directional, and dual-polarized antenna technology that provides a high gain and supports 4R transmission and FDD/TDD full bandwidth. This also enables the product to come in small dimensions while delivering high performance. An excellent anti-interference capability is further achieved to ensure high spectral efficiency in complex channel environments. Combined with these innovative designs, CPE Lite is a powerful tool to provide users with stable and high-speed network experience.

Zhang Yiqu, Head of WTTx Domain, said: “We are honored to receive the industry’s recognition of Huawei’s CPE Lite. It represents another innovation in miniaturization, user self-installation, and premium performance of Huawei’s outdoor CPE family. This CPE provides stronger signals than its indoor counterparts and allows for a peak throughput of up to 600 Mbps. It eliminates the need for a professional installer, significantly improving the service provisioning efficiency. We are confident that CPE Lite will complete Huawei’s outdoor and indoor CPE family, helping operators promote home broadband services and achieve business success.”

In Brussels, Abraham Liu, Huawei Chief Representative to the EU Institutions, said: Huawei started as a small company in China, but we have grown to be a world leader. And we learned from the rest of the world as we grew. We are honoured to receive this recognition and we continue to put a strong emphasis on research & development, which has always been at the core of Huawei’s spirit.”
