ZTE launches 'world's smallest' 4G LTE dongle

4G datacard supports download speeds of up to 100Mbps

Article comments

Chinese telecoms manufacturer ZTE has launched what it claims is the world's smallest 4G LTE dongle.

The MF823 datacard is only 13mm thick – nearly a third of the size of the first generation LTE datacard – and uses a third less power. It runs on Qualcomm’s second generation LTE chip platform and has been optimised to stay cool even after long periods of use.

The dongle supports IPv6, LTE-FDD, UMTS-HSPA+ and GPRS/GSM, with download and upload speeds for LTE at 100Mbps and 50Mbps respectively, while those for UMTS-HSPA+ are 42Mbps and 5.76Mbps.

It also offers high bandwidth, low delay and high communication rate, to reduce the dropping rate of data and voice communication.

The ZTE MF823 has already been launched in Kazakhstan and will launch soon in Europe and Asia-Pacific countries.

ZTE has been investing in LTE terminal products since 2008, and has obtained a number of LTE terminal core technology patents.

Earlier this year the company launched the world’s first multi-standard USB modem, the MF820S2, and uFi, the MF91S.

ZTE was also the first Chinese vendor to launch a 4G LTE smartphone, the Grand X LTE (T82). Last month the company announced that its Grand Era LTE smartphone is compatible with LTE networks across Europe.
