Helios® High Performance 5G NR CPE Pro

Transform 5G signal to your high-rate Wi-Fi 6 for home and enterprise


Helios® A856 is a 5G Wireless Gateway CPE that implements the conversion between 5G NR/LTE wireless data and wired Ethernet data. It supports 802.11ax WiFi6, 4*4 MIMO, and can be used independently.

Helios® A856 supports 5G NR Sub6 bands, and LTE Cat16 UE category, which provides the stable data, voice, Wi-Fi, maintenance and management service to home and enterprise users.

High Performance

Helios® A856 supports the worldwide 5G NR network, the highest data rate can arrive 2.5Gbps. And the WLAN supports the newest IEEE 802.11ax standards. The AX3600 Wi-Fi data rate can easily supply the HD video, online game, and high-quality network applications. The MU-MIMO and beamforming function can ensure the high data rate and signal quality when several users are using simultaneously.


Besides the basic 5G NR and WLAN functions, Helios® A856 also support VoLTE, SMS, firewall, VPN, QoS, etc. It satisfies the multi-directional requirements of users. Multiple management and maintenance methods (TR069/CLI/APP*) are convenient for checking and operating. The software online update tool will also constantly provide the upgrade of these functions.
