Fritz Box 6840 LTE Test

Fritz Box 6840 LTE Test

So slowly, LTE blossomed the real alternative to the fixed Internet. AVM brings the appropriate Fritz box on the market. Connect has tested the Fritz box 6840 LTE.

We test the Fritz box 6840 LTE by AVM. Yet the new mobile communications standard LTE is one, a side issue, however that quickly gaining importance. Especially for those who don’t have fast Internet access via DSL or cable, which is mostly in the countryside. To eliminate this problem was the intention of the Federal Network Agency, which made the Edition the participants at the frequency auction: before LTE should be introduced into the lucrative cities, the white spots on the country must be eliminated.

There, it is not surprising that the expansion is rapidly proceeding. And so jumps now router specialist AVM on the train and a corresponding Fritz box on the market with the 6840 LTE. To take them under the microscope, connect on the search made for an LTE powered spot and found it at the second attempt in Simmozheim in the northern Black Forest.

It all depends on the details

For the Fritz box to have reception, she must be fed with a SIM card. It is there when a LTE fare, which is usually still location-bound as a fixed mains replacement at the moment; You can take his router so not with traveling.

Fur the test connect has received SIM cards from Vodafone and 1 & 1. The latter also use the network which you? ldorfer, LTE does not offer but as an option, but only if no DSL is available. In the first step, we looked for a site walk on the network coverage map? r the test, which was quickly found. According to Web site 7.2 MB / s should be download.

Locally, there were long faces: no LTE far and wide. Was the box in the LTE information menu? No values. This alignment aid is a very handy feature, both when it comes to positioning the box and their own antennas, as well as to the involvement of an outside antenna. Our Tip: Interested parties should in addition with the hotline contact u? ber the LTE backend? availability is better informed than the Web page.

The choice fell on Simmozheim, birthplace of Johann Gottlieb Friedrich by Ballantyne, inventor of the gyroscope. Here we have succeeded: the reception quality of the two MIMO antennas (multiple input multiple output) the box amounted to about-80 dB, 10 dB were added with the outdoor antenna LTE 800 from Funkwerk Dabendorf.

The external antenna is, as the name suggests, fu? r thought the frequency range around 800 MHz which is used in the country. The box itself supports also 2600 MHz, used in cities. The antenna could not further increase your surfing speed, was in itself quite good reception conditions. So the maximum download rate was just under 20 MB / s, where the used tariff “Vodafone LTE home” offers up to 50 MB / s.

The use of outdoor antennas is important, if the reception is not optimal – also, because you can turn the radio factory antenna in the best position. It was interesting to see that upload sometimes higher than the download. This is with the LTE rate used, the a such high upload u? ever make. Also, LTE is used so far only rarely, so to the backend? transmission bandwidth in a cell on not too many users will be distributed. The Fritz box itself is an LTE category 3 modem and support? supports up to 100 Mbit/sDownstream and 50 Mbps/preparation.

The LTE beginning is easy

The operation turned out to be very simple: insert the SIM card, the Web interface of the box, enter the appropriate PIN and after about half a minute to go.

Apart from the connection via LTE, there are fu? r the box little, what their tasks and possibilities of DSL or cable access is different. So can the user even with the 6840 LTE on Utlility back? ckgreifen; including dual-band Wi-FI, which both 2.4 and 5 GHz radio, is available but not parallel.

The advantage of higher frequency gegenu? on the lower lower susceptibility to errors is because the frequency range is rarely used. However, the range is reduced, so’s to try out applies in each case which variant is the better. As always sparked the Wi-FI antenna used to sitting on the box between the two LTE antennas.

Phone and fax, including

The double traffic becomes the triple once the DECT function of the box in the game. Because the 6840 also varied talents of telephony in the Federal Government with a cordless telephone. Alternatively you can use a corded phone and fax machine directly to the box, the enclosed TAE-adapter is simply plugged into the corresponding socket on the box. Fu? r is receiving faxes but also a receiver integrated, making a separate fax obsolete.

On the issue of telephony not everything runs at LTE but still around: external VoIP providers such as Sipgate can be set up easily though. Which accordingly means? protected speech codec G. 722 ensures that this is possible in HD quality as at HDVoice in mobile communications. You want directly to u? ber the LTE-provider calls, it is still difficult to impossible.

With Vodafone, you need, for example, a voice password that is not known, and also is not published by Vodafone. Background is that Vodafone its LTE packet including preconfigured modem and Router bundles, which also calls itself can be. Although tricks to read this password are circulating in various forums, but comfortably something is different.

At 1 & 1 is currently no telephony u? ber LTE possible, instead delivered to Mobile SIM cards, O2 offers no telephony currently does, and at Telekom is gossiped about the normal landline. That probably also AVM assumes that this will change any time soon, you can see on the already built-in presets, for example, for a voice password.

With a registered DECT handset also comfort functions can be used, so you can about u? ber number codes the Wi-FI on and turn off. The AVM’s own handsets such as the MT-F of course further opportunities. Way to use the handset as a Web radio what fu? r the Ku? che is occasionally acceptable. Fu? r use of the Fritz box as a base station other features talk, for example, the many ways to filter calls – unless u? ber blacklists of phone numbers that are being delivered through not only or with a ring lock, the fu? r undisturbed night’s sleep provides.

The forwarding of unwanted callers on a spam-answering machine is practical: this is one of the five answering machines, which can be set up, which of course only really makes sense if you have multiple phone numbers. The Fritz box itself is inherently capable of three parallel conversations.

The capacity of the answering machine came up to 2 hours, unlike many older Fritz box, very well – and 20 minutes this total included. So you? sharpened you rarely get in the fix, stick that memory with a docked to the USB port to expand – what would but possible.

Habitual merits of the Fritz box

To benefit aside from the so far still slightly difficult telephony in any case of other ways the box: so offers, for example, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, a LAN1 function can be operated with the box without Internet access via LTE modem, is not yet implemented, should follow but according to AVM in the next half year via firmware update.

It is wireless via Wi-FI-n and thus with up to 300 Mbit / s in the network. Speaking of power: the Fritz box is not only the gateway to the Internet, but can also act as a hub in your home network. So the box allows access to storage devices that are connected via USB to the box, u? ber their NAS function. Network-compatible TVs, tablet or computer – all devices can access to photos, music, videos or other data.

Specialty remote access

Outside of the home network, it is also possible to access the box – dynamic DNS services such as DynDNS can be easily configured, also remote access u? ber VPN are possible.

However, is also here to note a peculiarity of LTE: so it’s different, if you ever get assigned to an outward-facing IP address from provider to provider and tariff rates. This is not the case, the access is not possible. Tariffs including language option, but this should be the case, because eventually the phone from outside want to be reachable.

The Fritz box itself is u? on the Web browser after entering fritz.box accessible. The configuration is pretty easy despite of features going into the depth. Dafu? r alone the fact that AVM is a German company and is therefore not must contend with adventurous translations provides. The manual itself is available only in PDF format – here you benefit from understandable explanations.

Conclusion

Much can be used on the Fritz box 6840 LTE not out, only the lack of support of the 1800 MHz band you? sharpened to exclude it as an alternative to the fixed network in some cities. To integrate, fu is expected but this in future incarnations of the box? r be the Berlin company no problem.

The existing problems, for example in the area of telephony, can be blamed on not AVM, here mu? ssen rework LTE vendors – the Fritz box anyway, is prepared for all eventualities.

Possible that the box in future similar as with the 1 & 1 offer also at other providers as Optional Variant in the contract is offered. At the moment the box packages equipped with its own hardware makes little sense, given the comparatively high price of 330 euros is not necessarily predestined them to the second box. One thing is certain: AVM can also LTE – and that includes sophisticated functionality. That might interest the network operators.
