What is HPUE?

HPUE is a special class of devices designed to transmit at a higher power, which AT&T refers to as MegaRange, across specific frequencies.

Standard mobile devices such as smartphones, cellular routers, and the like are defined as Power Class 3. These devices have a standard transmit power of 23 dBm (200mW). HPUE is classified as Power Class 1. They are allowed 32 dBm (1.25 W) uplink power output. That’s 6x the power! A higher uplink means a stronger, farther-reaching signal is sent to the tower.

6X More Output Power with HPUE for Enterprise

In the United States, the 3GPP has only authorized high power transmission on FirstNet Band 14. While this band is dedicated for public safety, AT&T allows qualified commercial users to utilize the band during non-priority periods. This enables businesses to keep systems, processes, and operations running smoothly.

The SHIELD MegaFi by Nextivity is the only HPUE mobile router on the market with AT&T MegaRange technology for enterprise applications.

How Does HPUE Benefit Enterprises?

Whether your business uses a mobile router for daily connectivity or as a backup, HPUE helps create a more robust connection for critical communication.

Oftentimes, transmitting information fails because standard mobile routers don't have the uplink power needed to reach those distant cell towers or push a signal through obstacles. This results in loss of data, interruptions in communication, and operational disruptions, especially in remote sites or within buildings like elevators, basements, and the like.

By transmitting a stronger signal, HPUE mobile routers, like the MeagaFi, can better penetrate building materials that block cell signals and reach cell towers located much further. It revolutionizes the reliability of transactions, process monitoring, data transfer, security, and more.

Best Enterprise HPUE Solution on the Market

Nextivity SHIELD MegaFi, the next generation of High Power User Equipment, is available for Enterprise as well as FirstNet use. It’s the first and only authorized HPUE device for AT&T MegaRange.

Using an AT&T Business SIM card, the cloud-supported and SD-WAN-capable mobile router draws in cellular signals and broadcasts WiFi signals. Any device can wirelessly connect to the router for greater connectivity. You can even wire devices to the router via its Ethernet ports.

Anywhere Band 14 is available high power will automatically kick in during non-priority periods. During emergencies, the band will be locked for first responders on FirstNet only. Outgoing data will be transmitted even stronger back to the tower, keeping your business online for the most critical connectivity.

According to Nextivity, “applications include financial institutions, remote data centers, utilities, transportation-related businesses, retail, and other enterprises with remote-monitored infrastructure. MegaFi also offers significant advantages in cities where the extra power helps maintain connectivity in places like subways, underground garages, and elevators.”
