The modem is manufactured in accordance with the 7-nanometer process and supports work in 2G / 3G / 4G / 5G networks.
According to official data, the Balong 5000 was the first in the industry to reach peak download speeds on the 5G network. The maximum data transfer rate in the frequency band below 6 GHz is equal to 4.6 Gbit / s, whereas when tested in the millimeter range, this figure increases to 6.5 Gbit / s. Compared to 4G LTE, the speed increases by about 10 times.
