Zyxel NR5101 vs Huawei CPE Pro
The NR5101 is a better choice compared to the CPEPRO 5G router becuase it has WiFi 6 for super fast, long range 802.11AX WiFi as well as having 2 x SMA antenna connections on the rear for the connection of an external 5G antenna, albeit a 2×2 MiMo 5G antenna rather than the preferred 4×4 MiMo 5G antenna found on higher specification units such as the RAPID NR550.
