Blazing-fast combined WiFi speeds up to 6Gbps and AX optimized 64-bit 2.2GHz Quad-core processor powers smart home automation, ultra-smooth 4K UHD streaming, online gaming, and more.

WiFi 6 - Ready for Today and Tomorrow’s Smart Home

Introducing WiFi 6 - the latest generation of WiFi that delivers four times better performance than AC WiFi.

With innovative technologies, such as Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple-Access (OFDMA), 8x8 Multi-User MIMO, and intelligent scheduling, WiFi 6 delivers a huge boost in speed and total capacity. Rising to the challenges of modern smart home demands, this new standard of WiFi is ready to support more devices with better reliability and faster speeds.

Capacity

WiFi 6 gives you improved network capacity for more WiFi devices. Have more fun with the uninterrupted 4K/8K streaming, gaming, and the smart home experience. With MU-MIMO, WiFi 6 supports up to eight simultaneous streams for the number of users that can be served double at the same time as compared to an AC router.

Speed

Get ultra-fast wireless speeds with more connections for all devices with less congestion. You’ll get some blazing connection speeds of 1Gbps or more, 4K/8K streaming, & VR/AR gaming.

Range

Experience reliable and stronger WiFi coverage indoors and outdoors for all your devices. High-performance antennas on the router amplify WiFi signals for maximized range and reliable coverage.

Features:

12 Stream WiFi 6 - 4X Better Performance

Twelve WiFi spatial streams - four in the 2.4GHz band, and eight in the 5GHz band - offer four times the device capacity as compared to typical 2x2 AC WiFi. WiFi 6 also supports sending up to eight multi-user MIMO transmissions at a time, up from four for AC WiFi. This results in a significantly improved network capacity

8 High-Performance Antennas

Eight high-performance antennas extend wireless range indoors and out. Router signals are amplified to maximize reach and reliability, letting you use your WiFi in more places. Get stronger WiFi signals throughout your home, whether you’re gaming in the basement or need that extra coverage for your outdoor security cameras.

64-bit 2.2GHz Quad-Core Processor

Ultra-fast processor for smoother 4K UHD streaming, online/VR gaming, and a stronger, more reliable WiFi experience. This powerful processor is optimized for AX ensuring speed and performance for even more smart home devices and high-speed applications.

New Multi-Gigabit Wired Speeds

The multi-gigabit Ethernet port gives you 5 times faster speeds than the wired speed of a typical Gigabit port over Cat 5 cables. Use the four gigabit Ethernet LAN ports to connect more wired devices for faster file transfer and uninterrupted connections. Combine two gigabit Ethernet ports to further improve the aggregated file transfer speed.

Versatile Multi-Gig Internet Support

Maximize your Internet speeds up to 5Gbps with new versatile Ethernet wired connections. Used for LAN or Internet connectivity, it is 5 times the wired speed of a typical Gigabit port. Or aggregate two Ethernet ports for up to 2Gbps of Internet speed.

8x8 Multi-User MIMO

Using multi-user MIMO technology, routers can stream data to multiple devices simultaneously. That means faster downloads and smoother streaming for your devices. WiFi 6 extends MU-MIMO to 8-stream support so it can support double the number of simultaneous transmissions as compared to 4x4 MU-MIMO AC WiFi routers.

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA)

Using the OFDMA feature of WiFi 6, the WiFi traffic is managed much more efficiently since data is transmitted from different devices concurrently, rather than having each device’s data wait for its turn. This results in an efficient use of air-time, reduced latency, and increased bandwidth to add more devices to your network.
