Expanded Coverage Throughout Your Home

Four high-gain exterior antennas work in tandem with Beamforming technology to provide strong, dependable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. By removing signal interference from your neighbours, cutting-edge Wi-Fi 6 technologies like BSS Color provide smooth and consistent connections. ‡


Reduce Devices’ Power Consumption

While Wi-Fi 6 clients are beginning to appear in significant numbers on the market, the newest AX technology—Target Wake Time—allows your devices to communicate more while using less power. TWT-enabled mobile and IoT devices negotiate when and how often they will wake up to send or receive data, allowing for more sleep time and longer battery life. ****

†Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range, coverage, and the maximum number of connected devices are based on test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless data throughput, wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects, and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume, and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead, and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.
‡Use of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), and features including OFDMA, MU-MIMO, and 1024-QAM require clients to also support the corresponding features.
§HE160 requires client devices that support 160 MHz bandwidth on Wi-Fi.
△802.11ax 2x2 160 MHz enables 2402 Mbps maximum theoretical data rates, 3X faster than standard 802.11ac 2x2 80 MHz (867 Mbps) and nearly 6x faster than baseline 1x1ac (433 Mbps) Wi-Fi as documented in IEEE 802.11 wireless standard specifications, and require the use of similarly configured 802.11ax wireless network routers.
*“Up to 75% lower latency” is based on Intel simulation data of 802.11ax with and without OFDMA using 9 clients. Average latency without OFDM is 36ms, with OFDMA average latency is reduced to 7.6ms. Latency improvement requires that the AP and all clients support OFDMA.
**This amendment defines standardized modifications to both the IEEE 802.11 physical layers (PHY) and the IEEE 802.11 Medium Access Control layer (MAC) that enable at least one mode of operation capable of supporting at least four times improvement in the average throughput per station (measured at the MAC data service access point) in a dense deployment scenario while maintaining or improving the power efficiency per station.
***Intel and the Intel logo are trademarks of Intel Corporation or its subsidiaries in the U.S. and/or other countries.
****Saving clients' battery power requires clients to also support the 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard. Actual power reduction may vary as a result of network conditions, client limitations, and environmental factors.
*****This router may not support all the mandatory features as ratified in Draft 3.0 of IEEE802.11ax specification. Further software upgrades for feature availability may be required.
