AX - The New Standard of WiFi

CAPACITY. SPEED & RANGE. EFFICIENCY.
CAPACITY

Improved Performance for Your Smart Home

AX WiFi features evolutionary technology OFDMA, which dramatically increases network capacity. By efficient data packet bundling and scheduling, more transmissions can be sent at the same time, thereby reducing contention and the wait time between transmissions. This results in better bandwidth utilization, a substantial increase in efficiency and reduced latency, allowing for multiple IoT devices to be connected to your network without impacting the bandwidth available for data-intensive applications.

EFFICIENCY

Benefits all Existing Devices

A Wi-Fi 6 router can provide significant efficiency improvement to your existing network and also helps existing WiFi devices have faster speed. Enjoy a better connected home experience as you stream 4K, Ultra-HD movies, download large files, and seamlessly use multiple smart devices with maximum WiFi coverage.
AX WiFi supports all current WiFi devices and is backwards compatible with Wi-Fi 5 and earlier generation WiFi devices.

Additional Features of AX WiFi

  • image description

    Multi-User Mimo (MU-mimo)

    Supports up to eight simultaneous streams, or the number of users that can be served at the same time. Allows more reliable audio and video playback on your smart TV, media streamer, smartphones, and other compatible devices.

    Data Efficiency with 1024 QAM

    AX WiFi increases throughput by up to 25 percent due to a higher quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM). Essentially, more data is transmitted per data packet.

    Resource Scheduling

    AX WiFi intelligently schedules the transmission of data packets—this managed approach results in fewer transmission clashes, improved resource utilization, and an impressive increase in your WiFi network efficiency.

    Spatial Reuse with Color Codes

    AX WiFi uses BSS coloring, which guides the decision to transmit or defer, thereby decreasing channel contention problems. The result is increased throughput per access point.

    Dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz Technology

    Concurrent dual-band operation makes AX WiFi ideal for all home connectivity requirements, from IoT sensor transmissions to high-end video streaming.

    Backwards Compatibility with Previous WiFi Standards

    AX WiFi supports all current WiFi devices and is backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi devices.
