At the hub of the powerful AX6000 router is Broadcom’s 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) chipset. The next generation 802.11ax standard is designed to provide incredible Wi-Fi speed with the stability, range and efficiency to optimize home Wi-Fi networks. Consumers with numerous Wi-Fi devices throughout their home or living in bandwidth-intensive households greatly benefit from the improved experience with OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology in the Archer AX6000 router.
OFDMA optimizes bandwidth utilization by simultaneously servicing multiple up-link and down-link client devices. A single frequency wave can carry more data transmission packets. Combined with 8x8 MU-MIMO, spatial streams are doubled from 802.11ac 4x4 MU-MIMO to any client device in a single direction adding up-link transmission capabilities, making Wi-Fi 6 more efficiently distributed.
“Wi-Fi 6 is the next standard of wireless performance,” said Ivan Li, general manager of TP-Link Canada Inc. “Offering Wi-Fi 6 products support our mission to continue to evolve with the lifestyle of our consumers and satisfy the demands of tomorrow. As an original manufacturer of networking products consistently bringing high-quality products into the market, consumers can expect our AX6000 router to be as robust as it is competitive.”
The Archer AX6000 is designed to achieve breathtaking speeds of up to 1,148 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 4,804 Mbps on the 5 GHz band*. Equipped with a 2.5 Gigabit WAN port and eight Gigabit LAN ports, the Archer AX6000 seamlessly services multiple wireless connections simultaneously. Downloading a 20 GB movie can take as little as 2 minutes**.
AX11000 and AX50 will follow the launch of AX6000 to cater to different user activities. AX11000 gives gamers an edge with higher capacity and speed performance for lower latency and fast reaction speed. AX50 is a sleek AX router equipped with Wi-Fi Gig+6 by Intel, providing stronger connections in high-density homes of up to 256 devices.
