TP-Link Unveils Its New Tri-Band WiFi 6 Router with IoT Protection—Archer AX90
SHENZHEN, China – TP-Link® today announced Archer AX90, an AX6600 Tri-Band Gigabit WiFi 6 Router featuring robust WiFi 6 features, a powerful quad-core Broadcom CPU, and the brand new HomeShield™ security system, delivering more value to the high-end router category. We believe that Archer AX90 is the best high-end WiFi 6 router in 2020 for most households with its outstanding performance and competitive price.
Eying at customer concerns concerning privacy and cybersecurity, TP-Link partnered with Avira™ to arm Archer AX90 with the latest HomeShield™ security system and guard clients, including IoT devices, from all cyberattacks. Whether it’s a phone, laptop, TV box, or a smart home camera, the new HomeShield™ protects them all and schedules a daily scan to identify weak points in your network to prevent emerging threats.
Full-Speed WiFi 6 for Multiple 8K
Archer AX90 comes with 8-Stream WiFi 6 with OFDMA, 1024-QAM, a faster symbol rate, and TWT, all of which provide faster speed, broader coverage, higher capacity, and better power saving on clients. Archer AX90 also encapsulates 4×4 MU-MIMO and high-end WiFi 6 features HT160, enabling multiple clients to reach up to 4.8 Gbps WiFi speed. It supports simultaneous transmissions with lower latency thanks to OFDMA integration, keeping multiple 8K streams as smooth as possible.
Accessible Tri-Band WiFi 6
Archer AX90 offers three asymmetrical WiFi 6 bands—4804 Mbps (5 GHz) + 1201 Mbps (5 GHz) + 600 Mbps (2.4 GHz)—to boost signal directions, broaden coverage, clear out congestions, and reduce interference. As different bands work on separate channels, tri-band routers form more signal beams at the same time without creating interference. The different bandwidths for each band make Archer AX90 more affordable than other high-end WiFi 6 routers, while still meeting most home’s needs such as 5 GHz WiFi connections for demanding devices like gaming consoles and working laptops or requiring ample capacity for other clients including legacy devices and IoT.
Stunning Selection of Ports
One 2.5 Gbps port, multiple Gigabit ports, and dual USB ports are offered by Archer AX90, providing the most versatile connectivity for this powerful network hub. The function of the 2.5 Gbps WAN/LAN port and Gigabit WAN/LAN port can be easily tweaked in the intuitive management panel. Whether it’s used to connect a high-speed network over 1 Gbps or set as the gateway for a 2.5 Gbps NAS, Archer AX90 is dedicated to our customers needing this new generation of WiFi. Two USB ports add a practical tool for our customers to easily store and share across the home network. Furthermore, with built-in VPN server functions, our customers can securely access the files from outside.
HomeShield Powered by Avira
The whole-new HomeShield powered by Avira makes Archer AX90 the first TP-Link router able to guard IoT smart home devices. Today, routers are the gateway of smart homes and are easily becoming a channel through which hackers infiltrate to exploit vulnerable IoT devices. Given that these attacks either go through or directly target routers, it is mission-critical that the secure positioning of routers is reinforced. With Avira’s “engineered-in-Germany” AI technology and deep antivirus experience, HomeShield on Archer AX90 starts by securing the home WiFi gateway and continues to protect the home network and all devices.
