FRITZ! Box 7590 AX: The new flagship router
This new wireless router will be the flagship of the manufacturer, we have Simultaneous dual band with WiFi 6 and AX3600 class. In the 2.4GHz band we can achieve a speed of up to 1,201Mbps, thanks to its four internal antennas in MU-MIMO 4T4R configuration and WiFi 6 with 1024QAM. In the 5GHz band we can achieve a speed of up to 2.402Mbps, thanks to its four internal antennas in MU-MIMO 4T4R configuration, 80MHz channel width and WiFi 6 with 1024QAM. A very important detail of this WiFi router is that the 5GHz band can be configured to operate with 80MHz of channel width or with 160MHz of channel width. Depending on the type of devices that we connect, it will be worth it to have or not 160MHz of channel width in this frequency band.
The FRITZ! OS firmware in this router incorporates MU-MIMO, OFDMA and Beamforming in addition to other typical features of the WiFi 6 standard. It also allows you to configure a complete WiFi Mesh network with other compatible AVM manufacturer equipment, such as other routers and even WiFi repeaters . We also have WPA2 / WPA3 security in transition mode, we don’t have WPA3-Personal yet just to have the best possible security. Of course, we can create a guest WiFi network, select the channel automatically and activate the WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) to register the different wireless clients.
This router has One Gigabit Ethernet port for the Internet WAN dedicated, it has support for VLANs in the WAN for both Internet and VoIP telephony, we also have a total of four Gigabit Ethernet ports for the LAN Y two USB 3.0 ports high-performance for sharing files and folders on the local network and the Internet. The FRITZ! OS operating system has multiple services to make the most of these USB 3.0 ports, so we can set up our own NAS server using the router.
Other very important characteristics of this router is that we have an ADSL2 + / VDSL2 modem integrated into the router, therefore, this router is very versatile since it also incorporates the dedicated RJ-45 WAN port for FTTH or cable connections. Of course, we have two RJ-11 ports for analog telephones, an ISDN port and a DECT base to connect the manufacturer’s home automation devices and also cordless telephones that are compatible with this technology.
The FRITZ! OS operating system is the same as always, with the same customization and configuration options as the rest of the manufacturer’s routers. This router represents a clear evolution of the FRITZ! Box 7590 by incorporating high-performance WiFi 6 connectivity, the rest of the technical characteristics are the same as always.
FRITZ! Repeater 6000: New high-end WiFi repeater
This new WiFi repeater from the manufacturer AVM is the top of the range of the brand, we have simultaneous triple band with WiFi 6 and AX6000 class. In the 2.4GHz band we can achieve a speed of up to 1,201Mbps, and in each of the two 5GHz bands we can achieve a speed of up to 2,402Mbps, thanks to its four internal antennas in MU-MIMO 4T4R configuration. This WiFi repeater has an interconnection backbone with the router running at 2.4Gbps speed, ideal to obtain the maximum possible speed when we connect devices via cable and also via WiFi. For customers we will have simultaneous dual band with WiFi 6 and AX3600 class like the FRITZ! Box 7590 AX router that we have seen previously.
This WiFi repeater has a 2.5G Multigigabit port for the LAN, and another Gigabit Ethernet port for the LAN. Thanks to these two ports, we can maximize the performance of this new equipment to expand the wireless coverage in our home.
The FRITZ! OS operating system incorporated in this WiFi repeater is compatible with WPA2 / WPA3 in transition mode, it also integrates perfectly into any AVM Mesh network as long as we have FRITZ! OS 6.90 or later. Of course, this device fully supports the IPv6 protocol and is compatible with any WiFi router, it does not need to be from AVM, but we will lose the Mesh functionality with WiFi roaming.
