Archer AXE200 Omni is the most spectacular router we have seen so far at the Las Vegas show and has been awarded one of the CES awards by a group of experts based on its innovation, engineering, functionality and aesthetics.
What makes it different? The main reason is its group of four rotating antennas that they move automatically like the wings of an insect. Typically, the direction of external antennas is manually adjusted by users to optimize wireless signal transmissions depending on their location and needs. On this router, the The process will be carried out automatically by the router or the application that controls the antennas, with the aim of «improve user experience while redefining how network devices work«.
Archer AXE200 Omni, not just antennas
The new TP-Link router is still in the prototype phase so it remains to be seen if it confirms the promised improvements, but it is certainly an innovation for wireless routers. Of course, in addition to the automatic movement of the antennas, this Archer AXE200 Omni includes the expected features to satisfy the needs in 8K, AR / VR and home NAS configurations.
For this it includes WAN / LAN ports, one 10G, one 2.5G, and four plus Gigabit Ethernet. Unsurprisingly, it supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E wireless standard, which is becoming ubiquitous in networking products and all new up-and-coming mid-range computers unveiled in Las Vegas.
Capable of operating in four bands, it offers a Ultra-fast Wi-Fi with width up to 11 Gbps (4804 Mbps (6 GHz) + 4804 Mbps (5 GHz) + 1148 Mbps (2.4 GHz). It also has functions such as OFDMA to increase the number of connected devices; more versatile parental controls including URL blocking, administration of profiles and others, or EasyMesh technology that works as a WiFi solution for the whole home between several providers, providing integrated, stable and scalable wireless connections that cover all rooms of a home without replacing existing devices.
The manufacturer will offer the TP-Link Tether application to facilitate the configuration of a router that also supports Wi-Fi devices with previous standards. No price or availability has been provided for this ‘arachnid’. Prior to your arrival, TP-Link will market the Archer AX300, with support for Wi-Fi 6E and multi-band with a more conventional fixed antenna design.
