Better performance in WLAN Mesh

As of Version 7.5, FRITZ!OS brings higher performance to the Mesh Wi-Fi of the FRITZ! home network with dynamic Smart Repeating. Users operating a FRITZ!Repeater or a FRITZ!Box as a Mesh Repeater benefit from higher data throughput and greater stability on their wireless connections. With the new FRITZ!OS version, both frequency bands (2.4 and 5 GHz) are used even more dynamically to optimally connect FRITZ!Box with the Mesh Repeater.

"Stiftung Warentest" says WLAN Mesh solution from AVM is best

“The best Mesh Wi-Fi comes from FRITZ!“ declared "Stiftung Warentest" in a comparison test of eight Mesh Wi-Fi systems. The independent institution first added Mesh systems to its product categories in January 2023. A Mesh system provides the entire home with Wi-Fi. The judges put FRITZ! products way ahead of the field. Both the FRITZ!Repeater 6000 and 1200 AX achieved the best grade with “good” (2.0). Besides the modular solution with two identical Mesh repeaters and the FRITZ!Box 7590 AX,  "Stiftung Warentest" tested the competitions’ complete systems that require an additional modem.  That’s where the decisive advantage of the Mesh technology from FRITZ! comes into play. Users can put together the products according to their needs to build the home network they want. The FRITZ! Repeater 6000 delivers the fastest Wi-Fi to every corner of the home network. With the FRITZ!Repeater 1200 AX, users enjoy a high-performance solution that is economical to purchase and operate. As for the important security factor, only the FRITZ! products earned a “very good (1.2)” grade. "Stiftung Warentest" praised configuration as well: “AVM provides the best instructions for its sets.”
