Available in Germany for IFA: New FRITZ!Box models for fast Internet and the convenient home network

The recently introduced FRITZ!Box 7580 provides for strong, intelligent WiFi thanks to its Multi-User MIMO technology (MU-MIMO). This makes the FRITZ!Box 7580 perfect for multiple big data applications that run on several mobile devices simultaneously using wireless LAN. The first 4x4 wireless LAN router by AVM provides for speeds of up to 1733 Mbit/s (5 GHz) plus 800 Mbit/s (2.4 GHz). What's more, VDSL vectoring grants access to high-speed Internet. A complete telephone system including DECT base station and FRITZ!OS convenience fulfills all communication needs. The FRITZ!Box 7560 is a high-performance VDSL router with fast Wireless AC technology. It allows you to reach up to 866 Mbit/s in the 5-GHz band and 450 Mbit/s in the 2.4-GHz band. Thanks to gigabit LAN PCs, game consoles and other network devices share the same high-speed access. Plus, the 7560 comes with a quality telephone system and an integrated media server. With the new, recently available FRITZ!Box 4040, AVM is expanding its portfolio of purely wireless routers. The new model comes in a compact housing and is the big brother of the small and popular FRITZ!Box 4020. It is the perfect addition for all who already use a modem (cable, DSL, fiber) and need fast wireless LAN for modern tablets and PCs. The new FRITZ!Box transmits using Wireless AC + N with up to 866 Mbit/s + 400 Mbit/s at the same time. Other devices can be integrated into the home network via cable over four fast gigabit LAN ports. Of course, the many functions of FRITZ!OS are also included.

For the new law on free choice of routers in Germany: Trade fair premiere FRITZ!Box 6430 Cable

AVM expands its portfolio of FRITZ! Cable models with the new FRITZ!Box 6430 Cable. The FRITZ!Box 6430 Cable with 16 x 4 channel bonding offers download rates of up to 880 Mbit/s and upload rates of up to 120 Mbit/s for cable networks. It transmits data in the home network via Wireless N (2.4 GHz) with 450 Mbit/s and via 4 gigabit LAN ports. Plus, it comes with a telephone system and DECT base station for cordless telephones and Smart Home applications. The current top model for cable connections – the FRITZ!Box 6490 Cable – with 24 x 8 channel bonding for 1320 Mbit/s downstream has been available in retail since the new regulation on free choice of routers took effect in Germany (1 August).

For the Smart Home: First radiator control by AVM and intelligent outdoor plug

For the first time AVM is presenting its own radiator control: Combined with a FRITZ!Box, the FRITZDECT 300 manages the temperature at home and helps to save energy. It is securely integrated into the home network via the exclusive DECT ULE radio band and is easy to operate using a PC, smartphone, tablet or FRITZ!Fon. The new AVM radiator control can even be regulated from within the home network or on the go via MyFRITZ!App. It provides for various convenience features such as the selection of individual schedules, open window detection, key lock and calcification protection. The FRITZ!DECT 300 is also updatable so it will benefit from regularly added features. It can easily be mounted on common radiator valves. Using the upcoming new outdoor plug FRITZ!DECT 210, the smart FRITZ! home network can be extended within the home and in the garden. Fountains, lights, lawn sprinklers and many other devices can be operated manually or automatically with it. Users can measure the power consumption or temperature at home or on the go simply by using their DECT telephone, PC, smartphone or tablet.

FRITZ! innovations: FRITZ!Powerline with dual-band wireless LAN and smart FRITZ!WLAN Stick

At IFA 2016, AVM is presenting a new gigabit range FRITZ!Powerline product. With FRITZ!Powerline 1260E network-enabled devices can be integrated easily into the home network via the socket. Thanks to the integrated dual-band wireless LAN even devices without a cable connection have access to your network. The new FRITZ!Powerline product transmits with Wireless AC at up to 866 Mbit/s (5 GHz) and Wireless N (2.4 GHz) at up to 450 Mbit/s. The FRITZ!WLAN Stick AC 430 MU-MIMO is also new. The upcoming product equips PCs and notebooks that don't support Wireless AC or the MU-MIMO technology with faster transmission rates. The new FRITZ!WLAN Stick allows data rates of up to 433 Mbit/s. On top of this, the USB stick supports both the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency bands.

New MyFRITZ!App and a first glance at the smart FRITZ!OS

With MyFRITZ!App 2 for Android FRITZ!Box users have easy and secure access to their home network whether they're at home or on the go. The free app notifies users within seconds about calls, voice messages and other events in the home network. The app enables mobile access to photos, music and other data stored on the FRITZ!Box. Smart plugs, DECT radiator controls, answering machines or call diversion settings can easily be managed from anywhere with the MyFRITZ!App. If needed, the app also grants access to other home network devices from every location. With the next FRITZ!OS the FRITZ! home will get even smarter. It will be possible to integrate devices like sensors or door/window contacts that use HAN-FUN – an extension of the DECT ULE standard – into the home network. The FRITZ!Fon models will receive a new Smart Home start screen and an acoustic sensor will be activated locally in the smart plug FRITZ!DECT 200. Lamps or other connected devices will then react to clapping, knocking or the like. Additionally, the upcoming version will allow the FRITZ!Box to be used with mobile telephones that support CAT-iq 2.0.
