All set for the fast DSL future: AVM is presenting its powerful FRITZ!Box models at the BBWF

  • New models as VDSL speed boosters: Supervectoring 35b, bonding, G.fast
  • The smart FRITZ! home network provides gigabit speed for the entire home
  • Live in action: new FRITZ!Box models and a smart FRITZ!OS

AVM is presenting its FRITZ!Box portfolio for broadband connections and seamless home networking at the Broadband World Forum (BBWF) in London from 18 to 20 October. Special emphasis is on the future of DSL and smart networking. At the European industry event AVM is showing two FRITZ!Box models for supervectoring 35b, bonding and G.fast: The FRITZ!Box 7581 for supervectoring 35b and bonding as well as the FRITZ!Box 7582 for supervectoring 35b and G.fast, which successfully passed tests. Among the novelties in London is also the first 4x4 wireless LAN router by AVM with intelligent Multi-User MIMO technology: FRITZ!Box 7580. Equipped with a VDSL modem that supports vectoring, the new model (already available in Germany) can also be used on fiber optic or cable modems via the gigabit WAN port. Another core theme of AVM’s presentation is the seamless connection of all devices in the home. As the transmission rates of the connections rise, data need to be made available via WiFi throughout the entire home. The FRITZ! home network by AVM with its wireless routers, wireless repeaters, powerline and wireless stick facilitates such seamless, smart communication at high speeds. This way, every device has access to stable WiFi and fast connections. All FRITZ! products can be integrated into the existing home network at the push of button. They are perfectly coordinated and regularly receive updates that increase the performance. Free FRITZ!Apps function as a window to the home network and the FRITZ!Box, simplify handling and offer many convenient features. Visitors at the AVM booth (A20) are able to experience the advantages of FRITZ!OS like wireless guest access, parental controls, detailed analysis of the wireless network, port forwarding and Smart Home functions on the FRITZ!Box.

Speed upgrade for DSL: FRITZ!Box for supervectoring 35b, bonding and G.fast

Various technologies are being prepared all over Europe to further increase the speed of DSL. VDSL bonding entails bundling several lines. It raises the available data rate on existing copper wires to as much as 240 Mbit/s. Combining bonding and vectoring can make even transmission rates of up to 300 Mbit/s possible. Two other technologies for higher data rates are possible by extending the bandwidths: supervectoring 35b increases bandwidth to 35 MHz, while G.fast extends it to 106 MHz or 212 MHz. On a cable length of maximum 300 meters, G.fast can enable data rates of up to 1 Gbit/s. These FRITZ!Box models are all ready for the speed upgrade on DSL connections: The FRITZ!Box 7581 supports supervectoring 35b and bonding, and the FRITZ!Box 7582 for supervectoring 35b and G.fast can easily transfer gigabit speeds to the devices within the home network. With the upcoming models users receive faster Internet, IP telephony and IP TV. Plus, they can network their devices via LAN or fast WiFi at gigabit speeds. Hence, AVM is offering providers two powerful models for the future development of DSL networks with its FRITZ!Box 7581 and 7582. G.fast is currently being tested in the field in Switzerland, Great Britain and Austria. The FRITZ!Box 7582 has already passed G.fast tests in Germany.

High-end wireless LAN on VDSL connections: The new FRITZ!Box 7580

The new FRITZ!Box is the first 4x4 wireless router equipped with the latest Multi-User MIMO technology. With a total of eight wireless LAN antennas, the FRITZ!Box 7580 enables concurrent connections on the 5-GHz (up to 1733 Mbit/s) and the 2.4-GHz (up to 800 Mbit/s) frequency bands according to the wireless standards AC and N. This way, even more WiFi devices can be used at the same time in the home network. The multifunctional wireless router comes in a new, white design, has an integrated DSL modem and supports VDSL vectoring for high-speed Internet. Plus, the FRITZ!Box 7580 with its powerful gigabit WAN port can be connected to cable and fiber optic modems. Also, the new FRITZ!Box provides an integrated telephone system including a DECT base station for all All-IP connections. Network devices like hard drives or printers can be integrated via gigabit LAN or USB. Thanks to the DECT technology and the numerous functions of FRITZ!OS, users can establish and control their Smart Home over the FRITZ!Box 7580. WiFi and LAN guest access, VPN, remote access as well as comprehensive parental control software are also part of the package.
