AVM presents four new Mesh WiFi Repeaters

At the Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC), AVM is presenting the new FRITZ!Repeater generation with four new Mesh WiFi products for increased data throughput and wireless range. The FRITZ!Repeater 3000 in its free-standing housing, as well as the FRITZ!Repeater 2400, FRITZ!Repeater 1200 and FRITZ!Repeater 600 in the new plug-in design, quickly pass on the data in the FRITZ! Mesh system depending on the living situation and the demand for wireless range. Thanks to powerful processors and generous memory, the products are ready for the future and receive regular, long-term updates. Intelligent technologies such as band steering, AP steering (11v, 11k), crossband repeating and self-healing functions ensure that all mobile devices such as tablets and notebooks are always optimally supplied with WiFi. Using the new FRITZ!Repeaters is as easy as ever for the user: At the touch of a button, the FRITZ!Repeaters are integrated into the wireless network and adopt the settings of the FRITZ!Box or the wireless router. The FRITZ!App WLAN helps find the best location for the Repeaters in the home. Thanks to its three radio units (tri-band), the FRITZ!Repeater 3000 (available now) is particularly powerful and offers maximum wireless range for large living areas or offices. With four antennas each in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, the upcoming FRITZ!Repeater 2400 spans maximum-range wireless networks. With two antennas per frequency band, the FRITZ!Repeater 1200 is also dual-band compatible. Like the FRITZ!Repeater 2400, it has a gigabit LAN port for connecting devices by cable. Discreet, compact and equipped with four antennas in the 2.4 GHz band, the new FRITZ!Repeater 600 fits straight into a plug socket, offering even more wireless range. The Mesh Master for the four new repeaters is the FRITZ!Box. It provides all repeaters with the best Mesh performance, high data throughput and updates - directly from the internet connection. The FRITZ!Repeater 3000 will be available for purchase soon, the market launch of the FRITZ!Repeater 2400, FRITZ!Repeater 1200 and FRITZ!Repeater 600 is planned for the second quarter of 2019. AVM will be showing the new Mesh WiFi Repeater generation at this year's MWC, in hall 6, stand H40.

WiFi for every situation – four new FRITZ!Repeaters

With the new FRITZ!Repeater generation, AVM meets all needs when it comes to WiFi strength and range. The compact plug-in design of the FRITZ!Repeater 600 uses less space in the home or office. Thanks to its four antennas, it can transmit at up to 600 Mbit/s in the 2.4 GHz range. The powerful FRITZ!Repeater 1200, a compact design that plugs directly into a socket, supports the 2.4 GHz band as well as the 5 GHz band and achieves up to 1,266 MBit/s with two antennas each. Thanks to the gigabit LAN port, the repeater can also be integrated into the network via LAN cable or allows network-compatible devices such as multimedia receivers to be added to the fast WiFi. The FRITZ!Repeater 2400 is also equipped with a gigabit LAN port and, with four antennas per frequency band, achieves a performance of up to 2,333 Mbit/s for demanding wireless applications and scenarios. To supply a larger-than-average living space with very high data throughputs wirelessly, the FRITZ!Repeater 3000 offers maximum performance, with its additional 5 GHz radio unit (tri-band) for the connection to the FRITZ!Box and its second gigabit LAN port.

Seamless communication and stable connections thanks to Mesh WiFi

All new FRITZ!Repeaters support the powerful Mesh WiFi functions offered by a FRITZ!Box directly from the internet connection. On a FRITZ!Box, the FRITZ!Repeaters automatically adopt all relevant settings, such as the single wireless network name (SSID), password, guest network settings and wireless LAN schedule. Settings changed later in the FRITZ!Box automatically get transferred to the repeaters. Innovative technologies such as band steering, AP steering and crossband repeating, which rely on standards such as 11v and 11k, ensure that the FRITZ!Box and FRITZ!Repeater automatically tune themselves for the best performance. Thanks to the self-healing function, repeaters that are cascaded in the Mesh WiFi system adapt immediately to any changes. Updates to the repeaters can be carried out quickly and easily in the FRITZ!Box Mesh Overview. If automatic updates are set up in the FRITZ!Box, the repeaters will also always remain up to date.

Easy to install, energy-efficient and safe in operation

The new FRITZ!Repeaters can also be set up effortlessly at the touch of a button. The free FRITZ!App WLAN for Android and iOS shows users where to best place the repeater, ensuring the best possible WiFi perfomance. The existing WiFi network is extended while maintaining the network name and password. When used with a FRITZ!Box (FRITZ!OS 6.90 or higher), the Mesh WiFi function is automatically activated, offering additional performance and convenience features. With the support of Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) the FRITZ!Repeaters can also be used with wireless routers from other manufacturers. All repeaters offer secure wireless LAN encryption ex works. Enhanced wireless security is provided by the support of Protected Management Framework (PMF). In addition, the new FRITZ!Repeaters remain energy efficient during operation and on standby mode. The FRITZ!Repeater 600, for example, requires approx. 1.5 watts in standby, while the FRITZ!Repeater 2400 requires approx. 3 watts.
