AVM at IFA 2019 – FRITZ!Repeater and FRITZ!OS 7.12

IFA 2019: New FRITZ!Repeater generation for Mesh WiFi now available – FRITZ!OS 7.12 for more convenience

With the release of the FRITZ!Repeater 2400, the new generation of Mesh WiFi repeaters from FRITZ! is complete and available in retail outlets. All four new FRITZ!Repeaters increase the range of any wireless network quickly and easily, building a strong and stable Mesh WiFi network. In addition to their WiFi power, they are easy to set up at the touch of a button and are energy efficient both in standby mode and when being used. With the new FRITZ!Repeater generation, AVM meets all needs when it comes to WiFi strength and range. The FRITZ!Box is the Mesh Master which, with other repeaters, forms an intelligent Mesh WiFi system starting from the Internet connection. The square shape of the new FRITZ!Repeater 600 saves space at power outlets. Thanks to its four antennas, it transmits signals at up to 600 Mbit/s in the 2.4 GHz range and provides great coverage. The powerful FRITZ!Repeater 1200, also 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 2333 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 two gigabit LAN ports. Thanks to Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), all FRITZ!Repeaters can be used with wireless routers offered by other manufacturers or providers. Other advantages of the FRITZ!Repeater include regular updates and a five-year manufacturer's warranty. en.avm.de/new-fritzrepeater-generation
