AVM rolls out update for more products

More Mesh: FRITZ!Repeater and FRITZ!Powerline get FRITZ!OS 7.20

FRITZ!OS 7.20 is now available for the FRITZ!Repeater 1750E and the FRITZ!Repeater 3000. All current FRITZ!Repeaters and the FRITZ!Powerline 1260E have now received the major update. With FRITZ!OS 7.20, AVM is implementing WPA3 in all current FRITZ! products. The new encryption standard brings significant improvements when it comes to authentication and security of Wi-Fi networks. With Wi-Fi guest access, a public Wi-Fi hot spot can now also be set up over which encrypted data are securely transmitted – thanks to Enhanced Open/Opportunistic Wireless Encryption (OWE). For example, cafés or doctors' surgeries can offer a public Wi-Fi hotspot that is secure and doesn't require users to enter a password. Together with a FRITZ!Box that also has FRITZ!OS 7.20, FRITZ!Repeaters and FRITZ!Powerline devices now form an even more powerful Mesh Wi-Fi. With the new "Performance Mesh Steering", the Mesh software from AVM guarantees optimal Wi-Fi connections in the home network. The FRITZ! Mesh system regularly checks the connection quality of wireless terminal devices and automatically directs them to better Wi-Fi bands or Mesh repeaters in the home network. Furthermore, the Mesh auto channel selection has been improved, ensuring the best frequency channel is always selected for the entire Mesh. With FRITZ!OS 7.20, particularly powerful FRITZ!Repeaters such as the FRITZ!Repeater 2400 and FRITZ!Repeater 3000 also support channel bandwidths of 160 MHz for compatible wireless devices. This significantly boosts Wi-Fi performance.

FRITZ!Repeaters and FRITZ!Powerline devices work with the FRITZ!OS operating system, which is optimized for Mesh. They thus guarantee powerful Wi-Fi at home and offer a number of other advantages of the FRITZ! Mesh system, including simple setup and regular updates for new features and a high level of security.  

The highlights of FRITZ!OS 7.20 are summarized for users here.

The following products have received the update so far:

  • FRITZ!Box 7590, 7530
  • FRITZ!Repeater 3000, 2400, 1200, 600 and 1750E
  • FRITZ!Powerline 1260E
