AVM market launch: FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable

New FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable. High-performance cable internet with Wi-Fi 6 and gigabit speed

AVM brings high-speed Wi-Fi to cable connections with the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable. The premium model combines fast internet with Wi-Fi 6 for gigabit speeds throughout the home network. Streaming, gaming, Smart Home or working from home – the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable is the ideal router for all applications in the digital home. With support for DOCSIS 3.1, the new flagship model achieves peak values of up to 6 Gbit/s downstream and 2 Gbit/s upstream and can be used on any cable connection. Thanks to AVM's Mesh technology and a strong feature set (4x4 Wi-Fi 6), devices such as notebooks, tablets, smartphones and smart TVs benefit from Wi-Fi speeds in the gigabit range. With support for the new Wi-Fi 6 standard, even more devices can be reliably and stably integrated into the home network via Wi-Fi. Overall, the FRITZ! Box 6690 Cable provides up to 4,800 Mbit/s (5 GHz) + 1,200 Mbit/s (2.4 GHz) of powerful Wi-Fi for demanding applications. In large apartments and houses, the network can be easily expanded with the new FRITZ!Repeater 6000. The tri-band repeater also supports Wi-Fi 6 and forms a single Mesh Wi-Fi together with the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable. In addition, the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable has additional connection options such as a 2.5 gigabit port, three gigabit LAN ports and two USB 3.0 ports. This makes it easy to integrate network devices such as printers and storage media into the home network. The new FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable's extensive features also include a complete telephone system (DECT, IP, analog) with five answering machines. Smart Home devices can be integrated into the home network via the DECT base station. In addition, the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable offers an integrated TV tuner for the popular "DVB-C streaming" function. This allows users to watch cable TV via Wi-Fi anywhere in the home on mobile devices. The typical FRITZ!Box functions such as extensive parental controls, a firewall, a media server for photos, music, and videos, as well as Wi-Fi guest access round off the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable's range of features. The free apps such as MyFRITZ!App, FRITZ!App WLAN or FRITZ!App Smart Home make operating FRITZ! products super convenient.
