With this FRITZ!OS 6.01, AVM is enhancing its FRITZ!Box with higher speeds, greater
convenience and a range of useful functions. Improvements to the wireless LAN guest access,
MyFRITZ!, Smart Home, FRITZ!Fon and NAS create new possibilities
and really step up convenience.

Would you like to update your FRITZ!Box with the new functions?
All you need to do is have the Update Wizard search for the new version of FRITZ!OS.
Once the update is available, you’re only two clicks away from bringing
your FRITZ!Box up to date. With FRITZ!OS 6.01 your FRITZ!Box will have over 100 new
functions and improvements for your FRITZ!Box, all of them completely free of charge.


Your Private Hotspot

Provide a secure, private hotspot - providing your guests with free, fast WiFi Internet access.
The private hotspot has features that go beyond the capabilities of the current guest access:
Your guests' WiFi use is completely separated from your home network. Out of the box,
the hotspot is configured to provide access to surfing and email services.
You can trigger the hotspot via a timetable, and have usage logged and reported daily via an automatic
push mail.

Also new is the practical, printable overview of the information needed to register with your wireless network
and that of your guests.
Besides SSID and wireless key, it also presents a QR code for your hotspot for a convenient connection setup.
The new private hotspot is also available in conjunction with the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater.


FRITZ!Box Ready for Vectoring

With the new FRITZ!OS, your FRITZ!Box is ready for the next generation of VDSL technology and speed,
enabling rates of 100 MBit/s and more possible by eliminating electromagnetic interference between
telephone lines in the vicinity. All VDSL-capable FRITZ!Box models support vectoring in performance
mode ("full vectoring").


Improvements for MyFRITZ!, Parental Control and Smart Home

These services have also seen several improvements.

You can have yourself informed about incoming calls from specific numbers via e-mail, so you always know who
wants to contact you wherever you have email access.

MyFRITZ!, the secure cloud service where your data never leaves your control, now offers expanded FRITZ!NAS,
call history and answering machine functions. Its new design is clearer and more functional and automatically
adjusts to your display size (including mobile devices). In addition, Smart Home devices are now better integrated.

Parent control has been extended to the guest access: Internet access can be restricted to specific services such
as web surfing and e-mail. The online budget for specific devices (such as your children's gaming consoles or
notebooks) can now be combined in a profile.

In the Smart Home area, FRITZ!Box users can be assigned different access rights to Smart Home devices. Multiple devices
can be combined in a group and set together, time customization options have been improved and devices can be automatically
switched off when consuming less power (i.e. in standby mode).

FRITZ!OS 6.01 also brings new telephony features, an improved media player for the FRITZ!Fon, and support for intercom systems
(including easy setup over the FRITZ!Box GUI) so that it is no possible to answer the doorbell with your phone.
Another new feature is support for "SIP trunking", which offers an economical communication solution for small offices.

VPN - Securely Connected with the FRITZ!Box
Tried and true, reliable and secure: With VPN - using the common industry standard IPsec - you can connect your notebook or
smartphone securely with your home or office network from anywhere in the world. As recent events have shown,
secure data encryption is a must - especially for businesses.

The new FRITZ!OS makes setting up a VPN connection much simpler. All of the required installation steps can be taken right
in the FRITZ!Box user interface. Using your notebook or smartphone, you can connect securely to your FRITZ!Box at home
wherever you are, and access your home network without restrictions.
FRITZ!Box supports a variety of usage scenarios: You can even connect multiple locations to a secure shared network.

New with FRITZ!OS 6.06:
-DSL: fixes a problem, that could cause certain line cards to crash when changing settings in the FRITZ!Box
-DSL: fixes a problem with bandplan 997
-system: general stability improved


New with FRITZ!OS 6.03:
