802.11ac with dual band.

With three-stream 802.11ac technology, the AirPort Extreme Base Station takes Wi-Fi speeds over the top. Now you can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps – triple the previous 802.11n standard.

Beamforming puts the focus on your device.

With 802.11ac technology comes the intelligent, powerful beamforming antenna array. Most base station antennas emit an equal and constant Wi-Fi signal in all directions. But the beamforming antenna array is smarter – it knows where an 802.11ac device is on the network. Then AirPort Extreme targets its signal to that device. So your Wi-Fi signal is stronger, clearer, and faster.

Easy to setup

With AirPort Extreme, getting your new Wi-Fi network up and running takes less time – and less effort – than making a cup of coffee. That’s because a setup assistant is built into iOS and into AirPort Utility for OS X. As soon as you plug in your AirPort Extreme and connect it to your DSL or cable modem, you can follow the simple instructions on your Mac or iOS device. There are no complicated steps to follow and no obscure terminology to learn. The setup assistant does all the work, so you don’t have to.
