Introducing AX WiFi – The New Standard of WiFi

What is AX WiFi (also known as Wi-Fi 6)?

The demand for data is increasing faster than the capability of current WiFi standards.

This standard of WiFi provides faster speeds and a substantial increase in network capacity, allowing more devices to connect to the network at the same time. AX is especially ideal if you have more than 20 devices connected on one network.

More Efficient WiFi for More Devices

When multiple users simultaneously stream video, download, play games, or run their smart home appliances, the network loses efficiency and performance suffers.

AX WiFi is built to handle more wireless capacity for your growing home network.
