Xiaomi launches its fastest WiFi 6 router: specs, price and release date

Finally, the company has presented its new WiFi 6 router and we are going to talk about its specs, price, and release date. This new router offers almost twice the speed of the previous model, in addition to multiple other improvements. Let’s go with all the news.

Xiaomi had several other models with WiFi 6 technology until now. The best one was the Xiaomi Mi AIoT Router AX3600, which, as its name suggests, reached up to 3600 MB/s.

The new Xiaomi Mi Router AX6000 breaks all those records by offering up to 6.000MB/s speeds. It features 4K QAM (4096QAM) technology, which allows for even more compressed data and more efficient use of the spectrum. Thanks to this, it has an efficiency of 20% higher than the model that uses 1024 QAM. With this small improvement, the device is able to offer a higher speed in the same signal compared to other models.

It has WPA3, BSS Coloring, IPv6, and more

The router has six independent signal amplifiers, being able to dedicate each antenna to a specific signal so that it has a greater range in a specific direction. The device is compatible with mesh WiFi, as well as can be the center of management of the IoT. It is possible to connect up to 248 different devices. Each device can be added by simply pressing the “+” button on the router, so you don’t need to see the WiFi key on the computer or the device.

It also has a full 4 channel 160MHz bandwidth, being able to take advantage of the enormous speeds supported by mobiles such as the Xiaomi Mi 11. This model also incorporates a new 2.5GB/s ethernet port, preparing for future networks that exceed this speed in the near future. Thus, we have two ports that can act as LAN or WAN (only one at 2.5GB/s), and two others with 1GB/s LAN.

It also supports other recent features on the market, such as Beamforming to direct the signal to the location of the devices, IPv6, and WPA3 protocol to protect our devices. Unfortunately, this device is not yet compatible with WiFi 6E of 6GHz, so we will have to wait until 2021 to be able to buy a router with these features at an affordable price that can make use of the new band, which offers even more speed than 5GHz.
