The future is unstoppable, your Wi-Fi should be too.
Wi-Fi 6 brings next-generation Wi-Fi technology into your home, giving the quantum leap in capacity, speed and range you need to handle all your Wi-Fi demands. Perfect for high-performance, device-dense smart homes.
Experience up to AX1800 speeds while 1024-QAM boosts throughput to devices by up to 25% and 80 MHz contiguous channel width gives even more bandwidth. Up to 6 simultaneous streams let you enjoy faster, more enjoyable 4K streaming, online gaming and more, and should you require them – 4 Gigabit LAN ports and 1 Gigabit WAN port give you faster wired connectivity whenever you wish.
Connect More, Congest Less with OFDMA
The DIR-X1860 uses Wi-Fi 6’s cutting-edge Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology. Small data packets destined for multiple devices are transmitted together and never have to queue up again. Perfect for Smart Homes filled with bandwidth-hungry IoT devices battling for bandwidth.
MU-MIMO technology helps distribute the flow of data to multiple devices simultaneously. With Wi-Fi 6 technology the DIR-X1860 leverages the multi-user version of OFDMA and MU-MIMO for better efficiency of upstream AND downstream transmissions, unlike previous Wi-Fi 5 technology where MU-MIMO could only operate simultaneously in downstream transmissions. This combination greatly increases capacity, coverage and performance in ultra-high-density environments.
Real-world Scenarios, Real-world Results
We put the DIR-X1860 to the test against our nearest competitors and the results speak for themselves. The DIR-X1860 outperformed our nearest competitor with consistently faster download speeds over greater distances, everytime.
Extended Coverage, Reduced Interference
High-gain antennas, built-in power amplifiers and beamforming technology allow the DIR-X1860 to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi and focus a stronger signal in the direction of your devices to ensure a stronger, faster and more reliable Wi-Fi experience. Meanwhile a long OFDM symbol ensures even greater Wi-Fi range, especially outside the home.
The Future of Wireless Encryption
One of the biggest concerns with Wi-Fi networks and connected device is privacy. The latest 128-bit encryption is the most advanced standard available and begins a new era of wireless encryption, ensuring greater privacy throughout users’ networks and devices.
Conserve Energy, Save Battery Life
Target Wake Time (TWT) helps reduce battery consumption for connected devices by communicating with them and deciding when and how often the device requires data transfers. TWT increases the device’s sleep time, therefore cleverly extending the battery life of client devices and optimizing spectrum utilization.
