Amped Wireless today announced that its new flagship ATHENA HighPower AC2600 Wi-Fi Router with MU-MIMO is now available. Designed to meet the needs of demanding, high activity households with multiple devices, the ATHENA provides enough horsepower to easily manage music downloads, video chats, 4K content streaming and gaming all at the same time for everyone.
Featuring MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multi-Input, Multi-Output) technology, the ATHENA eliminates buffering by allowing for simultaneous data streaming to multiple devices.
The ATHENA, powered by the Qualcomm Internet Processor with a 1.4GHz Dual Core, is capable of handling the most demanding network traffic. To achieve unmatched Wi-Fi coverage, the ATHENA features four high gain, 5dBi, dual band antennas, and 16 total amplifiers (4 x 2.4GHz transmitting amplifiers, 4 x 2.4GHz receiving amplifiers, 4 x 5GHz transmitting amplifiers, 4 x 5GHz receiving amplifiers). By harnessing this much power in one router, Amped Wireless has made it possible for the ATHENA to push Wi-Fi signals through walls, ceilings, floors and other obstructions into many areas where standard routers cannot reach.
Additionally, the ATHENA features 4 Antenna Technology to simultaneously stream four streams of Wi-Fi to all users reaching a total combined speed of up to 2.53Gbps (5GHz up to 1733Mbps and 2.4GHz up to 800Mbps). Four Antenna Technology also ensures that Wi-Fi coverage is maximized throughout an office, home or backyard.
