CommScope's family of ARRIS SURFboard products will be expanded during this year's virtual Consumer Electronics Show with the introduction of two new members to its gigabit whole-home mesh portfolio—the ARRIS SURFboard mAX and the ARRIS SURFboard mAX Express.

The SURFboard mAX is the latest tri-band Wi-Fi 6 mesh system and features the industry's newest 802.11ax standard with increased data capacity to handle a customer's whole-home network needs. Designed to reduce dead zones in the home and compatible with many internet plans, the SURFboard mAX system features an advanced tri-band Wi-Fi 6 mesh design with two routers, each delivering up to 6.6 Gbps speeds and providing a total coverage area of up to 5,500 sq. ft. Its third band, with 4×4 Wi-Fi 6, provides a dedicated backhaul to ensure the maximum service speeds across the entire home.

The upcoming SURFboard mAX Express is a single extender unit that is bundled with the SURFboard mAX. It is a tri-band Wi-Fi 6 wall-plug unit and the bundle offers, not only the power and capacity of tri-band Wi-Fi 6 mesh system, but adds the convenience of a smaller size to provide whole-home coverage (up to 5,550 sq. ft.) as a two-unit system. Regardless of its compact wall-mounted design, it supports tri-band Wi-Fi up to 6.6 Gbps speeds, connected to the SURFboard mAX router with a dedicated 4×4 Wi-Fi 6 backhaul link.

During this year's virtual CES, CommScope will also showcase other SURFboard products—the SURFboard S33 DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem and the SURFboard Central app. With a 2.5 Gbps Ethernet port plus a second 1 Gbps Ethernet port, the SURFboard S33 DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem is capable of providing a total throughput of up to 3.5 Gbps powering the most advanced home networks and enabling simultaneous video conferencing, multiple 4K ultra-HD video streams and online gaming sessions with confidence. This enables customers with even the highest speed broadband subscription plans such as gigabit or multi-gigabit plan to get the most use of their plans and less buffering.
