Netgear RAX50

details: 6-Stream AX5400 WiFi 6 Router
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2020-01-09
updated: 2020-01-10
Built with the latest generation WiFi 6 technology, the Netgear Nighthawk AX6 6-Stream AX5400 WiFi 6 router provides speeds up to 5.4Gbps (2.4GHz AX 600Mbps + 5GHz AX: 4.8Gbps) so you can connect, stream, and download faster to newer mobile devices.

A 1.5GHz triple-core processor ensures stable performance for concurrent real-time applications such as mulitmedia streaming, online gaming, and audio/video chats. Engineered to deliver up to 4 times the data capacity over previous standards, WiFi 6 technology with OFDMA, 160MHz channel support, and 1024 QAM vastly improves network efficiency.

Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) enables efficient data scheduling so that more transmissions can be sent at the same time, resulting in a capacity increase in your network. This increased or available bandwidth allows you to add more devices to your network. Nighthawk AX6 supports uplink and downlink OFDMA to efficiently use air-time with better frequency reuse, reduced latency, and increased network efficiency. This is extremely useful for latency sensitive applications such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and Internet of things (IoT) sensors.

High-powered amplifiers increase range for reliable whole home network. This next-gen router is recommended for medium to large homes, suitable for up to 25 connected devices.
