Fritz is one of the oldest companies in terms of routers are concernedand taking advantage of the celebration of AOTEC 2022, they have presented new fiber optic routers and also smart WiFi repeaters.
This German company is already known for being one of the first to adopt new technologies in its routers, the same ones that they have a pretty recognizable design languagebeing the same white and red, and that surely you recognize them at first.
With this, at the AOTEC fair they have presented 3 intelligent routers, the FRITZ!Box 5590 Fiber Router, FRITZ!Box 5530 Fiber Router and FRITZ!Box 4060 Router.
As for smart WiFi repeaters, they have also presented 3 models, the FRITZ!Repeater 6000 Wi-Fi Repeater, FRITZ!Repeater 3000 Wi-Fi Repeater, FRITZ!Repeater 1200 AX Wi-Fi Repeater.
Router FRITZ!Box 5590 Fiber
This router is the most powerful of the 3 presented today. It has a white and red design, as is typical, and 5 connection indicators. The underside is grayish.
This Fritz!Box 5590 Fiber has support for Wi-Fi 6 with WLAN AXwhich will allow us to reach up to 2,400 MBit/s in 5 GHz networks, and 1,200 MBit/s in 2.4 GHz networks. It has a 4×4 antenna system. And it has two USB 3.0 inputs for printers or hard drives (usually NAS).
Router FRITZ!Box 5530 Fiber
In this case we have a router quite similar to the previous one, although smaller, which can be seen on its side. It has the same color tones as its older brother.
It also has support for WiFi 6 but no WiFi AXfor which in 5 GHz networks it does reach 2,400 MBit/s, but in 2.4 GHz networks it only reaches 600. Besides lacks USB 3.0 ports that the 5590 model does have.
Router FRITZ!Box 4060
This router has a different design from the two previously seen, opting for a more vertical design, with a very predominant white tone, absence of grayish and small touches of red.
This Fritz!Box 4060 has WiFi 6 with support for WiFi AX and a USB 3.0 port. According to the company, this is more adapted to people who enjoy video games.
Wi-Fi Repeater FRITZ!Repeater 6000
This is the first of the repeaters presented today, which will serve to extend the signal of our main router, and allow us to considerably increase the range of our WiFi network, losing the less transfer speed the better.
It has support for Wi-Fi 6, Internet IPv6 and most importantly, WiFi Mesh support. Also has 3 WiFi radio units: 2,400 MBit/s, 2,400 MBit/s (5 GHz) and 1,200 MBit/s (2.4 GHz).
Wi-Fi Repeater FRITZ!Repeater 3000
This younger brother of the previous one maintains a design similar to the first, except for some small support legs that the previous one does have.
In this case We lose support for WiFi 6 by this repeater, reducing the speeds of the 3 WiFi radios at 1,733, 866 (5 GHz) and 400 (2.4 GHz) MBit/s respectively. It does have WiFi Mesh support, just like the 6000.
Wi-Fi Repeater FRITZ!Repeater 1200 AX
The latest repeater presented by the company is a direct plug unit, being of a very small size and prepared to have it in an intermediate plug between the main router and where we want the signal to arrive.
This one has WiFi 6 support, with support for 2,400 MBit/s and 600 MBit/s, for the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz networks, respectively. In addition, it also has WiFi Mesh support.
