Xiaomi recently officially announced its first Wi-Fi 6E router. The· Mi router AX6000 the price is 599 RMB (about $ 91) It is currently available for booking in China and will be available for first sale. January 8.. It’s packed with the following Wi-Fi features that we’ll discuss shortly: However, without practical illustrations, it is difficult to understand the new technology correctly. With a short clip, Xiaomi did just that, placing the Mi Router AX6000 in the center of a huge stadium and testing the Wi-Fi speeds of the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max and the recently launched Xiaomi Mi 11 at different angles and distances. The goal was to see how much of the 800Mbps broadband bandwidth entering the router would eventually be sent to each phone.
Before burning the comments section, we realize that this is not a suitable scientific or very practical test to perform. It is intended to demonstrate the theoretical benefits of running a state-of-the-art Wi-Fi 6E router on a compatible client device like Mi11. The “loss” that Apple perceives here is due to the fact that it uses a slightly older one. Qualcomm X55 modem with the company’s FastConnect 6800 subsystem for Wi-Fi, Mi11 enjoys the latest and greatest Qualcomm X60 modem with FastConnect 6900. The latter is the new 6GHz band, without going into the technical details. This is one of the main things that the Wi-Fi 6E “E” represents on “basic” Wi-Fi 6. It then performs advanced 4-stream (2×2 + 2×2) dual-band simultaneous (DBS) operations. , 2×2 6 GHz connection and the 2×25 GHz connection above it can be combined to achieve a theoretical maximum peak speed of 3.6 Gbps.
Of course, to get close to the speeds that the Mi Router AX6000 comes in, you need a compatible and competent router. The theoretical maximum aggregate wireless output is 6000MB / s and is also equipped with a 2.5Gbps LAN. The harbor. The latter is compliant with the IEEE 802.3bz standard and can work with existing Cat 5e Ethernet cables, making it a great upgrade path as home internet connections begin to exceed the 1Gbps mark in certain locations.
By the way, compared to the Wi-Fi ac (Wi-Fi 5) major and long-term upgrade “Vanilla” Wi-Fi 6, the Wi-Fi 6E and especially the MiRouter AX6000 have the Wi-Fi 6’s 4×4 160MHz bandwidth. Offers twice the bandwidth of 4×4 80MHz. Next is 4K QAM modulated high speed transmission technology, which claims to compress data transmissions to achieve 20% higher density. Therefore, there is 20% more data transfer at the same time compared to the previous generation 1024 QAM. Leveraging 512MB of onboard RAM, the Mi Router AX6000 promises incredible single-device speed and support for up to 248 simultaneous clients. Functions that will become more important with the spread of IoT technology.
The Mi Router AX6000 features six independent signal amplifiers, ensuring excellent coverage as well as large open stadiums. One router should be able to effectively cover a large three-bedroom apartment. And if you need more, the AX6000 provides support for Xiaomi mesh. It also includes other smart software features such as automatic Wi-Fi password randomization and syncing with Xiaomi smart devices that support Xiaomi ChangKai Connect. The AX6000 can also intelligently identify some Xiaomi / Redmi phones and automatically switch game-specific network optimizations for Wi-Fi traffic as needed.
The international availability of the Mi Router AX6000 has not yet been announced. However, given the speed at which other recent routers from the company, such as the AX3600 and AX5, manage international ROMs and market releases, you may have to wait a bit for the Mi router AX6000.
