Huawei’s powerful new Wi-Fi AX3 router is now available for pre-order in South Africa.

As the company’s first Wi-Fi 6 Plus router, it supports download speeds of up to 3,000Mbps with compatible devices, in addition to much-improved wall penetration.

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is a new-generation Wi-Fi standard which is supported by orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA).

It offers the following benefits over the Wi-Fi 5 standard (802.11ac):

  • 3x faster speed – Wi-Fi 6 supports 1024-Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) and a frequency bandwidth of up to 160MHz, which is nearly three-times faster than Wi-Fi 5.
  • 4x larger capacity – OFDMA multi-user technology allows multiple devices to share the spectrum resources: improving the capacity to four-times that of Wi-Fi 5.
  • 66% lower latency – With OFDMA multi-user technology and interference avoidance with BSS coloring, latency is reduced by two thirds, allowing for faster response while connected to multiple devices.
  • 30% lower power consumption – The on-demand wake-up functionality of devices reduces power consumption by 30%. 

Wi-Fi 6 Plus

Thanks to its long-term investment in Wi-Fi technologies, Huawei not only offers products that support the Wi-Fi 6 standard, they also integrate unique chip collaboration technologies using their self-developed Gigahome Wi-Fi chips.

The Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset in the AX3 improves the frequency bandwidth to up to 160MHz, and realises on-demand automatic packet fragmentation in narrow-band mode via dynamic narrow-band technology.

The overall result is not only faster network connectivity closer to the router, but also more stable connections from further distances.

Additionally, the quad-core AX model adds features like HuaweiShare for one tap connections to the Wi-Fi network and Huawei HomeSec security to protect against brute-force attacks.

Its optimal performance can be achieved when used in conjunction with compatible Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices – including smartphones, tablets, and computers.
