Netgear announced the debut of its new tri-band Wi-Fi 6 router, the Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 12-Stream Wi-Fi 6 Router (RAX200) that uses three bands with a combined Wi-Fi speed of 10.8Gbps3. The company claims the new device is an ideal solution for the growing needs of households with an ever-increasing number of connected devices vying for internet bandwidth simultaneously.
Tri-Band Wi-Fi provides an additional Wi-Fi band to reduce congestion and provide a better-connected experience across multiple devices simultaneously. The latest Wi-Fi 6 technology provides four times the amount of data capacity over that of the previous generation of Wi-Fi routers (802.11ac), also now known as Wi-Fi 5.
Using the Nighthawk AX12 Tri-band Wi-Fi 6 router, households can expect a combined 10.8Gbps of bandwidth for all their networking needs from simultaneous 4K/8K UHD video streaming to gaming and other high-bandwidth consuming activities. With a single Wi-Fi name across the three bands, Nighthawk RAX200, using Smart Connect technology, intelligently distributes all the connected devices to the appropriate Wi-Fi band based on the speed of the device ensuring the best utilisation of the available bandwidth.
With its powerful 1.8GHz quad-core processor and support for multi-gig internet connections, the Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 router can deliver more than one Gigabit of throughput to mobile devices that support 160MHz bandwidth.
