When it comes to broadband, there’s a clear-cut answer to the perpetual chicken-and-egg debate – the egg! No, hang on – the chicken! Whichever it is, while the powers-that-be make wildly optimistic statements as to when the expansion of broadband will be completed in Germany (their credibility slowly plummeting to the depths attained in the New Berlin Airport debacle), the developers at Berlin-based communications specialist AVM are as consistent as ever with their fact-based truths. AVM is proudly rolling out its latest Fritz!-OS 6.50 at CeBIT 2016 in Hannover and showcasing some other impressive hardware that’s already fit for future broadband technology in its truly ground-breaking, dazzling new Fritz!Boxes.
DSL, cable, glass-fiber or LTE – there’s a perfect Fritz!Box for each and every choice of Internet access. Waiting in the wings for the imminent VDSL speed boost is the new high-end flagship FRITZ!Box 7580, which from the 2nd quarter of 2016 is set to provide even faster, more intelligent WLAN for multiple mobile devices on home networks thanks to its multi-user MIMO technology. In fact, suppliers will be offering two additional versions of the FB 7580 – the FB 7581 for SuperVector 35b and bonding and the FB 7582 for SuperVector 35b and G.fast. Cable customers will also be given a speed boost with the forthcoming FRITZ!Box 6590 Cable and its 32x8 DOCSIS channel bundling and strong WLAN with multi-user MIMO. Then there’s the FRITZ!Box 4040 – the enhanced successor to the modemless entry-level 4020 – which is set to become the ideal WLAN router for today’s networked homes thanks to its WAN port, four gigabit LAN connections and dual WLAN AC + N.
