After many years leading the field on the circuit, the Fritz!Boxes series from Berlin-based AVM have their multi-functionality and user-friendly operation to thank for their commercial success in Internet access technology. The two elite newcomers FRITZ!Box 7590 for DSL and FRITZ!Box 6590 Cable that AVM unveiled at CeBIT 2017 place the company in pole position to defend its title as reigning market leader. Both devices hit the shelves at the beginning of June this year with a recommended retail price of 269 euros.
While the new FRITZ!Box 7590, which supports 35b supervectoring, can reach speeds of to 300 MBit/s at the DSL connection, the FRITZ!Box 6590 Cable goes even further, with speeds as high as 1.7 GBit/s thanks to its 32x8 DOCSIS 3.0 channel bonding. Both models sport ultra-fast dual-band Wireless AC + N with 4x4 multi-user MIMO (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) to support multiple mobile devices and at high range. What's more, AVM is out to win customers with its state-of-the-art hardware architecture, fast gigabit LAN and a complete DECT system for telephony and smart home applications. The new-look FRITZ!Box 7590 can be used for all-IP, ISDN and analog lines, although users remain free to use their existing analog or ISDN devices independently of the connection. And if the FRITZ!Box 6590 Cable's enviable package of intelligent WLAN, integrated telephone system and four gigabit LAN ports is not already enough to beat the competition hands down, it even boasts DVB-C streaming for watching free-to-view cable TV on smartphones and tablets. As users have come to expect from AVM, the FRITZ!OS operating system on board the new Fritz!Boxes offers a host of convenient functions, including integrated firewall and WLAN guest access.
