This year’s buzzword has been Wi-Fi 6, which has been released by nearly every major company. However, if your home router supports Wi-Fi 6, merely acquiring a new Wi-Fi 6 phone and leaving it at that makes little sense. After all, your phone cannot transmit a Wi-Fi 6 signal unless it receives one from a Wi-Fi 6 router!
While the market is already saturated with Wi-Fi 6 routers, Huawei just released the HUAWEI AX3 Router, which supports Wi-Fi 6 Plus.Follow hostspotnews.com for more updates
At first glance
The all-white HUAWEI AX3 (Dual-Core Band Wi-Fi 6 Plus) Router is incredibly pleasing to the eye and would look great in any home. The quad-antenna design is a traditional style that is both sleek and slightly futuristic.
The rounded key with the H-shaped emblem on the top surface functions as a pairing button for the router and other Huawei products. The four folding antennae undoubtedly create an impact, implying its rock-steady and dependable character. The improved wireless network capabilities are visually represented by a prominent, distinctive silver Wi-Fi 6 Plus logo.
Wi-Fi 6 is the most recent version of wireless communication technology, with significant enhancements over the Wi-Fi 5 standard. When a large number of devices are connected to the same network, Wi-Fi 6 improves network speed, capacity, and energy efficiency while lowering latency and improving connection reliability.
Huawei’s Wi-Fi 6 Plus, on the other hand, is based on the strong Wi-Fi 6 standard but contains additional performance enhancements thanks to proprietary Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 processors. Wi-Fi 6 Plus increases individual device speeds and readily penetrates walls or other impediments without being severely diminished.
HUAWEI Wi-Fi AX3 Router: Specs
The regular AX3 dual-core variant has a frequency bandwidth of 160 MHz and may thus attain speeds of up to 3000 Mbps. Enjoy uninterrupted streaming and gaming with OFDMA, which stands for Orthogonal Frequency Division Numerous Access and lets multiple devices to share the same channel. The HUAWEI AX3 allows simultaneous transmissions of four devices at 2.4 GHz, 16 devices at 5 GHz, or up to 128 devices on both bands at the same time.
HUAWEI AX3 router also cuts power consumption by 30% by negotiating wake-up time among connected devices to avoid spending power while waiting or in standby mode.
HUAWEI Wi-Fi AX3 Router: Speed and coverage
HUAWEI AX3 routers with Wi-Fi 6 Plus provide 160 MHz bandwidth, which is a significant boost over the 80 MHz supplied by Wi-Fi 5. Through Dynamic Narrow Bandwidth, intelligent network slicing, and chipset collaboration, Huawei’s technology also enables dependable signal beaming from a Huawei Wi-Fi 6-supporting phone to the router. This framework increases the power spectral density to guarantee that the phone’s data reaches the router as intended, allowing the Wi-Fi signal to break through an extra wall and provide powerful internet for everyone in your home, regardless of which room they are in.
The AX3’s backward compatibility with Wi-Fi 5 makes it even more flexible, allowing Huawei phones that support Wi-Fi 5 to use the 160 MHz channel capacity as well. You may be confident that your older devices will continue to benefit from the unique Wi-Fi 6 features!
HUAWEI Wi-Fi AX3 Router in action
An impromptu test with the HUAWEI AX3 router indicated a download speed of 1,498 Mbps and an upload speed of 1,594 Mbps, with a latency of only 2.82ms. This is a significant improvement over a Wi-Fi 5 router, which typically tops out at 369 Mbps for downloads and drops precipitously to 182 Mbps behind a wall. However, with the HUAWEI AX3, the connection is still a more-than-sufficient 282 Mbps despite the wall.
Setting up a HUAWEI Wi-Fi AX3 Router
Connect the router’s WAN port to your modem, then download and launch the AI Life app, and follow the on-screen instructions – that’s all there is to it. While doing so, there will be an option to sync the broadband account name and password from the previous router, which will be a godsend for someone like me who has difficulties remembering such information!
If you live in a large house and are concerned that a single router won’t be able to cover every room, acquire two AX3 routers, or even three – or, if your old Wi-Fi 5 router is also a Huawei product, re-use it by connecting it to the new AX3 – to establish a sprawling mesh network under a single Wi-Fi name. The appropriate channel will then be automatically picked for you based on your real-time position as you walk around the house, ensuring a consistent signal on your phone.
The AI Life app is useful for router maintenance, such as checking the condition of a router or configuring guest Wi-Fi. T1x Vivo
