Computer information 15/10/2021 445


Huawei’s range of cutting edge smartphones often gets all the attention. However, the company’s latest release, the WiFi AX3 series of routers, is Huawei’s first Wi-Fi 6 Plus routers.

It’s a timely reminder of Huawei’s industry-leading networking technology and how it can improve the way our phones and our homes work.

HUAWEI WIFI AX3: ROBUST SYNERGISTIC TECH ECOSYSTEM

The Huawei WiFi AX3 series routers bring the power of Wi-Fi 6 Plus to home users, which will enhance your network speed and experience; especially when paired with Huawei’s catalogue of Wi-Fi 6 devices.

The addition of the Huawei WiFi AX3 series routers fits in with the company’s vision of creating a robust synergistic tech ecosystem for its users.

When used with other Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices, the Huawei WiFi AX3 routers will deliver superior speed and wall penetration. This means more reliable connectivity and even more possibilities for users who require super-fast connections.How much is Huawei Router South Africa?

Huawei’s Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset has made this leap in performance possible, improving frequency bandwidth up to 160MHz.

“Or simply put, users can enjoy faster network near the device, and more stable connections from further distances away.”

QUAD-CORE VARIANTS

The Huawei WiFi AX3 series routers come in dual-core and quad-core variants, with the quad-core router supporting Huawei Share. This allows users with NFC-enabled devices to connect to the network by tapping it on the router’s NFC detection area.

Gone are the days of having to share your password with guests. This could have lots of uses for restaurants and other hospitality businesses which give their clients free Wi-Fi.

The use of a quad-core design means that the Huawei WiFi AX3 quad-core variant is able to provide more throughput than its current competitors which make use of Intel’s dual-core 800MHz CPUs or Broadcom’s triple-core 1.5GHz CPU.

In addition to this, Huawei-developed Gigahome chips are able to provide faster speeds to Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices due to “chip collaboration acceleration technology”.

NARROWBAND WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY

From a technical standpoint, the Huawei WiFi AX3 series makes use of exclusive narrowband technology. Furthermore, the quad-core version and dual-core version both have two independent signal amplifiers.

This allows Mesh networking for multiple Huawei routers as well as supporting wireless, wired and hybrid networking modes so that you can effectively offer network access in any space.



HUAWEI LEADS THE WAY WITH WI-FI 6

Huawei have brought to bear their deep understanding of 5G technologies in becoming a significant contributor to the development of the Wi-Fi 6 standard.

As an example, Dr Osama Aboul-Magd, the chairman of the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard working group, submitted 15% of the proposals to the (802.11ax) standard, more than any other manufacturer.

This strong leadership role that Huawei have taken in the development of the Wi-Fi 6 standard puts them in pole position to leverage Wi-Fi 6 in its stable of products and maximise their users’ experiences.

HUAWEI HOMESEC SECURITY

While speed is essential, the Huawei WiFi AX3 series routers are also secure and utilise Huawei HomeSec security protections. This delivers financial-level security safeguards to your home network.

Huawei HomeSec obtained the Evaluation Assurance Level-5 (EAL5) certification from Common Criteria, a globally-recognised IT product certification organisation.

Routers, while often overlooked, provide the centre point of the modern connected home experience. It does this by allowing devices to communicate with each other and access the internet at blazing speeds.

The Huawei WiFi AX3 series routers leverage Huawei’s superior networking knowledge and capabilities to increase speed, reduce latency and supercharge the modern smart home and its range of Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices.

PRICING AND AVAILABILITY IN SOUTH AFRICA

The Huawei WiFi AX3 dual-core routers pre-order period in South Africa opened on 23 November. The router carries a price tag of R1 499 and sales from the Huawei Online Store and Incredible Connection will start on 4 December.

Product colour, shape and functions are for reference only. The actual product may vary. Only the AX3 dual-core model is currently available for sale in South Africa, while the quad-core model will be available for purchase in 2021.
