AirTies has introduced a new line of dual-band and tri-band WiFi 6 mesh extenders and routers.
The Istanbul-based vendor said the devices will be brought to market in “the coming months” and that it already has deployment deals with “multiple Tier 1 service providers.”
The new products include the Air4960 WiFi 6 extender, a dual-band device that incorporates Broadcom’s BCM67532 chipset and has integrated 2.4 GHz 2x2 WiFi 6. A BCM43684 chipset delivers 5 GHz 4x4 WiFi 6 performance.
The Air4970 tri-band WiFi extender is designed to work with WiFi 6 tri-band gateways and provides a dedicated backhaul channel. It uses a Broadcom BSM6755 chips set with 2x2 dual band concurrent at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, and 5 GBHZ dedicated backhaul with 3x3 WiFi 6 using a BCM6710 chipset.
Finally, the Air4960 WiFi mesh router is designed to support operators using existing cable modems or fiber terminations. The router enables operators to deploy only two devices, integrating the router software into the WiFi 6 mesh extender. Hardwire specs are identical to the Air4960.
“Today’s service providers want WiFi 6 as part of a managed WiFi solution to deliver the best possible home WiFi experience for consumers,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO of AirTies, in a statement. “It’s clear that the number of connected devices is increasing at an accelerated rate, and trends such as UHD video, online gaming, and working from home, are all placing more demands on home networks. To address these evolutions, we’re excited to introduce our new Wi-Fi 6 portfolio, powered by AirTies Smart WiFi and supported by AirTies Cloud.”
