Huawei launches new mesh routers for smart homes
Huawei recently announced the HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 3 and HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7, further expanding its product portfolio for mesh routers. Available in two packages, the new Huawei smart mesh routers provide blazing-fast Wi-Fi 6 Plus connection speeds for up to 250 devices within a 6,000-square-foot radius, perfect for large households that demand high-speed, reliable and secure internet connectivity for anyone on the go. House. With a white race track design and a slim form factor, HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 fits into any interior with style.
HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 supports AX6600 Tri-Band and features eight streams for extreme speeds of up to 6,600 Mbps, enabling smooth streaming of 8K media. The new smart mesh router also supports HarmonyOS Mesh+, including a wide range of networking solutions to ensure top Wi-Fi 6 Plus mesh performance for all users. Setup is simple, requiring just a few simple steps to set up the home network, and One-Touch Connect allows users to securely connect their smartphones to the mesh network with a single tap.
For network management, users can use tools available on the compatible HUAWEI AI Life app to visualize the coverage and self-diagnosis of network problems. Privacy and security are ensured by HUAWEI HomeSec, a comprehensive security solution that supports the latest encryption standards to protect users from malicious attacks.
Blazing-fast internet connection for the whole family
HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 is a new Wi-Fi 6 Plus mesh router designed to provide whole-home coverage even for large households. It supports the AX6600 Tri-Band, which consists of a 5GHz high band that provides data transfer rates up to 4.804Mbps, a 5GHz low band that supports up to 1201Mbps, and the 2.4GHz channel for speeds up to 574Mbps.
Combined, the tri-band router supports speeds of up to 6,600 Mbps, which is enough to satisfy even some of the most demanding household applications, such as 8K media streaming. HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 also supports 4K QAM and 4×4 MIMO, allowing phones to take advantage of the 5G High band for high-speed Internet connectivity.
HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 is equipped with eight high-quality signal amplifiers, each dedicated to processing a specific frequency range. This allows a single unit of HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 to provide WiFi coverage up to 3,000 square feet. Users can also connect the two smart routers together to form a mesh network that provides signal coverage up to an area of 6,000 square feet. Supporting up to 250 simultaneously connected devices ranging from laptops, tablets, smartphones to smart speakers, HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 delivers stable connectivity for all family members whether they’re making conference calls, watching TV, or gaming.
Reap the benefits of mesh networking
With HarmonyOS Mesh+, HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 supports Tri-Band Super Networking, which combines the tri-band channels to form a connection overlay. This allows users to take full advantage of the high theoretical speed by maximizing bandwidth usage and throughput. Not only does it deliver exceptional speeds, but it also increases network efficiency by 17 percent.
HarmonyOS Mesh+ also enables Super Seamless Roaming, which supports eight roaming technologies to keep roaming switching latency as low as 50ms, giving users the freedom to move around their connected devices at home without sacrificing network quality.
The router also supports Load Balancing to redirect traffic on the high-speed channel to other frequency ranges to avoid network congestion. For the best user experience, mobile phones receive preferential treatment by default as they take precedence over the 5GHz high band for improved connection stability and signal reception.
Smarter ways to set up, connect and manage
The HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 is easy to set up and requires no technical expertise to get the network online. Users just need to connect the routers to the power supply and follow the instructions on the HUAWEI AI Life app to set up their home networks. The HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 also comes with four adaptive Gigabit WAN/LAN ports, which means users can connect their WAN and LAN Ethernet cables to any of the ports during the installation process.
Pairing a smartphone with the HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 is equally intuitive as the router supports NFC, allowing users to tap an Android smartphone against the router to connect. This is especially useful for users who have guests over as it allows users to share access to their Wi-Fi without sharing their password.
The HUAWEI AI Life app supports a wide range of network management tools, such as Smart Diagnosis, which helps users to easily troubleshoot network problems. Users can also view a visualized heatmap of their network coverage so they can plan their router placements and eliminate network blind spots.
From the app, users can access the full list of devices connected to the router, allowing them to disconnect unwanted or unidentified devices from the network. Parents can also use the built-in Parental Controls settings to set time limits and content restrictions for their children to prevent them from being exposed to age-appropriate content.
Enjoy the security and privacy every home deserves
Consumers today expect more than just speed from a home router. They also want their routers to support a range of security features that can protect them and their families from potential online risks. HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 maintains security and privacy for all connected devices in the home with HUAWEI HomeSec support. It provides comprehensive protection against malicious attacks and viruses through Anti-Brute Force and LAN Firewall. It also uses the latest WPA3 authentication and encryption standard to provide additional protection for connected devices.
Price and availability
HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 7 will be available from December 16 from AED 1999, and HUAWEI WiFi Mesh 3 from AED 1199 on Huawei e-store, Huawei Experience Stores and select retailers in the UAE. Consumers in the UAE will receive HUAWEI Freelace with every purchase of HUAWEI Mesh 7 and HUAWEI Smart Scale 3 with every purchase of HUAWEI Mesh 3.
