ARRIS International plc has introduced the the SURFboard mAX Pro mesh WiFi system, which is designed to tackle the growing need for Gigabit and multi-Gigabit connectivity throughout the home. The SURFboard mAX Pro system achieves Gigabit service and ubiquitous coverage by combining tri-band, WiFi 6 (802.11ax), 4×4, and mesh to create a future-ready system for constant connectivity.
ARRIS designed the SURFboard mAX Pro system around tri-band to leverage additional frequency bands for more throughput with less interference. The addition of a third, 5 GHz band not only supports a dedicated connection between the two routers in the system — it also enables more connected devices in a single router configuration — a nod to the power users with 30 or more connected devices. By freeing up the first two bands to communicate exclusively with devices in the home, the tri-band system is up to 180 percent faster than a comparable dual-band one, according to ARRIS.
The SURFboard mAX Pro system also features the latest WiFi 6 technology with faster speeds and 4x the range of WiFi 5 (802.11ac). WiFi 6 allows connected devices to use Wi-Fi up to 7x more efficiently, saving precious battery life on mobile phones, tablets and more.
ARRIS will demonstrate the SURFboard mAX Pro Mesh Wi-Fi System at CES in its private suite. For more information, visit www.surfboard.com.
