TP-Link® has launched the Archer AX90, an AX6600 Tri-Band WiFi 6 Router featuring robust WiFi 6 features, a powerful quad-core Broadcom CPU, and the brand new HomeShield™ security system, delivering more value to the high-end router category.
Addressing customers’ privacy and cybersecurity, concerns, TP-Link partnered with Avira™ to arm Archer AX90 with the latest HomeShield™ security system and guard clients and their IoT devices from all cyberattacks. Whether it’s a phone, laptop, TV box, or a smart home camera, the new HomeShield™ protects them all and schedules a daily scan to identify weak points in networks to prevent emerging threats.
Archer AX90 comes with 8-Stream WiFi 6 with OFDMA, 1024-QAM, a faster symbol rate, and TWT, all of which provide faster speed, broader coverage, higher capacity, and better power saving on clients. Archer AX90 also encapsulates 4×4 MU-MIMO and high-end WiFi 6 features HT160, enabling multiple clients to reach up to 4.8 Gbps WiFi speed. It supports simultaneous transmissions with lower latency thanks to OFDMA integration, keeping multiple 8K streams as smooth as possible.
Archer AX90 offers three asymmetrical WiFi 6 bands—4804 Mbps (5 GHz) + 1201 Mbps (5 GHz) + 600 Mbps (2.4 GHz)—to boost signal directions, broaden coverage, clear out congestions, and reduce interference. As different bands work on separate channels, tri-band routers form more signal beams at the same time without creating interference. The different bandwidths for each band make Archer AX90 more affordable than other high-end WiFi 6 routers, while still meeting most home’s needs such as 5 GHz WiFi connections for demanding devices like gaming consoles and working laptops or requiring ample capacity for other clients including legacy devices and IoT.
The whole-new HomeShield powered by Avira makes Archer AX90 the first TP-Link router able to guard IoT smart home devices. Today, routers are the gateway of smart homes and are easily becoming a channel through which hackers infiltrate to exploit vulnerable IoT devices. Given that these attacks either go through or directly target routers, it is mission-critical that the secure positioning of routers is reinforced. With Avira’s “engineered-in-Germany” AI technology and deep antivirus experience, HomeShield on Archer AX90 starts by securing the home WiFi gateway and continues to protect the home network and all devices.
