Actiontec Turbocharges In-home Wi-Fi with High-performance 802.11ac Wireless Network Extenders

Award-winning extenders eliminate dead zones in the home Wi-Fi network, while delivering wired and wireless Gigabit speeds throughout the home

Sunnyvale, Calif. – September 22, 2015 – Do you want faster Wi-Fi in your home and the ability to stream multiple HD movies and TV shows at a time without any glitches. Actiontec Electronics’ new family of 802.11ac Wireless Network Extenders delivers whole-home connectivity, with Gigabit wired and wireless speeds for faster HD video streaming and online gaming on any device, in any location in the home.

The award-winning wireless network extenders make an ideal gift, as they take just minutes to install and are compatible with virtually any home network or Internet router. Homeowners will get an instant performance boost in their home network without having to run any new wires.

While service providers now offer ultra-broadband services with speeds up to hundreds of megabits per second, the typical home network isn’t designed to maintain those speeds throughout all areas. Slow Wi-Fi networks, dead zones, and network congestion limit the full potential of the connected lifestyle. These connectivity issues will intensify as people increase the number of devices that are connected to the home network, including smart TVs, tablets, and gaming devices.

The new 802.11ac Wireless Network Extender family includes both coax and Ethernet-based models. The WCB6200Q uses the latest bonded MoCA 2.0 technology to extend the router’s signal through the home’s existing coax cabling and bring a fast and reliable 802.11ac Wi-Fi signal to those areas of the home that can’t be reached with the existing router. The Ethernet-based WEB6000Q can plug into the Ethernet port of the subscriber’s existing router or gateway and provides an instant upgrade to 802.11ac.

“We have been working with some of the biggest broadband service providers in North America to deliver a better wireless experience inside the home,” said Brian Henrichs, chief business development officer at Actiontec. “We are excited to release the new 802.11ac wireless network extenders to ensure people have faster, more reliable and better performing Wi-Fi in order to enjoy all their devices, HD content and apps.”

The Actiontec network extenders feature the latest advances in Wi-Fi technology. For example, with support for 4x4 802.11ac, the WxB6x00Q offers four streams of data for better performance, while Multi-User MIMO delivers the best possible performance when simultaneously streaming and gaming on multiple devices. In addition, Actiontec implemented a new antenna design that uniquely optimizes antenna placement in three dimensions.
