Chinese multinational technology, communication and smart devices has launched its latest HUAWEI Wi-Fi AX3 series which boost capabilities and support for ground breaking Wi-Fi 6 standards.

HUAWEI has used its accumulated expertise in 5G, recognised through its prominent role in formulating the Wi-Fi 6 standards and in developing a pioneering technology that facilitates seamless chip-level collaboration between the router and multiple other devices.

This standout capability enables the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 series products to deliver a blistering, powerful Wi-Fi 6 Plus connection, when used in conjunction with HUAWEI devices.

As the connecting hub for HUAWEI’s revolutionary 1+8+N all-scenario smart life strategy, the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 features financial-level HUAWEI HomeSecTM security safeguards, providing users with an intuitive, lightning-fast, stable, and secure Wi-Fi 6 connection at all times.

HUAWEI Wi-Fi 6 Plus: Breaking down barriers with dynamic narrow bandwidth

The latest HUAWEI AX3 series routers come equipped with Huawei's exclusive Gigahome processor and Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset.

With the Wi-Fi 6 standards as the basis, Huawei has incorporated multi-chip collaborative technology, so as to ensure that the HUAWEI Wi-FI 6 router doubled network speed, alongside enhanced wall penetration capabilities, when used with other Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices.

The Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset made this solution possible, by improving the frequency bandwidth to up to 160 MHz, as well as in realizing on-demand automatic packet fragmentation in narrow-band mode via dynamic narrow-band technology.

This has the effect of stabilizing the working brand frequency bandwidth at 2 MHz, for a wall-penetrating network signal that doesn't stall. Or simply put, users can enjoy faster network near the device, and more stable connections from further distances away.

Easy network accessibility to other devices

The quad-core version of the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 series also provides support for the state-of-the-art Huawei Share option. Simply by tapping an unlocked Android phone with NFC enabled against the router's NFC detection area, users can connect directly to the Wi-Fi network without needing to enter a password.

This feature is particularly handy for catering to house guests, or hotel and restaurant patrons, saving them the time, hassle, and awkwardness associated with asking for and entering a complicated password.

In addition to the exclusive dynamic narrow-band technology, in south Africa,both quad-core and dual core have 2 independent signal amplifiers,

enabling Mesh networking for multiple Huawei routers, and supporting wireless, wired, and hybrid wireless + wired networking modes that expand network access to every nook and cranny in a household or business.

Triangulation and speed

The HUAWEI WiFi 6 Plus takes The HUAWEI WiFi AX3 quad-core version also incorporates HUAWEI HomeSecTM security protections.

An independent security zone (TEE-trusted execution environment) has been built into the Gigahome quad-core chip, and the TrustZone security solution has been constructed from the microkernel.

This solution has obtained the Evaluation Assurance Level-5 (EAL5) certification from Common Criteria, a globally-recognised IT product certification organisation, further attesting to the product's financial-level security safeguards.

Huawei's commitment to eliminating network lag in the Wi-Fi 6 era

Because of its deep understanding of 5G technologies, Huawei has become a major contributor to the Wi-Fi 6 standard. Huawei experts have chaired five Wi-Fi standard working groups, for example, Dr. Osama Aboul-Magd, is the chairman of the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard working group.

Additionally, Huawei has submitted 240 new Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) proposals, accounting for 15% of all proposals, which is more than any other device manufacturer. Huawei has also introduced many advanced 5G technologies into Wi-Fi 6.

Long term investment

Huawei’s long-term investment in Wi-Fi 6, the technology and telecommunication giants not only offer products that support the Wi-Fi 6 standards, but also integrates unique chip collaboration technologies using its self-developed Gigahome Wi-Fi chips.

This enables a range of Huawei Wi-Fi 6 devices to deliver an optimal user experience.

As well as being a leader in Wi-Fi 6 technology, Huawei is proposing a mid- to long-term strategy for building a seamless smart life for consumers in the next 5 to 10 years, based on the 1+8+ N strategy which focuses on five major scenarios.

In this strategy, Wi-Fi routers play a crucial role as connection centers, providing a simple, high-speed, stable, and secure Wi-Fi connection vital for enjoying a high-quality smart life, which is Huawei's long-term objective.

Huawei has invested tens of millions of dollars in developing dedicated chips for routers.

Through the combination of software and hardware at the bottom layer of chips, Huawei has eliminated more than 80% of problems relating to frame freezing, delays, and disconnections.

Huawei has also built a Wi-Fi capability center in Wuhan which houses the most rigorous test environment in the global router industry, meaning that Huawei products can be tested rigorously before becoming available to consumers.

The HUAWEI AX3 Dual-core will be available from 1st December at a price of R1,499 at the Huawei online store and you will receive and addition R200 Huawei online store voucher if you purchase the HUAWEI AX3from the 1st to the 6th December. The AX-3 Quad-core will be available in South Africa in 2021.
