Huawei Mobile Kenya has launched its latest HUAWEI WiFi AX3 router series with support for the Wi-Fi 6 standards in Kenya.
Huawei has leveraged its accumulated expertise in 5G, recognized through its prominent role in formulating the Wi-Fi 6 standards, 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.
“Huawei has gone a step further, leveraging its unmatched technical prowess and chip development capabilities to launch the first Wi-Fi 6 Plus router, the HUAWEI WiFi AX3. The routers are surprisingly affordable when you consider that it incorporates Huawei’s exclusive Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chipset and pioneering end-to-end chip collaboration technology. Therefore this is an important gadget to have with you for seamless remote working in whatever location you are in. ” Jim Zhujie, Huawei Country Head said.
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.
It comes 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 WiFi AX3 offers “Wi-Fi 6 Plus” at a 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.
The quad-core version of the HUAWEI WiFi AX3 series also provides support for Huawei Share. 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, the quad-core version packs four independent signal amplifiers (two for the dual-core version), 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.
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-recognized IT product certification organization, further attesting to the product’s financial-level security safeguards.
The Huawei AX3 will be retailing at Kshs 9,999. Other HUAWEI Routers in the market include HUAWEI Wifi WS318 retailing at Kshs 2,999, HUAWEI Wifi WS5200 retailing at Kshs 4,999.
