  • 4K-QAM Data Transmission

    4K-QAM takes data transmission rates to new heights. By packing signals more densely, 4K-QAM allows you to transmit more information within the same bandwidth. Imagine upgrading from a standard delivery truck to a massive cargo carrier: with 4K-QAM, your data packets can carry more “merchandise” (data) in each transmission. Compared to WiFi 6, 4K-QAM can improve data transmission rates by up to 20%, meaning faster downloads, smoother streaming, and quicker uploads.

  • Dual-Band Multi-Link

    Dual-band Multi-Link Operation (MLO) intelligently manages traffic and aggregates bandwidth across both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, reducing congestion and maximizing throughput. Connecting to multiple bands enables seamless switching where your data will be allocated to the most suitable band to reduce latency.
