Connect More, Congest Less with OFDMA

The DIR-X1560 uses Wi-Fi 6’s cutting-edge Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology. Small data packets destined for multiple devices are transmitted together and never have to queue up again. Perfect for Smart Homes filled with bandwidth-hungry IoT devices battling for bandwidth.

Without OFDMA

OFDMA

MU-MIMO

MU-MIMO technology helps distribute the flow of data to multiple devices simultaneously. With Wi-Fi 6 technology the DIR-X1560 leverages OFDMA and MU-MIMO for better efficiency of upstream AND downstream transmissions, unlike previous Wi-Fi 5 technology where MU-MIMO could only operate in downstream transmissions. This combination greatly increases capacity, coverage and performance especially in ultra-high-density environments.

Real-world Scenarios, Real-world Results

We put the DIR-X1560 to the test against our nearest competitors and the results speak for themselves. The DIR-X1560 outperformed our nearest competitor with consistently faster download speeds over greater distances, everytime.

5 GHz Band

2.4 GHz Band

Extended Coverage, Reduced Interference

High-gain antennas, built-in power amplifiers and beamforming technology allow the DIR-X1560 to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi and focus a stronger signal in the direction of your devices to ensure a stronger, faster and more reliable Wi-Fi experience. Meanwhile a long OFDM symbol ensures even greater Wi-Fi range, especially outside the home.

 

 

 

The Future of Wireless Encryption

One of the biggest concerns with IoT devices and Wi-Fi networks is privacy. The latest industry-standard 128-bit encryption is the most advanced security standard available and begins a new era of wireless encryption, ensuring greater privacy throughout users’ devices and networks.

Conserve Energy, Save Battery Life

Target Wake Time (TWT) helps reduce battery consumption for connected devices by communicating with them and deciding when and how often the device requires data transfers. TWT increases the device’s sleep time, therefore cleverly conserving energy and helping save battery life.

DIR-X1560 TWT

Always Up-To-Date

Firmware upgrades can be a pain, but with the DIR-X1560, they are completely automated. Upgrades are so smooth, you won’t even notice them. On top of that, the DIR-X1560’s Dual Image functionality saves a recovery image as a backup before an upgrade. So, in the unlikely event an upgrade fails, the system has your pre-existing configuration to fall back on.
