First Impressions: Wi-Fi 6 Better Performance

The Blast MESH is a next-generation router that supports Wi-Fi 6 technology, which offers 4x faster speeds, better performance in congested environments, and improved power efficiency compared to Wi-Fi 5 routers. With the BLAST MESH, you can enjoy faster download and upload speeds, lower latency, and better coverage, making it ideal for bandwidth-intensive tasks such as online gaming, 4K streaming, and multiple device connections.

Wi-Fi 6 - Up to 30% increased coverage

The value of improved coverage with Wi-Fi 6 to households can be significant. It means that users can experience more reliable and stable wireless connections throughout their home, with fewer dead spots or areas with weak signal strength. This can enable seamless streaming of high-definition videos, online gaming, video conferencing, and other bandwidth-intensive activities in various parts of the home without experiencing lag, buffering, or dropouts.

Additionally, with the increasing number of connected devices in modern households, such as smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, smart home devices, and more, having improved coverage with Wi-Fi 6 can ensure that all devices can connect and perform optimally without experiencing connectivity issues. This can lead to a better overall user experience and satisfaction with the wireless network performance in a household.

What is Wi-Fi 6?

Connect More Devices Seamlessly without congestion

Wi-Fi 6 can support a larger number of devices concurrently, making it ideal for modern households with multiple connected devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, gaming consoles, smart home devices, and more. With the proliferation of smart devices and the increasing demand for bandwidth-intensive applications and services, having a router that can handle more devices is crucial to ensure smooth and uninterrupted connectivity for all devices in a household.

This is especially important in today's digital age where many households have multiple family members working or studying from home, streaming videos, playing online games, and using smart home devices simultaneously. Wi-Fi 6's ability to handle more devices can help prevent network congestion, reduce lag, and ensure a stable and reliable connection for all devices, leading to a better overall user experience and productivity.

7 x Improved Security Features compared with Wi-Fi 5 routers

Our BLAST MESH system gives better Security standard routers brought from retail outlets

  1. WPA3 Encryption: Wi-Fi 6 routers generally support the latest wireless security standard known as Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3). WPA3 offers stronger encryption and improved security compared to the older WPA2 standard used in Wi-Fi 5 routers, providing enhanced protection against unauthorized access and potential security threats.

  2. Enhanced Parental Controls: Wi-Fi 6 routers may have advanced parental control features that allow users to restrict or block access to specific websites, set up time-based usage limits, and manage content filtering for connected devices. This can help parents to manage and monitor internet usage for their children and ensure a safer online experience.

  3. Advanced Threat Detection and Prevention: Managed BLAST MESH routers have built-in security features such as advanced threat detection and prevention mechanisms, including Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), to detect and block potential cyber threats or malicious activities, such as malware, viruses, and unauthorized access attempts.

  4. Secure Guest Network: Wi-Fi 6 routers may offer the ability to set up a separate guest network with its own unique password, keeping guest devices isolated from the main home network, providing an additional layer of security to protect the main network and connected devices from potential security risks associated with guest devices.

  5. Firmware and Security Updates: Managed BLAST MESH routers may receive regular firmware and security updates from the manufacturer, which can help to patch known vulnerabilities, fix bugs, and improve overall security.

  6. User Authentication and Access Control: Wi-Fi 6 routers may have features that allow for user authentication and access control, such as MAC address filtering, allowing users to specify which devices are allowed to connect to the network, enhancing the security of the wireless network and preventing unauthorized access.

  7. Secure Configuration and Management: Wi-Fi 6 routers may provide secure configuration options, such as the ability to change default login credentials, enable HTTPS access for remote management, and set up secure password policies, ensuring that the router itself is protected against potential security threats.
