Netgear introduces a new tri-band Wi-Fi 6 router: the NETGEAR NighthawkTri-band AX12 12-Stream Wi-Fi 6 Router (RAX200). The Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 (RAX200) is a Wi-Fi 6 router that uses three bands at a combined Wi-Fi speed of 10.8 Gbps3.

According to Netgear, it is an ideal solution for households with a growing number of connected devices that simultaneously compete for Internet bandwidth. Tri-Band Wi-Fi provides an additional Wi-Fi band to reduce network congestion while providing a better connection across multiple devices. The latest Wi-Fi 6 technology offers four times the data capacity compared to the previous generation of Wi-Fi routers (802.11ac), also known as Wi-Fi 5.

Large bandwidth

More and more devices are connected to the Internet. People are also using more and more technology in their homes that is connected to their wifi network. Think of speakers, security cameras, thermostats and more. For this reason, there is an increasing demand for Wi-Fi networks in the home.

With the Nighthawk AX12 Tri-band Wi-Fi 6 router, households can expect a combined bandwidth of 10.8 Gbps for all their network needs: from simultaneous 4K/8K UHD video streaming to gaming and other high bandwidth activities. With one Wi-Fi name for all three bands, the Nighthawk RAX200 intelligently directs all connected devices to the appropriate Wi-Fi band based on the device’s speed, using Smart Connect technology to make the most of the available bandwidth.

Increased capacity

With the 1.8GHz quad-core processor and support for multi-gig internet connections, the Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 router facilitates the increasing internet speeds needed in our households. The Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 delivers faster speeds and is prepared for the latest Wi-Fi technology of the near future, Wi-Fi 6, which will be used by computers, mobile devices and IoT devices.

At the same time, all your existing wifi devices remain supported. The Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 can provide more than one gigabit of throughput to mobile devices that support 160 MHz bandwidth. Finally, the Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 Wi-Fi 6 has eight antennas under the bonnet. These are positioned so that they provide the greatest possible coverage for the router.

The Netgear Tri-band AX12 is available for a suggested retail price of $599.99 (€529.82). The recommended retail price for the Benelux will be announced at a later date.
