AVM has made its FRITZ! OS 7.10 available for the FRITZ! Box 7590, the FRITZ! Box 4040 and the FRITZ! Repeater 1750E. The new version of the operating system comes with over fifty updates and improvements in the areas of internet, WiFi, Mesh, telephony and smarthome.
The new version of the operating system includes a stable connection with high data throughput for wireless devices such as smartphones.
In addition, there are several new Mesh functions, which are easy to activate in order to create a wider range of their existing FRITZ! products. This increases the performance of Mesh WiFi from FRITZ! and enables the Mesh system to actively steer wireless LAN devices between FRITZ! Box, FRITZ! Repeater and FRITZ! Powerline/WLAN products.
Users with a second connected FRITZ! Box will also have access to new possibilities in the field of Mesh-telephony on their home network. All FRITZ Boxes in the FRITZ mesh network! OS 7.10 have a common, central phonebook.
Home network control
It also makes it easier for users to stay up to date with events in their home network. If a user has entered an e-mail address for the MyFRITZ! service during the installation of the FRITZ! Box, it will automatically send important information to that address via the new operating system. These include the availability of new versions of the operating system and updates when someone from outside the home network logs into the FRITZ! Box user interface.
The new version of the operating system also makes it easier for guests to register for the FRITZ hotspot. The FRITZ Fon display now has a QR code which makes it possible to quickly log in to the WiFi network. It is also possible to fast forward or rewind music from a media player that is played on the FRITZ! Fon.
FRITZ! OS now also makes it possible to block telephone numbers directly via the FRITZ! Fon. Smarthome devices such as the FRITZ! DECT 200 sockets can also be set as a favourite on the device. This allows users to control their devices from their phones.
OS 7.10 optimizes the Virtual Private Network (VPN) functions of the FRITZ! Box. VPN connections can now be given individual names. The FRITZ Box also offers the ‘Full Tunneling’ function, which allows the entire network traffic to be routed via the VPN connection of the remote site.
It is also possible to set up a VPN connection between one FRITZ! Box and another on the DS-Lite connection, which is accessible via IPv4.
AVM advises all users to check the FRITZ! Box Mesh Overview for updates to other FRITZ! products, such as repeaters and powerline products.
