Xiaomi AIoT Router AX3600 Review: Large Package Design
When I saw the package of the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 for the first time, I was really surprised by the size of the package. Compared with ordinary WiFi routers, the packaging of Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 is obviously much larger. At first I thought it was just a big package, but in fact, the size of the Xiaomi AIoT WiFi 6 router is actually larger than the average WiFi 5 router.
The reason for the larger size is also related to the design of the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600.
The Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 adopts 7 external antennas, including 1xIoT equipment antenna, 2x2.4GHz antennas and 4x5GHz antennas. This design also ensures that the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 has stronger signal coverage capability.
In addition, the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 is also equipped with six high-performance signal amplifiers: two external high-performance signal amplifiers (PA power amplifier + LNA low noise amplifier) in the 2.4GHz band and four external high-performance signal amplifiers in the 5GHz band.
The power amplifier can effectively enhance the transmission power of the signal, so that the signal transmitted by the router can be transmitted farther. The low noise amplifier can improve the sensitivity of signal reception, so that the router can receive weaker signals.
In this way, Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 can not only provide stable and high-speed network connection for mobile phones, but also receive signals from more smart devices.
There are two lights on the body of the XiaomiAIoT router AX3600, which represent the network connection and the operation of the system, through which you can know the working status of the router.
At the same time, there is also an indicator light on the middle antenna.
More importantly, the large size is also helpful for the overall heat dissipation of the router. A large area of heat dissipation area is reserved on the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600, so as to ensure the stable and efficient continuous operation of the route.
A network cable interface is set on the back of the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600. The route provides one gigabit adaptive Wang port and three gigabit adaptive LAN ports, all with LED indicators to indicate the connection status.
On the side is the power interface and the restart button, which hides the buttons and interface on the back of the body, which also makes the overall Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 look more concise.
In terms of configuration, Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 is equipped with Qualcomm IPQ8071A chip, 4-core A53 architecture, 1GHz clock frequency, and dual-core NPU network acceleration engine chip.
512MB has a large memory and supports up to 248devices to connect at the same time, which can be easily handled by family gatherings or gang up by multiple people.
Xiaomi AIoT Router AX3600 Review: Multiple Device Connections are More Stable
In addition to the use of high-end hardware configuration, Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 has also been upgraded at the technical level, Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 supports OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology. Ensure that the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 runs efficiently and stably.
OFDMA technology allows multiple terminal devices to send data with only one transmission, while significantly reducing the delay so that the transmission efficiency of multiple devices working at the same time is significantly improved.
MU-MIMO allows multiple antennas on a router to serve multiple devices at the same time to avoid slowing down the experience of other devices because of one low-speed device.
Xiaomi AIoT router also supports BSS Coloring technology, which can effectively reduce the signal interference between multiple routers and improve the communication efficiency through monitoring and color marking algorithm.
At the same time, Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 is also equipped with Beamforming technology, which can detect the location of mobile phones, computers and other terminals in the network coverage, enhance the location signal, and enhance the communication quality within the effective coverage area of Wi-Fi.
What’s more, the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 has an independent AIoT smart antenna, and you can automatically discover the uninitialized Xiaomi smart devices around you by opening Mijia App, and you can network the new devices with one click, eliminating the process of manually adding search devices and manually entering passwords.
Xiaomi AIoT Router AX3600 Review: Network Speed Test
At the technical level, everyone's perception may not be very strong, so let's take a look at the network speed of Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 through the actual measurement.
First of all, let's take a look, if you have a Wi-Fi6 phone, then Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 will improve your network speed?

After connecting to the Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600, it will also be displayed as the sixth-generation technical standard on the phone.
In addition, we also tested the coverage of the XiaomiAIoT router AX3600, the test environment area of about 75 square meters, we chose to test the network speed in three rooms.
The download speed is 86.7Mbps and the upload speed is 90.8Mbps at A, 88.7Mbps and 89.3Mbps at B, 89.4Mbps and 88Mbps at C, and 86.7Mbps and 90.8Mbps at A, 88.7Mbps and 89.3Mbps at B, 89.4Mbps and 80.8Mbps at C, respectively. From the data point of view, the network coverage of Xiaomi AIoT router AX3600 is relatively wide, and the network speed is relatively stable. For ordinary home users, there is no problem at all.
Xiaomi AIoT Router AX3600 Review: Mobile Phone Operation is More Convenient
