Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is a new generation of Wi-Fi standard, which has a great improvement in transmission rate, signal coverage and data delay compared with the previous generation of Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac).

The Wi-Fi 6 router can be used faster with mobile terminals that support Wi-Fi 6, such as iPhone11, Redmi K30 Pro, and so on. Compared with the current household mainstream Wi-Fi5 AC1200 router, the Redmi router AX5 wireless rate can be increased by up to 52%.

Redmi router AX5 also has an independent network acceleration engine (single-core 1.5GHz NPU), is designed to handle network data traffic. While throughput is increased by 21%, CPU footprint is reduced by 95%, which significantly improves data forwarding efficiency and reduces delay waiting. While watching 4K high-definition network video, you can also play games with friends and bid farewell to multi-application concurrency when the game stutters and drops frames.


In order to ensure wider and more stable signal coverage, the Redmi router AX5 uses four Qorvo high-performance independent signal amplifiers. Compared with the integrated amplifier, the signal strength of the independent amplifier is increased by 4dB, and the theoretical coverage is increased by 50%.

OFDMA technology allows routers to send data to up to 8 devices in a single transmission, and the network delay can be reduced by 66%.
