Honor keeps diversifying its portfolio and the latest addition is a Wi-Fi 6 Plus router with four antennas and a dual-core CPU. Starting today, it can be purchased in several countries in Europe, and the brand is throwing some gifts as well.
The Honor Router 3 has one WAN port and three LAN ports that support auto speed adaptation between 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps, totaling to 3000 Mbps, provided you have such a connection coming out the wall in the first place. There is a single H button on top that can easily pair up to five more Router 3 devices into an active Mesh Network for enterprise solutions.
Honor, and its parent company Huawei, call their router Wi-Fi 6 Plus, because it has a 6 dB stronger signal than the regular Wi-Fi 6 (previously, 802.11ax) and can penetrate one more wall. Compared with Wi-Fi 5 (formerly known as 802.11 ac), this router can bring up to three times faster network speeds, four times more capacity, lower latency and 30% less power consumption, reads the press release, sent by Honor.
Honor brings technology that allows one Router 3 to communicate with up to 20 devices – 4 on the 2.4GHz spectrum and up to 16 on the 5GHz. Security-wise, it has WPA3 with individualized data encryption. On the inside, there is a Gigahome Wi-Fi 6 chip, and the two CPU cores can go up to 1.2 GHz, achieving network speeds to over 1 Gbps.
