Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station features 802.11ac technology to take Wi-Fi speeds over the top. It can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps - triple the previous 802.11n standard. It gives double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever. AirPort Extreme is compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n devices also. Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. It comes with a smart and intelligent beamforming antenna which knows where an 802.11ac device is on the network. Then AirPort Extreme targets its signal to that device. So your Wi-Fi signal is stronger, clearer, and faster.
It may sound complex but AirPort Extreme Base Station is super easy to setup and configure and use. With the guest networking feature, you can set up a separate Wi-Fi network just for guests. AirPort Extreme includes a built-in firewall that creates a barrier between your network and the Internet, protecting your data from malicious attacks. There are three Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports for fast wired connectivity with a desktop computer, network drive, DVR, or other device.
In a nutshell, AirPort Extreme is another great product from Apple. Now you can build your wireless network for more speed and performance. Get more from your wireless!
