The extraordinary growth in the number of wireless devices found in modern homes has seen a huge increase in demand for wireless speed, range and bandwidth. This continuing trend away from wired connections to wireless communication and the ever-increasing throughput demands of new Wi-Fi devices and applications—including Internet TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones—drives the requirements in today’s homes for high-performance, reliable Wi-Fi to unprecedented levels. To meet the connectivity needs of homes and businesses alike, Edimax has launched the BR-6478AC dual-band 802.11ac router: featuring the latest 11ac draft standard for extraordinary improvements in the speed, reliability and quality of wireless communications.

Edimax’s Revolutionary iQoS
iQoS is Edimax’s solution for a quicker, easier, and more effective way to manage Internet bandwidth. While Quality of Service (QoS) functionality is a common feature in routers across the market, typically only advanced users have the knowledge required to set up the complex parameters. Edimax though has redesigned QoS with user-friendliness and accessibility in mind. A simple and intuitive user interface allows users to arrange bandwidth priority settings in just a few clicks. With iQoS, you can enjoy gaming, video streaming, VoIP applications and BT clients at the same time without the usual nightmare of lag and interruptions. An original, efficient and effective means of managing your Internet bandwidth.
Supports a guest network to provide connectivity while isolating guests from your primary network.

And with the built-in WLAN on/off switch users can also easily switch on/off the wireless connection without logging into the user interface – an easy way to save electricity when it is not in use.
