BERLIN, February 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
AVM FRITZ!Box LTE
- Successful FRITZ!Box concept, now for LTE users
- AVM adds two new models to LTE product range
- Voice over LTE replaces fixed line connection
Following the hugely successful first FRITZ!Box LTE, AVM is expanding its LTE product range and unveiling two new FRITZ!Box models for LTE combined connections in parallel to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The FRITZ!Box 6842 LTE and FRITZ!Box 6810 LTE both boast an elegant new design that's been specially developed for LTE applications. The FRITZ!Box models for LTE also bring together all the key features for communication in a single device: WLAN N, Ethernet connection, network storage feature, NAS, telephone system and DECT base station. AVM is therefore also applying its successful FRITZ!Box concept to LTE, as this is the only way that the latter's potential can be fully exploited in home networking. AVM's LTE FRITZ!Box also allows users to forego a fixed line connection altogether and instead do their talking via LTE.
Benefits of the FRITZ!Box as an integrated access device now for LTE users
WLAN N, Ethernet connection, network storage feature, NAS, media server, telephone system and DECT base station - AVM's FRITZ!Box combines all the key features for communication and home networking in a single device. As a market leader for broadband devices, AVM is also focusing on the successful FRITZ!Box concept when it comes to LTE. In this way, all features are at the ready around the clock in LTE-based home networking. LTE data transfer rates are comparable to those of cable and DSL connections, meaning that downstream transfer rates of up to 100 Mbit/s and upstream ones of up to 50 Mbit/s are possible. All FRITZ!Box LTE models already support voice over LTE - so fixed line connections can be completely replaced.
New LTE products from AVM: FRITZ!Box 6842 LTE and 6810 LTE
The new FRITZ!Box 6842 LTE is a high-performance home-networking and Internet device featuring WLAN N, four-port gigabit Ethernet, USB port, telephone system and DECT base station that works using the LTE mobile phone standard. What's more, it boasts an analog port for phones and fax machines. The small FRITZ!Box 6810 LTE with DECT, WLAN N and an Ethernet connection is just the ticket for anyone getting to grips with the technology. All FRITZ!Box LTE models also feature an integrated DECT base station for up to six cordless phones.
AVM boasts extensive experience of LTE
The tried-and-tested FRITZ!Box 6840 LTE continues to feature in AVM's LTE range and has been a hit with LTE providers and users alike since its market launch in the fall of 2011. The first FRITZ!Box LTE also basked in positive attention from the specialist press - and picked up several awards. The Initiative Mittelstand (German initiative for medium-sized businesses) awarded the FRITZ!Box 6840 LTE its IT innovation prize, for example, and the German specialized journal connect said: "One thing's for sure: AVM is also a whiz at LTE - and offers a high degree of functionality. That might pique network operators' curiosity."
