The ATHENA is the ultimate router for the multi-device household. Built with a 1.4GHz Qualcomm® Dual Core Processor, 16 high power amplifiers, and 4 high gain antennas, the ATHENA delivers unmatched Wi-Fi performance. It is equipped to provide unprecedented coverage, speed, and reliability for the most demanding networks with many connected devices. Extremely fast AC2600 Wi-Fi technology provides up to 2.53Gbps, making lag and buffering a thing of the past for everyone.3 The ATHENA also features cutting edge MU-MIMO technology that enables multiple devices to receive data at once, granting uninterrupted streaming for all.2

 

Eliminate Wi-Fi Dead Spots
 
Stream More with MU-MIMO
 
Family
 
 

How does MU-MIMO Technology work? Say you have a traditional network with 3 devices and they are all downloading data at the same time. Device 2 will have to wait for Device 1 to finish receiving data from the router before it can receive its own data, then Device 3 must wait until Device 2 gets data before it will receive its data. The ATHENA with MU-MIMO, on the other hand, will allow all 3 devices to receive data at once. This means increased Wi-Fi speeds and overall better performance for all connecting devices.2

Specifications are subject to change without notice.

1 Range specifications are based on performance test results. Actual performance may vary due to differences in operating environments, building materials and wireless obstructions. Performance may increase or decrease over the stated specification. Wireless coverage claims are used only as a reference and are not guaranteed as each wireless network is uniquely different. Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE 802.11 standard specifications. Actual data throughput may vary as a result of network conditions and environmental factors. Output power specifications are based on the maximum possible radio output power plus antenna gain. May not work with non-standard Wi-Fi devices such as those with proprietary software or drivers. Supports all Wi-Fi standards that are compatible or backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi standards.

For MU-MIMO to work, additional MU-MIMO capable devices must be connected to the network. To achieve the "up to 3X" data rate increase, three or more 1x1 MU-MIMO devices are needed with optimal network environment conditions.

3 All transmission rates listed, for example 800Mbps for 2.4GHz and 1733Mbps for 5GHz, are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on external factors as well as the combination of devices connected to the router. AC2600 wireless speeds are achieved when connecting to other AC2600 capable devices.
