Product details

High-end home network with 4 x 4 Wi-Fi 6 (WLAN AX)
The AVM FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable Edition International with innovative Wi-Fi 6 (Wi-Fi AX) brings ultra-fast Wi-Fi to the cable connection. The Wi-Fi 6 (Wi-Fi
AX) standard is faster and significantly more efficient: the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable masters multiple parallel applications such as 4K streams, video conferences and cloud applications effortlessly. The integrated DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem for ultra-fast gigabit speeds is suitable for all cable connections. A 2.5 gigabit LAN connection, USB 3.0 and the DECT base for cordless telephony and smart home applications round off the versatile communications offering.

Innovative Wi-Fi 6 for a high-end WLAN with many end devices
In addition to smartphones, notebooks, TVs and games consoles, more and more household and smart home devices are designed for wireless connections - ideal for Wi-Fi 6. By reducing latency times and the OFDMA modulation method with QAM-1024, Wi-Fi 6 (Wi-Fi AX) ensures greater efficiency, higher speeds and better Wi-Fi coverage in the home. Overall, the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable with 4,800 Mbit/s (5 GHz) + 1,200 Mbit/s (2.4 GHz) provides large performance reserves for the most demanding Wi-Fi applications.

Powerful WLAN mesh centre
As a WLAN Mesh centre, the FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable ensures the best WLAN quality in the entire home network. In the Wi-Fi Mesh, distributed Wi-Fi nodes (e.g. FRITZ!Box and several FRITZ!Repeaters) are combined into a single intelligent Wi-Fi network. The FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable forms the centre (Mesh Master) and actively controls all other access points so that Wi-Fi end devices used in the home network are always logged on to the access point with the best connection. Mobile Wi-Fi devices can conveniently switch between access points automatically without interrupting a running application.

Versatile smart home and convenient telephony
The integrated DECT base is used to control smart home devices such as the FRITZ!DECT 301 radiator controller, the FRITZ!DECT 200/210 switchable sockets, the FRITZ!DECT 440 push-button and the FRITZ!DECT 500 LED lamp. Two analogue telephones and up to six DECT cordless telephones (e.g. FRITZ!Fon) can be registered on the integrated telephone system. Smartphones with the FRITZ!App Fon also become fully-fledged VoIP telephones via WLAN. Several integrated answering machines, local and online phone books and numerous convenience functions round off the wide range of features.

Versatile multimedia functions
An integrated TV tuner streams the TV signal throughout the home network to a PC, smartphone or tablet. The FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable also brings connected USB storage devices and online storage and the content stored on them into the home network. Thanks to the integrated media server with NAS connection, stored films, music and pictures are made available and can be distributed to playback devices via smartphone, for example. The FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable thus forms a powerful platform for networked multimedia applications such as IPTV, video on demand or 4K streaming.
