The AirPort Extreme Base Station offers Wi-Fi speeds up to 3x faster than the previous generation. It features next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a powerful beamforming antenna array for higher performance and range, simultaneous dual-band support, and a new vertical design with a smaller footprint. And the AirPort Extreme is easy to set up and highly secure, letting you share your broadband Internet connection, a USB printer, or a hard drive.
The New Definition of Fast
With three-stream 802.11ac technology, the AirPort Extreme Base Station can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps (based on theoretical peak speeds) -- up to three times faster than 802.11n Wi?Fi. You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80 MHz-wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever. And if you have 802.11a/b/g/n devices, AirPort Extreme maximizes that connection as well. It features simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac Wi?Fi, which transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time. That means your devices automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.
Beamforming Puts the Focus on Your Device
The new AirPort Extreme Base Station features the intelligent, powerful beamforming antenna array. Most base station antennas emit an equal and constant Wi?Fi signal in all directions. But the beamforming antenna array is smarter -- it 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.
Connect to Wi?Fi from Any Device
Mac. PC. iPhone. iPad. Apple TV. Really, any Wi?Fi-enabled device you have will work with AirPort Extreme. That's because it's compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac specifications.
