In a market as crowded as routers, it’s important to know how to stand out from the competition. In that sense, the German company AVM has known how to play its cards, equipping the FRITZ!Box 7490 with features and extras that make it more interesting.
One of the first features we should highlight is its support of standard Wi-Fi 802.11ac, which guarantees a high level of performance, even though it can work automatically with devices that don’t support this standard.
In addition, we shouldn’t forget its capacity to work simultaneously in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, which allows for great performance even on multiple connected devices, reaching speeds of 450 Mbps and 1300 Mbps on each band.
Another of the areas where the FRITZ!Box 7490 shines when compared to other routers is its ample support of telephone functions, which allows the connection of up to six phones and offers, in addition, a great number of possibilities, like the option to silence calls at certain hours and the blocking of telemarketing calls.
Another key feature is in the software, where free applications offered by AVM, such as FRITZ!NAS, lets you create your own private cloud with ease, setting itself even further apart from the competition.
