- Three-stream 802.11ac technology
With three-stream 802.11ac technology, the AirPort Extreme Base Station takes Wi-Fi speeds over the top. You can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps - triple the previous 802.11n standard. Which means up to three times faster Wi-Fi. 2 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 802.11 a/b/g/n devices, AirPort Extreme maximizes that connection as well. What you do with all that extra speed is up to you.
- Simultaneous dual-band support
AirPort Extreme features simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. That means it transmits at both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies at the same time. So no matter which band your wireless devices use, they will automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.
- Beamforming puts the focus on your device
With 802.11ac technology comes 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.
- Smaller footprint
The vertical design not only improves Wi-Fi performance, it also saves you valuable desk space. At less than 4 inches square, the footprint of AirPort Extreme is 64 percent smaller than its predecessor. And to keep everything tidy, even the power supply is built in. Which means AirPort Extreme takes up no more space than it should.
- Easy setup
With AirPort Extreme, getting your Wi-Fi network up and running takes less time - and less effort - than making a cup of coffee. That is because a setup assistant is built into iOS and into AirPort Utility for OS X. As soon as you plug in your AirPort Extreme and connect it to your DSL or cable modem, you can follow the simple instructions on your Mac or iOS device. There are no complicated steps to follow and no obscure terminology to learn. The setup assistant does all the work, so you don't have to.
- Manage your Wi-Fi network from your iOS device or Mac
Once your network is set up, AirPort Utility for iOS and OS X lets you manage and monitor it from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac. Your AirPort Extreme - along with other AirPort base stations you have connected - appears graphically onscreen, so you can see your settings at a glance, make changes, apply updates, and more.
- Simple and secure file sharing
AirPort Extreme can turn your external USB hard drive into a secure drive you can share across your Wi-Fi network and access securely over the Internet. All the documents, videos, photos, and other files instantly become available to anyone on the network, Mac and PC users alike. It is perfect for file sharing, collaborative projects, and more.
- Print without wires
The USB 2 port in AirPort Extreme is also great for sharing a printer across your wireless network. Just plug it in and everyone on your network can take advantage of one centrally available printer. Wirelessly, of course.
- Get online safely and securely
AirPort Extreme includes a built-in firewall that creates a barrier between your network and the Internet, protecting your data from malicious attacks. When you set up AirPort Extreme, the firewall is automatically turned on, so you don't have to do a thing. Except enjoy the web with peace of mind.
- Put out the Wi-Fi welcome mat for guests
With the guest networking feature, you can set up a separate Wi-Fi network just for guests. Use a different password or no password at all. A guest network allows access only to the Internet, so your primary network - including any external hard drive, printer, or other LAN-attached device - remains secure.
- Connect to Wi-Fi from any device
Really, any Wi-Fi-enabled device you have will work with AirPort Extreme. That is because it is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac specifications.
- Go the wired route if you want
AirPort Extreme includes three Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports for fast wired connectivity with a desktop computer, network drive, DVR, or other device.
