The German company has confirmed that it will attend this year’s MWC which, as usual, will take place in Barcelona from February 28 to March 3, and will take the opportunity to present FRITZ!OS 7.50 >, the next big update that will receive its well-known Linux-based operating system that, as many of our readers will know, drives its ecosystem of routers, repeaters, PLCs and other connectivity and home automation solutions.
The MWC 2022 is going to be an important turning point because, in the end, it is a first step that will take us back to that normality that we long for so much. The fact that it will be face-to-face again key in this regard, and I think that after all the time we have been dragging the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is something worth mentioning.
Going back to the AVM news, the German company has confirmed, as we anticipated, that FRITZ!OS 7.50 will be one of the big stars, but it won’t be the only one. AVM will also present new WLAN solutions and products compatible with Wi-Fi 6+ and Mesh. I can give you some names:
- FRITZ!Box 6690 Cable, designed for cable connections.
- FRITZ!Box 4060 tri-band WLAN router.
- FRITZ!Box 6850 5G, to be always connected.
- FRITZ!Repeater 1200 AX, a state-of-the-art repeater.
- FRITZ!Repeater 6000, a high-performance tri-band repeater.
We will also see new fiber optic products, but we don’t have specific details to offer you at the moment, unfortunately.
FRITZ!OS 7.50 will come loaded with new features
Although this update has not yet reached the general channel, it has been available for some time in the AVM lab, a modality that allows more advanced users (yes, those enthusiasts who like to mess around) try out the latest when it’s pre-launch.
Thanks to this, I can tell you some of the most important new features that FRITZ!OS 7.50 will bring:
- FRITZ!Fon can now say by voice who is calling.
- WireGuard support.
- Performance improvements with Wi-Fi Mesh.
- FRITZ!NAS supports exFAT.
- Improvements in performance, security, stability and home automation.
Once the presentation event that AVM plans for this year’s MWC is held, we will tell you all the most important news and, of course, also all the keys of FRITZ!OS 7.50 and the devices for which this new update will be available. It goes without saying that, like the other versions of FRITZ!OS,it will be totally free. To enjoy it we will only have to install it through the interface of our router, unless we have automatic updates activated, in which case it will be downloaded and installed without us having to do anything.
