AVM FritzBox 7590: Price, Specs, News - with Super DSL solution!

In Highlight for consumers at CeBIT 2017 comes from AVM: The FritzBox 7590 is the new top model of the Berlin WLAN specialist. There have been some changes to previous models, though not everything has changed. COMPUTER BILD informed.

FritzBox 7590: Differences to the 7580
It was for a long time unclear why AVM publicly emphasized that the FritzBox 7580 launched in the trade at the end of 2016 was neither the successor of the legendary FritzBox 7490 nor the new top model. Finally, the 7580 offered on the one hand all the functions, which one knew already from the 7490 - on the other hand, however, also modern WLAN technology as well as a fundamentally fresh design. The secret came when AVM announced the FritzBox 7580 at last year's CeBIT: Until the targeted market launch, the new chips with the long-awaited WLAN standard " ac Wave 2 " and multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) But still no modem chips for the upcoming DSL technology "Supervectoring". Therefore, The new WLAN technology with the 7580 to market - and the fresh DSL technology with the real flagship to follow. In the 80s and 90s series, AVM basically pursues different objectives. For example, the case of the 7580 is significantly larger than the 7590. The advantage: chips with the latest technology (in this case WLAN ac Wave 2) can be easily integrated in addition to the main board; Accordingly the WLAN chips with the Fritz box 7580 are not integrated into the main board, but applied later. With the 7590, on the other hand, WLAN technology is integrated directly on the main board. As a result, innovative technologies will in future also be seen first in the 80s series, since AVM does not need to wait until the presence of highly integrated main boards.

Fit for the DSL of the future: keyword Supervectoring
The FritzBox 7590, which presented AVM now at the CeBIT is thus the true successor of the legendary Fritz box 7490. In the trade come the model already two months later - clearly faster and cheaper than usual. The 7590 brings two major innovations. On the one hand the design: AVM returns to the horizontal housing, which however in white and with curved lines much more skilfully than at the 7490. On the other hand - more importantly - the technology: The FritzBox 7590 is the first router for private users ("Consumer Router ") In Germany, which is already prepared for the upcoming Super-DSL. Thanks to the "Supervectoring 35b" technology, you will be able to reach speeds almost at the level of the cable and fiber competition, even with conventional telephone sockets via the copper cable in the street, Ideally up to 300 megabits per second (MBit / s)! The catch: The tempo is linked to conditions. Firstly, the DSL providers have to bring the technology in the gray boxes along the street (DSLAM and / or in German: DSL access multiplexer) to Vordermann and ensure that these are well-connected by glass fiber. Secondly, the high pace can only be reached by a few hundred meters - after which it drops rapidly. Exact timetables for the Supervectoring has not yet betrayed any of the major German DSL providers. The Telekom will probably offer it only at the end of 2017 or even 2018 in a larger style. Nevertheless, the new technology for DSL vendors was probably reason enough to delay the switch to the next FritzBox generation about the FritzBox 7580 by half a year.

WLAN steam with eight antennas
With the core function of each Fritz box, thus the WLAN connection, sets the 7590 on the same technology, which already convinced in the test of the 7580: Eight antennas - four each for 2.4 and 5 GHz (GHz) - are due to the "4x4 MIMO "Technology can reach high speeds, even if the FritzBox for the corner or by stairs houses funkt. AVM speaks of speeds of up to 1,733 MBit / s on the 5 GHz frequency band (via WLAN ac) and 800 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band (WLAN n). However, even in the ideal case, data rates of a few hundred MBit / s are expected in practice. Also integrated is the MU-MIMO technology, as in the case of the 7580. This allows newer devices - such as the Galaxy-S- or A-Class - with simultaneous use better to supply, since each Fritz box antenna the data targeted at the Respective terminal. Good thing: Thanks to the "Band Steering" procedure, the FritzBox takes care of assigning the currently best frequency to each device. This makes it no longer necessary to manually switch from 2.4 to 5 GHz WLAN, for example, if interference from neighboring WLANs occurs. Band Steering can also be retrofitted with the Fritz box 7490, over the operating system FritzOS 6.80.

Old Virtues: ISDN, DECT & Co.
The view on the connections shows that one has developed the box in and for Germany. The freshly baked Fritz box generation also works on the (though gradually dying) analog and ISDN connections. And thanks to the "S0 socket", which has always been installed in the top models, one also uses its old ISDN devices at new IP connections. In addition DECT is integrated, whereby one DECT cordless telephones without base itself directly at the Fritz box announces. (Comfortably goes with AVM FritzFon models or better Gigaset handset.) There are also two analogue connections, for example for the external fax machine.

USB should speed up
As with its predecessors, four Gigabit LAN ports are built-in for network cables, and a socket for external modems such as the cable or fiber-optic port (WAN). The two USB 3.0 ports are supposed to offer two to four times faster data throughput than the previous model - plus allow the connection of LTE sticks or USB printers. The brightness of the LEDs in the housing can also be automatically dimmed for the first time, depending on the ambient light; But it does not work. The power requirement should remain at the usual level. Nice detail: The Wandhalterung has the same dimensions as with the Fritz box 7490.

Rating: FritzBox 7590
If you now buy a DSL router, the 7590 should consider. Hardly any other router is so future-proof, especially for DSL. If you own the predecessor 7490, but waits: The new VDSL supervisionctoring connections are not yet, only the WLAN is compared to the 7490 better. Owners of the 7580 feel no difference until the introduction of the VDSL Supervectoring at their own house connection, as long as the technology is not yet available. And this may take until 2018 - depending on the location and connection even longer.
