the flagship SURFboard mAX Pro Mesh Wi-Fi 6 System (AX11000) and SURFboard mAX Plus Mesh Wi-Fi 6 system (AX7800), offering consumers a range of options for
achieving whole-home coverage with the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology.

The SURFboard mAX system features an
advanced tri-band Wi-Fi 6
mesh design with two routers, each delivering 6.6 Gbps speeds and providing a
total coverage area of up to 5,500 sq. ft. Its third band, with 4x4 Wi-Fi 6, provides

“SURFboard mAX represents the whole-home coverage and gigabit
speeds that consumers expect from our flagship Wi-Fi portfolio in a new
performance tier designed to meet the needs of an even greater range of

mAX AX6600’s advanced software makes it simple and convenient to manage the
system’s powerful technology. Using Alexa,
consumers can manage their SURFboard mAX system’s guest Wi-Fi, pause and
unpause Wi-Fi access, and schedule specific Wi-Fi access times. With Alexa’s
Wi-Fi Access feature, consumers can simply say: “Alexa, pause the Wi-Fi
for 30 minutes” or “Alexa, turn off the Wi-Fi for Sarah” from compatible
Alexa-enabled devices for easy voice control.
