Active steering of wireless connections means users get an even more stable WiFi for their devices such as smartphones and notebooks (Mesh WiFi steering / access point steering). For users who have another FRITZ!Box in the home network in addition to the FRITZ!Box connected to the internet, the update will provide even more Mesh functions for seamless communication when it comes to Smart Home and telephony. In addition, FRITZ! products such as the FRITZ!Fon or the the FRITZ!DECT 400 Smart Home button get new performance features.
The FRITZ!Fon can be used to block phone numbers, for example, and the wireless button now supports Smart Home templates. FRITZ!OS 7.10 makes the home network even more transparent. Users can now use the email address associated with their MyFRITZ! account to easily receive information about events in their home network. The VPN functions of the FRITZ!Box have been enhanced and when it comes to VDSL, the router displays more information about the connection.
A range of other new internet and system features are waiting to be discovered by users - for example the option to disable/enable the LED lights on the FRITZ!Box. FRITZ!OS 7.10 brings FRITZ! products to an up-to-date, safe level and is available free of charge for all users. The update for the FRITZ!Box and FRITZ!Repeater models can be started easily with one click in the Mesh Overview of the FRITZ!Box user interface — users can also turn on automatic updates, if desired. The new FRITZ!OS will gradually be made available for other FRITZ! products in Germany and in other AVM markets.
