Eero Unveils Next-Generation of Products for Enhanced Home Connectivity

Today, Amazon announced it is expanding its eero lineup in Australia with eero Max 7, its first mesh Wi-Fi 7 router providing customers with the best eero performance ever, and eero Pro 6E, its mesh Wi-Fi 6E router for customers with gigabit or faster internet plans.

“We know Australians love to stream sport, movies and TV, game, work from home, connect with loved ones overseas and use an ever-increasing number of connected devices,” said Nick Weaver, CEO and co-founder of eero. “Connectivity is crucial to their everyday lives. Alongside being easy-to-use, fast, and secure, reliability is core to our mission, and this has been front and centre with the introduction of eero Max 7 and eero Pro 6E.”

An entirely new class of eero – eero Max 7

eero Max 7 is an all-new class of eero, setting the highest bar for performance and representing the best of eero. eero Max 7 combines the company’s patented TrueMesh networking technology with the latest Wi-Fi 7 standard to dramatically increase speeds, avoid interference from neighbouring networks, and improve mesh latency. With 10 Gigabit Ethernet, it’s now also possible to download a 4K movie in 10 seconds or a 50-gigabyte video game in less than a minute.

As eero’s fastest tri-band mesh Wi-Fi system, eero Max 7 supports the 2.4, 5, and 6 GHz radio bands, and delivers wireless speeds up to 4.3 Gbps and wired speeds up to 9.4 Gbps. With two 10 and two 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet ports, it can support multiple wired devices and enable customers to take advantage of internet plans up to 10 Gbps. Delivering incredible wireless throughput, just one eero Max 7 unit can provide 230 square metres of coverage.

This capacity makes eero Max 7 a foundational component of a smart home or small business’s infrastructure, capable of supporting over 200 connected devices and featuring Matter support, the ability to act as a Thread Border Router, and a built-in Zigbee smart home hub (as controllers only).

Introducing eero’s Wi-Fi 6E-enabled device – eero Pro 6E
eero Pro 6E represents premium performance and is for customers with internet plans up to 2.5 Gbps, with more than 100 connected devices, and looking for a great connectivity experience. eero Pro 6E is a Wi-Fi 6E-enabled eero mesh Wi-Fi system, with support for over 100 devices simultaneously. eero Pro 6E can support network speeds up to 2.3 Gbps (a gigabit wired and 1.3 Gbps wireless), gigabit+ Wi-Fi speeds across your home, and leverages the 6 GHz band to provide access to a new, spacious Wi-Fi “traffic lane” to enable faster speeds and less congestion across your home network.

With one 2.5 and one 1.0 Gigabit Ethernet port on each device, eero Pro 6E can support multigigabit internet plans and with the additional Wi-Fi bandwidth of 160 MHz radio channels, can support seamless connectivity for activities like AR, VR, and 8K streaming. A single eero Pro 6E can cover up to 190 square metres, while a 3-pack covers up to 560 square metres.

Additional Features and Benefits

eero Max 7 and eero Pro 6E will work with all major internet service provider plans and, like all eeros, have several features to deliver a great connectivity experience:

  • Easy to Set Up and Manage: Use the eero app to set up eero Max 7 and eero Pro 6E in minutes, manage the network, pause the internet, share network details with friends or guests, and much more.

  • TrueMesh: All eero mesh Wi-Fi systems use the company’s patented TrueMesh networking technology to dynamically route data through the fastest path in the network, limiting interference and helping ensure customers have a fast, reliable internet experience. TrueMesh does this by automatically choosing the fastest path for network traffic based on a variety of factors like a network’s layout, interference from neighbouring networks, and connected devices.
  • Safe and Secure Wi-Fi: eero is constantly working to help keep networks safe and secure. Automatic software updates provide the latest security patches, bug fixes, and feature upgrades.
