Better performance for Mesh Wi-Fi

Along with Smart Repeating, FRITZ!OS 7.50 enhances the performance of the Mesh Wi-Fi in the home network FRITZ!. Users who use a FRITZ!Repeater or a FRITZ!Box as a Mesh Repeater benefit from higher data transmission speeds and more stable Wi-Fi connections. With the new FRITZ!OS version, both frequency bands (2.4 and 5 GHz) are used even more dynamically for an optimal connection between the FRITZ!Box and the Mesh Repeater.

There is also support for the WireGuard VPN protocol, which makes establishing secure internet connections to the FRITZ!Box home network even easier. For example, when you work from home or want to access your home network while travelling. With the new WireGuard Assistant integrated in the FRITZ!Box, you can set up encrypted connections on your smartphone, notebook or PC in no time, using the WireGuard app via QR code or software. The previous VPN protocol for the FRITZ!Box, IPSec, has also been updated to support both IPv4 and IPv6 connections.

Handling calls easily: FRITZ!Fon learns to speak

The FRITZ!Fon receives a new appointment calendar and learns to speak. With the new “Voice” ringtone, the FRITZ!Fon can now inform you about calls from stored contacts or calendar entries with announcements such as “Call from Claudia” or “Exit now to go to the station”. Even the management of unwanted calls becomes easier: the phonebook can use an “allow list”, so unwanted calls from contacts not included in the phonebook can be blocked or diverted to voicemail. The use of online telephone directories has also been improved.

FRITZ!OS 7.50 makes the FRITZ! Smart Home even more versatile. Thanks to the “scenario” function, it is now possible to call up a number of different actions in the Smart Home at the same time. For example, with the “Go home” scenario, the LED lights, smart plugs, Wi-Fi and/or Wi-Fi for guests and the answering machine can be switched on at the same time. The new routine features ensure that devices, scenarios and models are started automatically with an if-then connection.
