Comcast Launches IxFi Advanced Gateway

 

  • Comcast

PHILADELPHIA — Comcast announced that its next-generation xFi Advanced Gateway — its first device capable of delivering true multi-gigabit speeds — will begin rolling out to customers in the coming months. Comcast, the nation’s largest gigabit speed provider, now becomes one of the first U.S. Internet Service Providers to offer a WiFi 6 Certified gateway delivering faster speeds, ultimate capacity, lower latency and best-in-class Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home.

Xfinity Internet power users are connecting on average 50 devices in the home per month and, globally, an additional 100 million smart home devices are expected to be added to home networks by 2023. The xFi Advanced Gateway is designed for high-performance users to handle more capacity for even more smart home devices coming online today and in the future. This gateway delivers exceptionally lower latency for an unrivaled cloud and online gaming, 4K video streaming, and VR and AR experiences, as these applications increasingly become mainstream.

The gateway also provides unprecedented Wi-Fi signal range, blanketing the vast majority of most homes with ultra-fast speeds. Combined with xFi pods, customers can create their own personalized mesh Wi-Fi networks throughout their home.

The xFi Advanced Gateway comes with xFi — a simple, digital dashboard for Xfinity customers to control their home Wi-Fi network. In addition to parental control features like pausing Wi-Fi and screen time scheduling, xFi provides content filters that ensure younger children can only access age-appropriate content. xFi now also comes with xFi Advanced Security, that protects all the devices connected to a customers’ home network from malware and other security threats. xFi can be accessed via the mobile app (iOS and Android), website, or on the TV, on X1 and Flex, with the Xfinity Voice Remote. The feature is available at no extra cost to the more than 18 million Xfinity Internet customers who lease a compatible xFi gateway.
