QNAP Launches High-speed Dual Band Wi-Fi 6 PCIe card for NAS and PC

Stepping into the Wi-Fi 6 era, QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, today released the QXP-W6-AX200 dual band Wi-Fi 6 PCIe network card for NAS and PC. The QXP-W6-AX200 supports the IEEE 802.11ax standard (backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac), MIMO 2Tx2R, MU-MIMO TX/RX, and can be installed in a QNAP NAS, or Windows /Linux PC to provide fast Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. When installed in a Windows PC, the QXP-W6-AX200 also provides Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.

The QXP-W6-AX200 is a PCIe Gen 2×1 Wi-Fi 6 adapter with an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 module, providing speeds of up to 2400 Mbps – significantly faster than Wi-Fi 5. The new antenna design supports dual band 802.11ax 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, and the multiple angle tilt and magnetic base provides the best signal strength direction and location.

“QNAP is devoted to providing affordable high-speed networking solutions for both Ethernet and Wi-Fi environments” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “the QXP-W6-AX200 provides breakthrough Wi-Fi 6 connectivity to enable high-speed backup, file sharing, and other demanding tasks in modern IT environments”.
