The Intel® AX411 and AX1690 CRF1 (Companion RF) modules are the first products to support Intel® Double Connect Technology, enabling two simultaneous Wi-Fi connections. They are designed to support Wi-Fi 6 (and Wi-Fi 6E) technology in the 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz bands. They support improved TCP throughput and Wi-Fi 6 R2 features, including UL MU-MIMO2, which improves UL network capacity in dense environments, as well as support for Bluetooth® 5.3. These new features maximize the benefits of Wi-Fi 6, including Gigabit speed, ultra-low latencies, and enhanced reliability benefits across new radio frequencies exclusive to Wi-Fi 6E devices, and deliver a significant improvement in user experience in dense deployments. Combined with Intel® Core™ processors and exceptional Intel wireless innovations, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module can dramatically improve your connected experience at home, work, or on the go.
2nd Generation Intel Wi-Fi 6 Wireless with Extended Wi-Fi 6E (6GHz Band) Support
Greater Network Flexibility
Wi-Fi 6E Tri Band 2x2 160MHz
The Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module supports Wi-Fi 4, 5, 6, and Wi-Fi 6E technologies including Wi-Fi 6 R2 features. By implementing the new Wi-Fi 6E technology, supporting the new 6GHz band that includes up to 1200MHz of new contiguous spectrum (>2x compared to 5GHz) with more Gigabit Wi-Fi options and exclusivity to Wi-Fi 6 products, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module maximizes Wi-Fi 6 and Gigabit Wi-Fi benefits, enabling greater network flexibility, faster downloads, sharing, and backups, as well as reduced latency and improved reliability.
When using Wi-Fi 6 technology with 1024QAM and 160MHz channels, the Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module can deliver nearly 3x higher peak data rates3 (up to 2.4Gbps), and up to 4x capacity improvement in dense or congested environments compared to Wi-Fi 54.
|Bluetooth® 5.3||On top of existing features, Bluetooth® 5.3 includes an Isochronous Channel feature, which lays the foundation for the implementation of next generation of Bluetooth Low Energy Audio. The Bluetooth® 5.3 Core specification also provides the capability to change the transmit power of devices (local and peer) to improve the link quality without consuming extra power.|
|Microsoft* Windows*||Full support for the latest Microsoft* Windows 11* OS required for Intel DCT support.|
(M.2 2230 and 1625)
M.2 2230 modules enable system configuration and platform usage flexibility with the use of a standard Key E socket for attaching the module.
Intel® 1625 modules are design compatible with M.2 1216 CRF1 modules. Intel CNVio interface allows for flexible motherboard routing of up to 10''.
Experience the Intel® Difference
Intel® Double Connect Technology
|On Microsoft* Windows 11* systems, provides the capability of connecting to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz (or 6GHz) networks simultaneously. Combined with Intel® Killer™ or Intel® Connectivity Performance Suite software, Wi-Fi traffic can be routed over either Wi-Fi link, improving latency and throughput for critical applications.|
Worldwide Regulatory Support
Intel® Dynamic Regulatory Solution
|Enables performance-optimized worldwide regulatory compliance SKU. The Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX411 module detects its location and automatically optimizes the Wi-Fi settings to local regulatory requirements, maximizing performance in each geography, simplifying travel experience and global enterprise procurement. Future regulatory changes are easily managed during the product life cycle.|
|Wireless Functionality in Pre-boot Environment||Support for Wi-Fi network and Bluetooth® Low Energy HID connectivity in the platform’s Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) environment during its boot stage. This capability enables use cases like OS recovery over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® Low Energy-based keyboard and mouse connectivity in this pre-boot environment.|
|Intel® vPro® Technology5||Supports Intel’s hardware-based security and management features built into Intel® Core™ vPro® processors and chipsets that enable IT to manage PCs virtually anywhere, anytime, while reducing deployment costs, improving security and ROI.|
|Intel® Active Management Technology6||Using integrated platform capabilities and popular third-party management and security applications, Intel® AMT allows IT or managed service providers to better discover, repair, and help protect their networked computing assets. Intel® AMT is a feature of Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® vPro® technology.|
