Acer recently revealed the Connect Vero W6m mesh router, the brand’s first router that’s made with post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials.
This new router’s main claim to fame is that it’s made with 30% PCR plastic, meaning it should be more environmentally friendly than other routers. The router is part of Acer’s Vero line which consists of other devices made with PCR materials.
Aside from its environmentally-conscious design, the router should also be a great partner for good home internet connectivity. Specifically, it comes with Wi-Fi 6E connectivity and conforms with security standards set by the European Commission’s Radio Equipment Directive. It also supports Wi-Fi 6E Triband (2.4 Ghz/5 Ghz/6 Ghz) AXE7800 throughput, and up to 7.8 Gbps to connectivity.
The router can also be paired with up to 4 units for a mesh system that can cover a wider area.
“We are thrilled to expand Acer’s portfolio of network devices with the launch of the Acer Connect Vero W6m Wi-Fi 6E mesh router, engineered with support for Wi-Fi 6E tri-band connectivity to provide swift and secure connections with vast network coverage within any home or office locations,” said Wayne Ma, General Manger, IoB, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “The performance-driven router is also the latest addition to our growing Vero line of eco-conscious products, embodying Acer’s commitment to fulfilling its environmental responsibility and helping minimize carbon footprint.”
Pricing and availability of the Connect Vero W6m will be announced soon.
