XFi is a personalized home WiFi experience that gives people a simple digital dashboard to set up their home WiFi network, find their password, see what devices are connected, troubleshoot issues, set parental controls, and even pause WiFi access during dinner or bedtime. And the xFi experience can be controlled via a mobile app, website, and on the TV with the X1 voice remote.
xFi starts with powerful routers that provide the best in-home WiFi coverage. There are two versions – the xFi Gateway and the xFi Advanced Gateway. The latter is capable of delivering multi-gigabit speeds over a wired connection as well as gig speeds over WiFi.
xFi also can be paired with xFi Pods, which seamlessly connect to our xFi Gateways and provide a flexible, whole-home, mesh WiFi solution that reaches every corner of a home. xFi Pods are powered by an adaptive WiFi technology that ensures every device is optimized to provide a great online experience every time.
When a customer signs up for our 1-gig service, we deliver it with the xFi Advanced Gateway, which we built to be the world’s best home Wi-Fi device. The xFi Advanced Gateway is designed to support Gigabit speeds over Wi-Fi. In our labs, we’ve actually tested Wi-Fi speeds faster than 1.5 Gbps, and the xFi Advanced Gateway is capable of going even faster, as Internet speeds increase and Wi-Fi devices become more powerful.
xFi Pods work with the xFi Gateways to continuously monitor and optimize WiFi connections to each device. Powered by a cloud-based, remote management platform, xFi Pods evaluate the WiFi environment to ensure devices are using the ideal bands and WiFi channel. In addition, xFi Pods self-monitor their performance, and can “heal” themselves to deliver the best WiFi experience for each device.
Manage your home WiFi network from your mobile device, laptop, or even X1. Know who's online and with what device. Plus, create custom profiles for each family member to monitor activity by person. Set rules and schedules to manage WiFi access throughout the day on your home network. Block WiFi at bedtime or pause devices to bring the family together during dinnertime or anytime.
