Better Tech Support with Remote View of your Entire In-House Network

Unfortunately, the Internet service experience while using your connected smart devices is only as good as your in-home WiFi. Most consumer-grade Wifi routers which you buy in retail stores do not meet our rigorous Fiber industry standards or fulfill most customer expectations, no matter what the packaging or product marketing claims. Most broadband service calls are wireless-related. Without the ability to see remotely what is happening inside your home WiFi network, it can be difficult to diagnose your real problem devices, and this often leads to frustration and wasted time on the part of consumers and our tech support reps, while trying to troubleshoot WiFi issues. The new Blast router solves this problem because it pairs with your Fiber electronics on the side of your home to provide Directcom tech support reps with an end-to-end, remote view of your entire in-house network and all your connected devices,  so we can quickly and easily diagnose and measure Wi-Fi signal strength, channel capacity, and overall Wi-Fi network performance, and solve your WiFi problems.

The Biggest Home Wi-Fi Challenges
Interference: Doors and walls obstruct Wi-Fi signals. Radio interference from baby monitors, cordless phones, microwave ovens, and garage door openers can degrade performance and disrupt Wi-Fi coverage. As we all add more Wi-Fi smart devices within the home, this problem will only continue to grow. Blast gives you the tools to help solve these problems.
Noisy Neighbors: Most Wi-Fi access points do not follow Wi-Fi best practices of using channels 1, 6, or 11 in the 2.4 GHz band, or they violate good neighbor policy. Eagle Mountain is notorious for having a lot of wireless interference, because highly-connected young families living close together inevitably put out a lot of WiFi signals and overlap networks all the time.

Directcom aims to help our customers overcome these WiFi challenges by using the new Blast WiFi experience, specially designed for our Fiber customers.

Blast Features:

WiFI 6

Only Blast uses the brand new WiFi 6/AX standard to connect with the most power to your newest smart devices. The latest iPhones (iPhone 11, 11 Pro, Pro Max, and the new iPhone SE) are ready for the new AX standard. It’s time to upgrade your experience!

Wi-Fi 6 (AX) is better than Wi-Fi 5 (AC) because:

  • Faster transfer speeds – 40% faster than the fastest Wi-Fi 5. (In theory, you could get a full Gig over WiFi in a perfect environment.)
  • Wi-Fi 6 lets devices send more information with each individual transmission.
  • Wi-Fi 6 lets routers service more devices at once.
  • Your smart devices can conserve battery power by scheduling transmissions.
  • Wi-Fi 6 facilitates better performance in crowded airspace.

Gigabit WiFi

Too often, we see luxury Fiber Internet being degraded by poor-quality WiFi routers inside the home. With all Gigabit-enabled WAN ports, the latest AX-wireless technology, and designed specifically to pair with your fiber electronics seamlessly, the Blast will ensure you can fully enjoy your premium Fiber speeds. Carrier class WiFi means cutting-edge technologies that deliver a new era in the fiber-connected home.

Dual Band Wireless

Now you can run both the old 2.4 GHz (for your old devices) and the newer 5GHz wireless networks inside your home at the same time. 5 GHz, the latest IEEE WiFi standard, provides seven times the capacity as the commonly used 2.4 GHz band.

Unrestricted access to speed at 5GHzMore lanes, higher speeds, less congested. 

Multi-User 8×8 Power

8×8 multi-user multiple input multiple output significantly increases range and speeds throughout the home by multiplying the capacity of the radio link using four separate transmit and receive antennas. This means you can stream more data to multiple devices simultaneously, resulting in faster downloads and smoother streaming to each device.

Beamforming

Beamforming is an enhanced new technology that automatically sends more WiFi power to your devices who need it most, no matter where they are in your home. This is especially useful in large homes where you might be far away from the router. Beamforming is made possible by the use of 4 separate antennas. Beamforming has approximately twice as much signal gain as regular WiFi, assuring that no matter where you are in your spacious home, you will be able to receive a strong WiFi signal.

Quality of Service (QoS)

The Blast allows you to prioritize video streaming and gaming, or customize what traffic you want to make sure gets priority to suit your needs. You can tell the Blast router, for example, to ensure that you will always get priority over guests on your network, to stop that geeky visiting nephew from sucking up all your bandwidth.

Smart Channel Selection (SCS)

Smart Channel Selection will automatically change channels when your network experiences any interference from your neighbors WiFi networks or devices. This is particularly important if you live in apartment buildings or dense neighborhoods like much of Eagle Mountain, where more wireless interference often exists.

Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS)

This technology takes advantage of certain 5 GHz channels that are typically reserved for use by specialized applications such as weather radar. Dynamic Frequency Selection will more than double the number of channels available to you, and allow you to operate with less much interference.
