The new Acer Predator Connect X7 5G CPE will provide blazing-fast internet speeds with both 5G and Wi-Fi 7, as well as dual WAN connectivity. Acer says we can expect fast, reliable, and vast network coverage provided by the Predator Connect T7 Wi-Fi 7 Mesh Router, with the capabilities expanded through its multi-link Wi-Fi mesh system, making wired-level latency possible through the use of a mesh setup.

Qualcomm Technologies' advanced quad-core processor is inside of both the X7 and T7 routers, which provide gamers and streamers with boosted online experiences, improved Spectrum Utilization and Wi-Fi 7, as well as enhanced MU-MIMO and OFDMA across connected devices.

Acer says that its new Predator Connect X7 5G CPE stands out on its own as the first to combine 5G and Wi-Fi 7 tri-band BE11000 throughput, offering 3.5Gbps over 5G, with extremely low latency of just 1ms. If you need the best of both worlds, you've got both 5G and ethernet here, incorporating load balancing and failover mechanisms through devices in the mesh network so you get no network disruptions.

The Predator Connect T7 Wi-Fi 7 Mesh Router features support for Wi-Fi 7 tri-band throughput, keeping up with the combined throughput of the BE11000, and can be "effortlessly integrated with multi-unit mesh systems" helped with High-Band Multi-Link Simultaneous for reliable backhaul and better whole home coverage.
