Introducing the Pakedge® WR-1 Wireless Router with BakPak Lite
The Pakedge WR-1 with BakPak Lite is a powerful, high-performance wireless router designed for today’s small connected home. The WR-1 combines high-speed routing and advanced wireless technology to meet the demands of today's connected home and delivers an exceptional experience at an affordable price.
Delivering 500 Mbps of WAN-to-LAN throughput, dual-band 802.11ac wireless, 2x2 MIMO antenna arrays for data rates of up to 1300 Mbps, and advanced 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO with beamforming technology, the WR-1 wireless router is engineered to deliver a consistent, performance-driven wireless experience that customers with a small home can depend on.
Using the quick start setup wizard, you can have your customers up and running in minutes. If a home requires additional coverage the WR-1 will seamlessly push the configuration to up to two additional WAPs. WR-1 also delivers secure remote access (OpenVPN and Pakedge DDNS), the latest security encryption, and advanced wireless features to ensure better performance for even the most latency-sensitive audio/video streaming applications.

Wave 2 MU:MIMO with beamforming technology
Wave 2 MU-MIMO is the latest, most advanced wireless standard designed to increase wireless performance. MU-MIMO (multi-user, multiple input, multiple output) beamforming technology allows the WR-1 to transmit data to multiple devices simultaneously instead of only one (standard WiFi).
