Acer has unveiled the new Connect Vero W6m as a new way to bring Wi-Fi 6E to a home or workspace in an "eco-conscious" package. The mesh system's units are finished with recycled post-consumer plastics, and are also shipped using recycled paper. Nevertheless, they are rated to deliver transfers of up to 7.8 gigabits per second (Gb/s) over tri-band Wi-Fi.

Acer's growing Vero line of "eco-friendly" hardware has officially extended to include its very first router at Computex 2023. Each new Connect W6m mesh module packs its "high-bandwidth" 2GHz quad-ARM Cortex-A53 chipset, 1GB RAM and 4GB internal memory into a minimalist-chic chassis, 30% of which was once post-consumer plastic. Its cobblestone gray finish might indeed go well with one's Vero 15 in its home or office setting.

The Vero Connect W6m also supports an "Eco Mode" that can control when connected devices go to sleep if detected as idle, as well as conserve each module's power use. Nevertheless, it is rated for "enhanced" Wi-Fi 6E tri-Band (2.4/5/6GHz) AXE7800 connectivity. It is estimated to cover up to 930m2 of floor space between a mesh made of 4 W6m modules, or up to up to 465m2 between 2 units.

Acer also asserts that a user's data would be safe on such a system, as the Vero Connect W6m is also the first router to pass EU EN 303 645 (RED) Cyber Security Standard testing. The OEM does, however, note that its configuration and pricing may very from market to market, and indicates that a prospective buyer may need to contact its offices directly to make sure of this information in advance.
