Starlink WiFi 6 router in operation, attends FCC and IMDA certification

After announcing an innovative “mobile communication tower in space,” Elon Musk’s Starlink is now working on something more mundane. Although the company has experience in satellite and internet communications, it may soon release a new WiFi 6 router. So, here are all the details.

SpaceX’s Starlink is apparently working on a new WiFi 6 router that has been spotted in the IMDA and FCC database. The IMDA certification showed that it has a model number of UTR-232 and was listed as a low power WLAN device. On the other hand, the FCC listing confirmed that it would use the same wireless bands as other WiFi 6 routers.

It is also added that the upcoming router has two built-in LAN ports and will be equipped with two power adapters, namely UTP-231L and UTP-232C. The UTR-232 Wi-Fi 6 router is likely to be a revised version of the UTR-231 Wi-Fi 6 router, which is a 3rd generation mesh router. Recall that the UTR-231 is expected to be an accessory for existing Starlink customers to enhance their connectivity to the Starlink network.

In the past, the Starlink dish was shipped with Gen 1 and Gen 2 WiFi routers that only supported the WiFi 5 standard. The upcoming 3rd generation mesh router with WiFi 6 support means that users can expect much faster broadband speeds. In addition, users also get access to faster broadband, improved energy efficiency on mobile devices, and less bandwidth congestion. This is all the information we have at the moment, so stay tuned for more.
