EERO Pro 6E
Dear Eero, here are the next features that should be considered for the next version of Eero pro line.
1. wifi 6E
2. A 2.5GBPS WAN port.
3. More Ethernet ports.
4. VLAN support Two separate IOT devices from critical devices like computers smart phones and NAS.
5. Cleaner UI the green is awful
I have to agree. On points 1, 4, and partially 5. As to points 2 and 3, most ISP CPE equipment rarely supports anything above 1Gbps for its WAN uplink, and additional PHY is typically unnecessary to the typical consumer (a simple switch will suffice depending on the deployment). As for point 1, I would love to see a 6Ghz (1200Mhz) band available. As to point 3, some form of VLAN implementation would be welcome, especially as IoT devices become more and more prevalent (for Apple users the HomeKit Secure Router function may be something to look into as a very capable alternative - I’ve used it since eero began supporting it). Finally, the app UI can definitely be improved, but what I would really like to see is some form of cloud-based UI that could manage your eero implementation via a desktop/laptop.
2.5G WAN/LAN ports are the next logical hardware upgrade for a future gen-4 eero... (or maybe even multi-G that support 10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M negotiation). With NAS becoming more popular on home LANs, I want to be able to upgrade to multi-Gig speeds even if my ISP speeds won't go over 1 Gig for a while. Of course to the original list, I would add PPPoE so that the curse of double-NAT can be excised without having to use Bridged mode on CenturyLink FTTH installations.
Most of my high-traffic LAN devices are and will remain wired, so traffic traversing an eero should be able to go at top LAN speeds when not using wifi. WiFi airtime can then be reserved for my phones, tablets and IOT devices.
