Asus have unveiled a new wireless router with a unique design at IFA 2015 this week which takes the form of the Asus RT-AC5300 tri-band wireless router, that Asus says delivers the world’s fastest Wi-Fi.
The new Asus AC5300 wireless router is equipped with Broadcom NitroQAM RT-AC5300 delivers up to 1000Mbit/s via the 2.4GHz band and up to 2167Mbit/s via each of the two 5GHz bands.
All combing for a total of up to 5334Mbit/s and design to provide users with ultra-fast 4K/UHD video streaming and low-latency gaming anywhere in the home, says Asus, who explain :
With eight powerful external antennas in a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) configuration, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability are dramatically improved, giving our widest-ever coverage up to 500 square meters. AiRadar beamforming focuses the Wi-Fi signal, giving faster, clearer and stronger Wi-Fi performance for each device.
RT-AC5300 incorporates many advanced technologies to enhance performance, ease of use and stability. Tri-Band Smart Connect ensures that each device is assigned automatically to the most appropriate band for maximum speed and stability. Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) enables multiple devices to connect at their maximum speeds without slowing down the network, and Link Aggregation (802.11ad) can combine two LAN ports into one superfast 2Gbit/s wired connection using two network cables.
AiProtection with Trend Micro security provides three-pronged state-of-the-art home network protection, and AiCloud 2.0 is a personal cloud storage service that lets users access, share and stream their files from anywhere.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by Asus, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
