Asus announced RT-AC5300, the world’s fastest Wi-Fi router during the pre-IFA 2015 press event held at the Bolle Meierei, in Berlin, Germany.
RT-AC5300 is an innovative AC5300-class tri-band wireless router that delivers the world’s fastest Wi-Fi — with Broadcom® NitroQAM™ RT-AC5300 delivers up to 1000Mbit/s on the 2.4GHz band and up to 2167Mbit/s on each of the two 5GHz bands, for a combined total of up to 5334Mbit/s. This gives users a low-latency gaming experience and ultra-fast 4K/UHD video streaming anywhere in the home.
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.
