WiFi 7 – 2X Higher Capacity

WiFi 7* introduces all-new ultrawide 320 MHz channels**, doubling data transmission capacity. You can think of networking as a virtual freeway and the doubled bandwidth as a doubling of the number of lanes. Now larger vehicles are allowed to get on the freeway and can pack more data than ever before.

*WiFi 7 features requires WiFi routers and client devices with WiFi 7-supported operating systems to support the corresponding features.
**The 320Mhz in the 6 GHz band may be unavailable in some regions / countries due to regulatory restrictions.

WiFi 7 – 20% Higher Transmission Rate

With the introduction of 4K-QAM, WiFi 7* can improve data transmission rates versus WiFi 6/6E by up to 20%, because a higher QAM can pack signals more densely. Continuing with the freeway analogy, now higher QAM permits more merchandise to be loaded into every vehicle. In other words, you can now upload and download more data in the same time frame as before.

*WiFi 7 features requires WiFi routers and client devices with WiFi 7-supported operating systems to support the corresponding features.

Reliable WiFi with Multi-Link

Before WiFi 7, transmissions were limited to one band, such as 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz. Multi-Link Operation* (MLO) allows a device to simultaneously connect on multiple bands, enabling faster speeds by aggregating bandwidth, with more reliable WiFi connections on multiple concurrently used bands. Connecting to multiple bands in this manner also enables seamless switching — a process that automatically allocates data to the most suitable band, to reduce latency.

RT-BE96U sending out one 5GHz band and one 6GHz band, two bands aggregates with simultaneous MLO technology for larger bandwidth, while 5GHz band and 6GHz combing into one with alternating MLO technology for seamless switch. Two bands received by smart phone, smart phone is connected to 5GHz and 6GHz band simultaneously.
*Simultaneous MLO means STR (Simultaneous Transmit and Receive) mode. Alternating MLO means eMLSR (enhanced Multi-Link-Single-Radio) mode. Firmware support for Multi-link Operation (MLO) on ASUS RT-BE96U is in development (as of September 2023) and will be released in late 2023 or early 2024.

Flexible Network Port Configuration

The RT-BE96U’s dual 10 Gbps ports make it a great choice for servers or NAS devices. These are more convenient than simply combining multiple gigabit Ethernet ports, and they help increase your available bandwidth to avoid data bottlenecks throughout your whole network. Users are also empowered to leverage multiple high-speed internet service providers.

Cool and Stable

The RT-BE96U is engineered to deliver maximum WiFi performance. The increased clearance under the router is designed to improve airflow through the vents, complementing the quadruple heatsink for even greater reliability.
