ASUS Announces RT-AC3200


Ultra-fast tri-band AC3200-class router features twin 3x3 802.11ac networks, with Tri-Band Smart Connect intelligent band assignment for maximum device performance

ASUS today announced RT-AC3200, an AC3200-class tri-band wireless gigabit router that is engineered to overcome the Wi-Fi performance challenges of today’s multi-device households. It provides two concurrent three-stream (3x3) 802.11ac 5GHz networks plus a separate concurrent 802.11n 2.4GHz band, enhanced with Tri-Band Smart Connect technology to automatically maximize the performance of each connected device. RT-AC3200 also features ASUS AiRadar with universal beamforming, adaptive Quality of Service (QoS), AiProtection with exclusive Trend Micro™ security and the brand-new Traffic Analyzer. RT-AC3200 has outstanding performance and coverage, and is the ultimate choice for complex home networks with multiple devices using a mix of older and newer Wi-Fi standards.

State-of-the-art wireless technology for stable, reliable high-speed coverage

ASUS RT-AC3200 has six detachable high-performance external antennas that power two concurrent 802.11ac 5GHz networks, each with a three-transmit, three-receive (3x3) antenna configuration. This innovative engineering gives RT-AC3200 blistering speeds of up to 1300Mbit/s (1.3Gbit/s) on each of the 5GHz frequency bands, for a combined total of 2600Mbit/s. Additionally, it uses Broadcom® TurboQAM™ technology to boost 802.11n 2.4GHz performance from 450Mbit/s to 600Mbit/s with compatible devices such as ASUS PCE-AC68. This gives RT-AC3200 an incredible combined maximum concurrent data rate of up to 3200Mbit/s — more than three times the bandwidth of a wired Gigabit Ethernet network.

RT-AC3200 also uses AiRadar universal beamforming and ASUS-exclusive radio frequency (RF) fine-tuning to strengthen wireless connectivity and improve coverage, so users can enjoy stable and reliable connections.

Tri-band Smart Connect intelligently maximizes performance for every device

The explosive growth in laptops, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and other Wi-Fi-enabled gadgets means that in a modern household the available wireless bandwidth is often shared between many devices. In standard routers, as more devices are connected to the same band, slower ones using the older 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi standards can drag down the speed of faster 802.11ac devices.

ASUS RT-AC3200 uses Tri-Band Smart Connect technology to intelligently select the optimum band for each device, based on the device’s speed, its signal strength, and how busy each band is. This means users never have to decide which band to use, as RT-AC3200 does it all automatically. This means users can enjoy better range and faster, more reliable connections — all the time!

Adaptive QoS and Traffic Analyzer — intelligent traffic management and monitoring

ASUS RT-AC3200 has powerful, easy-to-use features that help users manage network traffic for optimum performance. Adaptive QoS is a feature that intelligently and automatically prioritizes and allocates available bandwidth to devices and applications as they need it, ensuring smoothly-streaming HD videos, lag-free online gaming, crystal-clear VoIP calls and uninterrupted web browsing and downloads.

Traffic Analyzer is an exclusive new ASUSWRT feature that gives users an at-a-glance view of what’s happening on the network on a daily, weekly or monthly timescale. Users can see immediately how much bandwidth each user, device or application has used, helping them to reduce internet connection bottlenecks. Traffic Analyzer is also great for parents who want to keep an eye on their children’s internet usage, or for small busin
