ASUS Chromebook Flip CX1_15.6 inch

TAIPEI, Taiwan, January 25, 2022 Today marked the launch of ASUS ZenWiFi® Pro ET12, a high-performance tri-band WiFi 6E (802.11ax) mesh networking system designed to provide fast whole-home WiFi coverage.

ASUS ZenWiFi Pro ET12 combines performance and beauty in a perfectly balanced package that works with the ASUS WiFi 6E ecosystem to takes the capabilities of whole-home mesh networks to the next level. The brand-new design incorporates a stunning transparent antenna compartment on the top, creating an elegant and futuristic look that will enhance any home.

Engineered to deliver maximum WiFi performance — up to 11000 Mbps — from the next-gen 2.0 GHz 64-bit Broadcom CPU and Broadcom WiFi chipset, the tri-band ASUS ZenWiFi Pro ET12 also allows users to dedicate the 6 GHz band as a powerful low-interference backhaul connection between nodes. The router also offers optional automatic selection of the best backhaul connection type depending on the environment.

Next-gen performance

ASUS ZenWiFi Pro ET12 is one of the first models in the new ASUS ZenWiFi Pro series, a series engineered to deliver extreme performance for demanding users. This two-node WiFi 6E mesh networking system is powered by the next-generation 2.0 GHz 64-bit Broadcom CPU and WiFi chipset, which increase throughput by up to 18% compared to the previous WiFi 6 platform. The 12-stream design delivers combined total speeds of up to 11000 Mbps across the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz frequency bands. The newly-released 6 GHz spectrum, available only to WiFi 6E devices, offers up to seven 160 MHz channels , and is ideal for use as stable and fast low-interference backhaul or fronthaul connection.

To unlock the full potential of high-speed networking for wired router-to-client fronthaul and router-to-node backhaul connections, ASUS ZenWiFi Pro ET12 includes two 2.5 Gbps Ethernet ports. These ports support link aggregation, enabling ultrafast speeds from the router to bandwidth-heavy devices such as NAS devices.

Wider coverage

ASUS ZenWiFi Pro ET12 includes ASUS RangeBoost Plus — the latest, most powerful version of RangeBoost — which improves coverage for all WiFi devices including legacy devices. In combination with ASUS RF technology and other exclusive ASUS technologies, RangeBoost Plus dramatically improves WiFi signal range and coverage by up to 38% . The two-node configuration supplied should be sufficient for coverage up to approximately 6000 square feet. Coverage can be extended even further for larger homes using any ASUS AiMesh-compatible router.

Futuristic design

The ASUS ZenWiFi Pro ET12 system consists of two identically-styled nodes. These feature a futuristic new look inspired by architecture, with vertical ridges adorning the black casing. On the top of the casing is a transparent-walled compartment housing the eight powerful antennas. The overall appearance is totally modern and elegant, presenting a perfect balance of power and beauty.
