ASUS Announces a Complete Lineup of 802.11ax Routers


Fremont, CA (June 4, 2018) - The number of wireless devices in our lives is multiplying at a torrid pace. We are bringing more and more connected devices into our homes, including high-bandwidth devices like smartphones, tablets, PCs, game consoles, 4K TVs, digital assistants and an expanding array of IoT gear. That’s a lot to manage under one roof, especially during prime time, when concurrent HD streaming, surfing, and gaming sessions all want their share of available bandwidth. With higher throughput per channel and the ability to pack data from multiple clients more efficiently into the available spectrum, next-generation 802.11ax WiFi is designed for these busy networks.

ASUS is announcing a family of new routers capable of keeping up with your appetite for digital devices. The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 offers the highest speed and capacity for gamers and enthusiasts who demand the very best. It’s joined by the ASUS AiMesh AX6100 WiFi System, a compact mesh networking system that spreads WiFi between multiple hubs to expand coverage for larger homes, and the ASUS RT-AX88U, a feature-packed router tuned for performance and configurability.

ASUS is featuring our lineup of 802.11ax routers during Computex 2018 in Taipei, Taiwan at the ASUS booth, #M410 in Nangang Hall, from June 5-9. For a full rundown of our new 802.11ax product family and 802.11ax technology, please visit us at ASUS EdgeUp.
