Asus announces world’s first dual-band 802.11ac router with fast combined AC1900 data rates of 1900Mbit/s at Computex 2013
Asus today announced the RT-AC68U dual-band 802.11ac router with personal cloud storage support at Computex 2013. The Asus RT-AC68U is the world’s first dual-band 802.11ac router with blisteringly fast combined AC1900 data rates of 1900Mbit/s. 802.11ac is three-times faster than 802.11n, but the RT-AC68U is faster still with a 2.4GHz data rate of 600Mbit/s. This is an incredible 33% faster than ordinary Wi-Fi routers, making the RT-AC68U perfect for taking the strain off congested home networks. The RT-AC68U also features Asus AiRadar technology that uses beamforming to focus the Wi-Fi for a stronger connection that’s less prone to interference. As a result, the RT-AC68U gives 150% greater coverage than other routers.
The RT-AC68U also includes exclusive Asus AiCloud technology, with a Router-to-Router Sync feature that makes light work of sharing files without the fuss of managing user access rights and FTP access. A simple invitation allows photos, videos and other files on USB-attached storage to be synchronized automatically to USB-attached storage on other compatible ASUS routers, without the need for a switched-on PC at either end.
