ASUS has introduced a new series of Wi-Fi systems for creating ZenWiFi home mesh wireless networks with a wide range of settings. There are two models in the ZenWiFi series: ZenWiFi AX with support for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and ZenWiFi AC with support for Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac).
AiMesh technology makes building a home network a matter of minutes. For users who prefer to manually set all parameters, an advanced mode is provided in which access to the system’s subtle settings is opened.
The systems come with AiProtection Pro software, an integrated security system developed by Trend Micro to provide reliable protection against online threats. AiProtection Pro also includes parental controls to protect children from unwanted information from the Internet.
ZenWiFi allows you to set a separate network name (SSID) for each of the three bands so that users can choose which band to connect to 2.4 or 5 GHz. If desired, you can activate the ASUS Smart Connection function, which will automatically determine the range for connecting devices depending on the signal level and channel load. A special algorithm provides switching between network nodes without loss of connection.
Another distinctive feature of the ZenWiFi system is the ability to allocate one 5 GHz channel for a transit connection, and leave the second channel in the same range for connecting user devices.
The vertical design of the ZenWiFi system is designed with airflow inside the enclosure to cool the system. It accommodates a circuit board and antennas of optimized shape for a high-quality signal.
The ZenWiFi AX system supports the WiFi 6 standard, capable of transmitting data at speeds of up to 6,600 Mbps and a coverage range of over 500 square meters.
The quad-core processor helps unleash the potential of the system is highly loaded networks with a large number of connected devices. ZenWiFi AC system supports WiFi 5 standard for data transfer at speeds up to 3000 Mbps and is suitable for a four-room apartment.
ZenWiFi systems support AiMesh technology. To configure the system, you can use the mobile application or the web interface, and for advanced users, an advanced mode is provided that provides access to additional system parameters, for example, bandwidth management and QoS settings.
AiMesh mesh technology is a solution that allows you to add various ASUS router models to your existing network at any time to expand its capabilities and coverage.
