ASUS Announces RT-AC87U AC2400 Dual-Band Gigabit Wireless Router

ASUS has always been a leader in new technology and that has not changed much in the decades until now. ASUS is offing the world’s first AC2400-class dual-band 802.11ac wireless router with a four-transmit, four-receive (4×4) antenna configuration. The design is really modern as well and it’s easy-to-use, employing the first in the world multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology. This with a combined ASUS AiRadar universal beamforming, adaptive Quality-of-Service (QoS), plus AiProtection with exclusive rights to Trend Micro security (A growing leader in Security software).




The new ASUS RT-AC87U is expertly-engineered for Killer performance and awesome coverage in today’s multi-device homes. Offering a rich 5GHz speeds that makes your Gigabit Ethernet obsolete, and adding with class-leading 2.4GHz speeds and reliable multi-floor coverage, The ASUS RT-AC87U is the perfect choice for Tech hungry household that are constantly at odds with multi-devices and needs for lightning-fast performance for gaming and streaming, rock-solid stability and total peace of mind for communication and work.

Advanced wireless technology for faster-than-wired speeds.
The ASUS AC2400-class RT-AC87U has a mind-blowing 1,734 Mbit/s @ 802.11ac speeds on the 5GHz frequency band – faster than wired Gigabit Ethernet can provide at the current level – It uses the Broadcom TurboQAM to boost the 802.11n in 2.4GHz performance mode from 450 MB/s to 600 MB/s with compatible devices such as ASUS PCE-AC681. This gives the RT-AC87U an amazing combined maximum concurrent data rate of up to 2334 Mbit/s. This is certainly a technological breakthrough for wireless connectivity.

Maximum coverage, with no dead spots.
With everyone over the age of 12 having some sort of smartphone, tablet, laptop, smart TVs and a multitude of other Wi-Fi-enabled gadgets, sharing band width between these many different devices has never been more important. In most of todays common routers, the more devices that are connected the more the network can become overloaded, like traffic in the middle of people trying to make it to work. You get lag and deadlock but the ASUS RT-AC87U uses four high-performance antennas, Actually four separate spatial data streams, ASUS AiRadar, MU-MIMO and adaptive QoS technology to solve these problems. The 4×4 antennas improve range of connectivity by 33% compared to the standard top of the line 3×3 models of today, and typically RT-AC87U can effortlessly cover an area up to 465m2, making it ideal for eliminating ‘dead spots’ in large or multi-floor environments, allowing this device a great way for the on-the-go offices to stay in sync at all times.

Supercharged performance with two dual-core processors.
What Makes the ASUS RT-AC87U is its own Quantenna system-on-a-chip (SoC), that has its own dual-core processor on the die that handles all of the 802.11ac Wi-Fi-related computations. This frees up the other RT-AC87U’s 1GHz dual-core CPU to perform other processing tasks – such as multiple media streaming to different devices on the network and the two dual core processors do this more efficiently by sharing the workload of the entire spectrum of Data needs. The result is a effortless ability for multitasking capability for all household and office devices, giving the owner an outstandingly-responsive super highway of a network and also improving USB storage performance.

The best-ever internet experience, for all devices.
The ASUS use of the AiRadar uses a technique known as universal beamforming. This make it possible to detect the location of where the devices are and individually focus the wireless for that certain device conserving power for other systems farther off and this feature is backwards compatable. The revolutionary and future-proof MU-MIMO technology means that RT-AC87U will be able AMP UP is power for data demand as the demand grows making it work faster and allowing multiple device the free link of operation without having to wait in line for packets to come in so in essence this router’s capacity actually increases, giving all users the best possible internet experience for all at the same time.

Adaptive QoS.
This is data prioritizing and is a feature that intelligently and automatically prioritizes and allocates more or less 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.

Total peace of mind – AiProtection with Trend Micro security.
Lets face it. Home networks are not as simple as they used to be and ASUS is making a way for that through stronger security measures. The ASUS RT-AC87U has introduced the very powerful and new AiProtection feature, with exclusive Trend Micro software technology. This method of security employs a three-stage approach to security – prevention, protection and mitigation – this method can assure peace of mind with state-of-the-art security concerns as it continuously safeguards all users and all connected devices from damaging malware, malicious websites and other cyber-threats, that are so common in our new age of communications. While safeguarding user privacy and keeping a constant check on network security status it can Alert the user whenever an infected device or other potential security threat has been found, such as insecure passwords. and other threats.

All together truly likes the way ASUS is helping to shape the new Technological household with lag free data and blazing speeds that beat LAN wired connections and security to boot this system sounds like a promising start to a beautiful relationship. Thanks ASUS.
