ASUS has announced their latest attempt to take over the tech world. ZenWiFi is their newest series of Mesh WiFi systems that can deliver wireless networking to your whole home.
ZenWiFi containues the ASUS tradition of premium design and great performance with a low profile design that blends into any environment.
ZenWiFi series is available in two models: ZenWiFi AX with the latest WiFi 6 (802.11ax) and ZenWiFi AC with WiFi 5 (802.11ac). The ZenWiFi system offers an intuitive setup process with upgraded AiMesh technology. It makes getting a whole home mesh network up and running fast and easy. If like me you prefer to do your own setup, ZenWiFi offers advanced configuration options to fine tune your network..
To ensure a safe and enjoyable home-networking experience, ZenWiFi also comes with AiProtection Pro. The built-in network security with free lifetime signature updates from Trend Micro. AiProtection also includes advanced parental controls to keep kids safe online.
Something I'm not sure I like is that ZenWiFi gives users the ability to configure different SSID names for each of the three WiFi bands. While it allows you to easily connect to either 2.4GHz for wide coverage WiFi or the 5GHz band for high-performance WiFi. I would prefer to let the ASUS Smart Connection feature automatically assign devices to either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band depending on detected wireless signal strength and traffic.
ZenWiFi AC should hit the Australian market in early December 2019 at the launch RRP of AUD $599.00. ZenWiFi AX will be launch slightly later, pricing and ETA still to come.
