ASUS has announced that their RT-AX88U router has been recognised as Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 by the Wi-Fi Alliance. One of the first home WiFi routers to receive this industry standard certification. The RT-AX88U is guaranteed to reliably deliver the full benefits of the latest WiFi 6 technology.
WiFi 6 brings up to 2.3X faster data-transfer speeds and up to 4X greater network capacity than WiFi 5 (802.11ac) dual-band routers. Additional benefits include improvements and optimisations for dense networking environments.
To receive the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 validation from the Wi-Fi Alliance, ASUS RT-AX88U has to pass a series of strict WiFi 6 capability tests. These included assessments for WPA3 and OFDMA-related transmission. The certification also verifies the capability of RT-AX88U for the latest WPA3 security protocol and Wi-Fi Agile Multiband. WPA3 ensures devices can connect to the network securely, and Wi-Fi Agile Multiband improves resource utilization, enabling RT-AX88U to provide a high-quality connection in changing network conditions.
