Asus BRT-AC828

details: AC2600 Dual-WAN VPN Wi-Fi Router
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2018-01-11
Dual-band AC2600 Wi-Fi not only allows fast and stable connections to multiple devices, but it also offers wider coverage — up to 100 meters on the 2.4GHz band in open areas. Even in complex office layouts, the 4x4 (4-transmit, 4-receive) MU-MIMO design with four external antennas and fine-tuned power output ensures optimized reception for the best possible performance.

For the ultimate speed, the two physical Gigabit Ethernet WAN ports on BRT-AC828 can provide aggregated WAN bandwidth of up to 2Gbps. To ensure non-stop WAN operation, they can be configured as two independent internet connections, with one acting as an automatic backup connection if the other fails.

Link Aggregation on eight Gigabit LAN ports enables up to 4Gbps LAN transfer speed.

Use a USB LTE. modem as a primary or backup internet connection for added versatility and resiliency.

The router features M.2 SATA Slot for faster storage.
